Well off the beaten path of I-85, nestled in the quiet countryside of Banks County, you can now find this completely custom built Smart Home, that offers modern styling and design combined with the rich history of the area, the feel of an old estate, and the tranquility of being surrounded by nature. As you leave the asphalt, you’re greeted by a carefully restored, 200+ year old Shepherd’s cabin, brought back to its former glory using period correct materials and rock for the fireplace from the property it sits on. The driveway ambles through what was overgrown with brush but is now lined with Japanese Maples, which escort you gracefully as you watch the 16 acres of property open up before you, calling to you to stay. To the right of the home sits a custom built, two stall horse barn with concrete flooring, wrought iron stall gates, tack/equipment room, and wash area. The front of the barn has been covered with rocks gathered on the property. Out back there is an elaborate, custom built chicken coop. You don’t have to get down and dirty to gather eggs, access is from the outside! The house and horse barn overlook the 2+acre fenced pasture, along with a recently added corral. There’s also a pole barn tucked away inside the tree line for all your equipment. When you arrive home you can park effortlessly in the two-car garage, featuring a large unfinished space overhead, perfect for an additional apartment or teen suite. There’s also ample parking for guests, and you’ll most certainly want to entertain here! As you enter the home through the garage, you’ll find a beautiful room for a respite from the day. Slip off and store your shoes away on the custom shelving, take a deep breath and make your way into the awaiting bliss of home. Luxury Vinyl Plank allows you to glide through the expansive living space and dining area, featuring a breathtaking fireplace with gas logs and massive mantle, separate dining and serving counter, and views to the wide, rocking chair front porch, where you’ll be able to enjoy the glorious sunrises any day you like. Notice the barn door style blinds throughout the main level! Prepare a meal or snack in the innovative kitchen, featuring a “more drawers than doors” concept, farmhouse sink, beautiful shelving for storage and display with extra outlets for appliances, kitchen island with a pop-up mixer shelf, and pot filler over the range. Organization and efficiency are the hallmarks of this gourmet kitchen! You’ll love the Master Suites expanse and privacy, as well as the natural light afforded via the four large windows, allowing you to wake up with the sunrise. The master bath features a private stacked laundry, custom cabinetry, double vanity with a center tower cabinet and waterfall faucets, and the walk in shower. Upstairs you’ll find a large living space under a vaulted ceiling and continuation of the LVP flooring throughout. The bedroom features a view overlooking the corral and pasture, and a full bathroom with a walk-in shower. The living area also features two built in bunks designed for accommodating the kids, grandkids, or various other guests! The finished basement is a home within the home, with multiple possibilities for use. The main living space features a convenient kitchen, siting area with an accent wall, and is spacious enough to easily house the Grand Piano! There’s a separate media room which is currently set up as a recording studio, a beautiful library/office space with bookshelf and ample room for a large table or desk, and a finished safe room.
