43 LAKE FORREST Lane NE
This is your opportunity to own one of Chastain Park’s favorite homes, a literal stones throw from the best park in the city. This custom-designed and built limestone home with a slate roof will always be fresh, unique, and timeless. After you finish your 3- mile jog around the park, a tennis match, or a quick round of golf, head straight for the backyard where you will find a private resort setting that has just been completed. A new 20' x 40' heated pool is the centerpiece. Synthetic turf play areas and a water-slide will keep the kids happy. An automatic cover and heating system keep the pool at 90 degrees year round! There are plenty of stone terraces for dining, lounging, watching the outdoor TV, or listening to the backyard surround sound audio system! Besides the main-level backyard, there is also a small lawn off of the daylight terrace level as well as a private front yard surrounded by tall hedges. From this vantage point you can enjoy the view of the park and golf course just 100 yards away.
The limestone exterior gives this home an exceptional timeless appeal. As soon as you step inside the front entry you are greeted by a bright, open, and modern interior. A grand entry hall is flanked by a den and dining room. The dining room features a butler’s pantry and access to the intimate walled “secret garden”. The large family room is completely open to the kitchen and breakfast room. A wall of windows across the entire back of the home provides views of your private oasis. The kitchen features a large island, Wolf and Subzero appliances, and a breakfast area. The adjacent butler’s pantry and mud room provide ample storage just inside the oversized 2-car garage. The primary bedroom suite is on the main floor. The large bedroom offers room to spread out. The opulent master bath features marble tile and counter tops, and a luxurious soaking tub. The adjacent dressing room provides closet space and tons of built-in storage. The upper level has three bedroom suites, a sitting area, and a 2nd laundry room. An elevator shaft provides for easy installation of a future elevator (not currently installed) if needed. The recently-finished terrace level offers a game/billiards room, family room with access to the lower backyard and a generous guest suite. The theater comes complete with a high-end projector, screen, and plush reclining chairs for five. You’ll also find a private home office, two storage rooms, and a perfect area for a wine cellar.
