This stunning 7000 sq ft Georgian home sits directly on the Savannah River. The wooded, landscaped 1.5 acre property is located on a cul-de-sac in a quiet neighborhood only 9.9 miles (21 minutes) from Augusta National. A spacious wooden deck alongside the pool and spa begs for barbecuing or bird-watching. A few dozen steps lead down to a large firepit and Adirondack chairs alongside the riverbank, where river cooters, herons, cormorants, and otters can be seen.
The front entry of the home boasts a Grand Foyer with marble floors and a spectacular crystal chandelier lighting the main staircase. The Main Floor has raised ceilings, wood floors, and generous crown moldings throughout. It consists of: A spacious two-sofa Living Room with Georgian-style gas fireplace, bookshelves, a spectacular full-wall river view, and French doors opening to an elevated deck with teak rocking chairs and dining set.
A huge newly remodeled Thermador Chef's Kitchen includes a conventional and steam oven, 5-burner natural gas cooktop, quartz countertops, oversize garden window with Savannah River views, coffee bar, and built-in breakfast nook seating 8.

Adjoining the Kitchen is the comfortable Keeping Room, with gas fireplace, two Laz-E-Boy heated/massaging/reclining chairs, loveseat couch, and a 60 inch UHD TV visible from the Kitchen and breakfast nook. Off the Keeping Room is a furnished, screened outdoor area called the Hexagon Room, which offers best views of numerous bird feeders and the Cardinals, Hummingbirds, Wrens, and Finches they attract.
The Master Bedroom suite has panoramic river views, direct access to the upper deck, an adjoining exercise area, 55 inch UHD TV, walk-in closet, and a bathroom suite with two large vanities/sinks and separate shower, toilet, and jacuzzi tub areas.
