Stunning European-traditional estate property with extensive renovations! This home features a backyard oasis with in-ground Pebbletec pool, pool house with full apartment, Koi pond and outdoor grilling space. Plus, the recreation terrace level features a vintage bowling alley, reclaimed bar, media room and outdoor basketball court! We wondered what it would be like to live in such a wonderful home? Who better to tell us than the Sellers of 2290 Loring Oak Place:
The best part of our outdoor space is the back yard! We love sitting on our back porch, having dinner with our friends, overlooking the Koi Pond and pool area. The upper patio is great to just hang out while grilling and watching the game on the outdoor TV! It's especially nice on spring mornings to sit outside enjoying coffee and watching the birds at the feeder and the Koi in the pond. On special evenings, we entertain under the trellis and it feels so special when lit up by candlelight. There is a complete Sonos System outdoors on the upper patio, under the trellis and by the pool, as well. Afternoons floating in the pool with a cool beverage and a book is our favorite way to wrap up a busy week!
When renovating Loring Oak, we painted the brick white, replaced the front door, and added new shutters, cedar beams/posts on the front porch to upgrade the exterior look of the house. When all the pink azaleas bloom, the house is stunning!! Also, the guest house by the pool is so convenient to have to offer to your invited guests. It is comfortable and separate from the main house providing privacy for all!
The kitchen is one of my favorite rooms in the house! I love the large windows overlooking the back yard and the large island for entertaining and cooking. The cabinets have many upgrades and there's even storage under the barstools to hold extra barware and dishes. The countertops are marble, but are extra dense and will not stain like regular marble. The custom range hood is from Francois & Co. along with the backsplash and make a beautiful focal point for the whole room! Also, there are two dishwashers to accommodate all your dishes at once!
There is also a built-in Sonos System that plays throughout the main floor, basement and pool area that can be operated from your phone. The HVAC units on the main floor and the second floor are new, as well as all the thermostats that can be controlled through your phone. This house never runs out of hot water! There are two large water heaters, one is a new hybrid water heater model.
The Master suite is so comfortable and makes this large home feel intimate and cozy. The coffee bar with it's sink and refrigerator makes your morning routine so very convenient (and private when entertaining guests!) The private sitting room with it's fireplace is our favorite place to enjoy our morning quiet time.
The dining room is big enough to seat 14 comfortably, although we have put 18 around the large dining room table!! It has been the gathering place for some very memorable dinner parties and family memories!!
The upstairs bedrooms are expansive and each has a private bath! Each bedroom is like it's own little suite! There is a second upstairs laundry room if that would be helpful. We used the room as an art closet since we did not need a second laundry room but it's already there if you want to get your kids in on helping with the laundry!
This basement is unlike anything you have ever seen!! It is complete with a three screen movie room, pool table, fuse-ball table, full bar, workout room, ping pong room AND BOWLING ALLEY!! Just outside the bowling alley is a basketball court and access to the pool.
Our neighborhood is small and quiet but it is right around the corner from the Marietta Country Club and Mount Paran Christian School. It's convenience to Barrett Parkway making it easy to get to just about anywhere!
We love to hike Kennesaw Mountain and all the trails throughout the National Park right down the street. Also, downtown Marietta is always a great way to spend a fun evening. We especially like to go to the concerts on the Square in the Summer and the Farmers Market on the weekends! Golfing and Dining at the club is always a great option that fills many of our weekends!
