Own a piece of history! Knoxville’s famed architect Bruce McCarty’s personal mid-century modern home is available for the first time since it was built in 1959. This iconic 3 bed/ 2.5 bath home is located on 3.1 acres in West Knoxville with 150 feet of river frontage, and provides the quintessential McCarty style with practical engineering in the form of a T-like grid floor-plan, floor to ceiling windows, custom built-ins and period style flooring throughout it’s 3,150 square feet of indoor living space.

The flow from public to private begins with cathedral ceilings, parquet flooring, custom seating and custom cabinetry as well as floor to ceiling windows in the living area truly bringing the “outdoor feel” into the home. Brick tile flooring and a wood burning fireplace add intimacy t the adjacent inglenook, with sliding door access to outside entertainment areas, where one can enjoy 150 ft of river frontage. This same view can be enjoyed from your kitchen sink, where cork flooring, known for being a natural thermal and acoustic insulator, and rattan cabinets that open to the brick structure barrier wall can be found capturing the historic feel of the home in it's original pristine condition.

A dual purpose office or play room with the same popular cork flooring provides ample storage and privacy while a more centrally located office space allows easy access to the beautiful surroundings.

Three bedrooms and 2 baths on the upper level two finish the transition from public to private bestowing personal space for rest and relaxation. The first bedroom, complete with a wall partition and two sky lights would be ideal for a sitting area inside a bedroom or a small study, while the second bedroom offers the same breathtaking views that can be found in other areas of the home. Lastly, the master bedroom not only showcases incredible views of the Tennessee River, but also includes a private deck perfect for watching the sunrise or enjoying a cup of tea or coffee.

A working well, supply shed, exterior storage barn and access to the Tennessee River are among the wondrous amenities included in this location, as well as rows of Lenten roses and Virgina Bluebells, creating just as much enjoyment outside as inside.
