From the beginning, Cherokee Shoals was designed to take advantage of the views and amenities of the Tennessee River. Longing for a place of escape, the owners desired a place of refuge from their typical routine. The beauty of the river combined with the privacy and peacefulness of this land, offers ideal conditions for a quiet hideaway from the hustle of everyday life. Contemporary elements of steel and glass create clean lines to add a modern flare to this 3,200 sqft home. The downstairs is comprised of mostly public space and follows the open floor concept with a large kitchen including an island, dining and living room, all positioned to the panoramic water views, butler’s pantry, mud room, powder room, and personal gym with attached bath. Guests can find accommodations in the additional 2 bedrooms/bath downstairs or in the custom designed sewing/arts & crafts room that offers additional sleeping quarters if necessary. The master suite is hidden away privately with abundant windows and doors that offer gorgeous views to the water and offers access to the patio. The large patio area containing an infinity pool becomes an extension of the home’s primary living spaces and can be easily accessed from the common areas and extends onto a wraparound viewing platform. This flow of indoor and outdoor space creates an entertainment setting that incorporates the best aspects of the site. The spacious screened porch and open-air areas also integrate outdoor lighting and lounge seating for watching beautiful sunsets.
