If you’ve ever dreamed of living in a French chateau, here is your chance, no passport required!
Located in Vinings in the prestigious Paces Lake community, this home is refined and elegant with all of the touches and finishes one would expect in a true custom home. With 4-inch thick European stucco, copper gutters and awnings, and a Vermont slate roof, the home’s exterior draws you in for a closer look. A cobblestone drive leads to the grand double door entrance and in to the foyer with a sweeping curved staircase and limestone floor.
The rest of the main floor is a perfect balance of rustic and refined with antique rough-planed pinewood floors or pale textured flagstones, rough hewn antique beamed and plastered ceilings in the keeping room and kitchen and wide plank pine ceilings in the more intimate living areas. Four brick-built fireplaces, including an outdoor fireplace on the bluestone terrace on the rear of the house, each with unique custom mantels, warm the airy living spaces.
All of the home’s main living areas open off the bluestone terrace through curving French doors; the keeping room with a limestone fireplace and arching beamed ceilings flows into the breakfast room and kitchen with beautiful Provenćal finishes and top quality Viking appliances.
A formal dining room and two more intimate living rooms, all with the tall curved French doors are full of detail and beautiful custom finishes.
The master suite is also on the main floor, again with doors opening to the terrace. Generous windows and French doors bring the outdoors inside.
Step into the master bath; you’ll find dual sinks, a deep soaker tub with a mosaic tile surround and separate spa shower, finished in a modern, serene palette, and a large custom walk-in closet.
Upstairs are three family bedrooms, each with an ensuite bathroom and substantial closet space. Every bedroom is unique, one with a Juliet balcony, another with an alcove for study or yoga; but all are in keeping with the southern French style of the home, with generous windows, crown molding, and custom lighting.
Outside, the cobblestone drive leads through a port cochere with doors leading to the kitchen, and continues beyond to the rear of the house where there is a detached carriage house with a finished office on the second floor.
The terrace overlooks the flat, professionally landscaped lot with the perfect site for a pool. There is a partially finished daylight basement with exterior access, ready to be completed as a wine cellar, home gym or theatre.
Paces Lake is one of Atlanta’s premier luxury communities right in the heart of Vinings. just steps from the shopping and dining of Vinings and a short drive to Atlanta’s most distinguished private schools, Paces Lake feels like a world apart.
