Absolutely amazing attention to detail in this custom renovation in the heart of North Chattanooga and just minutes from schools, shopping, parks, restaurants, hospitals and the hustle and bustle of downtown. Once you see this home, you will truly appreciate the meticulous research behind design and finish of this 3 or 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath stylized European country home that is situated on a deep lot that stretches to the rear alley allowing for a coveted rear detached double garage and gated entry to the rear arbored driveway and additional single car garage. Views of Lookout Mountain are the icing on the cake. This was a 95% restoration with only 2 heart of pine floors and a 95 year old fireplace remaining over the original foundation. Some of the most noteworthy additional details are as follows: multiple outdoor living spaces, including the rear flagstone patio with outdoor wood burning fireplace and mood setting antique wine bottle lighting, security system with cameras, full house audio in/out, multiple flat screen televisions, stone, brick and Hardie exterior, foam insulation, irrigation system, exterior copper gas lanterns, interior stone and wood accent walls, alabaster and onyx vessel sinks, solid doors, custom handcrafted cabinetry, kitchen and closet organizer systems, specialty and vaulted ceilings – many with dramatic beams, restored hardwoods, Travertine and onyx tile flooring, multiple "barn" and double door entries and so much more! The lovely front stone archways and imported custom iron and glass front double door entry sets the tone for your tour of the inside, and you will definitely continue to be impressed as you enter the spacious living room with stone gas fireplace, large stone arch to the kitchen and 2 sets of barn doors – one to the handsome office and one to the staircase and powder room. The office was designed so that it could be utilized as a 2nd master on the main level if desired and has a nice closet and full private bath. The kitchen is a dream whether you are a novice or a chef with Sandalus Leather Granite counter tops, center island with one of two Stone Forest granite sinks and lowered breakfast bar, 2 Asko dishwashers with adjustable racks for over-sized cookware or delicate stemware, two Sub Zero refrigerators with 4 freezer drawers, 7 foot Sub Zero thermostatically controlled wine cellar, Hoshizaki icemaker, Advantium Speed Cook oven, Wolf convection range with 6 gas burners, griddle and dual ovens, walk-in pantry with farmhouse shelves and wrought iron supports, cabinetry with wire front inserts and glass detailing, as well as many hidden extras behind the cabinet doors not to be missed! The kitchen is also open to the dining room and has access to the laundry room, terrace level and private steps to the master suit which is a retreat unto itself at 31' x 35' with a separate private staircase and double door entry, 12' distressed wood ceilings, back lighting detail, custom cut, chevron reclaimed wooden floors, morning bar with linen storage, double sided stone fireplace, 12' wooden sliders to the lanai with stone wall, Trex flooring, wrought iron railing, copper gas lanterns and Dynasty Spa. Enjoy the Lookouts fireworks and sunsets from this private jewel! A 2nd set of double doors leads to master bath with onyx tile, separate vanities with Polynesian imported custom vessel sinks, a hammered copper and nickel lined soaking tub, separate shower with onyx tile and "rain" privacy glass – even better – it has lovely views and the shared gas fireplace. The HIS and HER separate walk-in closets both feature 12', triple levels of storage, easily accessed by "library" ladders. Both feature granite counterbtops at the built in dressing area. There is a separate upstairs area with a bonus room or den that has an Italian glass chandelier, plus 2 additional bedrooms, and a 3rd full bath with tile floors and dual mosaic onyx sinks. There is a 3rd gathering space on the terrace level with stone plank flooring and another gas fireplace with a second office area, access to great storage, the single bay garage and the rear courtyard/patio area through 12' sliders. Truly a must see for the discerning buy, so please call for even more information and to schedule a private viewing. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed. Buyer to verify any and all information that is important to them. Owner/Agent.

What people are saying about George...

If you are moving locally or from out of state, do yourself the biggest favor ever and engage the services of George Kammerer. George's knowledge of the area is unsurpassed, and guided us to an area that we described we were interested in living and suited our specific needs. Since we were moving from out of state, the timing was critical that we could coordinate our time and George's to the maximum. He also is remarkably quick to respond to any email or text that you submit. He is the first realtor [we've used] that truly wants his clients to be happy! He asks questions that are relevant to finding the house that you expect to find within the price range that you specify....George does not "push" nor does he "fast talk" you into making a hasty decision. He is a very patient man and has a background that can assist you in answering questions you may have while reviewing a home. I believe my husband and I are "sort of picky" and we would rate George a 5+ in every area shown above. Ruth VonDreau
We worked with George in selling our home (which was a great experience), so having him help us buy our next home was a no-brainer. He was always available to us, and would hunt down information we felt important in the listings we were viewing. His expertise in the area, especially Chattanooga, was very helpful and allowed us to finally choose a home for our family. We would highly recommend his services. Ralph & Jennifer Hairsine
We visited Chattanooga on 2 separate occasions to look at properties with George. He gave us 100% of his time and attention and knew exactly what we were looking for in a home. We trusted him so much in fact that we ended up purchasing a home that we never got a chance to visit in person. It came on the market just as we were leaving Chattanooga, but George visited the listing, took pictures and inspected the property. He was certain it was the home for us and we trusted him. George went above and beyond what we expected by visiting the home to make sure that it was properly maintained for 3 months while we prepared to relocate from Nevada. He even turned on the air conditioner for us once the weather warmed up to keep the house comfortable. We are happy to have met him and now be able to call him a friend Jacquie Brown
