Home Descriptions

Tanasi Neighborhood

This residence in the Tanasi neighborhood of Tellico Village welcomes you to a lovingly designed retirement home featuring one-floor living. Representing easy living at its best, the home has open spaces with function defined by clever furniture placement, colors, and architectural elements (like the coffered ceiling in the great room). The leathered quartz kitchen counters and wine bar are simply gorgeous and compliment the strategic placement of delicate and intricate works of art — glass, wood, oil, watercolor, iron, and textiles – all pieces that are simply enchanting. The soft color palette used throughout the home highlights the pops of color and touches of natural wood elements, reflecting the homeowner’s wonderful collection of art. The glass art will take your breath away!  And you will enjoy several pieces attributed to the owners — like the mountain mural in the party garage! Thoughtfully planned details such as the custom cabinetry and solid surface shower in the master bath make the home wonderfully accommodating — no scrubbing grout!  The oversized laundry provides great storage space and the children’s art wall is crafty and efficient. Adjacent to the master suite is a bright sunroom with views of the lake and mountains.  Lots of ideas for making your home more “you” and more comfortable will be discovered here!
