Searching for a homestead convenient to town? 12 miles from Downtown Chattanooga, this Lookout Mountain Gentleman's Farm could be the perfect fit.
Lovingly dubbed ''Idyllwild'', the estate was featured in a multi-page spread of the Summer 2019 issue of Atlanta Magazine Home Edition thanks to its celebrity designer-owner. Benefit from the dramatic updates and thoughtful renovations to this comfortable showplace. Ideal for horses, the 12.8 acres is split into fenced pasture and wooded acreage with a 14-stall barn. Enjoy your morning coffee on the classic covered front porch looking out onto the front pasture or the back deck overlooking the saltwater pool and mountain views.
Utilize various living spaces for daily enjoyment and special events hosting refinished hardwood floors and widened doorways to create an open floor plan. Completely updated kitchen with large island and stainless appliances opens into an additional living room. Custom built-in cabinets and fireplace in the substantial dining room, powder room, mud room, and extra large laundry room complete the main level. Large master suite features two walk-in closets and expansive spa bathroom. Three additional bedrooms (1 with ensuite, 2 share a Jack and Jill bathroom).
Owners increased the home's finished square footage in the lower terrace level. Currently income-producing, this additional level of the home holds two bedrooms, bunk room with 8 beds, mini kitchen, and full bathroom. Main lower family room is anchored by custom built-in cabinets and brick fireplace. Smart home installations include Nest Thermostats, Nest Protects, Wink Hub, Smart Light Switches, and Digital Locks.
Horse barn (with separate electricity supply) includes tack room, covered equipment area, and chicken coop. Dining patio overlooks the backyard and pool (with equipment tucked into a charming shed). Multiple locations for a vegetable garden. Chickens, goats, horses, dogs, cats, and yes, even pigs would thrive here. Ideal location: minutes from picturesque Covenant College, popular Rock City and Ruby Falls, and historic Point Park.
