This spectacular plantation in the heart of Middle Tennessee is one of the finest properties available in America today. The exquisitely crafted 20,000+ sq. ft. manor house sits majestically on nearly 700 of Williamson County's finest acres. The one mile long drive up to the main house ambles through a stunning park-like landscape of old growth trees, creeks, rock outcropping and a glittering 12 acre pond. The magnitude of the property fully comes to light at the front facade of the house with its Corinthian columns, imposing windows and magnificent doors. The entry foyer is highlighted by the grand staircase which rises to the master suite under twin Waterford chandeliers, rare marble flooring, exquisite plaster molding and carved wood entryways create an aristocratic "old world" ambiance.
The formal parlor just off the foyer is the perfect salon for receiving guests or holding music recitals. The lovely plaster mantle and moldings give this room a most elegant charm. The Summer sitting room is a light yet sumptuous living area. The hallmark of this room are the imperial window treatments that have been created using the finest decorator fabrics and superlative trims. The room is complimented by twelve foot ceilings and French doors that open to the pool area. The splendid formal dining room is both elegant and traditional. Separated from the kitchen by a butler's pantry, the dining room declares its antebellum heritage with its ornately crafted plaster ceiling and Waterford chandelier.
The comfortable master suite has a combined area of nearly 4,000 square feet. Amenities include his and her baths with individual wardrobes and dressing areas. The suite also includes an office, exercise room and coffee bar. Several sets of French doors open onto the upstairs terraces. Sweeping, unobstructed views contribute greatly to the unparalleled living experience at Eagles Rest.
Eagles Rest is "the ultimate" for those who enjoy outdoor activities. The gently rolling landscape makes for the perfect family playground. The spring fed lake with dock is ideal for an evening canoe paddle or a pond-side picnic. Other outdoor amenities include an excellent eight stall equestrian center that is well appointed for all the rider's needs. There are miles of walking trails on the property and a secluded log cabin overlooking the West Harpeth River. Additionally, there is a large maintenance shed to accommodate recreational and farm equipment.
The showroom garage will appeal to the auto enthusiast. With space for nine+ vehicles, the showroom garage can accommodate an automobile collection with room to spare. The garage has a workshop area and a half bath. The mansion's elevator makes its bottom stop at the garage.
The pool area is an oasis of charm and tranquility. The waterfall is created from limestone blocks quarried on the property and the fountain rising from the center of the pool adds a European aesthetic to the swimming area.
Privacy and security at Eagles Rest are most reassuring. To enter the property, the private bridge over the scenic Harpeth river must be crossed to reach the main gates of the estate. State-of-the-art surveillance and alarm systems lend to a "peace of mind" on the property. Additionally, there is a climate controlled kennel for a K-9 guard. Eagles Rest is the quintessential lifestyle property. The possibilities are endless for the individual who has the good fortune to live, work and play here in one of America's finest estates.
