Home of the Month

This month in Stroll The Georgia Club, we are highlighting 1310 Longwood Park, a six-bedroom, seven-and-a-half-bath home located in the Estate Section of Oconee Springs at The Georgia Club.   Nestled on over an acre at the far end of Longwood Park, this private lakeside home measuring over 8,400 square feet is its own slice of paradise. From the brick and stone detail on the exterior of this home to the tongue and groove wood ceilings and stately stack stone fireplace that is the centerpiece of the great room to the expansive porches at the rear of the home that overlook the parklike backyard complete with the serene pool and mature landscaping to the lake beyond, this home is a stunner.

Custom wood doors with water glass inlays lead from the rocking chair front porch into the foyer of the home.  To the left is a flex room that can be used as a formal dining room with direct access to the chef’s kitchen or as a second gathering space for entertaining.   Immediately, guests are drawn to the back of the home, where the expansive great room opens to the spacious breakfast room with soaring ceilings that carry through the tongue and groove detail found in the great room.  The floor-to-ceiling windows with transoms above provide beautiful natural light and breathtaking views of the morning sunrise over the lake.  And just off the breakfast room and kitchen is a fantastic screened-in porch that can be enjoyed all year round.  The outdoor wood-burning fireplace is the perfect spot for enjoying a cool Georgia evening!

The breakfast room also opens to a well-designed kitchen made for someone who loves to cook and entertain.  Custom medium-tone wood cabinets with off-white accents, beautiful stone tops, the tumbled stone backsplash, and elegant light fixtures make this room the perfect place for folks to gather.  The kitchen boasts a six-burner gas cooktop with a custom vent hood, double ovens, two dishwashers, a drawer microwave, and a built-in subzero refrigerator. Every detail was accounted for with the pot filler above the cooktop and the instant hot water at the sink for that morning cup of tea. The double pantries offer plenty of storage for all the things.

This home, 1310 Longwood Park, has three owner’s suites.  The well-thought-out main floor owner’s suite has a generous size bedroom with a vaulted ceiling, customized lighting, and a gorgeous lake view.  The spacious owner’s suite bath boasting custom cabinetry, warm stone tile and countertops, a separate tub, and a large shower with frameless shower doors opens directly into fabulous, custom “his and her" closets. Upstairs, there is a second owner’s suite with a spacious bedroom with a cozy fireplace, a large bathroom, and a huge walk-in closet. The terrace level of the home has the third owner’s suite, complete with a large bedroom and sitting room, a beautiful bathroom, and a bedroom-sized walk-in closet.

The main floor stair leads upstairs to a custom study nook complete with built-in desks and storage.  The hardwood hallway leads to three en suite bedrooms with private baths and walk-in closets in addition to the upstairs owner’s suite. Also, found upstairs is full-height storage accessible by a walk-out door in one of the upstairs bedroom closets.

The terrace level of this home was built to comfortably entertain large crowds or to enjoy family time at home.  The open concept recreational space was recently updated to offer a great lounging space with multiple seating areas, one with a gas fireplace.  A full kitchen and beautiful bar area with built-in display shelving make prepping, warming, and serving out of this space easy.  In addition to the terrace level owner’s suite, there are three additional rooms that can serve as an office, fitness room, or flex space. A full bath serves as the public bath for this space. The terrace level also features a cedar closet and a second laundry room.   The interior terrace space connects to covered porches that span the rear of the home.  These porches are great for outdoor dining, lounging out of the sun but enjoying the pool with cascading waterfall, or grilling that perfect steak.  The lower porches are conveniently connected to the upper terrace by a spiral staircase.   

In addition to the three-car garage that is connected to the main dwelling, 1310 Longwood Park has an oversized detached two-car garage, so everyone has covered parking!  The fully fenced backyard makes this the perfect setting for four-legged family members.  Located in Oconee County, this home is districted for North Oconee High School, Malcom Bridge Middle School, and Dove Creek Elementary.  

This home is a special one and truly should not be missed!
