Rarely do site and structure so perfectly align to evoke such a strong and lasting sense of wonder. Situated on over 10 acres in Hardin Valley on a totally unique landscape, this French Provincial home presents a unique experience born from its premier location and architectural excellence. Comprised of 4 bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms and 2 half baths on over 8,000SF, this bespoke estate basks in the prestige of its creators, with incredible features that include seamless indoor/outdoor living, panoramic nature views from virtually every space, a heated saltwater pool, and utter privacy. An additional two bedrooms can be accommodated including walk-in closets in each. This unrivaled property is even detailed with an authenticated 1820's log cabin, transported from Pennsylvania to grace the grounds with its historic prestige. The park-like setting of this sprawling estate is emphasized by massive rocks and boulders, with professional landscaping that draws the eye before it finally settles on the wonder of the magnificent stately mansion on the hill. Surrounded by spacious terraces, patios, and built-in gazebo, this picturesque home leads to a pair of leaded glass entry doors that open to reveal your dream home. Upon entry, the grand foyer steals the scene, highlighting hardwood floors, a custom medallion, and dramatic spiral staircase graced by wrought iron spindles. To one side of the foyer, a sophisticated living room grants a voluminous feel with floor-to-ceiling bay windows and ornate mantled fireplace. A handsome study reveals itself under tray ceilings with bay windows before the layout flows through the large butler's pantry with granite countertops. Under tray ceilings, the dining room deploys an elegant vibe with custom built-ins flanking a double-sided fireplace shared with the living room. This space is open to the opulent gourmet kitchen fully equipped with premium stainless appliances, a 5 burner gas range, U-shaped granite island, and expansive windows that showcase the scenic views. The main floor master suite is a palatial retreat born of the most thoughtful amenities including His/Hers walk-in closets and sitting room that walks out to the gazebo. A luxe ensuite bath offers a spa-like experience with architectural glass blocks over a whirlpool tub, separate ceramic tile shower and double sinks with makeup area. The entry staircase winds up to the second floor with catwalk that looks down over the preceding living room before flowing into a front-facing bedroom with bay window, walk-in closet and full ensuite bath. Three additional bedrooms grace this floor, along with bonus room that can serve as storage or hobby room. The finished lower level offers a plethora of recreational activities including rec room with custom painted Vols Football mural, a stacked stone fireplace and wet bar with wine chiller and ice maker, as well as a home gym. A bedroom with private entrance, sitting room, ensuite bath functioning as a lovely MIL suite apartment, with craft/wrapping room tucked around the corner. This home has been thoroughly upgraded with new HVAC systems, new water heater, house-wide sound system, and home security system as just a few of the many upgraded features found throughout.
This intimate yet palatial home is neighbored to a Land Trust so the amazing views will not change. The extensive sculpted grounds are about half wooded, so the natural and secluded feel is unmatched. The quarter mile drive from the street to the house is the result of a very intentional landscape architectural design intended to evoke a sense of mystery while creating the sensation of nature and peacefulness. The cabin nestled on the property is a newly restored 600 ft2, 1.5 story cabin with historical ties to the 1776 Revolutionary War. Its white oak logs were hand cut and hewed 200 years ago from trees born as early as 1677. Relocated from the Pittsburg, PA area, all of its provenance has been preserved. The cabin offers a 600 ft2 interior with exposed beamed ceilings and 228 ft2 covered porches with cinder block foundation. There is PermaChink between the logs with heavy insulation, a heavily insulated and reinforced 50-year cedar shake roof, solid wood doors, historical period hardware, and historical period windows.
While this significant estate boasts a tranquil and secluded feel, the location is close to everything West Knoxville has to offer, just a few minutes from Melton Hill Lake Park and boat ramps, 10min to Turkey Creek, and 4min to Food City.
