You’ll feel at home as you approach the custom brick ranch home - the deep front porch spans the width of the home and the stately columns evoke southern charm. Open the front door and step into the expansive great room with dining area to the right and a gathering space ahead. The full masonry fireplace is flanked by a pair of French doors that lead to the screened porch at the rear of the home. The country kitchen is to the right - cooks will appreciate the efficient work triangle. The tile floor is easy to maintain, and the breakfast bar is perfect for visiting while meals are prepared - don’t miss the gleaming granite countertops! Imagine enjoying your morning coffee on the private kitchen deck, as nature comes alive all around. The custom desk cabinet will be the perfect spot for keeping your household files organized. The laundry room adjoins the kitchen, and the oversized 2 car garage is just steps away. The fourth bedroom or guest suite is located privately above the garage. The bedroom wing is on the opposite side of the home, with a pair of bedrooms facing the front side of the property sharing one full bath, and the large master bedroom with ensuite bath facing the back yard. You’ll enjoy the direct access to the large screened in porch. The master bath features a deep soaking tub and separate shower and dual sinks, plus a large walk-in closet with built in shelving. This classic southern home has a steep roof pitch with a huge attic space above the main living area - so if you need more room, be sure to check that out when you tour the home.
The farm was developed by a professional pilot for personal use, and features an 1800ft grass airstrip plus a 40x44 hanger. The hanger has tall side walls and a concrete floor, with electric and water already in place, making it suitable for many purposes. With about 20 acres of established grass on the front side of the property, it would be easy to set up a horse farm or livestock operation. The back 20 acres is largely wooded, with a mix of hardwoods and pines typical of the Georgia Piedmont plains region. Sandy Creek crosses the interior of the property - a robust creek that attracts plenty of wildlife. This property would be perfect for a naturalist or hunter, and it would be easy to expand the existing trail system. The gardens surrounding the home are delightful, with huge magnolia trees providing shade, and an abundance of mature plantings drawing birds and butterflies. The large dog pen is well-shaded, and close to the home. The home sits privately about a quarter mile off the road, and there is a paved parking pad and paved walkways surrounding the homesite.
