The allure of country living is easy to understand—cleaner air, less noise, more privacy, and the beauty of the great outdoors. And, with the unprecedented rise in work from home and remote working over the past year, more of us than ever before are in a position to swap busy city life for the tranquility of the countryside. According to the experts, we’re already seeing a “race for space” that will only intensify in a post-COVID world as former city dwellers seek the access to nature and peace that rural living offers. Chances are, once you make the change from urban living to a luxurious country estate, you’ll wonder why you didn’t do it earlier.

 

Country estates also tend to be realized at a far grander scale than their city counterparts. Just take this elegant estate secluded on 200 acres amidst towering trees and rolling meadows in Lincoln, Alabama, currently on the market.

One of the country’s foremost entrepreneurs built the sprawling home and designed it for entertaining and family living on a grand scale, with nearly 14,000-square-feet of living space in the main home alone. “There are unique architectural details in every room, including gorgeous chandeliers, handcrafted built-ins and moldings, wrought iron details, ornate fireplace, and custom lighting, explains listing broker Marilyn Hoffman of Hoffman International Properties. “The gourmet chef ’s kitchen has an oversized double-oven gas range, industrial-size refrigerator, beverage fridge, coffee bar, breakfast bar, and opening into the large family room. There are 5-bedroom suites, each with its own exquisite bath and large walk-in closet. The master suite is a show stopper with a free-standing tub, marble flooring, and custom design.”

 

Without the constraints of urban living, this massive country estate has a plethora of amenities to offer, including a total of nine bathrooms, a resort-style pool, a spacious patio with an outdoor kitchen, a home theatre, and even a renovated barn that sets the scene for lavish parties.

Beyond the luxury of the expansive home, however, it’s the proximity to some of Alabama’s most impressive natural wonders that really sets it apart. It’s just a short drive to the Coosa River, which is rich in aquatic biodiversity and lush scenery, and less than an hour to Cheaha State Park, in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, and Talladega National Forest. Located only 44 miles from Birmingham, this Lincoln estate is the epitome of elegance.

 

2101 Patton Chapel, Lincoln, Alabama, is offered at $2,900,000 or $3,500,000 lavishly furnished.
