  1. More Than A Masterpiece

    Architectural Digest AD100 January 2024

    The best home designs artfully bring the client's dream to life while fitting seamlessly within the natural surroundings.

    "We want our homes to look like they've always been there," says architect Jonathan Miller, RA, AIA. "The goal is achieving a space that is unique yet feels timeless and familiar."

    Since 2002, Miller Architecture + Design Studio has been creating spectacular homes for clients in Tennessee and across the country. From traditional to contemporary, English cottage to French modern, farmhouse to mountain retreat, a Miller-designed home feels tailored for each client and setting.

    "You can't have great architecture withour great relationships. We are a uniquely Southern firm, and relations are everything to us," explains Miller. "We love to get to know clients and how they live. The design process grows from there."

    For the team at Miller Architecture + Design Studio, light and views are central to their award-winning portfolio of custom-designed homes. What fuels Miller's process, however, isn't awards and accolades, but a passion for creating homes where his clients love to be, to live in, to share, and to create memories with their family and friends.

  1. Finding Their Way Home

    Cityview Magazine

    In this feature, here is some of what the owners say: Micah and Russell knew very little about what they wanted in a new home. “We knew we wanted at least three bedrooms. And our architect Jonathan gave us four,” Micah says. That was just about all Jonathan Miller had to go on when he began designing the home.

    “We did not know what we were doing, but we had the dream team,” says Micah, smiling.

    After a lot of listening to Micah and Russell, the architect came up with the open concept home they love with multiple sliding glass doors and walls of Windsor windows that fill the rooms with natural light. He knew just how to make the space flow. “Jonathan knocked it out of the park,” she says.

    Cityview Magazine

    Smoky Mountain home blends the beauty of its surroundings into every detail.

    Tables made locally from pre-Civil War seasoned wood, walls showcasing one-of-a-kind art and a unique table created from an International Harvester truck grill — these pieces begin to tell the story of an inspired getaway in the Smoky Mountains. But it is nature — breathtaking views, and gorgeous design and building materials — that stars in this rustic and elegant new mountain home, say homeowners Maria and Ed Newman.

    “The outdoors inspired this house,” says Maria, a Knoxville gastroenterologist. “We’re in, but we’re out. Even when we’re inside, we are surrounded by the outdoors.”

  1. Beautiful Farmhouse On The French Broad River Merges Modern With Magical

    McCamy Construction

    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.

  1. Look inside lavish house for sale near Knoxville, priced at $5.5 million

    Knoxville News Sentinel

    If 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. John Sevier’s log farmhouse.

    It’s priced at $5.5 million, or an estimated $22,138 per month, according to its listing.

    Judy Teasley, agent for Keller Williams Realty, says the house is like an art museum – but the exhibit is the building itself.

    “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.
