  • DESCRIPTION

    Welcome to “Ellie Rye”----an estate where country-French tradition is merged with classic elegance and the warmth and heart of the South !!! The appeal of this “Jack Arnold designed” home was inspired by the owner's desire to combine beauty, sophistication and grace in a home that would last for generations. It was built by a creation of southern artists, architects, gardeners and master craftsmen who all shared a focus of a “simply Southern home”. The mature and custom designed landscape is graced with a Southern arbor of magnolias, redbuds, crape myrtles and oak trees. It even has one of the few remaining American elm trees left in Georgia (which has been honored with the rope swing.) Bordered by a creek with “walking” stones, it has a foot path graced with shade loving native ferns, trillium, mosses and wild flowers. The architecture is a combination of distinctive materials from around the world and Georgia which come together to grace this home with an air of quiet strength. From a reclaimed sixteenth-century farmhouse floor, to a kitchen counter top from the royal quarry in England's Lake District, to 125-year-old white oak flooring from a mill in Alabama, the home was built with durable, quality and enduring materials. A dynamic, yet subtle, feature felt in every part of this home, is “light”--- permeating the interior of the home and resulting in soft, warm illumination throughout. The kitchen was made for “serious” cooking--- Viking Professional appliances of top quality. Built to last generations using high-end materials, green design elements, and soundproofing, the home is also HERS (energy efficiency) rated at 5 Stars Plus. With abundant grounds there is ample space to add more gardens and/or water elements. Inside, the subtle pallet is welcoming and ready for either colorful accents or neutrals. Also, a third floor attic space allows for further expansion for media, exercise, office or studio. Perfectly centered in desirable Oconee County and close to the major arteries, this house is the epitome of quiet sophistication combined with superior quality and stunning detail. Old Farm Estates is an exclusive and unique oasis, a quiet best kept secret place for family and an enclave of distinctive, custom built homes.
