Property Description

Forever home is defined by the convenience of its location, a never ending style and the comfort of home inside and out. Surrounded by eight tree lined acres of natural privacy, priorities are quickly ordered. Located at the top of the W, convenience becomes one the many great gifts you capture at Altura. Time becomes yours, to preserve and to give your family as much of yours together, at home. Spectacularly framed is an artist's picture perfect park-like environment of historically mature, well maintained and manicured trees, shrubs and wildflowers thriving in a rich, cultivated and self-sustaining soil and landscape. The tone is quickly set at Alura's gated entrance of original stone columns and walls with stairs leading and thoughtful resting benches that lead to the main house reflecting the best elements of the past flawlessly blended with all the luxuries & technology of the present that will never feel stale. Masterfully designed and built as they once were, this Federalist Revival clearly replicates the detail and quality of construction from another time but clearly revitalized, upgraded and updated. The spacious main house offers all the rooms and mechanical systems affording all the efficiency of current modern day builds but better and unbelievably richer in character. No detail was spared from floor to ceiling with cabinetry craftsmanship by Anna Woodworks. The professionally designed kitchen is a true work of art but built for the real working chef and large enough to accommodate all the family cooks at the same time. Two solid walls of windows fill the kitchen with natural light while embraced by the green fields for play and trees outside the glass as if the outside has been invited in. Open shelving adds storage and style to this gorgeous working and food prep area. Four real fireplaces to include one in wine tasting, tea or coffee sipping room that doubles as crystal, china and beverage pantry as well as the perfect game room or spillover dining area that opens to all living areas. Heart pine floors, clapboard, shiplap and white-washed tongue & groove knotty pine walls, ceilings and details along with low country Carolina blue painted covered porches are found throughout the main house, guest house, studio and even the gazebo. The gazebo, built in the same quality as the houses, offers one of many desirable outdoor opportunities for gathering outdoors. Sparkling, salt water, heated, in-ground PebbleTech finished pool with 21X11 covered pavilion is completely and safely secured fencing for the little kiddos as well as a year-round outdoor recreational life or laps for daily workouts is promised without leaving home. The guest house (actually, the ENTIRE property) is distinctly reminiscent of Blackberry Farms. And in the tradition of Blackberry Farms, the guest house warmly welcomes those lucky enough to be its guests to an expansive Tennessee blue stone covered front porch that leads into a two-story seamless, open flow of efficiently used guest living space including kitchenette and full bath with heart pine floors with shiplap walls & ceilings and ship line balustrade to the sleeping quarters. Filled with natural light and embraced by the most spectacular views of lush surroundings from every window. The studio features three glass garage bays in addition to the three bay carport that could easily be enclosed with doors. The studio is a great option for a home office, conditioned workshop or rec space in addition to the lower level of the main house. Altura, much like its owner, offers a rare opportunity in home ownership for soul soothing, artful living. Home. There truly is no place like this one.
