Before they wander off to one of two upstairs bunk rooms to tell stories long into the night, they’ll be on the back patio roasting s’mores at the firepit and making waves in the hot tub. All while forgetting (temporarily, of course) about the gravitational pull of small screens and high tech. Such is a likely scenario for this family-friendly, 3,857-square-foot Martis Camp home near the Springs Pavilion and the Tennis Pavilion. It’s kind on the eyes as well, as is instantly obvious when you step beyond the front door to a great room with handsome vaulted ceilings, a fireplace, and the nearby patio that’s locked in a stare down with Lookout Mountain. The dining room shares that same view and nearby is a kitchen with a pleasant nook, pantry, and an immense island that calls out for coffee, conversation, and pancakes for all. Down one hall is an office and then beyond that is a primary bedroom with peaked ceilings, fireplace, sitting area, and views towards the Carson Range. Another wing houses a guest suite and a bedroom with mountain views, while upstairs leads to a media room and two bunk rooms that form the control center of childhood imaginations. The escape hatch for this 4-bed, 4.5-bath home is a patio with firepit, hot tub, covered/heated dining area, a barbecue bay, and delicious views.
Details within are immaculate. The cabinets, doors and trim are alder while the towering ceilings are honed from cedar. Floors are hickory and the kitchen countertops are granite. The Wolf range includes a custom hood while the refrigerator and wine cooler are Sub-Zero and the dishwasher Bosch. The stories to be told and memories to be formed are all original and unforgettable.
