Property Description

Designed by award winning architect, Stanley F. Smith, and modeled after the historic Westover Plantation in the heart of Virginia’s horse country, The Bonvista Estate offers a unique combination of historical inspiration, modern conveniences, breathtaking views and privacy while being conveniently located in the highly sought after Atlanta bedroom community of Suwanee, Georgia. Situated on 12.71 private and partially fence acres bordered by Level Creek for more than 1300 feet, the primary home is approximately 4300 square feet and recently renovated, while the guest house measuring just less than 1700 square feet feels like a cottage in the woods away from everything. The guest house is just a few steps through the woods from the main house and offers a separate driveway and covered parking area with accessible ramp to the cottage. Inside the main home offers a traditional floor plan with living room and dining room flanking the front entrance. A renovated kitchen is very current, light and bright with state of the art Viking appliances including a double oven, 8-burner gas range. The spacious utility room offer granite counters for folding space, a utility sink, desk and extensive storage cabinetry. The great room is wood trimmed and offers a fireplace and three sets of French doors to the spacious screened porch that flows out to an extensive deck, patio and garden. The Gentelman’s study offers a fireplace, extensive wood trim as well as a full bath which would make for an alternative use as a spacious bedroom. Upstairs is a renovated master suite including a luxury bath with separate vanities, a free-standing soaker tub and separate shower. There are multiple cedar-lined closets including one in the master. The secondary bedrooms upstairs share a Jack and Jill bath. The finished lower level offers a guest room space, workout room, a full second kitchen and living area along with extensive unfished space for storage and French doors to outside. The separate guest cottage is a few steps through the woods and feels like a different world. You feel transported away from the formal Georgian estate right into a fairytale cottage in the mountains in just a few steps. The cottage is a fully independent home with a master bedroom, very large living area, kitchen, screened rear porch, covered front porch and covered parking area with accessibility ramp to the cottage. It was originally build to allow for multigenerational living all on the 12.7 acre estate, but this cottage could offer tremendous possibilities including a caretakers home.
