Your own private retreat, just minutes from Lakes Oconee and Sinclair. This charming French Tudor farmhouse with 5 bedrooms, 4 full baths and a powder room sits on a hilltop, with sweeping farm views and a 3+/-ac stocked pond.
Entering the foyer, you’ll be drawn into the living room - the soaring 2-story vaulted ceiling, massive stucco hearth, and wall of windows across miles of treetops will entrance you. Just beyond is the spacious dining room - perfect for large dinner parties or intimate fireside dining. The well-appointed kitchen is just to the left - with a 5-burner gas cooktop, and wall microwave and electric ranges nearby. Countertop is a mix of butcher block and granite and the custom cabinets are plentiful. Note the deep farmhouse sink, and the walk-in pantry. As you enter the home from the three car garage, you’ll find a powder room, laundry room, and a large home office space with more than 25ft of cabinets and granite countertops. The large main level master is pond-side, with direct access to the deck. There’s a pair of walk-in closets, and lovely master bath with deep soaking tub and separate tiled shower.
Upstairs you’ll find one bedroom with a private ensuite bath, and two additional bedrooms with a shared bath. There’s also a library on this level, with built-in bookcases. Downstairs there’s an additional bedroom with ensuite bath, plus a small sitting room. Everyone will enjoy the gameroom, and the wine cellar.
Natural materials like cedar beams, wide oak plank flooring, and stucco fireplace make the interior warm and inviting. More than 1300sf of open and covered porch invites you to entertain both outside and in; surround sound speakers are located throughout the decking.
The custom home was built in 2005 with quality materials including Pella windows and a 40 year architectural shingle roof. The exterior is natural color real stucco, with cedar board and batten on the 3 car garage and trim. Landscape irrigation is supplied by a pump in the pond.
The 21 acres of land is rolling, with a mix of pasture and woods, and a 2+.- acre fenced paddock. There’s room to add more fencing - potentially another 10 acres could be used for horses or livestock. The gated entrance is flanked with magnolia trees and boxwoods, and elegant Italian cypress trees line the drive. There’s plenty of room for your toys, with a 3car garage and drive under boat bay.
