Beautiful Features in a Modern Mansion

If someone showed this picture to me and asked me where I thought this home was in Georgia, I would guess the North Georgia mountains. I would have been very wrong. This lovely home is right on a small lake is in the Buckhead/Sandy Springs area! The property is a little more than 3 acres and is lakefront. I love the placement of this house: the lovely drive,  the way the house is built to hug the rolling landscape, and the well manicured lawn with quiet privacy.
The street view is also a joy to behold. The beautiful fencing, the roll of the land, the house placement, and the circular drive make for an inviting first impression. Actually, the grounds are so impressive that they won an award in 2009.
The large infinity pool and pool house seem to sit up from the house to give a wonderful view from the home. Now let’s wander inside. Just to let you know, I found these pictures on Zillow before it was purchased, which is why there are no furnishings in these pictures. It does make it easy to see the wonderful bones of this lovely home.
The living room floor is amazing with the herringbone pattern and the gorgeous inlay surrounding the room. The windows seem to give this space such wonderful light, and the mantel is a feature to set off any decor!

The kitchen is another room that seems filled with sunlight and would be sheer delight for entertaining! I will admit that I am a sucker for a fireplace in the kitchen – or pretty much anywhere. This kitchen seems to give a salute to days gone by with the fireplace here, but also have all of the modern features that make a cooking and entertaining a pleasure!

There is a myriad of storage in this house, from the kitchen to the closets. I love the walk in pantry.

And the closets are amazing! There are his and her closets in the master…
Her closet
His closet
You can see from the photos the natural light in both closets for being able to see colors in their best light. As a woman, I love the glass shelves in the ladies closet and the vanity. The truth of the matter is that it isn’t so much a closet as a dressing room!
I also love the bathrooms in this house. There are amazing fixtures and the design of each seems to be that joyous mixture of form and function.
There are so many things to love in this new home. The location is amazing, the three acre grounds are magnificent, and the home is sunlight-filled delight.
