Don't miss your chance to own this beautiful estate nestled in the rolling hills of North Georgia! This stunning property in the highly sought-after Waleska community is affectionately known as Sassafras Hill as a call-back to the trees that dot the wooded approach to the manor. The property covers 23 acres & is home to 3 creeks & a stunning pond that is shared with the neighboring property. It also features mature hardwoods & a sprawling pasture that would make the perfect place for an equestrian arena & barn. The home is a classic Southern Living design, in the Cape Cod architectural style, with a stately brick entrance off the circular driveway. The garage is tucked smartly out of view for the family entrance, & leads right into the kitchen & mudroom. Storage is a theme throughout the home, with beautiful built-ins, spacious closets, & plenty of walk-in attic access plus a full basement, giving you plenty of space to tuck away holiday & seasonal items, tools, implements & more. From the front door, you are swept into a grand foyer with views into the formal dining room & family room, as well as the beautiful stairway that leads to the second-story landing. The family room features a stunning vaulted ceiling with reclaimed wood (locally sourced by the original owner), with a pickled finish & a cozy gas fireplace. Next, we enter the formal library & music room, with stunning floor to ceiling bookcases, an oversized window seat & enough room to comfortably hold a baby grand piano. This room also features a secret entrance to the master bedroom, hidden in the built-in cases. The dining room lends itself easily to entertaining & offers original tall wainscotting that creates a lovely picture rail around the room. The adjacent alcove features a beautiful window seat overlooking the flower beds & a stunning built-in cabinet that is ideal for additional serving pieces, fine china, or linens. The dining room leads to the expansive kitchen, which is an entertainment space in its own right! The coffee bar/breakfast bar area features a sink & plenty of counter space, & sits across from the walk-in pantry. Beyond that, you enter the main kitchen with an enormous island for cooking & entertaining. The granite countertops provide plenty of workspace, & the classically-stained cabinets provide tons of storage! The built-in desk provides a wonderful space to manage the household in a convenient corner. In addition to the eat-in island, there is a full size dining area in the kitchen as well, which is flanked by a full-height built-in display case & opens conveniently out onto the grill deck through a set of French doors. The far end of the kitchen leads to the family entrance, mud room, & oversized two-vehicle garage. The owners suite on main opens onto the giant screened porch which overlooks the pasture where deer & turkey frequently graze. The sun-deck also provides a private outdoor space to enjoy in solitude. The oversized owners bath includes a giant soaking tub, a newly updated walk-in tile shower & double-vanity, & opens into a large walk-in closet. Moving up the extra-wide stairs, you find the second living level. The largest of the 3 bedrooms here features an en-suite office & enormous walk-in closet, plus direct access to the Jack & Jill bathroom with its own storage cabinets & vanity, making this space ideal as a junior suite. The other two generous-sized bedrooms round out the living space. There are multiple walk-in attic access points as well. The full-sized daylight basement has double-door access & is unfinished & ready for your future bonus room or game rooms. Schedule your private tour today for a chance to own this exquisite estate!
