This gorgeous Flemish brick mansion is located at 4790 Shallowford Road in Roswell, GA. It was built in 1996 and was recently expanded upon and renovated. It is situated on 3.2 gated acres and boasts 23,685 square feet of luxurious living space with 7 bedrooms, 7 full and 2 half bathrooms, formal living room, 12-seat formal dining room, elevator, gourmet kitchen, keeping room, library, recreation room with bar, 26-seat home theater, 2 ballrooms that can showcase 10-20 exotic cars(and hundreds of guests), indoor racquetball court, catering kitchens, 48 foot indoor/outdoor jacuzzi pool w 10×24 foot electronic doors that open to a uniquely designed central interior private courtyard, guest apartment, guest house and a walking path around the home. It is listed at $4,900,000, which is a steal in my opinion! The front facade is absolutely beautiful and I love the idea of having an interior courtyard to separate the main house and guest house.

    I love the facade and bathroom. The kitchen however is a major letdown and the courtyard looks a bit of a mess, theres no symmetry or flow like the front of the house.

    It’s an interesting property. The courtyard makes it looks like Epcot or Disney. The interior has some nice touches but I am throughout confused by the raised swimming pools. It looks like you’d have to be lowered into the pool by a crane to prevent any water from spilling past the dedicated drains. The home was obviously designed to entertain, but I wouldn’t call it elegant entertaining. Price ain’t bad for all the crap you’re getting.

    I don’t like the exterior, at all. At best it looks like a scaled down version of the Opryland Hotel, which I’ve been known to describe as “Southern Grandeur run amok”. OK, so the courtyard isn’t quite as over the top as the hotel’s, but it’s still a big mishmash of styles (Winchester Mansion anyone…?)

    I do like the interior, or at least most of it. I think many of the rooms are lovely, although none are groundbreaking in their design. I’m not understanding how those indoor pools are supposed to work. One splash and water would be all over the floor, and I don’t see any drains away from the pool. They’re obviously not designed for kids of people wanting to swim laps. I guess you get it and sit perfectly still…?

    The pools are “perimeter overflow” pools. Several upscale hotels here in Miami have them. The water is constantly being drained over all four walls, down the sides, being contained and recirculated into the pool so that when you get in the water doesn’t overflow onto the ground. As with any pool yes, jumping in and splashing would cause water to come out.

      Personally it just seems so unfriendly for swimming. Maybe wading or sitting on an inflatable raft drinking an adult beverage is acceptable, but for swimming it just seems like a failure, especially when it is an indoor pool. Even the most casual lap would cause water to spill over on the tile…death trap anyone? I would have made the overflow drains at least a foot wider on all sides.

    I think this is an amazing deal. This house is very well done. I like the architecture and I particularly like the huge covered front porch with the heavy columns surrounding it. The interior is nicely finished, but perhaps a little too much beige. The amenities are spot on and I really like the way the pool is incorporated into the theater. I am guessing that big room is a ballroom. I also like the courtyard and do not mind the disjointedness. It brings some interest into what otherwise could have just been something plain and uninteresting.

    I like the IDEA of the interior courtyard, but the execution here makes it look a little like one of those outdoor outlet malls. The facade is just okay…it’s elegant but the two-story covered porch with the massive columns is a little much, and I don’t like the square motor court out front. If you look at the birds eye view on this home, their images show the home as it was before the renovation and expansion, and I like the facade and driveway better as it was beforehand. If they did all the renovation you see here, minus the alterations to the facade I think I’d like the result much more.

    As most everyone has said, the design of the pools is idiotic and confusing. Elsewhere, the interior is very handsome and elegant, and a splash of color would bring it all up a few more notches. For the price, the amenities are unbeatable, and it all sits on a very nice-size piece of land (and that “walking path” would make for quite the personal mini go-kart track, no?). Not bad at all.
