We are pleased to announce we are building a 2021 Southern Living Showcase Home in Knoxville, Tennessee that will be open to the public for tours this fall.
Our 2021 Southern Living Showcase Home will be located in the Northshore Town Center in Knoxville, Tennessee.
The home will encompass two lots in the Northshore Town Center with a focus on outdoor and multi-generational living. The home exterior will exhibit Craftsman influences. The main floor will feature an open floor plan with a working pantry. The primary bedroom will be on the main floor with three additional bedrooms upstairs and a bonus/playroom in the basement.
A three-car detached garage will be connected to the house via a breezeway. A large back porch along with a patio and outdoor kitchen will provide ample space to enjoy nature in the back yard. The garden will consist of raised beds in the back yard, where the children will enjoy a treehouse and ropes course. Other outdoor features are a fenced-in dog area and side yard. The guest quarters will consist of a living area, bedroom and bath, a children’s loft, and a back porch.
In the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, nestled among the trees, you’ll find The Neighborhood at the Northshore Town Center – and a lifestyle not commonly found in East Tennessee. We designed the Town Center, now in its third and final phase, with a hometown feel in mind, intentionally focusing on neighbors, front porches, and sidewalks to encourage a sense of community among residents.
Homes focus on detail in craftsmanship, quality and durability, outdoor living and building a sense of community. Most of the homes are rear-access, placing driveways, garages, vehicles, and trash bins in the back of the homes along quiet streets hidden from view. Homes have prominent front porches that seem to sprawl right out onto the sidewalks, encouraging neighbors to socialize.
In the evenings, residents pour out of their homes, children and pets in tow, to enjoy each other’s company on sidewalks or in our community gathering spots to get fresh air while being active.
A pleasant walk, bike ride or golf cart trip down a tree lined path will lead you to a locally- owned grill on the corner. If you opt for a more casual atmosphere, you can also choose the local Mexican restaurant or craft beer market where you can also enjoy live entertainment on the weekends. The community also includes walkable access to national-chain grocery stores and an elementary school.
