Welcome to Fortson Drive which features a gated entrance, walkability to Five Points and the most luxurious outdoor entertaining spaces! Just minutes from Downtown Athens and The University of Georgia, this estate has meticulously maintained grounds and entertaining spaces, as well as an impeccable floor plan. Upon entering the property, you are welcomed into a foyer, with a formal living room, dining room and home office within view. These living spaces are accented by an array of wood beams, wainscoting, gleaming hardwood floors and wood accents on the ceiling. An abundance of natural light flows through the main level living, and makes for a beautiful back drop for your day to day living. The gourmet kitchen is highlighted by double wall ovens, a large island, custom cabinetry, gas stove with pot filler, and a built-in Bosch espresso machine. Catering and preparing large meals is a cinch with the prep kitchen which boasts an additional refrigerator, sink and dishwasher! Hard surface countertops span the kitchen, as well as the wet bar, which is home to an ice maker, wine cooler and custom wine rack. Entertaining is truly a breeze in this functional floor plan, which has every bell and whistle! A graciously sized, vaulted owner's suite with fireplace is located on the main level and features a stunning master bath with a wet room, steam shower with multiple shower heads and a jetted tub. The double sized, walk in cedar closet has custom shelving and hanging racks. The upper level is home to a cozy bonus room, and two spacious secondary guest bedrooms, each with an en suite bath. Downstairs, the terrace level is like another house on its own; imagine the gatherings you can have on those game day weekends! It has a large den with a gas fireplace, an office /study, a full kitchen with eating area, and three spacious bedrooms, all with en suite bathrooms. The lower terrace level has a workout room and a full bathroom with a steam shower. This space opens up to the outdoor entertaining areas, starting with the tiered stone patio with an outdoor kitchen and double sided fireplace. Guests can relax here while overlooking the heated, salt water pool and spa and putting green. The grounds are meticulously manicured and professionally landscaped.
