CLINTON: $650,000 - 345 Cross Pike Rd., 3bd/3.5bth:
Man I love my job! These houses I get to photograph are so cool, and this most recent one is no exception.
I described it to my husband as a modern farmhouse in a rural setting. I'm not sure if that's what a real architect would call it, but ya'll catch my drift.
The house was just finished a couple of months ago, so it's brand spanking new. It sits on 5 acres with some great views of the Cumberland Mountains. I'd definitely spend a few evenings on that front porch watching sunsets.
As you turn into the property, the builder saved two old white oak trees that frame the driveway. The leaves have all fallen off for the winter when I was there, but it's still a pretty impressive entrance feature.
Speaking of entrances, that front door, though! It's a double wooden door, each with large 4-pane windows. I love it!
The interior of the home has lots of open living space with high ceilings and light-colored, wide-plank pine floors. And oh my heavens! Y'all know how much I love unique light fixtures. This home is loaded with them! The foyer, the living room, the kitchen – everywhere you look there are amazing lights.
The kitchen has a large center island with space on one side for 4 high-top style chairs on one side, and a large farmhouse sink on the other side. The kitchen backsplash is white, hand-molded subway tile - oooooolala! Subway tile is another one of my favorite features in a home.
The master on main is to die for! The suite has a fabulous light fixture over the bed – of course – and the master bath has a custom-built double vanity with a walk-in shower and a sweet little soaker tub!
Both the upstairs bedrooms are pretty cool, too. Each is it's own suite, complete with a full bath. By the way, I'm loving the penny tile floors in both bathrooms. One of the upstairs suites is designed for a girl with pink wainscot The other one is designed for a boy with dark gray wainscot and black trim.
I really like the landing at the top of the stairs. There is a gallery wall complete with lighting to showcase pieces of art, be it a Picasso or a finger-painting by the kids or grandkids. The upstairs also has a bonus room with vaulted ceiling, overlooking the back acreage.
This was a really fun photo shoot. I can only imagine how cool it would be to live is this beautiful home!
