Step Inside Allendale Mansion
Walk Through The Mansion With Us
I’ve had the pleasure of visiting Allendale Mansion before. It is one of my favorite places to do a photo shoot! However, walking the grounds around Allendale Mansion and touring the house are two separate things and this was the first time I had a chance to view the upstairs. Oh my! I’m ready to move in.
When you first enter the foyer the staircase greets you! This spot has become a staple for brides to pose on. Allendale Mansion is a favorite wedding spot here in East Tennessee.
One of my favorite features in the house is the art. Some pieces were purchased from The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. T likes the art too!
The most used room in the mansion, back in the days when the Brooks lived there, was the library. And it’s little wonder. The fireplace could not be cozier and the bookshelf was calling to me too!
The Pink Room was once the guest room and I wish it was my room. The four-poster bed, the fireplace, the giant windows streaming in golden sunshine, the gorgeous rug!!!! Dreamy…
The Green Room in Allendale Mansion was also a guest room and it’s interesting to know that if you look closely you can see that it suffered damage from two separate fires which started in the kitchen just below it.
The Master Bedroom is also something to see! Double beds, a beautiful fireplace, a Louis the 14th-style dressing table, and gorgeous art!
Besides the art, I was most taken by the chandeliers. This one in the Dining Room is absolutley stunning!
Allendale Mansion is one of East Tennessee’s little treasures and the generosity of the Brooks is something worth celebrating. If you haven’t visited the mansion and walked the grounds, you really should. It is a very peaceful place, locked in its own chunk of time, waiting to show you what lovely is.
