Priced significantly below recent appraisal, this amazing home represents a fabulous value for this desirable Historic Brookhaven location.  By combining the adjacent lot with the existing property, 1.43 +/- acres of level land has been created resulting in an incredible setting for one of the largest properties in the Heart of Historic Brookhaven.  Unique and elegant, the exterior grounds include a fabulous rose garden with over 75 specimen roses, two inviting fire pits - one on each side of the house - and a pavilion with private views of the beautiful landscaping. The waterfall located next to the pavilion sets the stage for approaching one of the most elegant park-like settings imaginable. Also included are a large grotto with gas lanterns and its own private bath, a greenhouse, woodland walkways, and a refreshing, heated swimming pool with playful arched water jets.  Several architectural follies are sprinkled throughout the grounds for reflection and enjoyment including a statue of Hebe - the Greek Goddess of Youth, an obelisk, and a rotunda...all for decorative whimsy and good fortune.  Especially noteworthy is a flame-carved bronze and steel work by sculptor John Sanders called TOP IT OFF.  Enjoy indoor and outdoor living areas, for formal and informal use.  No matter the size, large or small gatherings are easily accommodated with the home's flexible use of space. Built in the 1920's, this traditional home has been completely renovated, expanded, and updated for today's lifestyle.  Located across from the Capital City Club golf course, enjoy easy access to Peachtree-Dekalb Airport, Phipps Plaza, Lenox Square, and GA-400.  As you enter the home, a discreet sense of elegance and intimacy emerges.  And yet the home is deceptively large and features approximately 10,000 square feet of open, light-filled, spacious rooms with high ceilings. This combination is rare and refreshing. The recent extension of a striking reading room impresses with radiant heated tile floors and a soaring,  two-story library next to the new elevator...all designed by Norman Askins complete with mahogany spiral staircase.  With four indoor fireplaces in the living room, dining room, family room, and master bedroom, each room has a grand focal point. The kitchen, complete with a walk-in pantry with floor-to-ceiling shelving and a wonderful butler's pantry, opens to an impressive family room with entertainment center which includes a  wet bar, ice machine and refrigerator. Upstairs, four en suite bedrooms include the master suite, plus a second-level laundry room and a cedar closet for convenience and additional storage. The lower level offers a guest bedroom with a full bathroom, a striking bar, a beautiful wine cellar, an entertainment area, a sun-lit recreation room, a wood shop, and an unfinished storage area.  New floor-to-ceiling steel windows and doors from a recent expansion allow light to flood this amazing multipurpose room. Additionally, this expansive wall of windows frames the beautiful view of the pool, rose garden, and lush, grassy play area.  A three-car garage and immense motor court offer great off-street parking for everyday living and entertaining.
