Hello, I'm Home

Item 1 of 13


Welcome to a world where classic style meets modern convenience. Stacy Jacobi was introduced to a home off Westland Drive that had a couple of attempts at renovations that just missed the mark. In it, she saw something and had the home gutted to its core and created a home that is extraordinary. “This renovation brought it back to life,” she says.

This mansion is the product of careful and ingenious design, constructed and designed by some of the finest local craftsmen in the area from Braden’s Lifestyle Furniture, bringing each room a unique look.

Several drastic measures were taken by Jacobi when creating this warm home environment. A staircase was moved to create a butler’s pantry housing a large wine refrigerator, and the original garage was relocated to the back of the house and refit as a master bedroom on the main floor. The designers had a two-week turnaround time to get the house ready once the renovations were complete, and the home is now on the
market for sale.

The community had the opportunity to view this masterpiece in person, as Jacobi staged the house for viewing, with all the proceeds benefiting Wesley House. At the recent Home Showcase opening, staff and board members of Wesley House were on hand to educate attendees about how the funds would be allocated as part of their capital campaign. Past recipients of Jacobi’s home showcases include Catholic Charities of East Tennessee, Second Harvest Food Bank and Lakeshore Park Conservancy. Jacobi renovates many homes throughout the year, and earmarks one or two a year to be non-profit fundraisers for local charities.

In the end, Jacobi is looking forward to having this house be a warm and welcoming home for another family. “I am super proud of the kitchen and primary bedroom on the first floor,” Stacy says, “This is a great family home.”
