Description

You could not have planned your property search any better with an EXTREMELY rare opportunity to own one of the most beautiful properties on Historic Missionary Ridge in Chattanooga, TN. The popular street the property is located on, N Crest Rd, is extremely popular for its rich history, beautiful views and the location of the ONLY house in TN designed by the world renowned architect, Frank Lloyd Wright. Built at the same time and just 1 block away from the famous home, this 1-level mid-century modern home rests on 6.15 expansive park-like acres, which is one of the largest lots on the entire street. The property also offers absolutely majestic views of both western, downtown Chattanooga and Lookout Mtn, and eastern, Blue Ridge Mtns, sides of the ridge offering stunning sunrises and sunsets that must be experienced to truly appreciate. You will see plenty of walkers and joggers taking advantage of the sidewalks along this picturesque road and admire the exceptional original wall in front of the property that was designed to mimic that of the downtown courthouse by the prominent Chattanooga Judge & Congressman, Sam McReynolds. Enjoy the sunrise coming up over the Blue Ridge Mtns and even catch a glimpse of Big Frog Mtn, the tallest Mtn East of the Mississippi, from the 10 ft deep expansive covered back porch. Then catch the sunset from the front patio or any room on the west side of the home as the sun dips down casting its ending array of colors across Lookout Mtn, the TN River and downtown Chattanooga. The exterior also boasts a 3-car garage, a 960 sq ft guest home with carport, a private garden & horseshoe pit and an elevated 670 sq ft stone terrace that offers both eastern & western views. Plenty of room for additional homes with beautiful views making it perfect for multiple families or investors/builders. Enter into an impressive open floor plan with vast hardwood floors and a wall of windows to take in the city views.The centerpiece of the room is the massive stone and shiplap fireplace hearth that has a wraparound gas fireplace and a large wood burning fireplace with stone mantle and wood box. The spacious room allows you to cater to your own preference where the living area or the formal dining room are located depending on which breathtaking view you prefer. Enter into the sectioned off area where you will find the kitchen, breakfast area, family room, and 3 bedrooms. The kitchen offers granite counters, floor to ceiling cabinets, double ovens, an adorable vintage Heartland gas range, and some amazing views of the downtown and TN River areas of Chattanooga. The large breakfast area has a walk-in pantry and is where you get your first glimpse of the ultra rare original cork floors in exceptional condition. Follow the 90 degree herringbone pattern cork floors into the large family that offers a wet bar area and a second wood burning fireplace with a Vermont Casting wood burning stove that is capable of heating most of the home. Three bedrooms stem from the family room, including the owner's suite with tray ceilings. Each bedroom has a wall of windows for the views. Even the bedroom baths have private windows so you never miss a moment of the heart warming view. There is also an executive office with built-in shelves that could also serve as a 4th bedroom or nursery if needed. Several convenient closets and storage areas are throughout the home and you have a staircase access to the entire attic for additional storage. If this home is in your budget and you hunger for the best views of the Chattanooga area, don't miss this rare opportunity to visit and stroll across the acres of park-like property where anything is possible. Experience for yourself the reason why the convenience of one of Chattanooga's most historic and exclusive areas is so sought after. Detailed video walk-throughs or private in-person/virtual tours available for qualified Buyers.
