Haute Residence presents a handful of sumptuous backcountry estates across the nation, from an old-fashioned beauty in Tennessee, to a stone-cold charmer in Georgia.
Sited on 11 acres minutes from Farragut, Tennessee, this 5,200-square-foot house—now asking $1.19 million—features five bedrooms and six baths.
A replica of the 1826 Wedge Plantation, the main home showcases custom cabinetry and millwork, stainless steel appliances, and walnut flooring, not to mention baths with clawfoot tubs and marble showers. The estate also includes separate guest quarters over a carriage house.
With five bedrooms and five baths spanning 6,556 square feet, this single-family abode—presently listed at $2 million—sits on 3.39 acres in Plano.
Surrounded by an entire forest, the house features a central courtyard atrium, two studies, and a gated drive, in addition to a landscaped backyard boasting built-in boulder seating areas, a diving pool with a waterfall, spa, and tube waterslide. The property also includes a professional golf green overlooking a creek—an appropriate site for an additional structure.
Poised on nearly three acres, this six-bedroom, seven-and-a-half-bath home—currently on the market for $6.75 million—offers 12,900 square feet of living space.
Noteworthy features of the property include an open floor plan, his-and-hers master bath, and terrace, plus a theater, wine cellar, and billiards room. Outside rests a loggia, grill, outdoor fireplace, and double infinity-edged pool.

Measuring in at 2,937 square feet, this six-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath home rests beside rolling hills and lush meadows with two ponds, providing an unparalleled tranquil retreat.
