I’m not a big TV watcher, there’s just not a lot on television that appeals to me these days. Occasionally, I’ll catch a show on HGTV while I’m grabbing a bite to eat at lunchtime. Recently I had the TV on in the kitchen and I saw a promo for a show called Chrisley Knows Best. Have you seen it? I was only about half listening but my ears perked up when they said the family in this “family comedy reality show” lives in Georgia just north of Atlanta.
That prompted me to do a Google search to see what the show was about and the first thing I found was an article saying their home is for sale. The Chrisley family, Todd , Julie and their five children, Kyle, Savannah, Chase, Lindsie, and Grayson, live in a spacious 30,000 square foot home. Todd mentions in a video online that they live in the same neighborhood as Chipper Jones (previous Braves baseball player) and several other local athletes and celebrities, so I think I may know the neighborhood.
Apparently, they’ve had their home on the market several times over the last few years. I’ve always heard it can be a harder to sell homes in the upper $ range since there’s just not as many potential candidates to buy those.
Of course, you know I had to check it out! How about a home tour?
The house is decorated in a pretty formal style. Todd Chrisley describes it (and I’m paraphrasing) as formal but with a casual, comfortable feel.
You get an idea just how expansive the home is from the length of this hall.
The home has several living rooms.
In a video I watched online, Todd Chrisley described this as the library. He said no one in the home has ever taken lessons to learn to play the grand piano. Someone needs to take lessons, don’t they? Maybe they can talk Grayson, their youngest, into learning.
Another living room that Todd refers to as their “formal” living room.
The prints shown hanging on the wall in the living room are from Coco Chanel’s Paris apartment. Love how they look here!
This is the heart of the home where the family spends most of their time. In this view we see the kitchen, the breakfast area and a family or hearth room.
Another view of the kitchen…
Julie Chrisley enjoys cooking and the whole family has dinner together every night at 6:00 PM. That’s a pretty good feat in this day and time, corralling a whole family together for dinner each night.
In several of the videos at the show’s website, Todd and Julie are filmed sitting on this sofa, except it’s turned around facing the other way. In the video you can see the built-in bookshelves and fireplace behind them. It’s always so interesting to me to see how rooms get totally rearranged for photo and video shoots. While watching the video, I kept wondering why the fireplace was behind the sofa. In reality, it’s not!
The formal dining room is such a beautiful room, understated and elegant.
This house has 9 bedrooms! I loved several of the bedrooms, especially the master bedroom. This isn’t the master, I think it may be a guest room. Isn’t it beautiful?! The soft green and white toile gives it such a peaceful feel. Notice the toile continues right onto the ceiling. This house has a surprising amount of wallpaper and I have to say, I do love it! If wallpaper wasn’t sure a pain to remove when you want to change up a room, I’d be tempted to add some in one of my bedrooms, or perhaps my entry.
This bedroom I believe belongs to one of the boys.
This is Savannah’s bedroom, the youngest daughter in the family. She loves the color pink as you can tell. Love the wall treatment…I’m guessing that’s a wallpaper that looks like silk damask fabric. Or, maybe it is fabric. Very pretty!
Another masculine feeling bedroom so I’m guessing this one belongs to one of the older boys.
Another lovely bedroom…perhaps this one belongs to the other daughter, Lindsie, although I think she is married and has her own home in the show. The draperies throughout the home are absolutely beautiful!
Okay, I saved my favorite bedroom for last, the master bedroom. When I watched a video on the show’s website, the blue was much softer and not near as bright as it appears here. I really liked it in the video. I like the wall shelf with the plates above it on both sides of the bed. Great way to fill that expanse of space. Doesn’t this room remind you of something Mario Buatta would have designed?
A beautiful seating area off the master…I noticed a lot of the bedrooms have a little seating area or room adjoining them.
I think this must be the sunroom we saw through the doors of the sitting area in the picture above. Gorgeous room!
The master bedroom has His and Her closets that appear identical in size.
The master bath…imagine soaking in the tub with a toasty fire blazing away while watching TV.
This appears to be a second sunroom. I wonder if they are able to open the windows and sort of turn this area into a screened-in porch when they like. Bet this is wonderful in the fall with a fire going in the fireplace.
I wonder if this bar is located on the terrace level of the home. There’s also a theater and a wine cellar on the terrace level.
A fabulous exercise room…
The family enjoys swimming together here in the backyard.
