This traditional suburban home surprises with a cutting-edge “Spinwall”

At first glance, this 1997 traditional colonial home looks exactly like the suburban home you would expect to find in Marietta in East Cobb.

With three bedrooms and three bathrooms in 2,662 square feet, the house also includes a formal living room, a dining room, kitchen (with the ever-trendy subway tile), and bonus room.

But it’s the family room that sets this property apart from its suburban neighbors–and many of its ITP counterparts.

While the many windows on three sides do a great job of bringing the outdoors in, it’s the unique “Spinwall” that takes the inside out.

Designed by the original owner, a local AIA architect, this “Spinwall” actually rotates so the TV can be viewed from the back patio and terraced seating. Given the size of the TV shown, though, it’s a far cry from being an “amphitheater.”

Even so, it is a pretty sweet addition.

The backyard becomes an amphitheater.

If the “Spinwall” is not enough entertainment, future homeowners can join the optional HOA for $600 per year, gaining access to the swimming pool, tennis courts, fishing in the lake, walking trails, a playground, and a basketball court.

Recently listed by Engel & Völkers for $469,000, the home is competitively priced for the neighborhood. But will the “Spinwall” attract more interest or less? Only time will tell.

Colonial tradition at its best.

The family room filled with natural light.
Even suburban kitchens aren’t exempt from subway tile.
The bonus room is filled with potential.
