Located just over an hour’s drive north of Atlanta, Gainesville is a scenic city ideal for homeowners seeking refuge from city life. With Lake Lanier at its heart and nearby hiking preserves such as Don Carter State Park, outdoor activities abound, from fishing to boating. In addition to its outdoor allure, Gainesville also has a historic downtown area with captivating local museums and historical monuments, along with charming shops, restaurants, and art galleries.

A recent addition to the Gainesville market, 5651 Old Wilkie Road is a breathtaking property spanning 4.56 deeded acres across three adjacent private lots on Lake Lanier. With approximately 4.5 additional acres of COE property, around 550 linear feet of lake frontage, and three COE-deeded covered docks, this gated estate offers ample opportunities for customization.

The main house is a 6,658-square-foot, five-bedroom, 5.5-bathroom California ranch. It features high-end finishes throughout, including four-inch oak hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, and a seamless blend of modern and contemporary design elements.

The living room impresses with towering ceilings and a grand two-story stone fireplace, while the chef’s kitchen stands out with exotic granite countertops and Thermador appliances.

The primary bedroom is a tranquil retreat with a tray ceiling, private access to a covered porch with Lake Lanier views, a sitting room overlooking the surrounding property, and a walk-in dressing room with custom closet storage. Its luxurious en-suite bathroom features a footed soaking tub, exotic granite counters, and a massive walk-in shower. 

Also, the home includes a second kitchen and a separate living area with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, ideal for intergenerational living arrangements or as a vacation rental, given the property’s V-C zoning.

Other noteworthy features of the property include a 3,000-square-foot accessory building with three 20-foot roll-up doors, a deep well, city water, a whole-house generator, and two tankless water heaters.

Nestled amid Gainesville’s natural splendor and just 40 minutes from Alpharetta, 5651 Old Wilkie Road epitomizes lakeside luxury and presents discerning buyers with an unparalleled opportunity for a listing price of $3,250,000.
