Mature lush landscaping on a serene fenced quarter-plus acre is the backdrop to this picture perfect pristine two-story blending classic exterior architecture with fabulous interior contemporary design! This elegant custom-built 4-bedroom, 3½-bath dream home provides a unique opportunity to own a one-of-a-kind home detailed with masterful perfection throughout. Captivating appeal & clear pride of ownership begins at the street with new front landscape foreshadowing the exceptional home within!

A "Chattahoochee" stone walkway leads up to the double door front entry. Once within the Italian ceramic tile center-entry foyer, it is clearly evident that this home was planned with the utmost thought - designed for entertaining & quiet family moments with equal ease. Views from the foyer span the entire home, front to back, and sunshine streams in from two sides, adding an inviting serenity. On opposing sides of the foyer are the formal living & dining rooms. Both feature bayed window seats, abundant recessed can lights & space ample to easily accommodate large groups as well as intimate family get togethers. Sharing the entire back of the house is the family room & kitchen-breakfast areas. The airy family room provides a grand picture window overlooking the private backyard, a gas fireplace & game area. Conveniently open to the buffet-style wall of breakfast room cabinets & adjacent massive island kitchen, entertaining here is a pure delight! The kitchen design, anchored by a cooking island and breakfast bar, features custom cabinetry finished in light Maple, solid-surface counters, mirrored back splashes, built-in appliances, pull-out shelving, twin lazy Susans, recessed lighting & light flooding in from two sides -- a kitchen to fulfill demanding dreams! Detailed to perfection, both function and feature share equal command here with added easy access to the lush backyard from the breakfast area French door. A butler's pantry separates the kitchen & formal dining areas; a central powder room provides ready access to all the main floor action; & a "finished" laundry room with matching cabinets & folding counters off the kitchen leads into the oversized 2½-car garage complete with abundant storage closets. On the upper level through double doors is a romantic king-sized master bedroom suite accented by unique ceiling architecture, step-down entry, a dressing area, airy sky lit Spa bath with separate shower, enclosed commode & two massive walk-in closets. Three family bedrooms on this level include a bedroom suite complete with its own bath & large walk-in closet, a second suite with huge walk-in closet & direct access to the shared hall bath, and a smaller bedroom with lovely views of the backyard. Abundant recessed cans lights appoint all rooms on this level carrying through that feature from the main floor below. Add a private fenced backyard with free-form Chattahoochee stone patio; a full ready-to-finish basement, pre-sectioned & plumbed for a full bath -- includes architectural plans and sprinkling system for finishing ease; & two-zoned heat and air to the incredible elements of this extraordinary home - a truly masterful blend of design, function & execution!
