Rare find. Why choose between lake and farm life, when you can have this luxury equestrian estate in the Woods of Lake Oconee. The property includes 10 private acres, a 6,600sf custom brick ranch with four ensuite bedrooms, plus gorgeous 2500sf 6-stall horse barn.
The wrap around porch, big windows, and soaring ceilings make this the perfect home for people who love living with their land. The quality is apparent as you approach the home - note the massive 8ft front door with a graceful arch above. Step inside and let’s explore. The vaulted ceiling in the foyer is a very nice touch. The study/office is to the right and spacious dining room to the left. Straight ahead is the living room - light streams into the room from a pair of picture windows, and you’ll catch your first glimpse of the beautiful barn - hold that thought until our home tour is complete. Don’t you love the architectural detail of the angle of the massive stacked stone hearth. Entertainers will enjoy the wet bar. The kitchen and breakfast room are steps away - windows have been thoughtfully placed to offer pastoral views wherever you turn. There is plenty of countertop, and a massive island with 5 burner gas cooktop - imagine the meals you’ll prepare here. The pantry is located close to the refrigerator. The breakfast room includes a wall of cabinets, with glass doors on the upper cabinets to showcase your best dinnerware. It’s just a few steps to the screen porch - imagine morning coffee watching your horses grazing in the paddock, or cuddling fireside on a cool fall day.
The master bedroom is tucked privately on the backside of the home, also with barn views. The ensuite bath is spacious, with a large tiled shower and Kohler deep soaking tub. The elongated double vanity features a beautiful granite countertop. You’ll love the large walk-in closet, customized for maximum storage. All four bedrooms feature large ensuite bathrooms and custom closets - two are on the main level and two are on the terrace level. The hall powder room continues the horse theme, with a pair of horsehead towel rings. The laundry room is large, and full of cabinets with granite counters. Step through to the 3 car garage, and you’ll find more evidence that a savvy horse person designed this farm - the garage includes a full bath and separate laundry room - perfect for cleaning up after a day of riding. Above the garage is a large unfinished room - plumbing is already roughed in.
Walk down the stairs to the terrace level, and you’ll discover a large family room with a pair of French doors leading to the barn. The massive brick hearth complements the warmth of the hand-stained trim, and the mantle features a pair of custom corbels carved in a horse motif. Two large bedrooms flank the family room, each with ensuite bath and walk in closet. Behind the family room, you’ll find a semi-finished space that would make the perfect media room. There is also plenty of room for storage on this level.
The custom home is spacious - with 3931sf of finished living space on the main level, and 3931sf terrace level, about 2/3’s finished, plus more than 1500sf of porch and deck. Quality details abound - Kohler ¾” shower valves for powerful spray, a pair of 85 gallon hot water heaters with instant hot pump, 3 HVAC units for most efficient heating and cooling, Anderson Windows and Doors, plus 5/8” drywall throughout. All decking is maintenance free Trex.
The 2500sf 6-stall barn is really special - low maintenance brick exterior, enclosed on three sides by paddock fencing, with extended roof lines providing shelter from rain and sun. The interior glows with Brazilian cherry tongue and groove hardwood. Poured concrete center aisle, with mats over dirt in the stalls, plus Nelson waters and overhead fans in each stall. The custom stall fronts add beauty and function, and your horses will love the dutch doors that give each stall direct exterior access. Both the kitchen and tack room feature a bank of custom cabinets with granite counters. The wash rack features hot and cold water, of course, and also a swinging shower arm. A paved drive winds around the home directly to the barn - makes hay and feed deliveries easy.
The land is set up nicely - with home and barn tucked privately towards the rear of the property. The four acre field adjoining the barn is irrigated - there is room for another small paddock on the other side of the driveway. The 660ft deep well supplies ample water for landscaping and irrigation, while the home and barn water is supplied from a community well. All fencing is low maintenance composite board. Need more land? Adjoining land may be available, including land with direct lakefront access.
