In the midst of North Georgia's horse country this magnificent property is on 2 private lakeside acres. Stephen Fuller designed this replica of an 1850s farmhouse. Attention to authenticity is meticulous, yet the home offers every contemporary feature expected by today's homebuyers. Finishes throughout include wide plank pine floors, handmade shutters on most windows, massive beams re-purposed from a mill in Rome, GA, period-specific hardware, & Moses Willard light fixtures. The main level offers open yet distinctive spaces including expansive family room with a dramatic fireplace & custom bookshelves, banquet-sized dining room w/windows overlooking the lake, bright & airy Nantucket room anchored by a cozy fireplace w/windows to inspiring views of the lake & surrounding property, cheerful breakfast room, 2 of 3 master suites & a powder room. Cabinetry & millwork throughout was hand made on site by David Louden whose work is featured in high-end design publications throughout the US. The 2nd level includes a 3rd master suite w/large sitting area and ample storage. The terrace level is breathtaking, w/brick flooring, a wine cellar (originally designed as a 'buttery' in the style of an 1850s farmhouse), a wet bar, a 4th bedroom & full bath with steam shower, an exercise room & a large flex-space with a 3rd dramatic fireplace. The grounds include a large brick patio overlooking the lake, lush gardens, extensive landscaping, and herb garden & lake frontage shared with only 5 other homes. This private estate is located in Cherokee County, but just a mile from the City of Milton line, & minutes from downtown Alpharetta. It is perfect for equestrian enthusiasts, or for anyone desiring a peaceful setting with gracious country living.
