A rare find in exclusive Morrocroft Estates, this Georgian beauty is well-suited for the discriminating buyer looking for a home on a large private lot in the heart of SouthPark. Well established, gated and secure, the neighborhood provides protection and well-being in lovely surroundings.

Handsomely landscaped grounds and a circular drive create a stately, yet welcoming, view of a grand entrance. The 9,800 square feet of immaculate living space is the perfect combination of formal entertaining spaces and cozy, comfortable gathering areas. First steps into the entry lead to a foyer of stunning marble with a curved staircase. Flanking the entry on either side, sophisticated living and dining rooms are impeccable and charming.
A gourmet kitchen, featuring professional appliances (that include a double oven), connects to the dining room via a large butler’s pantry with wet bar. A substantial island with breakfast bar adds to a well-designed and fully equipped kitchen. A hexagon-shaped eating area brightens the kitchen with floor to ceiling windows on five sides.
The kitchen leads on to a friendly light-filled family room large enough to accommodate many family members and friends that opens to the covered terrace.
The master suite on the main floor is the picture-perfect place to relax at the end of a long day. Relieve stress in the sitting area while looking out at beautiful plants and lush landscaping.Ease into the marble spa-like bath with oversized whirlpool tub set under a Palladian window, large corner shower, and separate his and her vanities and water closets. Two huge walk-in closets are outfitted for a lady’s and a gentleman’s every need.
For the executive who works from home daily or occasionally, a gentleman’s office is accessible through the master suite and through a private outdoor entrance. Its impressive size creates the right environment for reading by the fireplace or focusing in a custom work space. Finishing off its detail is a well-placed wet bar.
Custom millwork and unique design features show off in most every room. Heavy crown moldings, centerpiece fireplace mantels, and built-ins for books and collectibles highlight the overall quality of this superb property. Showpiece pinnacle and tray ceilings heighten spaces with light and elegance.
Incredible outdoor areas surround the home. Large terraces, both covered and open, allow maximum space for relaxing beside the pool or in the shade. The treed lot with expertly designed landscaping makes this property shine. A double Roman-shaped pool is bordered on either side by picturesque lion fountains forming a calming, private retreat. A fully equipped and covered outdoor kitchen includes an eight-burner grill, refrigerator and wet bar.
“This home has the ultimate in outdoor areas for entertaining friends or relaxing as a family,” says Dee Reid. “The covered terrace can accommodate two or more dining tables, as well as multiple furniture groupings for conversation. Such gorgeous outdoor spaces beckon for use year-round.”
On the second floor, four huge ensuite bedrooms possess generous room for sitting and work areas. A large cedar closet off of the main hall is perfect for clothing and textile storage. An additional bonus room is optimal for gathering, entertainment and game space or another office/work room. This level is finished off by an extraordinary storage area. A third upper level holds yet another bonus room for a function of the owner’s design.
The lower level centers around a 12-foot wood-crafted, fully equipped bar. On either side two gathering areas with fireplaces are ideal for a third recreation area, workout room or hobby/workroom. Under the house, a walk-in crawl space is completely enclosed and prepared for storage with light fixtures and a tiled floor. A wine cellar completes this unexpected, but purely functional space.
