5 Bedrooms | 6.5 Bathrooms | 6,863 Sq Ft | 1.69 Acres
This attractive home is well-sited on a gentle hill in one of Buckhead’s most beautiful neighborhoods, Whitewater Creek. Perhaps what is most extraordinary about this property is the location. So convenient to the heart of Buckhead, all top private and public schools, and just minutes to Midtown Atlanta thanks to convenient I-75 access. This convenience to city amenities is perfectly juxtaposed with direct access to Buckhead’s largest and most beautiful greenspace. Just 100 yards from the home is the entrance to the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area. This unspoiled parkland includes 400 acres and over 10 miles of hiking trails along the Chattahoochee River. So many outdoor activities can be enjoyed here, from a hike along the many trails, rafting and kayaking along the rapids, mountain biking, or enjoying the ‘unofficial’ dog park on a small island just offshore.
Adjacent To Hundreds of Acres of Parks
Just 100 yards away is the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area. Enjoy Atlanta’s best hiking with high elevations overlooking a surprisingly wild vista, so close to the heart of Buckhead.

Take your pick of exciting water sports on class 1 and 2 rapids, kayaking, paddle boarding, or fishing.
The power of the river, the wildness of nature, and stunning views are all on dramatic display here, and right outside your doorstep.
Double driveways, a private 1.7 acre heavily landscaped lot, guest apartment and a 3-car garage with motor court lend the property the feel of an intimate estate. This lovely home is well-built hardcoat stucco over brick, and is in excellent condition. Originally the home was built in the 1960s but additions and a major renovation in 2015 have given it a fresh modern look and feel. The fenced backyard is ideal for entertaining with a renovated pool and pergola area, grilling patio off the kitchen, cozy gathering areas, and a stone fire pit. The rest of the private backyard is surrounded by mature foliage and forest.
The floorplan features formal rooms along with wide-open spaces surrounding the kitchen. A library lined with shelves, a formal sitting room with fireplace, and a formal dining room will satisfy your need for formal spaces while the stunning new kitchen is open to a large family room, bar area, informal dining, and an absolutely beautiful solarium. The custom solarium provides a year-round retreat with beautiful views of the forest and the pool area.
The master bedroom wing on the main level is simply unmatched in size – the absolute largest you will see even in a much higher price range – with the most desirable features, including a fireplace in the sitting room, massive separate his & hers closets trimmed in custom wood, separate his & hers full baths with heated floors and lovely finishes, high ceilings, beautiful wood floors, and windows on all sides with double French doors leading to a walkout balcony overlooking the backyard and pool.
The walk-out terrace level is filled with light and features a theatre, wet bar, full bathroom, fireplace and several storage spaces to help keep you organized. The perfect place for family movie night or hanging out with friends.
