A large pool is the jewel of the backyard, surrounded by tall trees and a wide patio. On summer evenings, set out a feast on the crowd-sized rustic dining table in the garden. String lights twinkle like fireflies overhead.

Gravel and brick are used to create an enchanting pattern in the patio next to the pool. A low wall is the border between the two outdoor areas, and a fire pit makes for cozy, after-swim hangs.

The home is located in Knoxville and is a stunning Southern charmer on the national historic registry. With a masterful blend of historic elegance and modern luxury, this property, which offers five gorgeous bedrooms and four fully modernized baths, is spacious enough to accommodate large families and guests. Part of the curb appeal comes from the lushly wooded two-acre lot the home is nestled upon. An oversized pool is adjacent, perfect for cooling off on hot summer days or just lounging in the evenings.

stable bar
One of the most fun details in the charming backyard? The stable that's been converted into a bar. Pour up a drink, then head over to the fire pit where there's plenty of room for the whole party.

dining room
The large formal dining room walks a nice line between being welcoming and elegant, but not at all stuffy. A long table comfortably seats eight, with two small round tables at the ready for larger parties.

There are wonderful fireplaces throughout the home, in the bedrooms, the bathroom and here in the kitchen. Pot racks and open shelves are a fun frame atop the fireplace.

Beyond the pool is a stable which has been thoughtfully converted into a dry bar, adding even more charm and appeal to the grounds.

“This property’s reinvented luxury amenities coupled with its history create a one-of-a-kind opportunity,” Wilson said. “It was even granted approval as a historic bed and breakfast, so this multi-use property has untapped revenue potential.”
