Featured home: Magnificent in detail and locationSeptember 11, 2009
The words “elegant English manor” come to mind as you pull in the drive of the Norman Askins/Jacquelynne Lanham collaboration in Historic Brookhaven located at 4343 Town Commons Circle, originally designed in 1991 by Greg Mix.
Groomed hedges, ivy running up and across the front of the brick immediately arouse curiosity of what you may find once you step inside. You will not be disappointed.
A Herringbone laid brick floor runs down the entry hall alongside an open staircase with twisted spindles. An arched doorway leads to the back hall showcasing an arched ceiling above. The main level of the home features a living room, dining room, keeping room, kitchen, breakfast area, sun room and bedroom.
The kitchen is spacious and has a bar with an eating area, while a breakfast area is connected by a generous arched opening. The kitchen has ample storage alongside stainless steel appliances and gas stove.
Returning to the hallway you will ascend the staircase to explore the home’s four bedrooms. When you arrive at the top of the staircase there is a magnificent window flooding the oversized landing with light. This would be incredible area to sit and enjoy a book or a moment of repose basking in the sunlight.
The home has four fireplaces, including one in the Master Bedroom. The Master Suite is spacious and easily has room for a sitting area. The adjoining bath has his and her sinks and separate shower and tub areas. The home has five bedrooms and six full baths. The ceilings are high throughout. In the terrace level of this home, a bedroom and bath have been stubbed and is ready for completion.
The home’s grounds continue to create the feel of being swept away to another place. A sunroom and outside porch overlook a private garden and level lush yard on a quiet cul de sac. There is a covered stone patio for dining al fresco.
Four bedrooms, six and a half baths.
Offered at $1,950,000.
