Charming curb appeal with a covered front porch overlooking the low maintenance landscaped yard that is framed by the historic limestone walls. The owners focused on incorporating many of the original character and charm of the home in its rebuild. Salvaging the original staircase with one of a kind newel posts and banister is beautifully showcased in the now open and flowing main level wonderful large gatherings. The original mantle remains in the front sitting room and is a fantastic aesthetic focal point. The flow from the sitting room to the open formal dining space and into the everyday gathering area and open kitchen makes for easy and attractive entertaining for friends and family. The vintage heart pine flooring was milled from beams from a Chattanooga downtown warehouse. The cabinetry in the kitchen and bathrooms was repurposed from the original 1880s heart of pine lumber taken from the home during demolition.

The specifically designed layout encourages gathering around the island while allowing for easy movement to the backyard oasis.

The attractiveness of this home does not stop with the interior. Moving to the backyard the continued pattern of recycling the old with the new gives way to a wonderful outdoor oasis in the midst of urban living. The bricks from the home's original fireplaces were re-cycled as the patio pavers surrounding the newly constructed gunite plunge pool featuring a sun shelf for soaking in the rays, 4 water fountains adding to the ambiance, and adjoining 6 person heated spa. Talk about a great way to spend evenings, days or weekends whether it is cooling off during a hot summer day or enjoying the warmth on a cool evening.
