Eagles’ Rest – Upscale, country living at its finest
Priced to sell. We have seen many beautiful and amazing estates being in the real estate industry. Yet, Eagle’s Rest in Franklin, TN still takes our breath away – a little piece of heaven. This luxury farm for sale is unsurpassed in the Southeast. The luxury that is found in every single corner and appointment on the property is exceptional.
Approaching the Georgian style home it is hard to decide what to focus on first, the actual home or the amenities that abound on the property.
The white home with black accents has stacked front porches and six grand columns. It feels like something out of a glamorous Hollywood movie. Inside you will certainly not be disappointed. Stepping into the marble foyer, one’s eye dances around the spectacular entry trying to take in the details. First the grand split staircase stands immediately in front of you with custom ironwork. Then above those are not one, but two Waterford chandeliers. Then looking a little deeper you will see the custom work in the detailed crown moldings, door casings, interior columns and wainscoting under the stairs. And you are only in the foyer.
These are not the last Waterford chandeliers you will encounter here either. The formal dining table is centered beneath one and is surrounded in even more luxurious appointments. The room has one of the homes nine fireplaces. A built-in butler’s pantry flanks the fireplace and detailed moldings and columns add to the grandeur.
The home has multiple seating areas for relaxing alone or entertaining guests. One such room has dark paneling floor to ceiling for a warm cozy feel while the other is painted in a cooler tone and the woodwork is showcased in a crisp white. Both rooms have French doors to access just a couple of the outside living areas.
The home office is also encompassed in dark wood and has a custom coffered ceiling. This room would be perfect for doing daily business or even a nice place to relax away from the hustle of a busy household.
The chef’s kitchen has multi-burner gas stove, double warming drawers and double ovens. The large center island allows plenty of prep space, as well as room for friends and family to chat while you prepare a meal. Or hire a caterer- they will most certainly enjoy this kitchen too!
If you haven’t decided this is a home fit for a king and queen yet, you simply must see the master suite. At 4,000 square feet the retreat is larger than many homes. The bedroom is of course large enough for king size furniture and a full sitting area. As you continue to explore the space you will realize there are his and hers bathrooms and dressing rooms. The dressing rooms have built-in dressers and cabinetry and plenty of storage space.
The home has five bedrooms total with an additional 2,000 square foot pool/guest house featuring a bedroom, full bath, kitchen and living area with pool access. A total of seven full baths and four half baths are in the home. Interior extras abound with an in-home cinema, wine cellar, and custom car showcase garage complete with checkerboard floor.
The 700 acre property has so much to offer on the outside too. The pool has a gazebo with hot tub at one end and a fountain situated on the other. The large stone deck surrounding the pool gives plenty of room for lounging in the sun or hosting an outdoor soiree. You could also host an event in the outdoor pavilion located on the property.
There is a 12 acre pond with launch dock and boat shed. Or what about going on a trail ride? If you don’t have horses now, you will want some once Eagle’s Rest is yours. The gorgeous eight stable horse barn is fit for prize-winning thoroughbreds.
Additional extras on the gated property are a cabin in a wooded area and climate controlled kennel for your pet. A security system is in place and the entire home is heated by geothermal energy.
Upscale, country living at its finest, this estate offers privacy and world class amenities while being located in the wonderful town of Franklin.
