Built in 1965
A home that tells a story...Originally built for Dr. Travis E Morgan in 1965 this one of a kind home captures the essence of mid-century modern style but forsakes none of the desires of the high-end home buyer in today's market. Top of the line in 1965, the original charm and character of this home remains in tact and in amazing condition.Pull into the circle drive and under the covered porte cochere, beautifully designed with stone and stained wood details.Step inside to vaulted ceilings and an abundance of glass that draws you to the covered back deck overlooking the large, level & private 1.18 acre lot. As the story goes, the cantilever deck's design was brought forth by the same engineer that designed much of Interstate I-40.Sure to be a fan favorite as you host your first get-together, will be the original, custom, pop up bar in the primary living space, along with the first of three wood burning fireplaces.From there, step down into your sunken living room (a staple of mid-century modern style) and enjoy the 2nd wood-burning fireplace. The primary suite, located on the main level, offers an attached office/study or the perfect bourbon/cigar room. The wood lined walls exude class and sophistication. The primary en suite bath features original ''Alabama white marble'' that is stunningly beautiful and much of the original paperwork from this purchase and other home building choices plus the original house plans, have been maintained by the Sellers. Two additional bedrooms and an additional full and half bath also reside on the main level.In the kitchen, you will find multiple pantries, ample storage, a gas range, original built in fridge and the stand out feature here are the beautiful corner windows in the breakfast nook, again blurring the lines between indoor/outdoor living.The formal dining room, located across from the kitchen, provides a very generous space for hosting all your friends and family for special holiday meals or casual get togethers. Make sure to notice the original pocket doors as you enter!Making your way to the basement, check out the staircase wrapped in glass which dampens the noise but also provides a very seamless and stylish feel. The floating staircase is an unbelievably cool touch as well. Notice the (real) snake plants that reside underneath amongst a pile of dark gray Mexican beach pebbles. A total James Bond vibe.In the main area of the basement, you are in awe of the stunning 3 sided stone fireplace. The terrazzo floors are the perfect addition to this area as well. The basement also offers a full kitchen and wrap around bar area. Continue around the corner and you will find the arcade room, a Dolly Parton themed laundry, a gym, a movie room and an additional bedroom as well! Let's not forget about the glass windows and doors that look out again at the large, private and level backyard. With so much to LOVE and enjoy in this truly one of a kind home. Don't miss this rare opportunity to own such a unique Knoxville home!
