This Old World manor house is nothing short of spectacular! Designed by Jon Ambrose, the architecture is both whimsical and timeless. Every part of the home has a story to tell, from the antique chimney caps designed to resemble chess pieces to the balustrade taken from a historic Philadelphia estate. The interior doors are solid walnut and were salvaged from an Embassy in Washington D.C. Excellent location in the Arden/Habersham neighborhood, close to award-winning schools.
The authenticity extends to the quality of construction. Endless features include a jaw-dropping two-story oak paneled library, 5 fireplaces, 2 laundry rooms, a whole-house stereo system with built-in speakers, and an in-law/nanny suite with a separate entrance on the terrace level (plumbing for a 2nd kitchen is in place). The master suite has a sunny sitting room with a fireplace, recently renovated master bath, breakfast bar all overlooking the lush & totally private backyard. Multiple terraces along the back and side of the home provide intimate gathering areas and wonderful flexibility for entertaining.
The pool area is simply perfect and flows effortlessly from the terrace level. The recently renovated and heated saltwater pool features dramatic fountains. The bluestone patio surrounding the pool has a built-in gas grill and speaker system with space to entertain 100 guests or more. Multiple bathrooms are accessible to the pool from the terrace level. The manicured gardens were professionally designed by Boxwoods and feature outdoor lighting – like uplights in the woods, moonlights, path lighting, step lights and more – all controllable by iPad.
The roof is stunning Vermont slate, and the home was framed using steel beams with much of the structure concrete. The exceptional details in this home will keep you (and your many guests) entertained and delighted for years to come.
