More about our house

Many people have asked for more information about our house, so I am going to post specifics.
For a quick link to the pictures, they are here:
60 minutes to downtown Atlanta, 30 minutes to Macon, 5 miles from Forsyth, 3 miles off of I-75. Serenity in the country, but convenient for a commute.
The fenced areas are approximately 3 acres. Cross fenced to divide the larger pasture from a medium sized paddock, and a small connecting paddock. Loafing shed opens into the larger pasture and the connecting paddock. We have ponies and goats on the pastures. We have planted Bermuda several times, but every time the drought has taken most of it before it gets a good root system. This year I planted Bermuda with millet, and it is doing some better. If stalls were put up in the barn, and horses could be taken on and off the pasture, it could probably support two, maybe three with supplemental hay.
The rest of the property is wooded, and there is a small creek in the wooded area. There are also dog runs, and a chicken coop down by the barn.
The house is 2764 sq ft finished with an additional 1024 sq ft unfinished in the basement.) 4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath, cathedral ceilings, open floor plan, with the great room, kitchen, & dining room all open. 3 bedrooms are upstairs, the master is on the main floor.
The master bedroom has 2 closests. One is a huge walk-in closet with a window (that I use as a nursery & closet.) There is a loft/library/office upstairs. Mudroom connects the oversized (676sq f) two car garage. Basement is partially finished -two rooms. My husband uses one room as an office/reloading (ammo) room, and the other room was built as a play room, but it is used as a bedroom currently. There is a small storage room, and the rest is open and unfinished. We use it as an exercise room and a school room for the older kids.

Built it in 1999. We just had gutters added, and are having some additional landscaping done as well as resealing the porch and deck. We replaced the upstairs air conditioning unit this year, new dishwasher, new stove. We are also redoing the upstairs bathroom, and having the floors refinished. It is completely wood throughout - floors, and walls, even ceilings (excluding the basement.) We share a private drive with my mom, and one other family, but we are at the end of the road so it is very secluded.

Email me at if you want more information. We will be listing it with Martie Brown @ ReMax the beginning of Sept.

WOW! Your house is beautiful. What I wouldn't give to transpose your kitchen into mine. We are looking to add onto our house. Although selling it would be nice and just get a home already completed....there is only one other in town big enough that we like but they are asking an outrageous amount. So....for the difference...we could do some awesome things to ours :) Good luck and God's Blessings on getting your home sold quickly and for the right price......Vickie

Thanks Vickie. I'd really love to be able to take it with us. God has a better plan though. I am excited to see what He has in store for us!
