Excellent Social Storm™ Property with Great Privacy & Security
The EarthCraft Home is an Architectural Masterpiece Designed to Fit the Land
“Edge Valley” is a private valley just north of Columbus, Georgia which features one of the few “EarthCraft” designed homes in the area. Certified as the “Gold Standard” the 6,170 +/- sq ft home not only fits the land but also boasts some of the most energy savings and environmentally friendly materials money can buy. The private 111 wooded acres surround the 14.5-acre lake. The wooded hillsides, streams, and meadows are unique to this beautiful area. Wild game is plentiful. The property is exceptional as a private estate or Social Storm Property™.
The landowner thoughtfully laid out the custom home with everything she would want… and then Grandchildren called her away! The “EarthCraft” home is strategically positioned on the NE side of the lake. Although the Edge family has been in Columbus for six generations, the seller is very private.
The home features a grand outdoor pavilion complete with an outdoor fireplace, and sweeping wraparound porches from the backside of the home. Uniquely, a large amount of the wood and stone was pulled directly from what is now the lake bottom, kiln-dried, and used throughout, including the Red & White Oak Floors, Cupola Ceiling Beams, Poplar Interior Doors, and Trim Work. Intricate wood detail, Red Oak, White Oak, and Hickory are seen in the remainder of the house, including the entrance living room and porch timber frame structure, ceiling beams and kitchen cabinetry, among other details. Under beautiful beams, the grand stone "Goat Rock" fireplace warmly lights the living room. One of the most interesting features of the home is a clear in-laid flooring feature which provides plenty of natural sunlight to the first floor, and a clear view of the cupola above. A commercial-grade sink and oven, Blue Gray Granite Island, and open concept kitchen make cooking a joy and is great for entertaining and family.
While the home currently is comprised of 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, there is space and plumbing to build an additional bedroom and bathroom in the basement floor level, should the new landowner desire. The current landowner also has plans (and matching Marvin Windows) for a Mother-in-law suite to be built adjacent to the home.
For those unfamiliar with an “EarthCraft" designation, what it means is that the home is certified that it is sourced, constructed, and designed to reduce environmental impacts, while also saving homeowners a projected 30 percent on their energy bills. As such, the home features solar power, earthen basement floors, geothermal HVAC, and geothermal wells. The home is designed so that much of the house can be heated from the basement stove with fans, and with the press of a button, the windows in the cupola provide for air exchange. This home has achieved the very difficult “Gold Standard” rating.
Additional improvements/features include an upstairs two-car garage, a lower level enclosed two-car garage/work shop, a separate metal building with enclosed parking, pole barn and shed, and a pump house for the well.
The 14.5-acre pond has a boat ramp and boardwalk/dock out into the lake, making fishing a breeze, and the lake is well-stocked with Florida Hybrid Bass and Crappie. The lake dam and spillway are exceptionally designed, and great care was taken to provide fish habitat structure throughout the lake. The property has 550 to 430-foot elevation and is mixed pine and hardwood forest. There are approximately 1.5 +/- miles of trails and several creeks. The property has deer, turkey, and ducks. Hunters will enjoy two strategically placed shoot houses, and a convenient deer-cleaning station just outside the home, with a mudroom for post-hunt clean-ups. Also, just outside the home is a fenced-in garden (fenced so the deer population does not interfere with growing crops).
Edge Valley is an exceptionally secure property and has great privacy and good neighbors. It is a highly ranked Social Storm property. Thoughtfully laid out in case of an emergency, a cedar-lined walk-in closet with a lockable gunroom hides a crawl space that is accessible in two directions. Additionally, positioned not far off the gated front entrance is an underground storage bunker.
The natural beauty of Edge Valley beckons. While tucked away among wild nature, steep hillsides, and heavy forests, Edge Valley is also conveniently located to town amenities, dining, and shopping. The famed Chattahoochee River is about a mile and a half west and offers a long promenade for walking or biking along the riverside. Brookstone Private School and Sam's Club are only 15 minutes away. Columbus, GA (20 minutes away) offers unique local history, arts, entertainment, and a thriving food scene. Both before the pandemic and now, Columbus has been regarded as one of the great new cities of the South. It has an exceptional business climate, a great economic base, and great outdoor recreation nearby. It’s exactly the type of city that young growing companies relocate to. The Columbus Airport is only 20 minutes away and offers exceptional private flight access. There is also a convenient airport shuttle service to and from the Atlanta International Airport (which is only one hour and twenty minutes away for added accessibility/travel).
The time, planning, and cost to build this home today vs its turn-key condition is unmeasurable. The lake, in fact, could not be duplicated today at any cost. Trying to find a private valley within 25 minutes of any city or airport would be next to impossible.
