The word spectacular doesn’t even begin to adequately describe this Oak Hill treasure. Situated on 7 acres on the corner of Franklin Pike and Harding Place and encompassing more than 12,500 square feet across multiple structures, this property is a spectacle to behold, without feeling ostentatious or over-the-top.

Designed by Blaine Bonadies and built by Brady Fry in 2014, the home feels approachable and cozy, despite its grand size, and it utilizes the expansive property well. The modern construction works in tandem with the natural surroundings to create a contemporary refuge where the beauty of the outdoors takes center stage. This is evident from the moment you step inside the front door and are immediately greeted with a view of the inner courtyard. The views continue through the entire house, built in such a way that nearly every room overlooks the courtyard, the pool area or the yard. 

The master suite — which boasts customized, glammed-out his-and-hers closets and a magnificent bathroom with soaking tub and marble shower — is located on the main floor and opens to a private screened-in porch. The home’s second story is divided into two wings: the children’s wing, which has three bedroom suites and a bonus playroom, and the guest wing, which offers privacy from the rest of the home for its two bedroom suites and office. Rounding out the spectacular spaces in this home are a glass-lined personal gym over the garage and a basement massage room, with its own sauna and relaxation room. The basement also boasts a home theater and a fully secure bunker with pecky cypress paneling, two queen-size bunk beds and a 3-inch steel door. 

A 1,500-square-foot two-bedroom guest cottage, designed to mirror the main house, sits on the back of the property. Surrounding the resort-worthy pool is a pool house — with a kitchenette and bathroom — and a game room cabana. A drop-down projector in the cabana allows for “dive-in movies” in the pool. 

The central location makes this home convenient to the city’s best dining, cultural and nightlife offerings, but with amenities worthy of a five-star retreat, you may never want to leave.
