Have the best of both worlds! Live in the city but feel like you are in the countryside! A one-of-a-kind home in the city of Atlanta! Originally 2 1900 farm hand homes that were moved from Kennesaw and made into one home to make this amazing piece of property. The project took two and a half years to complete! Every part of the two homes that could be, was salvaged. The home sits back from the street with multiple indigenous plantings that bloom from early spring to late fall. Southern hospitality meets you with Hydrangeas, Magnolias, Azaleas, Rhododendrons and Camellias all blooming at different times. Entering the home, you will see original 1900 shiplap and the heart pine flooring that you simply canCOt find today. To the left you will greet your guests in the parlor with an original wood burning fireplace. To the right you will find the large dining room containing built-in bookshelves and gas fireplace. In total there are 6 working fireplaces throughout the home. Moving to the rear of the main home, you enter the brick floored kitchen and art gallery. The kitchen boasts an 8x6 foot Carrera marble island, 48-inch ILVE Italian range with griddle and hidden 48-inch Subzero fridge. Truly this is a ChefCOs kitchen that is built for entertaining! To the other side of home is a bedroom and bath on the main floor with soaring ceiling, original 1900 siding and original doors. Arriving upstairs you will see the gorgeous 12-inch heart pine flooring that leads out to your second story covered porch which is perfect for morning coffees. To the back is the office with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the beautiful brick courtyard. Upstairs is an additional secondary bedroom with working fireplace and full ensuite bath. Across from this is the ownerCOs suite with 2-sided fireplace, heart pine floors, custom California closets and beautiful Soaking tub. Once outside thru the brick courtyard you will see the oversized 2 car garage with tons of attic storage. Keep strolling to see the original 1930COs home that now serves as an Au Pair or guest house. Approximately 800 square feet, this beautiful dwelling can serve as additional income, an in-law suite, or an office suite with its 1 bedroom, newly renovated kitchen, and great over all space. Recently added covered parking allows parking for 5 cars. To the right of the guest house, you will see the 14X28 heated Saltwater pool and Cabana with electrical, fan and tv. For those evening parties, the pool is surrounded by ground can lights that guide the way from the main home to the pool. Just past the pool is the pool house with bath, shower, and kitchenette. A fence separates the main property from the back property with perennials, peach trees, pear trees and blueberry bushes.

New roofs, New HVAC, etc...The location cannot be beat overlooking the 1st green of East Lake Golf Club. Just a short stroll to Poor Hendrix, La Fonda, Perc Coffee, and Oakhurst.
