With your home just steps away from Lake Lanier, set on a private lot, and three stories of living space loaded with six bedrooms, five-plus bathrooms, and a full terrace level suite – all in a gated subdivision that offers private tennis courts and a pool – this Oakwood home offers no-compromise palatial living.
It’s a luxury space spilling over with details wherever you look, starting with the elegant, curved staircase in foyer that leads to a landing finished with a wrought-iron railing overlooking the mammoth living space. A gorgeous stone fireplace here is bounded by built-in bookcases, and the main level is finished throughout with shining hardwood floors. An exquisite owner’s suite is on the main level with two closets and an en-suite bath offers a large standing shower, a whirlpool tub set below a set of windows, and double vanities on a long stone countertop. The gourmet kitchen is a showpiece, with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, a double oven, and a wood-trimmed stove vent that’s a thing of beauty.
Wherever you look on the home’s three finished levels, your eyes will find designer touches like crown molding and chair rails (often with beveled wood paneling below). Even the ceilings feature a designer’s touch, with coffered ceilings, tray ceilings, double-tray ceilings in many of the spaces. Bonus rooms abound, too, including one ready for a home gym or yoga space, a home office that’s lit by windows and a line of wall sconces, and a home theater. The terrace level is finished with new tile and sports a sauna, wine cellar, and its own finished kitchen and living room. Out back, find a large deck off the main level and a large covered space accessible from the terrace level below that – giving you options for outdoor entertaining no matter the weather. Imagine unwinding after a long day, pulling into the three-car garage, pouring a drink, stepping into your outdoor sanctuary, and listening to the soft sounds of nature in the wooded verge on the edge of the back yard.
