Timber frame homes are well-known for being of top quality, increasing your home’s worth not only in value, but also sale-ability. But what more could a wooden home enthusiast ask for than a quaint timber structure coupled with a log-sided exterior? This wonderful Tennessee home offers just that…
This spectacular private property on its large gated acreage may just have 1,200 square feet of living space, but it is a great family home all the same. Built in 2008, this rustic log-sided cabin features 3 bedrooms, one-and-one-half bathrooms and a wonderful open living, dining room and kitchen downstairs. Let’s take a closer look…
Surrounded by natural springs, woodland and wildlife, this characteristic timber home has a beautiful, classic, symmetrical structure. Large windows line the side of the home along the raised outdoor decking, and the huge cathedral-style window at the front has incredible views of the lush countryside.
The open-plan living, dining and kitchen area on the ground floor is spacious yet peaceful at the same time. In the living room, a beautiful light wooden staircase leads to the upper floor with an incredible overhead balcony to the space below. It is decorated in comfortable, autumn-colored furnishings, which look lovely against the pine hardwood floors.
An element of separation between the living and dining room area of the ground floor is effectively created by well-placed furniture and thick-pile rugs to provide warmth. A matching light-wood table for six fits easily into this sizeable room.
The heart of a home – this well-equipped, beamed kitchen boasts an abundance of storage space and all modern appliances, such as a large fridge/freezer, cooker, and microwave. The kitchen island provides extra preparation space for those important nights you are entertaining.
Two of the three bedrooms are on the ground floor of this quaint timber home, both of which have ample space for a good-sized double bed. The same classic square windows – a feature of this home – have views of the surrounding countryside; a wonderful sight to wake up to in the morning.
The final bedroom can be found within the beams of the spectacular triangular roof. This upper loft space covers the whole area of the ground floor, providing an enormous space with rooms for at least two extra double beds. Even then, both sides of the loft appear private despite the open plan.
The main bathroom in this wonderful home features a large walk-in shower and extra storage space within the sink unit. The decoration throughout the house is quite uniform in order to match the tradition wood finish of the floors, ceilings, and walls.
Although this timber log home does not have an outdoor porch, the grounds around the house are so plentiful that there is lots of space for children to play. You could even set up a table and chairs in the garden if you wanted to eat outdoors during the warmer months.
