Barndominiums

Part Barn & Part Condo – Meet the Barndominium

At Alliance Sotheby’s International Realty, we have pretty much seen it all when it comes to homes and the various lifestyles they provide. From quaint cottages to luxury lakefront living, there is a home to suit each and everyone’s preference. On a rare (unicorn sighting rare) occasion we get a home offering a lifestyle that we didn’t even know existed.

The Barndominium! This new type of home is part barn and part condo and originated from the mid-west. Usually located on large parcels of land, the barndominium takes the original design of a barn/storage building constructed out of metal then repurposes and redesigns the structure where owners can live and work while using the same structure as storage for large recreation vehicles like campers and boats.

Don’t let the outside deceive you. The barndominium is usually constructed out of high end materials with amenities galore! Gourmet kitchens, elevators, media rooms and game rooms are the norm. Barndominium interest has sprouted YouTube channels, Pintrest pages and more! Look and see what the buzz is all about!

 

          

Space for gathering, cooking and entertaining offers ample light and space to host gatherings both large and small.

 

Entertain all your fun-seekers both young and old by using your space for pool tables, pinball machines and theater seating!

                

Interior storage for all kinds of vehicles!

          

Separate living space can be used for a work shops, guest apartment or living quarters for property caretakers!

 

Truly a unique property offering an unique life-style! For more information or details, please click on any photo or call Sandy Poe at 865.207.0004

Homewood House | An Inspiration

Classic Elegance and Rich History

Nestled into the rolling hills of East Tennessee on 90 acres is a home inspired by Homewood House.  Homewood House is a living museum located in Baltimore, Maryland and was originally built by Charles Carroll. Charles was the oldest living signer of the Declaration of Independence and he built Homewood House as a wedding gift for his son.

 

 

Throughout the home are pieces of history that cannot be repeated nor duplicated. The four large columns at the entrance of the home are made of solid heart pine and were originally part of the Christenberry School.

 

 

The informal living space and kitchen are open and spacious. Repurposed features such as the heartpine flooring from Flat Gap Baptist Church coupled with thoughtful and elegant details help create a space that is both luxurious and welcoming.

 

 

The master suite provides a moment of reprieve with a sitting area for a more private moment and a bath that is luxurious and refined.

 

 

Beautiful gardens, terraces and water features enhance all of the natural beauty of the surrounding East Tennessee hills.

 

 

From the hand folded copper cupola from the Christenberry School to the dining room wainscoting from the Park Hotel, Homewood Farm has united the elements of the past with the comforts of today and created a home that is spectacular in both design and detail.
