Riverfront Estate

Inspired by the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina, this 750 acre property was master planned to include a 3 mile long driveway meandering through forests and pastures and punctuated with 3 man-made lakes. The approach for the home presents glimpses of the house across a hillside apple orchard. Sequential views unfold to a distant head-on approach to the front lawn and motorcourt receiving area with its magnificent 100 foot long reflecting pond.

The house was sited on the highest point of the property and overlooks the Chattahoochee River. A dramatic terraced promentory terminated by a stone folly parallels the bend in the river. The promentory visually separates the swimming pool and tennis court areas. Another unique feature of the homesite is the childrens play area. An old shrimp boat was brought in from Louisiana and transformed into a pirate's ship on site. Land Plus prepared all the necessary sketches for the development of the ship and the overall design of the custom playground equipment.
