Everyone’s home should be their retreat, a place where they can return after a long day to relax and recharge. And if ever there was a home to provide that type of respite, it’s this amazing house at 2200 Hampton Avenue in Green Hills. The three-story, 6,200-square-foot home sits on nearly an acre in the coveted 37215 zip code. With five bedrooms and four-and-a-half baths, it is rich in amenities, ensuring that whoever gets to call it home will be lucky to do so. Let’s take a look!

As you drive up to the property, it’s impossible to miss the lush landscaping and tall, shady trees that surround this classic brick home. Inside, the spacious foyer provides a welcoming first impression for all who enter, and it’s love at first sight when you spot features like the wide pocket doors, 10-foot ceilings and pristine trim and molding, thoughtful touches for this high-end home. “This house has great spatiality and flow from the foyer and formal rooms to the kitchen and casual living rooms,” says realtor Richard Courtney of Christian, Patterson, Courtney & Associates, who is selling this home. “The large rooms and high ceilings create a distinct sense of openness.”

The library is just off to the right as you enter the home. A fireplace ensures cozy evenings curled up with a book, while the large floor-to-ceiling window makes it a naturally uplifting space to sit for a spell. To the left as you enter the home is the formal dining room, which features gracious floor-to-ceiling windows, tasteful chair rail and recessed lighting to showcase art, photographs or whatever items you treasure. It’s touches like these that make this home such a gem!

The foyer is spacious and welcoming, with natural light coming in through the many front windows.

Head to the back of the house, and you’ll discover the living room, which also has a fireplace. “The expansive living room is filled with natural light, has dual access to the outdoor living areas and also melds into the kitchen,” shares Richard. Recessed lighting allows for subtle light, while the pair of French doors allow for plenty of natural light as well. Head out the French doors to the deck, which overlooks the heated saltwater pool below.

As every homeowner knows, the kitchen is the place where everyone gathers, and this one, being of ample size, is the place to do just that. Plus, it’s been updated and features new, top of the line appliances, which are complemented by the generous amount of cabinet storage. “The design of the kitchen allows for an island and eat-in dining space as well as custom bookshelves that can house hundreds of cookbooks,” shares Richard. Thoughtful features like a built-in wine rack and the cookbook shelves Richard mentions are highly desirable, as is the pass-through from the kitchen to the family room. Speaking of, the spacious family room features a vaulted ceiling, beautiful hardwoods and plenty of natural light. “The family room was original to the home,” explains Richard, “and has a cathedral ceiling with loads of light and access to the kitchen.”

The kitchen is large and accommodating and features plenty of natural light.

UPSTAIRS

Head upstairs and you’ll find four additional bedrooms. Two of the rooms are connected by a Jack and Jill bathroom, and the home’s third full bath accommodates the other two bedrooms. Each of the rooms are spacious, and all offer plenty of natural lighting to create tranquil spaces for family members or guests. Upstairs is also where you’ll find the laundry room, which offers plenty of cabinet storage and counter space for whoever is on folding duty.

THE LOWER LEVEL

Head down to the lower level and you’ll discover an entertainment paradise. A soundproof space, the lower level is great for watching movies, playing music and having friends over to hang out, and there’s no worry of disturbing the rest of the family upstairs. Additional features we love include a wet bar, rec room, full bath, office and access to the pool … it’s like a home of its own! Also on the lower level is a large two-car garage as well as 800 more square feet of space with poured concrete walls.

The lower level is soundproof and is a great place to kick back and watch a movie or play music.
