An obvious theme in this house is the commitment to detail found throughout. The paver brick driveway is surrounded by professional landscaping. The exterior of this custom home has gorgeous stonework complemented by brick and capstones over the windows. A soft tudor flair appears over the arched entryway.

The main level features a flowing, open floor plan including a spacious dining room, formal living room and oversized great room and fabulous gourmet kitchen.

The kitchen features high-end professional grade appliances. Brand names like Thermador and Bosch all predict a gourmet experience while surrounded by solid mahogany custom cabinets granite counters and a travertine tile backsplash.
The current owners indicate that their favorite room is the master suite. Do you think it might become your favorite place as well? Enviable highlights in this space include its grand scale, vaulted trey ceiling with heavy molding, and a morning bar that includes a sink and a space for a mini fridge. There are two oversized master closets and an incredible bathroom. The floors in this space are travertine, there is a sauna shower, jetted tub, double vanities and incredible views to the backyard.

Maybe one of the best features of this home is its unique location. Indeed, Forsyth County as a whole is a great place to live, but within the St. Marlo neighborhood, Stone Grove has a secret retreat in its midst — a beautiful grassy area, a gazebo and fish pond. It is the perfect place for adults and children to play and gather, and since it is on a cul-de-sac, it is a very safe location in this community as well. All this and this gem of a gathering space is directly across the street from this home for sale! “Perfect” is the word that comes to mind!
