Located off Poplar Avenue, the lovely neighborhood of Nottoway is home to 63 custom-quality residences. The gated Germantown community is in close proximity to all East Memphis has to offer. As you enter the neighborhood, you’ll quickly notice the stunning homes and lush landscaping, including two common areas and two lakes. “The exclusive gated neighborhood of Nottoway in West Germantown is ideally located within close proximity to all things Memphis and Germantown,” says Realtor Joshua Spotts with Crye-Leike, Realtors. “Merely blocks from the Poplar Avenue business district and equidistant to the excellent shops of Saddle Creek, not to mention countless restaurants and entertainment venues.” This traditional 5-bed, 4-bath home has striking curb appeal catch your eye. Built in 2005, this newly listed home has impressive features such as hand-milled reclaimed hardwood floors, light-filled rooms, an updated kitchen and room for outdoor living.
“The home has a rustic elegance to it,” Josh says. “The impeccable hardwood floors throughout are noteworthy in that they are reclaimed from an aged structure in Louisiana and have amazing character to them. And the front door light is created with an ever-flickering gas lantern.” The custom iron front doors lead into the grand entry hall, which opens to a formal dining room. A spectacular chandelier hangs from the ceiling, which features a center medallion and is framed by custom crown moulding. “The dining room, located in the center of the home, has a commanding view from its large picture window, the front entry and into the butler’s pantry,” Josh tells us. “The chandelier is stunning at first sight and grows ever more intriguing while gazing at it’s multi-faceted crystals.” Large entryways connect the living spaces on the home’s main floor.
Just off of the dining room, you will find the living room, with similarly designed custom millwork, including custom crown moulding and a center medallion. Both the dining and living rooms share stunning reclaimed hardwood floors, and the living room also features a fireplace with custom mantle and built-in shelving. Double doors allow the space to be flooded with natural light and offer views of the back patio. “The living room, while more formal than the keeping room, is beautiful in every aspect,” Josh explains. “The room is comfortable and makes any guest feel right at home.”
The dining room also connects to the gourmet kitchen via the butler’s pantry. A beamed ceiling, granite countertops and custom backsplash add interest to the space, while high-end appliances, including a double oven, gas cooktop, dishwasher, microwave, trash compactor and fridge, provide modern conveniences you’d expect from such a high-end home. The layout makes entertaining easy, with an eat-in counter and attached sitting area, where you’ll find a custom fireplace and built-ins that complement the kitchen’s beamed ceiling. “The keeping room is the most well-used room in the home,” Josh tells us. “A gas burning fireplace, the adjacent chef’s kitchen, large windows, and access to a petite side patio and yard make this one of the best spots for everyone.”
The spacious master suite features the bedroom, which overlooks the home’s yard and patio, a lush master bathroom and walk-in closet. The bathroom is an ideal place for relaxation — take full advantage of the tub, double vanities and shower. The neutral palette exudes calm, a welcome feature when drawing a bath!
In addition to the master suite, there is another bedroom on the first floor. Currently being used as an office, this room has a connected bath. The three remaining bedrooms are found on the second floor, each similar size with ensuite bathrooms.
As we enter fall and are treated to cooler weather, we are most excited about the home’s patios and outdoor living space. “The two patios are phenomenal! They each have fountains and are totally secluded with mature landscaping and hedging,” Josh tells us. “The main patio is abundant in size and creates an ambiance of warmth, perfect for cool fall nights.”
“This home has perfect finishes throughout, which one can easily recognize upon entering the home. My initial visit to the home left me surprised at how well laid out it is, with tons of storage, a three-car garage (and storage room), master bedroom and guest room on the first floor, and quiet outdoor areas with complete privacy,” Josh says.
