Entertaining at home has become one of America's newest pastimes, and 1530 Arlington encompasses this phenomenon; it was designed for it. Invite your guests into the sumptuous entryway. Encourage them to sit in front of the fireplace in a living room laced with intricately detailed wood work. Then lead them into the dining room, where you serve them a gourmet dinner prepared in your chefâ��s kitchen. The dining room includes a wine closet that will house your most full-bodied collection. It is back-lit, and the doors to the closet are reclaimed antiques-just one of the charming historical features of the home. After dinner, your guests will migrate to the heart of the home, the kitchen, which spills over into the large family room in the rear of the house. Serve coffee on the back terrace. The unfinished guest quarters in back could become the perfect place for your out-of-town guests to spend the night. If Southern hospitality is your goal, there's no place like home! The winding stairway encircles a chandelier that hangs from the second floor, the balusters are replicated antiques, and the landing is as grand as Tara. In the study, there are richly-stained built-in bookcases, and the left-hand panel of shelves pushes back to reveal a hidden room, ideal storage for your valuables. Upstairs, the mood becomes more relaxing. The three large bedrooms surround a huge game room. The master suite accesses the front balcony, and the master bathroom includes an oversized glassed-in shower with double shower heads and a separate whirlpool tub. All of the bedrooms have their own private bathroom, and each bathroom is as individual as the people who will choose them. Each has granite countertops and custom artistic tile work. No detail has been overlooked in this home, but youâ��ll have to see it to believe it. Make an appointment today!
