Here today, gone tomorrow?
Thanks to a multitude of mobile corporate execs, juicy properties such as this often pop up on the local market, but they may not last
In Wiliamson County, corporate transfers seem to be a way of life.
Such is the story of Sheri and Herb Aaberg, who moved from Colorado to Brentwood in 2012. They had planned to have a five year “adventure” in the Nashville area before returning to Colorado. Instead, just two years after moving here, they are off to Chattanooga, thanks to another corporate transfer.
Consequently, the home they purchased and have loved is now on the market.
Their 4,887-square-foot Sunset Road house, built in 2006 by John Weiland, is listed for $849,900. Lisa Culp Taylor with Bob Parks Realty is the listing agent.
Sheri Aaberg says they are disappointed that they have to leave this home, which she says has a perfect floor plan and loads of privacy. It is situated within a medium-size development, Wetherbrooke.
“We have two of our four bedrooms on the main floor; they are at opposite ends of the house,” she said. “It’s a terrific design for family living as well as when you’re having over-night guests.
“Each bedroom has its own bath. It’s just an incredible home, suitable to formal or informal living and entertaining.”
The half-acre lot backs to up to 10 acres of commons area.
“That fact, plus the landscaping in the back, provides all the privacy in the world,” she said. “There’s even a great spot where a pool could go and still be surrounded by mature landscaping. While the landscaping as really nice when we purchased the home, we’ve reworked and added to it. The outdoor living space offers a peaceful respite.”
Taylor says the home is filled with some super amenities.
“This executive home has stunning details throughout,” she said. “The rooms are spacious; the family room is open, with a soaring ceiling. The natural lighting in the home is incredible. The landscaped backyard is just spectacular.”
The home has four bedrooms, four full bathrooms and two half-baths. Half of the original four-car garage doubles as a man cave. That space has black-and-white tile floors, built-ins for a TV and is wired for sound. Taylor says it’s perfect as a place just to hang out or to tinker with cars, do woodworking or other hobbies.
“This John Weiland design is particularly amenable to differing lifestyles, be if family living, gracious entertaining or hosting house guests or a live-in relative since the two bedrooms on the main floor are so widely separated,” Taylor said. “The garage wings face each other, providing privacy to the sides of the home as well as spacious areas for parking.”
The master bedroom suite has a sitting area. The kitchen has granite and top-notch appliances. The 17-by-14 foot pantry provides plentiful storage. The living room has a fireplace; the rec room includes a wet bar.
Sheri Aaberg says there’s approximately 1,000 square feet over two of the garages that could be finished out for living space.
The property is adjacent to Edmondson Elementary School.
“There’s a nature area behind the school, so there’s a sight and sound buffer. Children can walk to school on a sidewalk,” she said. “We’re zoned for Brentwood Middle and High Schools. You just couldn’t ask for a better location.”
She says the neighborhood is wonderful and very social.
“We’ve enjoyed all aspects of living here,” she said. “The house is great, the neighbors are fantastic and we have such a private setting. It’s difficult to leave all this. I hope we find something in Chattanooga that we like as much. It will be tough to do so.”
