Property Description

Newly renovated 861 Sherwood Drive embodies midcentury architecture with modern aesthetic. Flagstone and pecky cypress wood abound throughout the interior. 5 bedrooms are in the main house, and 1 bedroom is in the guest cottage which was completely remodeled in 2021. The charm of this estate lies in its ability to live intimately with 2 to 12 people. On the main floor, the master suite features exposed beams and a stone fireplace. An open concept chef's kitchen includes Viking appliances, a large island, and marble countertops. The great room has a stone masonry fireplace. A den, 2 additional bedrooms, 1.5 baths, and an enclosed screened porch complete the main level. Lake views expand across the entire back of the house. On the terrace level are 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, den, media room, workout room, wine cellar, and 1 additional room used as a bedroom. There are multiple outdoor entertaining options to relax or read your favorite book. They include a gunite pool with flagstone deck, grill area, firepit, hot tub, single slip dock with additional jet ski slip on deep water. A paved road leads all the way from the house to the lake. The sunset lake views on the north end of Lake Lanier are truly gorgeous from this home!!!
