This classic Cape Cod home offers the best of the old and the new. Its presence at the corner of Vernon Road and Cherokee Road has attracted those with the most decerning taste for almost a century and was originally designed by the renowned Norris and Lynch Architects. Each room of the interior boasts 10-foot ceilings on the main level and invites a purpose and pleasure to be in. Being at the peak of Cherokee Road on the slightly graded hill provides natural light that pervades every room of the house throughout the day. From the moment you arrive home into the porte cochere, through the professionally landscaped and mature grounds, there is a sense of arrival. A dining room large enough to host the grandest gatherings flows effortlessly into a perfectly appointed cook’s kitchen with a large wooden topped island for creating culinary masterpieces. For intimate gatherings, the patio off the kitchen provides a fireplace, grilling stations and a TV for fun sports event gatherings. A breakfast room provides the perfect transition to the large family room with a fireplace and a plethora of comfortable seating for all. A light-filled balcony off the family room overlooks the most beautiful pool and garden area you can imagine. Another outdoor fireplace offers the perfect gathering area for fun spring and fall night gatherings by the blue stone deck surrounding the pool. The kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms have been classically updated and renovated at various stages by the highly attentive owners. The second floor with nine-foot ceilings, hosts a graciously sized primary bedroom with its own fireplace. The primary bathroom suite is a sanctuary within itself with a separate shower, a tub and two large closets. Three additional large bedrooms upstairs with large en suite closets are served by two additional bathrooms, all of which have easy access to the separate laundry room on this level. The terrace level surprises with a cozy temperature-controlled wine cellar. The ultimate bonus for this .68 acre site is a highly coveted guest home. There is a wonderful living area on the main level with a full bedroom/bathroom suite on the second level, along with a kitchenette with all the space and appliances needed for your longer-term guests. This property is the complete package for comfortable Buckhead living.
