Weekly Top Ten Real Estate Hot List Tue: 06-05-2012
It’s an ABSOLUTE auction with NO MINIMUM and NO RESERVE! And it’s Kenny Rogers’ mind boggling 150-acre pristine estate designed to inspire. He designed it himself and created his own romantic environment so the love songs would just keep on coming. It worked. Clutch the seat of your chair tightly before you dare check out the pictures. We knew you couldn’t wait. Now go back and scrutinize the furniture because it comes with the sale, as well as the recreational water toys such as the pontoon boat, Sea Doo and more. It’s also just outside of Athens, Georgia, which gives you access to goods, services and restaurants, but not the big city stress of Atlanta, though it’s less than an hour away for special outings.
The house takes full advantage of its pastoral site, grasping great views from every room. Neutrals are warm and relaxing, finishes are top-of-the-line and walls are topped with deep crown molding. Bathrooms are all elegant and sophisticated and all four bedrooms are ensuite. The master suite is breathtaking and the dressing room is swoon-worthy. There is also a pool, exercise studio and 3-car garage. There are many open and covered patios with one having a koi pond and waterfall.
The grounds design has accented the lay of the land with the lake curving around a treed point, whetting your curiosity to hop in a boat and explore. Well-stocked with fish, the thought of a picnic on the pontoon boat with fishing gear makes us want to head on down. Additionally, there is a horse pasture, a small barn and enough riding trails and acreage to keep horse lovers happy. Children can safely go exploring, build tree houses in the woods, bringing stories of Daniel Boone to life. Kenny Rogers wanted to get back to nature as he remembered it from his childhood, be refreshed and inspired. He created this beautiful estate for that purpose, which worked so well for him and his family. Likely it will do the same for the new owner.
