Haute Estate: Mediterranean Masterpiece Hits the Market In Marietta


Located in an exclusive neighborhood in East Cobb, this gorgeous estate boasts almost 12,000 square-feet of pure luxury. Custom built from top-to-bottom, the house design is filled with Italian influences most notably from Rome and Florence.  There are almost too many cool aspects of this masterpiece to fit into one article but the grand entrance surely sets the dramatic tone with the double sweeping staircases and huge centered chandelier.

“When you walk in everything has a way to get to the center.” the owner tells Haute Living Atlanta in an exclusive interview.” I wanted everything to be symmetrical”. And it really is. It all just makes sense. And comes together. But what does one do with 12,000 square feet of living space?  Apparently, there is plenty. From the gracious entertaining elements including the kitchen with breakfast room and island along with the open porch that overlooks the stunning pool and spa to the seven spacious bedrooms and bathrooms and the Italian-style pool with pillar designs, there is no travertine left unturned. Literally. The home is filled with travertine. Even the 5000 square-foot finished part of the basement boasts the dramatic travertine. In fact, the owner sought every piece of matching travertine to bring the elements together. This extends even outside around the pool area.-Kitchen 1And the chef’s kitchen is pretty neat with double the trouble, so to speak. Two ovens, two large custom refrigerators, two dishwashers and even two sinks make up this kitchen complete with marble and travertine. Even the lighting is in the kitchen was designed with a purpose in mind. The spotlights over the island, dishwasher and fridge are there for the chef du jour to have the bright light needed (but just in those areas).

Situated on nearly two acres, the estate features seven bedrooms, seven full bathrooms and three half baths. The master on the main level is another gem in this Cobb County Mansion. The suite features a serene sitting area with access to the pool and  a natural light that truly gives this room a peaceful feel.  There is also a custom-built closet with all the accoutrements.

But the main focal point of this custom home has been the pool and the backyard space. Every room and architectural element is specifically designed around the pool. With multiple views and access, the element of water sunlight and nature are paramount to the design. With the rooms mostly facing the backside of the house, no matter where you are in the home, you can likely see and feel the water elements from the pool. Verandapool view


We love the tiered Travertine sundeck with 20 -foot columns and curved balustrade surrounding hot tub and pool, not to mention the four car garage. The exquisite craftsmanship is evident through and the flexible floor plan allows for gracious entertaining and comfortable living. This architectural dream estate showcases the finest handcrafted finishes in rich materials including wrought iron, travertine, and hardwood flooring.  And unlike many homes, this one has all wood burning fireplaces except for basement suite area.  With an offer price at $1,799.000, there is no comparison and nothing like this around the city. Trust us. But you better hurry because this stunning estate bursting with luxurious elements will not be on the market very long.
