Presenting ”Magnolia Bluff” an exquisite French Country manor home set on an arboretum-like acre in Sequoyah Hills, one of Knoxville’s most desirable neighborhoods. In the late 2000’s a full renovation of the home, originally built in 1930, was undertaken by master contractors Gerald and Matt Jenkins with architect Brian Pittman. Thoughtfully enhanced and meticulously preserved, exuding an old-world sensibility with a fresh edge of sophistication and comfort, Magnolia Bluff defines ”extraordinary.” Arriving at the front of the home you begin to experience the grace, symmetry and sophistication of the architectural details–slate roof, copper gutters, leaded diamond glass windows, elegant dormers, French doors, Juliet balcony, and classically paneled front door warmed by a gas lantern. Stepping into the foyer, the same exceptional qualities of the exterior are immediately echoed in the interior features — pristine wainscoting, detailed cornice and wide baseboards, custom stained 8″ wide white oak plank flooring, custom iron French doors, 9′ ceilings, six fireplaces – most with limestone surround, marble countertops, custom cabinets — you’ll know you’re somewhere very special. Luxurious in comfort and design, the interior rooms and levels flow seamlessly throughout the home, consistently drawing the eye from indoor to outdoor. While the formal living and dining room, gourmet kitchen and gathering room, state of the art media and adjoining game room — as well as the veranda, heated salt-water gunite pool, bocce ball court and magnificent garden spaces — offer boundless opportunity for grand entertaining, they are scaled for intimate gatherings as well. A gracious master suite wing, a second master and two bedrooms up, plus two additional guest bedrooms provide abundant accommodations for family and friends. With an artful balance between formal and informal elegance, the home is infused with an incomparable warmth and welcome making this a spectacular home you may never want to leave.
