Majestic is the most appropriate word we can use to describe this truly one-of-a-kind property in Milton's most prestigious and desirable neighborhood, North Valley recently featured on the 2023 Milton Tour of Homes. 14805 East Bluff was custom built by the seller with exceptional and total attention to detail. The home boasts over 11, 000 finished square feet on 3 levels of comfortable living plus nearly 1, 000sf covered front porch and extensive rear decking. The design concept began with the 1996 Southern Living Dream House; a colonial style home with truly authentic Shaker influences. It features heart pine floors, custom cabinetry and unique black smithed hardware, with soaring 12+ foot ceilings. Floor to ceiling windows flood the home with light and highlight its spaciousness. The main floor includes a generous primary suite with custom bath and separate dressing room, warm library, large dining room, fireside living room, and a vaulted sunroom/keeping room with windows flanking both sides. The kitchen has exquisite custom cabinetry, beverage station, island with unique range, walk-in pantry, breakfast bar and sunny breakfast room. Upstairs find four massive bedrooms with en-suite baths plus a huge, bright bonus room over the garage. The terrace level has 2 fireplaces, second kitchen, custom cherry Williamsburg "cage bar", game room, media room, additional bedrooms and 1.5 baths. The seller's commitment to nature shows: the property is designed to bring the outside in with oversized windows and large, flowing entertainment spaces on all levels that allow hosts to engage while guests mingle. Enter this home and experience the spaces unfold to reveal their size and spectacular features. The design goal was a verifiable shaker reproduction, with colonial features and a sincere focus on craftsmanship. Significant areas for collections and artwork throughout the property. Note the heavy Shaker millwork and beading, 12"x1" baseboards with 1/4" bead expertly added on-site. Extra deep windowsills, door and window molding throughout all levels. Custom historically accurate paint colors and intricate stenciling throughout reflect the Colonial detail. Wood floors are heart pine sourced from a South Georgia reclaimer; you will find this special wood throughout the main floor, on the upper level, as well as some doors and fireplace mantels. Note the black smithed reproduction hardware throughout the home including all interior door locks, hinges and detail work. Period colonial reproduction lighting (interior and exterior) was crafted from actual examples with no visible wiring (there are 19 full room size chandeliers, 11 hallway chandeliers and 16 sconces). The library, kitchen, primary bath and main floor powder room have handmade cabinetry from figured birch by acclaimed North Carolina furniture maker, Dana Hathaway. Outdoors explore 3.83 spectacular acres of lovingly planned wooded gardens highlighting non-traditional landscaping that provides food and shelter for local and migratory birds and animals. Stroll the immaculate walking trails and magnificent collection of over 120 Japanese maples, numerous varieties of camellias, native oaks & hickories, native and Japanese conifers, osmanthus, perennials and annuals. The tranquil bouldered stream with seven-foot well-fed waterfall emanates from the second level octagonal deck; natural decking surrounds the home. The woodland area features 7 orchard stone viewing platforms, plus a fire pit (with central drain and electrical wiring). The entire property is enclosed with nearly invisible deer fencing (the only property we know of with this feature) and is entirely irrigated by well water. A river stone water table surrounds the house; the cedar shake roof completes the natural feel of the entire property. All of this in North Valley; the heart of Milton and easily accessible to the areas exceptional shopping, dining, recreation and equestrian lifestyle.
