Described as the ‘Iconic Mountain Modern’, the above pictured mega-residence is located along the idyllic Signal Mountain, in Tennessee. And while, the mansion does sprawl across an area of 8,500 sq ft, it is not size that has caught our attention. Rather it is the pixelated-style of the facades from all angles that tickles our fancy, with the general design hinting at a Minecraft-esque scope (at least for the video game aficionados).
Of course, this was probably not the intention of the architect Mike Brady (not be confused with the fictional character from The Brady Bunch, who was also an architect), with the contemporary residence boasting of a host of features that go beyond its ‘digitally arching’ elevation. These aspects, according to an Estately listing, include a Lutron smart house system, a high-end sound system, a Panasonic intercom-based security system and heated concrete arrangement. The electronic ambit is complemented by a range of electrical appliances in the “Chef’s Kitchen”, like Sub-Zero refrigerator, Fisher & Pakel dishwashers and Thermador dual ovens.
As for the internal zones of the Minecraft Mansion, the mansion boasts of three bedrooms, seven bathrooms, an entertainment/media room, a studio/gym, a library, and a study. These habitable spaces are accompanied by the outdoor areas of a screened porch, a brick-made fireplace with a dedicated BBQ space, and the ‘piece de resistance’ of an infinity pool. Lastly, the range of usable spaces are aptly aided by vaulted-ceiling skylights, built-in shelving systems, electronically-operated shades and extra storage rooms.
Oh, and lest we forget, you can also take a gander at the virtual Minecraft Mansion, which entails the accurate rendition of Markus “Notch” Persson’s $70M Beverly Hills residence.
