1030 Farmington Lane was custom built by its current owners in 1993 in the DeKalb county portion of Historic Brookhaven.
Channeling a South Carolina low country style, the homeowners wanted to create a welcoming atmosphere and one where they could easily watch their two kids, both indoors and out, throughout the stages of their young lives. The large rocking chair front porch enabled the parents to relax while the kids played in the charming front yard or in the quiet street from which they could walk to Capital City Country Club. The house was functionally designed with three sets of stairs, including one off the large kitchen to a playroom where the young kids could play until they were old enough to go to the finished lower level instead (complete with a kitchenette, a family room, and large playspace.) Another set off the mudroom and three-car garage lands in a large office space (one of three in the house) which has the potential of being a sixth bedroom or a perfect au-pair suite. While providing nearly 9,000 square feet of finished living space on close to an acre of land, this house exudes warmth due to its thoughtful open floor plan with easy flow for entertaining and views of the flat walkout backyard from almost every room. This five bedroom/six full bath/two half bath home boasts four fireplaces (three wood burning), high-end details throughout, and an expansive master suite featuring two full bathrooms and separate closets. It is currently on the market for sale at $2,075,000. Call Elsie or Laura Thompson with Harry Norman Realtors at 678.613.1492 for more information.
