Many years and lots of research were done before the final design was completed on this beautiful unique Tudor Chalet Style home that sits on top of the hill overlooking the Volga valley! Most of the locals know this place as the Castle House; complete with a turret that rises above the main and upper floors. A one-of-a-kind estate that could be a beautiful large residence, a bed and breakfast, a hunting lodge, or apartments. You are only limited by your imagination. For many years this home had 5 different apartments. Currently the main level is a large 3-bedroom home with a very spacious kitchen, a second kitchen that could be used for canning, and a large wrap-around deck but this level could easily be converted back to two apartments. The upper level is a very spacious 2-bedroom apartment with its own balcony and breathtaking views! The lower level of this home was once 2 two-bedroom apartments but with renovations started it currently is one large apartment with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms which needs to be finished. There are endless possibilities with this exceptional property so call today to own a piece of Clayton County’s history!
