A STUDY IN ELEGANCE, an In-Town location, and a sprawling 17 acres are all part of this Estate property with its custom-built residence. Thought, design, quality, and comfort are all evident in the myriad of details throughout the spacious and warmly accommodating four bedroom, four-and-a-half bath, two-level home with a walkout daylight basement.
Eye-pleasing touches flourish within – gleaming oak flooring of solid plank tongue-n-groove, hand-made custom cherry cabinetry, frosted glass doors, arched windows, burnished fixtures, and speckled granite all cast their charm.
A formal entry through the slate-n-stone portico and arched doorway leads one into the open layout and expanded living space. A tall, stacked-stone wood-burning fireplace (with gas starter) anchors the gabled bleached-pine planking greatroom and the adjacent sunroom looks out onto a terraced backdrop.
In the kitchen you’ll find handsome granite countertops and bar, rich cherry sculpted cabinetry, heavy stainless appliances, a hidden coffee cubby, and a generous walk-in pantry. A cook’s five-burner gas cooktop and electric oven with side warmer, all framed by a hand-stacked stone arch and tile background, beckons a culinary preparation. Opening out into the living space, from the kitchen you’ll be able to cook, converse, and entertain at the same time.
On the main level the spacious Master Suite strikes an air of repose while looking great doing it with its paneled ceiling, moldings, oak flooring, thick plantation shutters, and expansive sun-drop windowing. A capacious walk-in closet and a gentlemen’s closet each offer built-in shelving with cabinetry and drawers . Two shoe closets round out the storage area.
The Master Bath includes a long dual vanity of cherry cabinetry and burnished fixtures, a soaking tub with an arched-window seat, and large walk-in shower. The entire area is warmly cast in a variegated stone tiling.
A second bedroom also resides on the main level also as an ensuite layout with a marbled and tiled private bath. As a primary entry into this main level a two-car garage with its speckled epoxy floor walks you inside. The laundry room with its gleaming cabinetry, workspace, and sink is adjacent. A powder room is convenient to the kitchen and living space and looks classic with its sculpted vanity.
Upstairs is a third bedroom and third bath and a fourth bedroom with an ensuite bath layout. The bonus room is designed to easily be converted with a fifth bedroom with closet and bath access. There’s also a large office/study plus a storage room, a luggage room, and easy access into the attic space.
A full daylight basement beneath has both finished and unfinished space and plenty of room for a workshop, projects, and storage. Stubbed for a bath with tub in place it can easily finish out as an apartment with its own private terrace entrance with space to spare.
Equipment for the home includes dual HVAC units, an in-ground 1000 gallon propane tank, a tankless-endless hot water supply, a whole-house Generac generator, City water plus a drilled well for gardening/recreation/washing, and a whole-house monitored security system. The entire foundation and every wall on the property is of steel-reinforced poured concrete, substantial and permanent. The cementitious fiber board n batten siding and general construction were all done from a perspective of longevity, ease of maintenance, and visual appeal.
Total privacy is assured and nary a bit of rushing traffic will you hear even though the location is within the City of Dahlonega. Paved roadways bring you all the way up to the southern-exposure home and there’s an expansive concreted parking and project area adjacent to the garage plus additional space on the terrace level.
The setting is a wooded acreage delight with a small creek of tumblestone cascades and little waterfalls plus a small branch emanating from a spring in the upper corner of the property that flows alongside in little clear-watered and splashy rivulets. Carpets of ferns, granite projections, and showy mountain laurel along with natural resplendent foliage both lush and canopied cover the property.
Expect some mountainous terrain along with gentle rounded hilltop and ridgeline areas. A walking trail up along the creek along with sitting areas, across the ridgeline and back down the branch to the home would be a rewarding project to enact. There's room here to roam and play and the wildlife will be your neighbors.
A beautiful and private acreage setting along with a fine home in one of the best small towns in America make for most desirable circumstances. $949,900.
