Description
Total tranquility with a mountain top view! Huge 6 bedroom home on 8.6 deeded acres close in to Atlanta. A long gravel driveway leads to the freshly painted Cape Cod style home. Watch the deer graze and the gorgeous birds that stop to rest on the property, hike your own woods, grow your own garden, raise your own chickens, and let your children run wild and free as they explore and learn all about the beauty and wonder of nature just 4 exits outside the I-285 perimeter of Atlanta. This is definitely a one-of-a-kind property. You will have your own private view of Stone Mountain from the back of the lot. It is a perfect home for a large family; a family that wants to live in their own private retreat; someone who owns their own business and needs lots of space for equipment; or to run as a Bed & Breakfast, an AirBNB or an event facility for family reunions, private weddings, etc. There are no neighbors - only a church and the Smoke Rise golf course are across the street from the front of the property. Guests are amazed at how large the home is when they walk inside as the exterior view gives no hint of the square footage inside. The home has a huge open concept eat-in country kitchen with an island, fireplace, walk in pantry, 2 sinks, 2 stainless steel dishwashers, and a stainless steel frig. There is a large separate dining room with a bay window and fireplace; a foyer; a living room; and a den that looks like a room straight out of a mountain ski lodge with exposed wood beams on the ceiling and a rock fireplace that covers an entire wall . One bedroom and one full bath are downstairs. There is a large sunroom off the back of the kitchen where you can sit and enjoy a meal or favorite beverage as you gaze at the birds and deer that sometimes eat right outside the back door. There is a separate laundry room and a 2 car garage. Upstairs are 5 bedrooms and 2 full baths. Every room has a beautiful view. A tiny cottage also sits on the property giving the landscape a touch of history and character. A large scuppernong arbor adorns the front yard and provides lots of delicious fruit in season. Massive old hardwoods add to the natural allure throughout the property as well as the many natural wild flowers that bloom in the spring. With over 3,400 square feet inside the home and 8.6 acres, space abounds inside the house and outside to entertain or host events for large crowds. Just being on the property evokes nostalgia for the good old days...a slower-paced, simpler, relaxing time making wonderful memories with family and friends. The property is zoned R-150, so can be subdivided into 1 acre lots.
