From an entire level dedicated to professional gaming to an authentic athletic-style training facility, this impressive trio of properties offers tremendous trappings for relaxing and entertaining alike.
This six-bedroom estate nestled within a gated swim/tennis community in Sandy Springs’ sought-after Sentinel Ferry neighborhood is not only set on a 1.1-acre parcel of private, wooded land fronting the Chattahoochee River, but it even comes with the option to purchase the adjacent 1-acre lot. Adding to the allure of this 10,000-square-foot stunner is a showstopping terrace level outfitted with a theater; recreation room with bar, card and pool tables; a decked-out exercise room; and special space for practicing golf, says Robin Blass of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, who is listing the property for $1.49 million. Along with a sumptuous master retreat hosting a fireside sitting room and chandelier-topped spalike bath, as well as a chef’s kitchen equipped with a massive center island and a keeping room with fireplace and sunlit breakfast nook, it’s paradise for the home entertainer. 344 Caruso Court, 770.804.6226, firstname.lastname@example.org, robinblass.com
The Real Deal
What does the $3.38 million price tag get the new owner of this Sandy Springs showpiece? Almost 12,000 square feet of over-the-top features highlighted by a training facility specially made for a world-class athlete, along with a 1.6-acre lot, a luxe covered porch with fireplace and a grotto-style infinity pool with waterfall. Says listing agent Glennda Baker-LeBlanc of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Georgia Properties, “Looking through to the resort-style pool area, you are immediately struck by the flow from indoor to outdoor living, as though you’ve transcended to an island.” As for the interiors, expect five bedrooms (including a posh main-level master retreat boasting massive closets, a separate area just for shoes and salon/makeup room); a gourmet kitchen and adjoining family room; and terrace level designed for professional gaming, complete with areas for billiards, cards and watching movies. 385 River Valley Road, 678.755.3711, email@example.com, glennda.net
This European-style manse on a large corner lot in North Buckhead offers a five-star existence. Think a towering foyer displaying a Swarovski chandelier dangling from a silver-leaf dome and dramatic staircase (with crystal spheres welded into the custom iron baluster inspired by the owner’s world travels), plus an unrivaled 1,000-square-foot master closet with room for 300-plus pairs of shoes and more. “This home is for a buyer looking for something unique,” says Lindsay Levin of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Georgia Properties, who is listing the six-bedroom residence for $3.9 million. “The interior was designed to feel like a luxury hotel.” Expect 13,500 square feet of elegant yet inviting space showcasing an office inspired by the W Hotels aesthetic, a banquet-size dining room, a kitchen with Champagne fridge, a sound-proof theater and sleek finished basement. Also on the lineup: a resort-style cabana, pool and sport court. 1185 Mount Paran Road NW, 404.667.3232, firstname.lastname@example.org, atlantarealestateinsider.com
