You Don't Have to Be Royalty to Live in This Southern Castle
We're getting major Monticello vibes from this breathtaking Southern abode. Built in 1998, the mansion is 23,084 square feet of absolute luxury. The home has 7 bedrooms, 8 full bathrooms, and 6 half bathrooms across the main house and pool house. The exterior is crafted with solid Indiana limestone, including windows, door surrounds, balustrades, patio, and terrace floors. Inside, you'll find a dance studio, indoor spa, walnut walls, priceless art from around the world, silk wall coverings, and lots of marble. The house is listed on Realtor.com for $8.9 million dollars. When can we move in?
Welcome to 801 Mooreland Lane
Not sold yet? Take your time. The estate has been listed for a few years now. It seems the phrase "motivated sellers" does not apply to this particular listing.
The Impressive Entry
Stun guests with this gorgeous marble floor and dentil molding. Can you imagine making your grand entrance down this elegant spiral staircase with custom wrought iron details and polished wooden bannister?
The Granite Kitchen
We can only imagine hosting a dinner party with this kitchen as our sous chef. The updated space has granite countertops and accents, wooden cabinets, Miele appliances, and a functional (yet stylish) vent hood.
Imagine the Christmas tree of your dreams fitting perfectly under the 46-foot ceilings of this solarium. The floor is made of white pencil-thin marble accented with black onyx, and the marble medallion in the room's center was made by local artists in Venice, Italy. Step through walnut doors flanked by Venetian gilt and marble urn pedestals, and sit awhile under the Baccarat Louis XVI chandelier. A casual Saturday afternoon, if you will.
We could easily spend an afternoon (or six) flipping through books in this rich walnut room. The library has hardwood floors, a French Louis XV marble mantel, an Alabaster chandelier, a coffered ceiling, and walnut paneling and shelving.
The Indoor Pool
Up for a dip? The indoor swimming pool is accented with plenty of natural light from the numerous surrounding windows. The area has tile trim and limestone decking.
The Stately Exterior
Topiaries, fountains, brick, and a Celadon tile roof with copper dome makes a stunning first impression.
The kids would have an absolute field day on this basketball court. The indoor gymnasium features a shock-absorbing floating floor, adjustable baskets, digital scoreboards, a projector and screen, and even lockers for when you're hosting the whole team on the weekend.
The Bowling Alley
We've heard myths of homes with bowling alleys, but this Murfreesboro estate actually has a spot where you can work on throwing strikes – with full automatic return.
Step out onto the limestone terrace for awe-inspiring views of Overall Creek and the rolling Tennessee hills. We'd like to host an al fresco dinner on this patio, please!
The Outdoor Oasis
If you're not up for an indoor swim, this outdoor in-ground saltwater pool is the perfect spot to sip a margarita. The pool has a rainfall and water features, luminaire lighting, a bridge, a waterslide, and a nearby hot tub.
The Inviting Courtyard
Welcome to a courtyard fit for Queen Elizabeth II, complete with dramatic sculptures. This charming garden area is the perfect place to spend an outdoor cocktail hour.
The Lush Property
Is anyone else dying to dip their toes in this refreshing oasis? The property has 29 gorgeous, park-like acres with a waterfall and creek – like any good Tennessee home should.
