Welcome home to your elegant oasis nestled in one of Athens most established and serene neighborhoods. Sedgefield consists of beautifully maintained residences, generous lots, and peaceful streets. Its tranquility belies its convenience: 5 miles to UGA/downtown, 2 miles to the new Publix shopping center, 4 miles to Athens Country Club, 73 miles to the Atlanta airport, and 110 miles to the Greenville/Spartanburg airport. Step into the grand foyer, which is flooded with natural light and adorned with travertine marble floor, curved staircase, and 12 custom chandelier. A beautiful archway leads your eye through the family room to the back of the house with a peek of the knock-your-socks-off landscaping. Another archway takes you into the living room, with its hardwood floors, extensive millwork, large windows, and pocket doors that lead to the dining room. The dining room is large enough for a banquet sized table and showcases extensive molding, hardwood floors, built in display shelves, and bay window. Indulge your inner chef with the dream kitchen and its marble floor, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances, including gas cooktop, wall oven, warming drawer, and separate ice maker. Enjoy casual dining in this light-filled space, either at the curved island, or in the adjoining keeping room. Exit the kitchen onto your generous patio, covered with a remote controlled louvered ceiling. Friends and family will never want to leave this spot, with its view of a rock waterfall, 2 ponds, extensive landscaping, and unspoiled woods beyond the custom iron fencing. Back inside, step through glass pocket doors into the cozy family room, flanked with built in bookcases, wet bar and fireplace with gas rocks. An entire wall of windows brings the outdoors in, adding to the ambiance of this heart-of-the-home space. Escape to the luxurious primary suite, a sanctuary of relaxation boasting a spacious walk-in closet and a spa-like ensuite bathroom complete with a lavish soaking tub, separate shower, and dual vanities. Glass doors lead out to the patio, beckoning for morning coffee or evening refreshments while listening to the soothing sounds of your waterfall.
