You’ll find that the kids who come to play here or stay here walk around in a pleasant state of detachment. Not from one another, but from all things techno. Fact is, videos and emojis and games that go beep in the dark are no match for all that surrounds this home — the creek that’s just steps away, the grass field below the Springs Park just a few feet further, or the magical tree fort at the top of the hill. Kids and parents alike are drawn to an environment that suggests reality is often superior to virtual reality. Even the Tennis Pavilion is close by, just a short stroll across the park from home, and views from the media room take in Lookout Mountain and Springs Park. The interior of this 5-bedroom, 5.5 bath home stirs the imagination as well, with a great room whose pocket doors disappear, leaving no barrier between the indoors and outdoors. The kitchen, great room and dining room all face the patio, creek and park. That expansive patio features a firepit, covered dining and barbecue area, and an elevated deck with hot tub.
The lull of the creek that stretches the length of the back property goes a long way toward enhancing the peace of the suites that bookend both ends of the house. This 4,370-square-foot home’s primary bedroom has direct access to the hot tub, deck, patio and park while — on the other side of the home — the junior suite has views of the grassy park and its own patio. At the base of the stairs are two bedrooms while the upstairs level features a bunk room that sleeps up to eight and a media room whose big screen tv and massive deck await those moments when the kids have finally had their fill of outdoor goodness.
