A Sandy Springs home on nearly 2.5 acres has been recognized in luxury magazines for a prized possession: one of the country’s largest wine cellars. And that’s not all. The home was built in 1997 by the grandson of Atlanta’s 50th Mayor, Roy LeCraw, and the son of one of the largest real estate developers in the city’s history.
The home sits behind a huge, private pond with an illuminated fountain and parking courtyard.
Inside is a grand staircase. It divides a separate formal living room, a large great room and a private study with wood paneling. Views of the Pebble Tec saline pool can be seen from the eat-in kitchen. The kitchen also features a large island and top-tier appliances.
Then, there’s the terrace-level wine cellar. With the capacity to hold more than 10,000 bottles, it’s one of the biggest privately owned cellars in the country.
Waterfalls flow into the koi and goldfish ponds outdoors, where a bridge leads to the spa tub and heated pool. There’s also a two-story playhouse over an exotic bird aviary. A spa gives you salon-style amenities at home, with a massage station and a sauna. There’s also a hair salon.
A large in-law suite sits atop the seven-car garage, which has three climate-controlled spaces. The suite features a kitchen, laundry room and full bath and could be used as an entertainment/game room. An elevated hallway connects it to the main home.
