Featured Home: Exquisite Estate in Haynes Manor (Betsy Akers)February 15, 2010
This exquisite home is located on prestigious Peachtree Battle in one of Atlanta’s best neighborhoods, Haynes Manor. The home’s subtlety catches your attention as you come up the brick paver walk. Originally built in 1935, the craftsmanship and grandness of the home cannot be overlooked once inside.
On the main level the mahogany library with gold detail will take your breath away. It is truly awe-inspiring. There is a wet bar with the same detail, giving a majestic feel to the space. The kitchen, breakfast area and keeping room all flow into one another and are beautifully blended with wood cabinetry and paneling. A wall of windows adds just enough light to brighten the space and showcase the deep wood tones. A marble fireplace in the keeping room is opposite the well appointed kitchen.
You can serve your next culinary masterpiece in the formal dining room that seats sixteen easily. It is a grand space with a crystal chandelier and sconces. It is a great space for entertaining family and friends or important business associates.
The home has many added features on the inside. There are two masters on the second level both with private baths and spacious closets. A wine cellar and exercise room are on the finished basement level. The home also has an elevator that serves all three levels for added convenience.
While on the main level you come out of the sunroom to two sweeping staircases that will bring you down to an in-ground pool with brick surround. Plenty of space for an outdoor gathering. Use the pool for splashing around and relaxing or as a beautiful focal point at your next cocktail party. There are four fountains around the pool and a gazebo that houses the hot tub at one end. A private pool house features a kitchen and his and her baths, while the sweeping lawn completes the property.
Exquisite truly is the first word that comes to mind when you visit this home. It is a true masterpiece.
