This historic home was built by the Martin Family, builders and developers along the Chattahoochee River. Nicknamed “The Roost”, it was built in a lodge style, a hunting and fishing retreat located just below the island at the Horseshoe Bend portion of the river. Because this is one of the earlier houses to be built, nestled right on the river with one of the longest river frontages and enough acreage to provide desired privacy. As a traditional lodge, cozy and warm feelings resonate throughout the home. Enjoy the renovated master bed/bath which opens up to a second floor balcony with unrivaled views. The walls and ceilings are rough hewn timber, the flooring is primarily polished brick and wood, and some of the interior walls are quartz rock floor to ceiling. Of the four fireplaces, the one in the family room can easily handle four-foot logs. The sunken library is ideal for an office, or welcoming area for guests. Outdoor you’ll enjoy the private salt water pool and cabana overlooking the river. When pulling into the driveway, you immediately relax, knowing that you’ve left the city for your private river retreat.
