Welcome to 1531 Riverwalk Rd, a custom, Craftsman/Ranch-style home nestled on 5+ Acres in Bishop, GA! Perfectly located just 20 mins from downtown Athens, (home of the University of Georgia) and 30 minutes from Stanton Springs, the high-tech and bio-pharma industrial park, home to Facebook's newest data center. A wooded, curving driveway opens to an expansive courtyard with room for multiple vehicles. Have a trailer or RV? The site was designed to be accessible to all vehicle types with discrete parking for larger vehicles around the entire home. The surrounding hardwoods support abundant and diverse wildlife. Enjoy quiet, star-filled night skies. In the distance, you can often hear the gentle rapids of the Apalachee river that meanders along the 10 acres Commons, a natural park with pavilion accessible to all community members. Approved for equestrian use, the lot is bordered on the rear by conservation-use forest land. Centered at the highest elevation within the lot is an eye-catching, character-rich home. Deep overhangs, board and batten siding and exposed rafter tails are some of the many signature architectural elements. 2x6 walls and thermally-reflective roof decking will help you keep our world greenand your energy bills low. Swing open any of the many high-end Marvin Integrity windows and let in the fresh air. Flanking the main structure are two 25' x 40' concrete pads. Roughed in for electrical and plumbing, these are ready for your 3-car garage and custom shop. Like to cook and entertain? This home has a kitchen to die for! Gorgeous granite countertops, 2 sinks, all stainless appliances: 2 dishwashers, trash compactor, undercounter icemaker, convection oven plus an electric cooktop, a 5-burner gas cooktop, commercial vent hood, large island, breakfast bar & walk-in pantry. Work from home? Just off the kitchen is a large home office with room for multiple workstations. The cathedral ceilings in the great room invite you in to relax and take in the wonderful views of the lush, towering oaks through a stunning expanse of windows. Traverse the beautiful Tigerwood flooring and settle in for rest in a master bedroom suite that includes two walk-in closets, a wet bar and private exterior door. The adjoining main bathroom welcomes you with vaulted ceilings, custom tile and solid-surface countertops. Bathe the stress away in the enormous walk-in shower or the luxurious garden tub, step out onto toasty warm, heated Travertine floors feeling refreshed. The upper-level loft overlooks the great room/foyer. The perfect place for a playroom, art studio, yoga space or an additional office! Substantial attic space flanks both sides of the loft. Use it for additional storage or build it out for added living space with existing stub outs for electrical, plumbing and A/C. Beneath the main level is 3000+ sq feet of unfinished basement with 9'+ ceilings. Slab is roughed in with plumbing for 1.5 baths, bar, and another laundry! Secure your valuables or find shelter during a storm in a fortified, 7' x 16' safe room. A 20' x 20' workshop area with built-in shelves, great lighting, and a solid, double-level bench is ready for your next hobby project. Want to keep your boat or 4-wheelers protected inside? Roll up the garage door and pull them in. This basement is simply enormous! Within the dedicated mechanical space, you will find two of the three, high-efficiency, whisper-quiet AC units. A central vac and oversized, commercial-grade air filters which keep indoor air quality at its best. Enjoy endless hot water with the brand-new tankless water heater. For redundancy and even more peace of mind, there is a second, electric water heater. But what if the power goes out? No worries. A whole house generator will automatically switch over and deliver the power you need. If you want for a home that is thoughtfully designed, carefully sited and solidly built, 1531 Riverwalk Rd is definitely for you! Extras: Attic Storage,Underg
