A customized 4,425 square foot farmhouse has hit the market in Roswell.

Jack Thomasson, founder of Coastal Living magazine and the mastermind behind the first 20 HGTV Dream Homes, has listed his own dream house. While it’s now a 4 bedroom 4.5 bath property near historic Canton Street, it began as a 700-square foot farm cottage. It’s also been described as “a one-of-a-kind architectural masterpiece.”

Enter through the front door or through the four-car garage and you’ll see the beginnings of antique wide-plank reclaimed chestnut hardwood floors. This is carried out throughout the one-story home.

“This home cannot be compared to other homes on a typical cost per square footage basis as you would be missing everything that makes it unique and truly exceptional,” the listing said.

The great room features 26-foot vaulted ceilings of stained white oak. It’s flanked by a large brick fireplace on one side and a custom chef’s kitchen on the other. The kitchen features top-of-the-line appliances, double dishwashers and double islands. Ideal for entertaining, the triple sliding doors open to the modern saltwater pool and outdoor entertaining spaces, which include a firepit, an outdoor grill and a bocce court.

Inside, the primary suite has vaulted ceilings, a custom metal-clad fireplace and triple-sliding doors, which open to the pool. Barn doors open to the primary bathroom, which features a massive walk-in shower, vaulted ceilings and skylights.

The main house also has two en suite bedrooms, which work well for guests or as children’s bedrooms. Visitors can also stay in the attached guest suite. It features vaulted ceilings, a wet bar, living space and a bathroom with a double vanity and walk-in shower.
