FARRAGUT: $459,900 - 12319 Cotton Blossom Ln., 4bd/3.5bth: When I pulled up to photograph this new listing for Ashley Mullins, Realty Executives, Oak Ridge, I was pleased to see that it wasn't just another standard rancher. Although from the front, it looked a bit smaller than I expected for a home in The Battery Subivision. But as I walked in, I realized that the street view wasn't the only thing in this home that would make me say, "Wait! What? Oh wow!"
First of all, this house is much bigger than what it appears from the street, weighing in at just over 3300 sq ft...... not the cottage size it appears to be. Walk in the front door, and - Wow!!! That front door!! All the charm of an older home in a newer build!! The foyer opens up into a massive great room. I love the built-in around the fire place and the high ceilings! That wall of glass doors leads to a very private, enclosed patio. Wait! What? Oh wow!! Who would ever know this was back here?!! An oasis away from the prying eyes of the nosey neighbors, watching and waiting for you to get home because they "have a question" or need to "tell you about soand-so," who always has just one more story when all you want to do is sit back, have a drink and not think for a little bit. (I can tell by the look on your face that someone just popped into your head!)
Let's go back in and take a look at that kiitchen, with all the cabinets and granite counters, all open to that great room so chef can enjoy family and friends while a feast is being prepared. And just off the kitchen is a butler's pantry that includes shelves for extra food storage and another length of base cabinets and counter for extra dish and small appliances storage. The counter will be handy for all sorts of purposes!
I love the teired ceiling in the master, and the hallway leading to the bath has a huge closet on either side. And that soaking tub in the bath....... oooooolala!! Can you feel those soar muscles relaxing? And that big walk-in shower with 3 shower heads!! No reason to walk out without being squeaky clean! And there's another bedroom off the master with a second entrance from the foyer. This room could be used for an office, reading room, or even a bedroom. But those built-in cabinets on one wall just aren't what they appear to be - cabinets. Nope! A tug on one of the handles will reveal a Murphy bed!! That's right, a modern day Murphy bed! Perfect for space when you have just one more guest needing a place to lay their head. And this guest will also have their own bathroom as this room has an ensuite.
Now, let me show you something else ...... right upstairs. Besides the 2 HUGE bedrooms with walk-in closets and a shared Jack-and-Jill bath, look closer at that bookshelf in the hall. Wait! What? Oh wow!!! Yep!! A hidden doorway to a secret hallway that leads to a private room!!! And think of all the things that room can be used for..... home gym, office, teenager bedroom....... And there are 2 more big, walk-in closets.
Seriously cool house!!!!
