Alpharetta house description

Bar none, autumn is my favorite time of year in this gorgeous mountain home in Atlanta's most professional suburb . . . Be your best self in this inviting 4000-square foot retreat. Modern conveniences. No carpet or drapes (hardwoods, high end rugs, and Plantation shutters). Farmer's markets and online organic food delivery . . .

THE BASICS
Three large sunny bedrooms, each with a full private, tiled bath and hardwood floors. Each of the three bedrooms has its own queen bed. PLUS the huge master bedroom has a queen bed . . . AND a king bed in the adjacent sunroom. Home sleeps a maximum of 8 comfortably sharing 4 full baths. There are six marble bathroom vanities, 4 large showers, 4 deep tubs including one jetted tub, and 4 toilets.

THE ENVIRONMENT
Take the luxurious sleeping situation and combine it with a back deck overlooking the golf course third green, a big front porch with ample seating, and generous living space. Discover a perfect retreat for professionals who mix comfort and style. This modern home wraps you in luxury. From the red oak hardwood and slate floors accented with deeply piled rugs, to the Egyptian cotton sheets and plush microfiber towels, every touch welcomes you.

Allergy sufferers: there is no carpet in the home and no drapes--it's all hard woods and hard wood plantation shutters. There are a FEW high end wool and silk rugs.

HIGH SPEED HOME

This home is fully equipped with FAST internet, including secure wireless access for each guest. The home also has 3 flatscreen TVs connected to DISH. The downstairs/living room stereo and speaker system is ready for iTunes.

ON-SITE EXECUTIVE GYM

The home comes with its own on-site executive gym with golden hardwood floors and floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall mirrors. Free weights from 3 to 50 pounds, a weight bench, an elliptical machine, and a full weight system machine for complete work-outs. The gym is next to its own bathroom and shower. After a hard sweat, relax in the jetted tub.

FOODIE PARADISE

The gourmet kitchen with granite counters and slate back splashes is equipped with double ovens (new in 2012), a double-door fridge (new in 2012), a chef’s quality gas range, and a selection of new appliances including:
• a Kitchen Aid stand mixer,
• Kitchen Aid blender,
• Henckels kitchen knives,
• Bagel toaster,

• Gourmet coffee maker and burr grinder,
• Cuisinart convection bread machine, and

• a deep cabinet of fine linens and china.

Even better? There's a LOCAL ORGANIC FARM SHARE in Cumming! (Look up The Cumming Harvest.) AND the nearby outlet malls have an Outlet Kitchen Store and William's Sonoma. :)

Like to cook or entertain at home? Pick up a unique bottle of wine from the local vineyards OR go by World Beverage, 1 mile a way, and bring home something fascinating. Open the windows to the fresh mountain breezes from the creek. Step into the herb garden to grab a fresh bunch of rosemary, mint or thyme.

OR--go out! Dine out or order out from half a dozen delicious local restaurants like The Blue Bicycle, Rice Sushi, The Ridge Steak & Seafood, Chin Chin Gourmet Chinese . . .

YOUR PRIVATE MOUNTAIN RETREAT

This home is set to take in panoramic, PRIVATE mountain golf course views. The private bedroom windows and living room windows look out on forest, golf course, and creek--not other homes.

Enjoy a glass of wine or your morning coffee and watch
- the beaver family playing in the creek,
- the red-headed woodpecker building a nest, and
- a slew of squirrels.

Cardinals and blue jays frequent the deck on the back of the house. Sink into the patio furniture and enjoy a quiet sunrise or sunset moment from your private mountain retreat.

EXPLORE! Golf, Fishing, Hiking, Wineries, Horses

You’ll love this location. You’re on the third green of a mountain golf course, and can walk directly on to the course through the sloped lot and woods in the backyard. A rushing mountain creek cuts through the backyard, with a huge boulder big enough for a picnic perched right in the creek like your own private castle. Whether you golf or just love walking the gracious mountain trails around the course, you’re in the heart of fresh air and views of the Appalachians. Plus, you’re an easy drive from some of the best Georgia’s mountain communities have to offer, including:
• Olympic whitewater through Nanhatala Outdoor Center
• North Georgia Premium Outlet Malls (2 miles)
• Atlanta Motorsport Park (home of the 100 mph lunch!)
• Dahlonega and the Gold Rush Museum
• The wineries and farmers markets of Suches
• The famous Appalachian Trail
• Vogler State Park
• Unicoi State Park
• Lake Lanier
• Horseback riding

Perfect for work and play

This home optimizes your executive lifestyle with three bedrooms ready for relaxation and sleep. Two additional bedrooms have been put to other purposes--one is a stylish office and the other is a gym with great fitness equipment, including a weight stack, a wall of mirrors, and an elliptical.

Superior community features
The executive community also features its own fishing lake and dock, an easy stroll from the front door, in addition to:
• Lighted tennis courts
• Lighted basketball court
• Half Olympic pool
• Kiddie fountain and splash pool (open during the summer only)
• Club house/community house ($50/night rentals)
• Golf course club house
• New Forsyth County community library walking distance from home (about .5 miles through community sidewalks)

Plus, it’s only a ten minute drive (or 15 minute bike ride) from the shores and beaches of Lake Lanier at War Hill Park. Or run by the Atlanta Motorsport Park and try the 100 mph lunch!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: I bought this home because of my passion for the outdoors AND my busy executive lifestyle. I've created it as the perfect blend--a place you can enjoy the fresh mountain air, cut a bouquet of summer flowers, or mix the perfect mint julep--all while seamlessly connected to the world. I'm thrilled to be able to share it with you.

              Why the Owner Chose Alpharetta:
              It's about the perfect middle distance between pure wild country and the convenience of the city. I like to hike and camp--and the true wilderness and blue ridge isn't far. But sometimes you want to be in the city. This home sits squarely in the center.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              It's quiet and peaceful here, but you're always connected--with terrific high speed internet, free international calling, a state of the art fitness center, and rooms that are wired for Internet, it's a unique setting from which to conduct the business of your life. Surrounded by some of the best of nature, golf, mountain trails and let's not forget an easy drive to Atlanta, this is truly a place to breathe deeply, live healthily and yet never miss a beat.
