Designed by the renowned architect Bruce McCarty for the 1955 Parade of Homes, this iconic ''concrete home'' was the first residential dwelling in Knoxville made entirely of concrete. Brilliant design & craftsmanship created a roof structure, bents and walls composed entirely of concrete; ingenuity of design gives one the incredible feeling of lightness provided by large windows that span the entire home on both sides. Upon entering one experiences a central fireplace as the heart of the home; the kitchen, living and dining areas define ''open concept''. High-end Miele/Bosch appliances, expansive counter space, gas range cooktop & abundant storage makes this the kitchen for an avid cook. A new wood panel accent wall in the living space creates the perfect foil to the exposed concrete ceilings and the recently refinished terrazzo floors in the main living space. The spacious Master bedroom features a large walk-in closet, with a newly installed closet system, and laundry area within the master closet. The main house boasts a spa-like bathroom with heated tile floors, floating double vanity, heated towel bar, soaking tub & walk-in steam shower. The additional bedroom was designed as a small suite separate from the main living area with a private bath & view of the meticulously landscaped rear yard. The shower has been fully redesigned with beautiful glass tile similar to that in the main house and a custom glass door. As intended by the architect, this home is meant to envelope you in nature, blurring the distinction between outside and inside. Surrounded by lush plantings, a modern waterfall feature ending in a small pond, an in-ground saltwater pool & a covered seating area with extended patio space, this yard is the perfect ''escape'' from the day to day. Especially designed for the gardener, there is a small potager area, sitting area & a greenhouse where one's dreams can grow. Pre-approval or proof of funds required prior to showing.
