FARRAGUT: $895,000 - 2004 River Sound Dr., 5bd/4.5bth:
Good gracious! I get to visit some really awesome homes, and this one is flat-out amazing. For starters, this home has a waterfall, y'all! The beautifully landscaped waterfall is built into the hill in the backyard and is best viewed from the covered back porch that runs the length of the house.
But let's start at the front door. The moment you step inside you see a beautiful curved staircase leading to 2nd floor bridge. It makes a dramatic statement, as does the stunning view through the foyer windows of the backyard waterfall. The view is framed by the architectural columns supporting the bridge, which connects the staircase with the 4 bedrooms and gigantic bonus room on the second floor.
The serene master-on-main suite offers a comfortable place to unwind. It has a fireplace and sitting area that overlook the waterfall in the backyard. The master bath is huge with his-and-her vanities separated by a large jacuzzi tub. That walk-in shower, though. The tile work is stunning!
The gorgeous family room has great built-ins and another fireplace. The family room opens into the kitchen and breakfast area, with windows opening to back porch.
The rec room in the basement is ginormous!!!!! Just how big is it? There's a full 2nd kitchen that is larger than most people's first kitchen. A cozy, shaded patio is just off the rec room, and it's the place I'd go to enjoy a cup of coffee and a good book.
In this home you'll never have an excuse to miss a workout because there's a home gym in the basement complete with foam-cushioned flooring. The gym even has it's own entrance to the basement bathroom for showering after a good workout.
If you like entertaining on game day, you'll love the amazing home theater with projector and theater lighting. That screen has to be at least 7 feet wide! In addition, there are speakers throughout the home so you can pipe audio of the game – or some groovn' tunes – into every corner.
I really like the bonus room and the 5th bedroom that feature hand-painted wall murals. It gives the rooms a kid-friendly feel.
Like I said, this home is a-may-zing! Maybe I can convince whoever buys it to let me hang out by the waterfall.
