Whether looking for a renovation or restoration with a potential over $100K+ value increase, look no further. This AMAZING example of an elegant Georgian manor with LOADS of space is placed on over an acre private, wooded lot & 5 minutes from downtown Gainesville. “Surely you jest,” you say? “Yes, I say,” for it is paradise nestled within city conveniences. The view from either of the two full decks is as peaceful as a newborn’s slumber; quiet, holy & serene. The interior is adorned with high end materials & architectural details that requires only your appreciation for timeless architecture. Should “good bones” be what you seek for a custom renovation, this custom-built, over engineered for its time, house was constructed to withstand time itself & the perfect blank canvas for your dream home. Outside, the neighborhood ambiance is that of a private, well-kept community of custom-built homes in an oversized cul-de-sac. Did I mention, NO HOA?? The front façade of the house has two koi ponds w/fountains that flank the front stoop, mature landscaping, & large, two car garage. Words cannot describe the back of the lot straight out of the Blue Ridge Mtns. The HUGE lot is nestled in Cry Creek neighborhood near Riverside Military Academy in Gainesville, GA & backs up to property owned by The Atlanta Botanical Gardens. This home overlooks a year-round stream, seasonal 20ft waterfall, & an abundance of resources. Currently, the property is set up for self-sufficiency with two native fish ponds, terraced garden, outbuilding used for rabbits & chickens, as well as, a pin for a goat. In Hall Co, GA, R-3 residentially zoned property owners are permitted one four-legged farm animal per 1/3 acre. For those with “preparedness” & security in mind, this property as a whole has had much thought put into “never being without.” The still images tell the tale quite well. Inside, the Georgian architecture embraces you from the moment you set foot through the front door. Real hardwood floors, moldings & trim immediately catch the eye. The whimsical, hand painted mural in the oversized, 12+ seat, dining room (off of foyer) offers direct access to the GINORMOUS, 8+ seat, eat-in kitchen. A large, comfortable living room/library also connects to the foyer. The hardwood detail work in the den beckons for a winter fire in your favorite chair looking out over the wooded valley. Let’s not forget about the extra-large mud/laundry room, screened in porch & exterior upper deck... those views though. Upstairs features an Owner’s Suite the size of which are of folklore & fairytales with room for an additional, HUGE walk-in closet. The secondary bedrooms are overly spacious as well require only one glace to see that you’ll need more furniture to fill them. Below all of this majesty sits the completely finished, daylight basement with two large flex rooms, an open living space & bar area that can easily be converted to a full kitchen. Living area has an adjoining full bathroom & views of the outdoors w/ access to the lower full outdoor deck. A multi-generational family can function with easy & privacy inside the house with very little imagination & effort.
