A rare opportunity to own a custom home described as Mountain Elegance with sophisticated appointments for casual living. This 6,300 plus square feet custom home is one of a kind. It is situated on 3.31 acres, nestled in the woods affording much privacy and in the heart of Lookout Mountain TN. The home was designed by well-regarded Birmingham architect Dick Pickford, whose thoughtful process resulted in a home of exceptional design, flow, and proportion.
Built in 1996, the home has 4 bedroom, 4 full bath and two half baths. A notable feature of the house is the outdoor living space featuring decks off the kitchen and master bedroom, a screened in porch and large pool area. A large playroom upstairs could easily serve as a fifth bedroom. The home features wide salvaged heart of pine floors, cedar shake siding, a cedar shake roof, and all custom doors. It has a custom designed wrought iron banister and a pair of custom made living room chandeliers. Ceiling heights are over 10 feet or more in many of the rooms. Great light flows through all Pella windows. A gorgeous gunite pool surrounded by gardens is the focal point of the lovely private backyard.
There are 4 beautiful fireplaces in the home. Two of them are oversized to fit the scale of the rooms. The kitchen is large and opens to a wood burning fireplace and sitting area with French doors leading onto the deck. It features numerous cabinets, new Italian marble counter tops, a Dacor gas stove, new double ovens, a new sink and faucet, a huge walk-in pantry and has a bead board coffer ceiling. A wonderful dining room with built in bookshelves and a built in banquet around a table has enough space for another table offering many dining options. There is also a large china closet. The living room has a vaulted ceiling, an extra-large fireplace with a custom made screen that remains, and a closet housing a full bar. The library features mahogany wood and built in cabinets and bookshelves and custom mahogany doors.

The master suite has 12 foot ceilings and a fireplace with gas logs, and French doors lead to a private deck.
