Historic 1927 Lookout Mountain home with an architectural heritage worthy of notice. The homes builder, Agustas Meehan had a great love of English architecture and fitted the home with leaded glass windows, thick ceiling beams, heavy wooded doors and limestone fireplaces to capture a true European aesthetic. Three quarter inch thick oversized slate tile roof was specially designed without copper valleys to prevent degrading over the years and remains an engineering work of art to this day. With 2 feet thick stone walls, the house will remain a treasure for generations to come. This homes architectural significance and beautifully proportioned rooms inspired the owners to purchase this property in 2010. Although the home had been extensively renovated in 1996 by prior owners, the new owners felt the home needed to be lightened up. The first priority was to create a large master bathroom and his & hers closets from an existing bedroom. The kitchen was gutted to create an English inspired kitchen with hand rolled glass for the cabinets, marble backsplash and a proper butlers pantry with storage room for everything. Staying true to the architecture, the current owners removed a number of design inconsistencies and over embellishments added during previous renovations. There are breathtaking views from almost every window. All bedrooms have marble en suite baths and the expansive 3rd level has been finished to accommodate less formal needs and can serve as a recreational space for today's families. 2.8 acres of gardens are designed to supply beauty with blooming plantings. The gardens were featured in Southern Accents magazine in May 2007. Plantings rotate color from early spring through fall and include peonies, hydrangeas, rose arbors, flowering trees, bushes & other shrubs held within formal hedges that include 1500 boxwoods of various varieties. The terraced property provides garden rooms for outdoor entertaining. Situated on a bluff 1000 feet above Chattanooga, Tennessee, summer temperatures average 8 degrees cooler than the town below. This makes for maximum enjoyment of the outdoor spaces for most of the year. There are also manicured and landscaped paths down to the mountain bluff with majestic points of interest and same spectacular views of 5 neighboring states as seen from the home. This home has no rival in the area and must be seen to appreciate. The large pool with a solar cover is situated just right on the property and shares the views.
