FARRAGUT: $412,000 - 349 Rockwell Farm Ln., 4bd/3bth:
I don't know about y'all, but kitchens and master bedrooms/baths are what help me connect with a house.
I've been in some A-mazing homes with great amenities, but at the end of the day, we spend most of our time at home in the kitchen or in our bedrooms. This home at Rockwell scores big in both those areas.
This home has a great kitchen space, and I love how it's laid out. There's lots of cabinets and plenty of prep space, which is key for me. I also like how the kitchen looks into the family room so the you can still socialize with family and friends while whipping up a tasty meal or some hearty snacks.
Just off the kitchen there's multi-purpose room is at least big enough for a pool table. Itr's great place for the guys to hang, when the ladies kick them out of the kitchen.
Hardwood floors are featured throughout the home, including the dining room. And y'all know how much I love unique light fixtures, so you know I'm cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs about that chandelier in the dining room.
There's an in-law suite on the main floor which would be nice for guests. A bonus area at the top of the stairs is a great spot to send the teens to play their video games. It would also make a great play area for the little ones or a study area for the older kids
As fabulous as I think the kitchen space is, it's the master suite that impressed me most about this home. It's gorgeous and I really like double-sided fireplace the suite shares with the attached sitting room, which you could use a bunch of different ways – nursery, office, small gym or your own private reading nook.
If you're like me and can never have too much closet space, then you'll love the walk-in closet in the master suite. Actually, I'm not sure "walk-in" is the best description for this closet. It's more like a walk-in-turn-around-stretch-out type of closest. I swear I think the kitchen in my first house was smaller than this closet!
Of course the master bath is awesome, too. The soaker tub and the custom tile shower really give this bath a spa-like feel.
A ground-level deck overlooks a fenced-in backyard. It's great spot for outdoor entertaining and there are plenty of trees to provide shade for those hot summers here in East Tennessee.
This is a great home, but don't wait long if you're interested. This market is still pretty hot.
