The work of a true visual artist is meant to activate the emotions of those experiencing their art. Whether the artist wishes to provide the user with a sense of curiosity, concern or comfort is up to the artist. Beginning in the 18th century, the Neoclassical movement combined architectural elements from the past Italian styles, combined with the desire to bring simplicity and order during the Age of Enlightenment. Painting, sculpture, and architecture were the ways in which Neoclassicism was most obviously presented, and such an expression exists among the natural rolling hills and placid lakes of east Tennessee. Presented here is a private estate surrounded on three sides by Fort Loudoun Lake in Taylor's Pointe. Although harkening back to the 1700's the featured Custom Architectural Estate was designed in 2003, with final phases completed in 2010 and contains all the 21st century comforts one would expect in a 12,500 square foot custom home such as this. Greeting its owner upon entering the gated, precisely laid paver drive is a lavish, manicured garden punctuated by a French-inspired fountain. And the entrance of the home is a precursor to the quality to be expected within, with its hand-carved, solid marble columns of the sheltered portico. The landscaping complements the color palette of the home, especially at night, when the lighting highlights both nature and structure. But the artist is just beginning the masterpiece. When the main entrance doors swing open, a magnificent, two-story foyer with custom glass, a winding iron staircase, and an open view of the lake beyond is revealed. A touch of color and softness is added by the silk wall coverings and the custom wool carpets by Lacey Champion, that perfectly draw your eye to the marble and solid Brazilian cherry wood floors. Drawing the eye up the canvas, you'll appreciate the Sherle Wagner marble and gold fixtures and the detail of the custom millwork. The area is illuminated with state-of-the-art Lutron lighting controls, and of course, automated shades make creating the perfect, natural light as simple as pushing a button. And as one would expect in Neoclassical tradition, coffered ceilings allow for a special artistic depth in the foyer. But as you continue into the dining hall, keep your gaze raised in anticipation of the gold leaf ceiling, surrounded by padded silk walls, lending itself to a room ready for conversation. There is also art in the preparation of the meal to be served, and the chef's canvas is a 2-person kitchen of lacquer-finished burled wood, granite, and cherry cabinetry with a crystal finish. All artists need a place to keep their tools, and this kitchen has multiple pantries including a separate Butler's pantry, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, and hidden storage throughout. The stately office boasts wood covered walls and ceilings but is designed specifically to let the natural light brighten the room. Custom cabinetry completes the area, creating an atmosphere where the work of the day can be completed in fine style. The balconies of the home are copper-lined and are accessible via a marble banister circular stairway that winds between the home's levels. Sometimes, the artist wishes to step back from creating and recharge. That is the purpose of the open, relaxed keeping area. The art of fine audio is appreciated with a surround sound system with a backdrop of the pool and lake, and refreshments are easy to prepare with a wet bar and wine chiller. In the right wing of the home there is a rec room for games, exercise, or enjoy the sauna after a dip in the pool. The aluminum sunroom provides weather-resistance and pool access. And when it's time to retire for the day, the main-level primary bedroom has a gallery view of the water with direct access to the pool. There is plenty of storage and a gas fireplace adds ambiance to the room. Travel to the primary bath to experience a touch of gold and crystal in the elegant, custom fixtures. But stay in this area to experience the art of true relaxation in the therapeutic jet tub and a 2-person shower. Soak in the warmth of the heated floors and heat lamp lighting. The bespoke brush strokes continue to define this estate with three private suites upstairs, each with a balcony to enjoy nature's watercolors over the lake and pool and an individual thermostat for comfort. As was Roman tradition, bath houses were provided for private villas, and each guest suite has its own therapeutic bath. The upstairs can be accessed by ADA compliant elevator. This estate boasts a feature not found anywhere else in the state of Tennessee. The one-of-a-kind radius staircase with a hand carved, curved marble handrail and balustrades, is a bold design element, wrapping around the home from the main level to the grounds toward the lake. Another unique feature is the geothermal heating system, with more than 100 pump wells. The Neoclassical symmetry continues to provide calming surroundings in the Cabana, a separate 3,200 square foot structure from the main home built in 2014. This portion of the property has bold strokes, with the materials for this work of art including poured concrete and steel to withstand the winds that push across the peninsula. There are two additional suites in this space, each with a private balcony, and accessible via an ADA compliant elevator. With food as an expected art form, the Cabana kitchen boasts Law Hicks Millwork, beautiful translucent lighting, and in a tradition made famous by Michelangelo, the ceiling itself provides those in this space with art. NanaWall Glass sliding doors allow the entire Cabana to be opened to the pool for seamless access. The living areas are only part of the picture that composes this property. Those elements come into focus when stepping outside and experiencing the incredible view of the lake on three sides of this estate with a total of 1,000 feet of shoreline. The shoreline of the estate is protected by a 30-foot waterwall that surrounds the entire shoreline. The combination of nature and carefully crafted elements make the lakeside of the home a place where the owner will surely spend a lot of time experiencing nature's art. The artist has, once again, thought of it all and placed it in fine order. Outside there is a kitchen with Kalamazoo stainless steel appliances. The air is stirred by Haiku ceiling fans. Many artists are renowned for their images of boats and water, and this home has a picturesque boat house at the end of a winding path to the lake's edge. One lift can manage two jet skis, and the boat lift accommodates a 12-ton watercraft. 15,000 square feet of the outdoor area is under roof, to enable the enjoyment of this space when the yellow sun is hot in the sky, or when the day may contain a more subtle, gray hue. The size of the canvas is 3.6 acres in total and the property faces southwest, providing the artist's signature in the form of phenomenal sunset evenings.

Virtual Tour
This home can be your private residence or investment property. Investors take note: Venture Resorts guarantees a minimum of $400,000 in rental income for the first year. Music is called the universal language, understood by all who experience it. And while a single line of music can be played by any musician regardless of their native spoken language, it can be interpreted and performed in thousands of ways. Songs can evoke strong emotions, they can provide inspiration and comfort, and bring joy, excitement, peace and wonder to those who experience it. Welcome to 3035 Smoky Bluff Trail, a true symphonic masterpiece. The rolling summit of Mount LeConte, one of the highest peaks in the Great Smoky Mountains provides the background rhythm, seen rising and falling from every room at the back of this home as the sun breaks the horizon. This natural masterpiece is the perfect inspiration for the musician choosing to create their own compositions in the expansive recording studio, tucked away in the lower level of the home. This 1,500 sq. ft. heated and cooled space is surrounded by Acoustiblok and Safe & Sound walls and floating floors and comes complete with a separated control room and a private studio entrance. On the main level of the home, the symphony continues, with a soaring 37-foot ceiling in the great room, with a floor-to-ceiling stacked stone fireplace, complemented by a stone archway, giving the room a solid, grand introduction. The primary suite has a fireplace of its own, and a private bath, allowing the owner to unwind in a true spa setting in a wet steam shower with a Bluetooth surround system, and a dry sauna. In harmony with the great room is the expansive kitchen with the finest of instruments ready to be played. From the well-scaled appliances like double ovens, a 6-burner Wolf gas range and a commercial-grade refrigerator and freezer to the smooth, custom soft-close cabinetry, granite countertops and walk-in pantry, this kitchen is ready for an audience. And the entertainment can continue outdoors in the fresh-air kitchen, complete with a wine cooler on the covered patio, where you'll find the third stone fireplace. In addition to the musical arts, the art of visual entertainment is enjoyed through 4k projection on a 160-inch screen encircled by the 9.2 speaker system in true theater seats. There is a casual space downstairs as well, with the fourth stone fireplace, and a kitchenette for snacks at intermission. Each level is accessed by a commercial elevator, and all there is to enjoy is accessible due to ADA compliance. At any performance, parking is a consideration, but not to worry. There are three garage bays on the main level of the home, an additional, detached, 1,500 sq. ft. two-car garage, and a single garage that connects to the music studio. Next to the garage is a full-scale gym for those wishing to keep their health in tune. When it comes time to store the instruments of life, enjoy a storage room above the main level garage, an electric lift to enable additional storage space, an incredible number of closets punctuate the entire home, and there is a safe room. And when it's time for the volume to lower and the day's performance to end, there are five bedrooms and a loft, served by four full bathrooms and three half baths. This home is truly built for those who wish to experience a lifestyle surrounded by nature's art, on 4.65 acres and within 15,000 sq. ft. of unique space meant to enchant, enable and inspire.
