STACKED stone columns, warm
wood and an outdoor stone fireplace
create a cozy escape for the Newsome
home in the Georgetowne neighbor-hood
off South College Road.
The 800-square-foot space was added
in 2020 to accompany the family’s pool.
It features a chef’s kitchen with seating at
a bar top that’s backlit, an eight-person
dining table, and couch seating by the fire-place.
There are two flat-screen TVs.
“We have named it The Sanctuary
because it looks like a church with the
vaulted ceiling. We have dinner parties out
here,” says homeowner Monty Newsome,
who often hires a chef to cook the outdoor
meals with friends. “Most everyone who
sees it, their mouth drops open. It’s so beau-tiful.
We really have enjoyed it.”
The structural design is by Atlantic
Barn and Timber and was constructed
by Blue Chip Builders. Slate tile flooring
came from Sellers Tile & Custom Counters
and the stone pillars and fireplace is by
Stone Garden, using Tennessee Shawnee
Mountain stacked fieldstone.
“I love the interplay between the warmth
of this mountain fieldstone and the cool
blue water of the pool. It’s like having the
best of both worlds,” says Stone Garden
proprietor Nina Brown.
