Does this home look familiar? It likely will to any “Gone With the Wind” fans! My current listing at 180 Whirlwind Point was modeled after the “Tara” home.
“Whirlwind” was built by Jake Butcher, infamous East Tennessee banker and 1976 Democratic nominee for governor, for his actress wife Sonya Wilde. When he was found to have committed massive fraud his assets were auctioned off to satisfy his debts, placing his gorgeous home on the public market.
After transferring hands, the mansion was subdivided into five luxury condos, each with their own unique character.
Today the home is offered as a single property. It is in need of some TLC, but the backbones of a magnificent mansion and captivating story remain.
