Walking into this home has the feel of entering the great hall of an old estate, with soaring beamed ceilings, wormy chestnut panelling, and a stone hearth at its heart! But this custom home creates a sense of place without sacrificing any modern amenities or location.
The timber framing is graceful, supporting a soaring vaulted ceiling across the entire main living space. A recent interior remodel was designed by award-winning residential designers Spitzmiller and Norris .
This room is dramatic from every angle, with a tall stone fire place anchoring a living area at one end, sweeping views over the lake on one side, and a handsome chef’s kitchen on the other.
Tucked into the side of the great hall, the kitchen has a large marble island, double chef’s range and dishwashers. The lowered ceiling brings a cosiness to the space while a bank of windows keeps the room full of light.
The dining room has the feel of a solarium, with floor to ceiling windows on three sides overlooking the lake. A pass through bar and fire place on one wall create a cosy enclosure without interfering with the flow to the living room just beyond.
This recent addition features dramatic vaulted beams which continue in the living room with another wall of glass overlooking the serene lake on one side and the lush plantings in the front of the home on the other.
The master suite is an entire wing of the house with a large bedroom, and beyond it, a private sitting room with the same vaulted ceilings and walls of windows as the solarium-like dining room. Warm chestnut panelling in the room reminds me of the grand old lake lodges in the Adirondacks, effortless but luxurious.
A deep, free-standing bath invites long soaks; two vanities and a walk-in shower, as well as custom built-ins in the large dressing room / closet are thoughtful amenities that bring luxury to the everyday.
Downstairs, past the wine cellar and office with fireplace, is a large suite with bedroom, lounge, and full bath; currently a home gym, it could be a private guest suite, with plenty of light and views of the lake.
Sheltered under the upper balcony is a rocking chair porch and a large dining area. Step down to two more patio areas with seating and room for a fire pit or outdoor yoga space.
Sloping down to the lake and dock, the home has a sunny upper deck, several large flagstone patios and a lawn at lakeside. Wander the path on down to the lake through mature trees and landscaping and enjoy your morning coffee or evening cocktail out on the dock. Looks like the good life to me!
This is a one of a kind home in an exceptional location. Private and peaceful, but you can also walk sidewalks to Vinings Village. It’s really a little slice of heaven! Take a look at the listing online for dozens of photos of this home and give me a call any time to arrange a viewing.

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.
I will have the home open for your viewing pleasure on Tuesday, September 18th from 11-230 if you can stop by! Alternatively, Call me to set up a time to view this spectacular property in person. It truly must be seen to be appreciated. I’d love to answer any questions you may have!
