Relax and unwind the moment you enter the gates to this once-in-a-lifetime property in the heart of West Knoxville. The striking 8.85-acre estate with sweeping views was once part of Penrose Horse Farm and is surrounded by over 100 pristine pastoral acres protected by the Foothills Conservation Easement. The extensive gardens surrounding the home lend an idyllic atmosphere as you walk/drive up to the covered rocking chair front porch. Stepping through the charming double front doors instantly conjures feelings of warmth and intimacy, yet this custom designed Pennsylvania Farmhouse boasts plenty of space for everyone- with 5 spacious bedrooms & ensuite or private baths; you and your guests will believe you've landed reservations at an exclusive bed & breakfast! You'll notice the superbcraftsmanship and attention-to-detail from architect & builder Jim McDonough- such as gorgeous molding, varied-width plank hardwoods, custom cabinetry, built-in shelving and hidden drawers in every nook & cranny. Enjoy breathtaking vistas from every room, while you watch the horses saunter by as you drink iced tea on the covered sunporch, or sunbathe on the upper balcony that overlooks the pool and back yard. This home is perfect for enjoying dinner al fresco under the covered pavilion next to the grand outdoor fireplace or for hosting a large celebration event. But don't forget while you are relishing in your private slice of heaven that you are still in Knoxville, and shopping, schools, and work are just around the bend!
