House of the Day: Fly or Sail to Tennessee's Heights
Though on the outside, this $4.9 million Tennessee mansion looks like it belongs in the Hamptons, on the inside it's the epitome of Southern charm.
The stone-and-shingle residence in Smithville, Tenn., boasts stunning pale wood interiors, stone fireplaces, arched ceilings, and spacious balconies offering glorious vistas of Tennessee's sun-kissed Center Hill Lake. And while we're on the topic of Center Hill Lake, the property also comes with a very lovely, very Southern, two-story houseboat that sits right on the water, which can serve as an extension of the main house for visiting guests to stay. Or as a "party pad" -- whatever tickles your fancy. Take a peek below.
Aside from the charming five-bedroom, five-bathroom main house, the estate features 3.5 acres of forested hillside, plus worn stone paths that lead you through the beautifully untamed greenery that surrounds the main house.
Not convinced? Get this: The home features its own private helipad, tucked away above the roof of the garage, so far-away guests can fly in and out with ease. Southern hospitality at its finest, perhaps?
