ELDER MOUNTAIN - Elegant, yet comfortable, custom 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath home privately situated on a 1.64 +/- acre wooded lot in the exclusive Elder Mountain community. This hidden jewel of a neighborhood offers residents a quiet enclave of spacious lots with natural settings and local wildlife, a guard station to keep an eye on security, a community pool for warm weather gatherings and the opportunity to let their cares fall away every time they come home. It feels like it is located in another world, yet it is only minutes from downtown Chattanooga, the North Shore, hospitals, schools, the TN River, The Black Creek Mountain Golf Course and so much more. The home was meticulously designed and beautifully finished, boasting a fantastic open floor plan with soaring ceilings, Heart of Pine flooring, Travertine tile, arched doorways, brick and stone accents, decorative lighting, as well as aluminum clad Marvin windows and doors which provide warm natural lighting throughout, and fantastic outdoor living spaces which give the home a wonderful flow for entertaining, while taking full advantage of the wooded setting and professionally designed landscaping, including your very own English garden, various rose bushes and vine covered trellises. Your tour of the main level begins with the double door entry to the dedicated foyer that opens to a dramatic great room with 27' high beamed ceilings and a floor to ceiling stone, wood burning fireplace. There is more than enough room for a dining area, and 2 sets of French doors lead to the expansive covered patio with recessed lighting, ceiling fans and surround sound. You can easily open up the doors and effectively extend your living space and invite the outdoors in. A large arched doorway leads from the great room to the gourmet kitchen where the home chef will want for nothing. An over-sized granite center island offers seating for casual meals, storage and prep space. High end appliances include a Dacor dual fuel range and warming drawer, Kitchen Aid Pro dishwasher and fridge, plus a separate ice maker in the refreshment center with a wet bar and built-in wine storage. The custom cabinetry has soft-close and pull-out drawers, and the baker in you will love the pull-out stand for your mixer. Travertine back splash extends all the way to the bottom of the cabinets and is well lit by under-cabinet lighting. A walk-in pantry is merely icing on the cake. The powder room is in the rear hallway to the 3 bay extra deep garage, as is the mudroom which is currently being used as a 2nd office, and the laundry room which has ample room for an extra fridge or freezer plus a utility sink with granite counter top, a storage closet and even more cabinetry. The master suite is on the other end of the main level, and on the way, you will find French doors to a handsome office that also has a convenient refreshment center. The master bedroom is spacious and has a vaulted ceiling with access to the rear covered patio on one side and a private covered deck on the other which overlooks the English garden - the perfect spot for winding up or winding down your day. This deck also has exterior steps down to the garden, as well as the daylight unfinished basement. With its separate access, this space would make a great private studio or even an in-law suite if desired and is currently being utilized for storage. The master bath is just what you would expect of a home of this quality. It has gorgeous Travertine tile floor with a separate vanity area which includes a dual granite vanity on one side and a make-up vanity on the other and his and her walk-in closets with custom organizer systems. Double doors lead to the jetted Jacuzzi tub, separate shower with over-sized rain head and hand-held and Travertine and glass surround, and a private water closet. The second floor has wonderfully tall 10'ceilings with a landing area that could be used as a small sitting area, as it is wired for cable, and there are 3 additional bedrooms and 2 full baths. One of the bedrooms has a private bath with a claw-footed tub, while the other 2 additional bedrooms and are adjoined by a shared bath with a dual vanity, and each have built-in bench seats with storage - the perfect spots to curl up with a good book. All 3 bedrooms have walk-in closets, so storage space abounds. Style, decor and setting - this home has it all, and there are simply too many fantastic things about this home and property to include them all here.
