Look at this oasis of fabulousness right in the heart of East Memphis. The back of the house is mostly glass allowing you to feel one with nature while inside. All the lovely trees, zen gardens, decks, and pool, make for one of a kind outdoor living!
The house has a very open concept as you can see with the living and dining rooms. You'll enjoy the floor to ceiling glass on either side bringing nature in. The perfect rooms to entertain and relax in.
Another view of the living and dining areas. The original tile floor is indestructible and perfect for children and dogs! There is a custom designed deck just off the living room that amazes.
Standing from most anywhere in the living area you can see the foyer, kitchen, living room, dining room, and den. This open living concept was designed decades before it was fashionable. Look at all of the angles, beams, and unique clerestory windows.
Designed by architect Rick Gardner, the updated custom kitchen has hand made cabinets out of solid maple, upscale appliances, and a custom designed island. The door behind the kitchen leads to the laundry room. So much detail here you have to see.
Look at that built in GE Monogram refrigerator with custom wood panels! The dishwasher is Bosch, and the cooktop and oven are Jenn Air. A well designed Kitchen triangle with so much counter space and so much room to entertain in!
Another view of how open the kitchen is to the living room, dining room, and den! The unique granite top on the island was hand selected and the island was build around it.
The den is truly unique and light filled. The vaulted ceiling and clerestory windows make you feel like you are one with nature. Light fills this room and changes character throughout the day. The "Mad Men" fireplace is way fab!
Another view of the fabulous den. Imagine relaxing here at the end of the day or entertaining! Truly stunning and special!
Check out this custom designed deck made out of Brazilian IPE, which is one of the hardest natural woods on the planet. Flanking each end of the deck is a sunburst design carved out of plywood. So special to have drinks, coffee, and/or conversation!
The original primary bedroom suite is now used as an office. There is a large walk in closet to the left and a lovely bathroom. Could easily be a guest room or primary suite. There are some lovely built-in shelves as well in here. Great light in here!!
This full bath is on the main level. The vanity was custom designed out of maple, and it has a Toto sink and high end faucet. It also has a very cool custom built mirror assembly. The custom designer shade is from Hunter Douglas.
It feels like you are in a treehouse when you are relaxing in the large primary suite. Both sides have floor to ceiling windows overlooking the trees. At peace is how you will feel every night before bed!
Another view of the primary shows the view of the deck and pool. There is also a sitting area where a lovely entertainment center was built in. Through the door is the large walk in closet and bathroom. Current owners use this as their primary wing.
The 5th bedroom was converted to a fabulous walk in closet. How wonderful and rare is this in East Memphis! These could easily go back to being a bedroom, or you could use this as a nursery off the primary.
The primary bath has a custom designed raised vanity out of maple, select granite, high end sink/faucet, lovely tile, and a deep whirlpool tub. All the bathrooms have been updated in a way so as to look period with the house but still be current.
This downstairs bedroom is ample and light filled. It even has a separate entrance and stairs leading up to the front porch. Again, so much wonderful light and details!
This fresh and crisp bathroom services the 2 downstairs bedrooms. The designer custom shade is Hunter Douglas. There is an ample shower in here as well.
One of the downstairs bedrooms is currently being used as a gym. Easy to convert right back to a bedroom. The lighting is great in this room, and the custom Hunter Douglas shade is blackout.
Imagine your guests entering into this foyer. All of the beams, glass, and angular details make this house one of a kind. There is great light and perfect wall spaces to show off all of your wonderful art and treasures throughout this house.
Years of design and landscaping went into making the backyard truly special. The gardens, materials, stone, surfaces, levels, decks, screens, and patios all follow the Japanese Zen style of design and living. A truly relaxing experience both day & night.
The pool was designed to look period to the house. It was positioned in a spot to catch the sun from late morning until later afternoon. The pool heater, motor, custom cover and filter are newer. Comes with a fancy pool cleaning Nautilus robot as well.
Look at the fun angles and unique Mid Century Modern design of this house. All designed to fit on this rolling half acre plus lot. There are 2 covered parking spaces and a parking pad for 2 more spaces. The driveway was repaved around 5 years ago.
The stone front patio and pergola were added to give the modern house the feeling of having a traditional Southern porch. The entrance stairs and landing are constructed from Brazilian IPA, one of the strongest woods on the planet. Love the orange doors!
Look how stately this over half an acre property is from the street. Both the front and back have a time saving irrigation system that waters most every inch of the property. It also feels very private. Palm Spring meets Memphis!
