The focal point of the great room comes in the form of a crystal chandelier that reflects the natural light
Situated atop one of the highest points in the historic Rose Valley, this 13,000-square-foot Georgian mansion is a landscape lover’s dream. Not only does the property come with 3.7 acres, but the home also provides a stunning view of the nearby nature preserve and Ridley Creek. The scenery is best enjoyed from the home’s slated terrace or in the observatory, which soars above the treeline.
The dining room leads out onto the patio
Once you’ve soaked in the sights, explore the other luxurious features of the house like the palatial great room, walnut library, four-car garage, stately fireplaces, climate-controlled wine cellar, gym and sauna. The property also has a separate two-bed, one-bath in-law suite for family and friends who wish to stay overnight. On the third floor of the five-bed, seven-bath residence, you will find a basketball shooting court ideal for a sport-loving family. “The home is ideal for entertaining,” says Realtor Mike McCann. “With a vintage-inspired built-in bar, warm and inviting family rooms and ample sunlight, guests will feel right at home when they walk in.”
The belvedere is perfect for taking in the views above the treetops
On the second floor lie the bedrooms as well as the lavish master suite boasting two walk-in closets, a balcony and an en suite master bath with radiant heat. Georgian-style finishings like custom millwork, grand white windows, brick exterior, hardwood floors and antique lighting adorn the entirety of the home. “No detail was overlooked in the creation of this house,” says McCann. “The warmth of the home is so apparent when you walk through the front doors.” $2.2 million, 67 W.
