French Country Estate Perfect for Active Family 1

Gorgeous Wooded Setting at 1462 Rudder Lane

It’s a French country manor with an emphasis on fitness. With more than 9 acres of woods to hike through (or zip line through, if you’re in a hurry), an in-ground pool and a professional fitness room, you’re sure to stay in shape.

The beauty that sits on a circular driveway at 1462 Rudder Lane in West Knoxville is a specially designed 9,660-square-foot family home.

Joshua and Jessica Miller put a lot of thought into what they wanted for themselves and their children: a magnificent home with practical and luxurious considerations and room to play inside and out. They included a main-level master, a main-level guest room for older relatives, a large over-the-garage apartment, a 21-seat theater room, a fitness room, wine cellar, keeping room and breakfast room with stone fireplace. With those ideas in mind, local architect Jonathan Miller went to work, and builder Ed Rodriguez with Cornerstone Custom Homes brought their vision to life.

The home was built in 2013 and was also the Knoxville Symphony Show House that year. It’s easy to see why. Through the impressive front doors and past the large foyer, a grand piano sits like a black jewel in front of floor-to-ceiling windows. An audience of colorful autumn trees is gathered around, waiting in hushed anticipation.

The home and grounds are a symphony themselves, blending the staccato notes of children—the four custom-built white wooden bunk beds, the in-ground pool, the playroom—with the lower bass reverberations of the study, billiard room and high-ceilinged master suite.

A secret staircase leads from the master bedroom to the fitness room that boasts a rubberized floor, a variety of machines and weights, a TV and, of course, a breathtaking view of the woods.

Now the former Knoxville Symphony Show House is for sale, just waiting for the next perfect family. With seven bedrooms and 10 bathrooms, there’s plenty of room for everyone you love. The house is listed at $2,890,000.
