This captivating brick manor house on a private half acre, tree filled corner lot in Morningside, is the perfect home for a buyer looking for a historic work of art. Built in 1934, it is styled on homes in the Cotswolds, UK , with built-in bookcases, shelving, sculptures, stained glass & unique architecture. Magnificent fireplaces lead to a double-spiraling brick chimney that warms the master bedroom & large finished basement. A cozy front living room leads to a side porch, providing an indoor/outdoor feel; a theme of this home. Walk through the separate dining room & discover a full glass conservatory with views of trees & sounds of the rippling stream that frames the property. Enjoy breakfast on the wrap-around outdoor deck & view the vast backyard. This home includes an oversized, light-filled master, with exposed-beamed ceiling, revealing views of the chimney & stained glass. A true owner's suite, spa-like bathroom with heated floors, walk-in closet & private office on a second-floor loft. A full-size basement features two living areas with window seating, a stunningly artistic fireplace, billiards room with bar, wine room, full bathroom, heated floors, & a kitchen scullery. A large characterful bedroom, a full bathroom & an office easy to convert as an extra bedroom, & a bonus room sit on the upper level. This manor is the birthplace of fascinating stories. The major addition added in the late 1990's was the dream of the founders of Atlanta's Creative Loafing Newspaper. The Easons created Issue #1 in 1972 in what is now the wine cellar of the house. A huge back-yard is ready for landscaping to your requirements, and a flat lawn, complete with adorable summer house, is perfect for a pool. Please see seller's disclosure for details on necessary improvements for the older part of the house, along with expert's reports and quotes.
