This property is said to offer lakefront living in Buckhead style 30 minutes from downtown Atlanta—in the other direction.

Situated on the shore of Lake Spivey in Jonesboro, this 2018 modern showcase incorporates many of today’s top design details. Throughout the 5,335-square-foot home, the 23-foot vaulted ceilings, multitude of high windows, and walls of glass flood the interior with natural light.

Doing so enhances the home’s many textures, from the living room’s brick accent wall to the ceiling’s pine slats to the kitchen’s waterfall-edge marble countertops and beyond.

To further open up the space, the back walls of the house retreat, expanding the living room into the great outdoors. There it incorporates an outdoor living room, the infinity-edge Pebble-tec swimming pool, and plenty of deck space for entertaining.

That deck is outfitted with its own variety of bells and whistles, including motorized screens, heaters, a TV, wet bar, fireplace, and bathroom with sauna. Take the steps down from the deck, and you’ll find a hot tub as well.

The glass walls of the living room and dining area open up to expand the space outside.

While all five bedrooms, accompanied by seven bathrooms, enjoy lake views, only the master suite on the main floor has private access to the deck behind the house as well as a double-sided fireplace shared with the master bathroom.

The home’s construction also is noteworthy, incorporating steel I-beams, a metal structure support, and concrete throughout to ensure durability, as marketers note.

The property also comes with a two-slip covered dock for the homeowner’s favorite watercraft.

The home has garnered a lot of attention, from Architectural Digest to BET TV to the more local publication Come Home to Clayton.

Listed by Robert Payne: Luxury Homes of Lake Spivey - Keller Williams Realty Atlanta Partners for $1.59 million, the property strives to be on par with some of Atlanta’s finest in places like Buckhead and Ansley Park—provided that potential buyers with intown orbits are ready to commute.
