Monday Morning Millionaire: It’s a Wonderful Life on Woodfin

Share News:

I drove through Rockbrook Estates last week and was reminded of how wonderful it is: beautiful lawns, leaft trees, shade and a nice hum of relaxation. I know this is where Daryl and Diane Johnston built right down the street, the Schlegels are not too far away, and life is generally perfect in this neck of the woods. So when I saw Missy Woehr’s new listing at 4209 Woodfin, I was all over it.It’s a huge new home, 7059 square feet on a 2/3rds acre corner lot with — get this — a 550 square foot quarters for guests, returning college kids, or parents. I was at a high school party this weekend and heard that everyone’s kids are coming home from college and staying put with mom and dad. Oh well, at least you don’t have to car pool them.) This home was built in 2006, designed by Robin Riddle with architecture by Mark Barry. There are six bedrooms, five and a half baths, three totally knocked out living areas, a workout room, five car garage, pation, lush landscaping, and so much interior/exterior stone you’ll think you’re in a quarry. Oh yes, cannot forget the Ludowici Clay roof! What I love is the soft French decor touches, not that heavy, drama-esque, “Old World” feel that I think, personally, belongs right back in the Old World or Dark Ages. Yecht. Give me light, give me bright, give me clean lines and this home has it all. Asking $2,799,000 but hey, it’s a beautiful Monday morning and we can all dream, can’t we?

    Pretty. Heard the Johnstons might be moving… they are tiring of ESD and that teacher who had sex with a student. Wasn't that just awful?
