East Cobb County is well-known for its spectacular real estate. Yet, there’s one home located in this highly coveted community that is as unexpected as it is unique, and it’s waiting for a new owner to add another chapter to its already impressive story. So take a turn off of Marietta’s unassuming two-lane Woodlawn Drive and experience Villa Flora, a residence unlike any you’ve ever seen.

Nestled on just over one acre, the 7,338-square-foot home takes you to the Mediterranean with its villa-inspired architecture and design. Built in 1968 and completely renovated in 2009, it features six spacious bedrooms and 6.5 well-appointed baths, including a luxury spa-like master bath oasis with a unique garden shower and doors that lead directly to the outdoor swimming pool. It also boasts a state-of-the-art chef’s kitchen with a Wolf stove, range and 48” subzero refrigerator, two Bosch dishwashers and a woodfire pizza oven. What’s more, a man cave, an Au Pair suite with a separate laundry area and a breathtaking two-story glass atrium at the heart of the home are just a few of the additional interior features that make this distinctive residence stand out. And the home’s resort-style exterior living space is equally inspiring, with a completely private backyard that includes a stunning pool and hot tub, an al fresco dining area, an outdoor fireplace, a koi pond, a greenhouse and a full garden with hardscapes and apple, fig and pear trees, among other features.

Of course, the unseen hallmarks of this home are what make it truly grand. For instance, over the years, prior owners have offered fantastic stories about the residence, which is said to have been visited by a variety of dignitaries and former presidents, including Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan, as well as celebrities like golf legend Arnold Palmer. Also, the azaleas adorning the property’s backyard were gifted to the home’s first owner by the Callaway Family, of Callaway Resort & Gardens, which is renowned for its trademark rare azaleas. And Villa Flora was ready for its Hollywood closeup when its renovation was featured on HGTV and YouTube used it as a dazzling backdrop for its popular web series, Cobra Kai.

Now, the property is ready for a new homeowner—one who will appreciate and understand the hidden gem that sits along a quiet street in East Cobb. While currently occupied, the home can be viewed by appointment or during one of two open house events on August 3 and 10. This is an exclusive opportunity to own one of metro Atlanta’s unsung treasures and live a lifestyle that very few residents in Cobb County get to experience. Don’t let this extraordinary chance slip away.
