Featured Home: Partially Renovated European Estate (Robin Ives)

March 4, 2010

8970 Huntcliff Trace

It is truly difficult to find words to describe the magnificent home at 8970 Huntcliff Trace. The grand home is located on over an acre of land on the Cherokee Country Club golf course, Overlooking a lake, the home is a great find and not to be missed.

Dining Room

The spirit of European homes is captured with features such as a conservatory, fine millwork and molding, wood panels and brick walls. Step inside and be swept away to another continent. The family room, while easily remembered for the large size of the space, is even more remarkable in design. One wall boasts views of the stone patio and golf course and hosts a large fireplace, while walnut judges paneling, built in cabinetry and grand staircase grace the rest of the room. With a catwalk surrounding the large room, it opens to the second floor and can be seen from all sides by the railed hallways above.


The home has been renovated and updated since original construction in 1972. The rooms are large and often awe-inspiring. The kitchen and breakfast area has beautiful brick walls, walnut moldings, and wood stained custom cabinetry, including a custom bar with icemaker, wine refrigerator, deep freezer, dishwasher and glass cabinetry. The appliances are professional grade and stainless steel. Throughout the kitchen, breakfast and bar area your eye will be drawn upward to a pressed copper tiled ceiling, or to the floor to ceiling windows offering more views to the outdoor beauty. You may be thinking all the decadent features would be too much for one space. It is not. They all blend so well and add to the charm and beauty of the home.


A spectacular conservatory also graces the first floor, allowing sunlight to flood the room through floor to ceiling arched paned windows and a large skylight. The centerpiece is a custom water feature, adding elegance to the atrium. The walls look like ancient stone and small wrought iron balconies look down from second floor rooms.

There are six bedrooms in the golf course home. Two of the bedrooms are on the main level, including the master suite. All the rooms are large as you would expect. Flooring throughout ranges from dark hardwoods, to large tiles and imported slate. The flooring, as with each design element, was noticeably picked and well thought out to work in the overall design of the home.

It would be impossible to mention every spectacular element you will find at the Sandy Springs home, not to mention the numerous patios, decks and balconies that make outdoor living a must. It must been seen to see the grandeur. Take time to walk through to sense all the Old World charm.
