A winding drive leads to the gated entrance of 1823 River Forest Road. The location is ideal, set in the heart of Buckhead’s prestigious Paces neighborhood on one of the best streets! Beyond the gates you will find a stately brick home with a classic rocking chair front porch situated on over 2 wooded acres. A private well provides water for irrigation, and the home includes a whole-house generator.
The back of the home is built for seasonal fun and entertaining, with an in-ground pool, patio, and generous wrap-around deck overlooking the beautiful greenery. In addition to the attached 2-car garage, a separate garage provides an additional enclosed parking space.
Once inside, the two-story foyer provides access to the formal living and dining rooms, and other common areas. The formal living room features a fireplace with access to the deck.
Along the rear of the home, the spacious eat-in kitchen has a warm farm-house vibe featuring wood beams, wood floors and brick accent walls, and a lovely breakfast room. White cabinets and counters line the kitchen providing an abundance of storage and food prep areas.
The inviting sunroom will undoubtedly be your favorite room! It spans the entire back of the home, and provides natural light through skylights and a wall of windows overlooking the pool and patio. Family and guests will enjoy dining, relaxing, and entertaining in this bright open space.
The family room has deck access, a convenient powder room, and a deluxe bar area.
The owner’s suite on the second floor has an oversized bedroom with a fireplace, multiple closets, and plenty of room for a seating area. An ensuite main bath features double vanities, a soaking tub, and separate shower.
Three additional bedroom suites occupy the remainder of the upper level. Each suite has a generous closet and ensuite bath access, with two bedrooms sharing a Jack & Jill bath. Keep an eye out for the ladder to a hidden play room!
Downstairs you will find a large family room/ bonus room with an exterior entry and a full bath. There is a bedroom that makes a great private home office, and a large workshop space as well.
Driving down many streets in the Paces neighborhood, it would be easy to imagine yourself in the hills of North Georgia. The neighborhood has rolling topography, dense forest, and secluded properties. Then, you crest a hill and see the entire Atlanta skyline peeking above the tree line, a reminder that you are a few minutes from just about anywhere in Buckhead, Midtown, or Downtown! This embodies what Buckhead is really about, a wonderful quality of life combined with the conveniences of a modern city at your doorstep … or front gate.
