Waterfront home offers large lot, character

Waterfront home offers large lot, character

This Native Trail estate on 400 feet of year-round water in Soddy-Daisy will stun the most discriminating homebuyer with its "unbelieveable character," says listing agent Linda Brock of Prudential Realty Center.

"There is nothing like it," Brock said. "It really is exceptional." "The current owners have blended the very best of creating an incredibly beautiful estate that feels like the most comfortable, cozy home to raise a family," Brock said. "That is a very difficult task to pull off - a beautiful home that feels like a place you can put your feet up and eat popcorn in any room."Though the home was built as a day's-end retreat for a busy family with three children, Brock said empty-nesters could easily live on the main level and save the rest for family- or friend-filled weekends, and boaters and second homeowners will enjoy the water and views, too.

The thoughtful floor plan features ceilings 10 feet and higher arranged in cathedral, vaulted and barrel shapes that only magnify the abundant natural light.

The artisan quality of every finish reaches to the knotty alder wood doors, trim and window casings throughout the main level. The floors of walnut and reclaimed barn wood and furniture-quality cabinetry by Plato Woodwork are featured throughout the home, which incorporates cherry, walnut and painted pieces.

All bathrooms are a combination of honed marble, limestone, travertine and glass tiles.

The kitchen features a solid walnut island countertop, hammered copper farmhouse sink, Wolf 60-inch gas freestanding stove, two Miele dishwashers and a double Sub-Zero refrigerator with cabinet panels.

Breeze from the open kitchen to the family room to the outdoor living room with stone fireplace overlooking the water, then stroll along the home's 1,400 square feet of covered brick and stone porches surrounding the house.
