Beautiful Farmhouse On The French Broad River Merges Modern With Magical

The 3,385 square-foot house was built in a traditional farmhouse style with modern touches, such as sleek ironwork handrails, a contemporary kitchen with old barn accents, and an all white interior with classic moldings. The home is also environmentally friendly with geothermal heating, a modern wood stove, and solar power.
The vision for this beautiful home all started a few years ago when the homeowners met with Grant as they were trying to decide whether to build a new home or buy and renovate an older one. At the time, they were living in a loft downtown and what they knew for sure was that the land is what mattered the most to them.
As it turned out, they fell in love with a 30-acre parcel of land with access to the French Broad River. The land had a couple of barns on it but no house, so they could start with a clean slate. The homeowners and Grant agreed on a vision of where the house would sit and soon their dreams turned into blueprints thanks to the expertise of architect Jonathan Miller.Read More
Look inside lavish house for sale near Knoxville, priced at $5.5 million
Source: Knoxville News SentinelIf your home-buying budget is 95 times the U.S. per capita income, there’s a house waiting for you on Parsonage Lane.
“The Bellamont,” as it’s dubbed, is a 7,051-square-foot house with three bedrooms, three bathrooms and three half-baths, on 17.13 acres. Designed by architect Jonathan Miller as an English-style country manor, it sits at 7520 Parsonage Lane SW, eight miles southwest of Knoxville and a mile east of Marble Springs, Gov.

“The materials are unbelievable,” she said, while offering a tour of the property. “The materials in this house are the artwork.”
Teasley said the house may remain a private home, could be used as a privately-owned resort, or would make an excellent corporate retreat. It’s divided into a guest wing – including a private coffee area – and a master wing, with common areas in the middle.Read More
