It’s amazing to think that in this day and age, in our thriving city of Atlanta, there could be a private home on 6+/- wooded acres. As a matter of fact, there is a lovely estate, complete with elegance, history and charm, nestled in one of the quietest parts of Buckhead at 3777 Paces Ferry Road NW. Located close to the Chattahoochee River, Vinings, interstates, shopping and restaurants. This area has maintained most of its forest cover, making it a great scenic view.
Built in 1940, this home was most likely intended to be a countryside retreat. The architecture reflects a comfortable, approachable style with its charming cottage-like details, incredible gardens and separate pool house.
Both the main house and the pool house are crisp and fresh. The main is a treat for those who plan to entertain! Large and oversized rooms are found throughout the home, which features a neutral, warm palette, extensive custom millwork and hardwood floors throughout. Rooms are open and flow from one to another through arched doorways with keystone caps, vaulted ceilings and plenty of large windows.
Of special note is the grand two-story great room with double-hung windows with transoms gracing the tops and a warm fireplace with a marble surround. It’s ideal for large holiday gatherings and quaint parties, especially as it’s large enough to fit a baby grand piano and a fireside setting.
The expansive formal dining room has plenty of room for 12 guests, a built-in china cabinet, crown and chair moldings, recessed lighting, another fireplace, arched doorways and access to the outdoors on two sides of the room.
Serve fabulous meals in the dining room and enjoy the provisions found in the kitchen. Recently updated, this “wow” space is perfect for any level chef. Natural light pours in through a wall of casement windows and adjoining skylights, illuminating the workspace. There is an oversized island with a prep sink and one of two dishwashers. Other appliances include a panel-front Sub-Zero refrigerator and separate freezer, gas range, double oven and a wine refrigerator. To top off the space, there is a lovely, more casual breakfast room off the kitchen with a bay window, crown molding and an abundance of space.
The master suite is on the main level and is commensurate with the rest of the home in terms of space and elegance. An arched doorway leads to the full-sized living area with a fireplace, room for an entire suite of furniture and volumes of books. It’s the perfect place to relax and unwind with a book. The adjoining bedroom is large and filled with light.
The terrace level features an incredible wine cellar and tasting area, as well as access outside. And, the outside of this home is incredible. It is highly manicured yet has a lush, natural feel throughout the many acres. Broad lawns are complemented by formal gardens, informal patios, winding stone pathways, mature plantings and a wide variety of trees.
The jewel in the crown of this lush Buckhead estate at 3777 Paces Ferry Road is the top of the line pool house. It was once featured in Veranda magazine and has hosted many guests, parties and afternoons of fun by the sparkling pool and large pool deck. It has a living room with soaring ceilings, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom, perfect for in-laws, au pairs or even a lucky teenager.
