With the charm and warmth of a cottage in this three-level brick retreat, you are immediately welcomed to relax with guests as you ascend the entry stairs. Flanked by two gables with two-story bay windows each, an idyllic canopy created by the shed roof with rough-honed timber posts and brackets envelopes you as you enter through double French doors. Now in the two-story foyer with a classically turned staircase and decorative wood spindles, the space evokes an understated elegance fit for escaping the rush and bustle of hectic days. On the left is the dining room that easily accommodates seating for eight or more, and to your right is a parlor with a fireplace that’s a great first stop for refreshments, conversation or simple relaxation.
Directly ahead to the rear of the main floor is the heart of the home — the family room and kitchen. The kitchen boasts a large island with a cooktop for prep and casual eating, a walk-in pantry and a secondary preparation counter space for serving the breakfast room at the kitchen wing and the centrally located family room. The opposite wing on the rear houses the brick-paved reading room with a shiplap siding accent wall for after-dinner cocktails or a late-night hideaway. Capping off the main floor amenities are the mudroom area off the five-car garage entrance and the pool bathroom immediately off the backyard terrace as you enter the home.
The rear stair allows for easy passage to the main floor and provides quick access to the bedrooms on the second floor. A highlight, the owner’s suite flaunts a sumptuous-scaled room with a fireplace, a bay window sitting area, two separate owner’s bathrooms and walk-in closets. Additionally, there are four bedrooms with full bathrooms, along with a conveniently located, full-sized laundry room.
Rounding out the interior space, the basement level offers a recreation room, game room and sitting area with stained pine built-ins and beadboard chair rails throughout. With a full-length, mirrored wall, the exercise room is the ideal workout area for low-intensity to vigorous movements.
For outdoor activities, there is a large gunite swimming pool directly accessible from the main level, along with a putting green for golf enthusiasts. The outdoor kitchen/bar area is inconspicuously nestled underneath an entertainment trellis for charm and excitement. This three-level brick gem is only a short distance from the Dunwoody Country Club! Click HERE for a tour!
