Unique opportunity if you are looking for a beautiful, restored, historic residence in a super convenient location with the added bonus of having income potential. Zoned R-4, allowing for a variety of uses, this property known as the ''Kelley House'' would make a lovely bed and breakfast and/or an event venue just minutes from downtown Chattanooga on McCallie Ave. The main house was built circa 1891 with some additions in the 1920's, while the adjoining ''event'' structure was added in 1995. The resulting layout of this property makes this the perfect spot for ''living'' on one side and ''entertaining'' on the other with a parking lot on the far side of the gated driveway to accommodate guests. The sellers have been painstakingly working to restore the original residence, including installing new wiring (phase 3), plumbing, insulation and HVAC systems, refinishing hardwoods, installing period lighting, updating kitchens and baths and even replicating original paint colors and wall paper to reflect the style of this era. You will absolutely love the curb appeal offered by the Queen Anne style, as well as the meticulous landscaping and sweeping gated driveway. The exterior charm also extends to the interior of the house where you will find such lovely features as the delightful wavy glass window panes, accordion-style French doors, lovely moldings, multiple decorative fireplaces with tile surround and beautiful mantles, and antique lighting - just to name a few. The main house features a spacious foyer with black and white tile and exquisite sconces with a spacious music room on the right and the formal living room on the left. The living room opens to the library with wonderful built-ins which in turn opens to the spacious sun room with 3 walls of windows and access to the wrap around front porch providing an abundance of natural lighting. The sunroom also opens to the enormous dining room which is perfect for gatherings large and small and provides a wonderful flow for entertaining. The kitchen has been updated with modern appliances but also retains a butler's pantry for display and storage needs. A rear hall has access to a new powder room that shows off one of 2 lovely stained glass windows and also leads to a tiered private courtyard area which provides a quit oasis and a lovely spot for outdoor dining and fun. This area also has access to the over-sized single bay garage. Looking for a private green space - then you will love that there is also a fenced yard with mountain views, a garden area and pergola/swing - perfect for keeping an eye on the kids or pets. The upper level of the main house has a sitting area off of the landing, a bedroom suite with a private bath that boasts a claw-footed tub and marble vanity, an additional bedroom currently being used as an office, the original master suite with its own entry hall and private bath with air jetted tub, plus 2 additional bedrooms, one with a private bath and access to the attic storage. The attic has spray foam insulation to help with energy costs. The new master bedroom is just off of the hallway connecting the old with the new and boasts an enormous walk-in closet and master bath with dual vanity, soaking tub and separate shower. There is also a huge butler's pantry with wine fridge, prep sink and walk-in refrigerator, access to a rear fenced patio area, a 2nd full kitchen, 2nd laundry facility and additional storage on this level. Head down to the enormous great room or event hall that has a beamed ceiling with decorative chandelier and stone gas fireplace, an additional entry from a side foyer, as well as easy access to a media room, another room with utility sink and both the men's and women's commercial bathrooms. While the sellers have worked hard to maintain the vintage feel, they have not skipped the modern amenities, and you will love that it has smart home wiring, an elaborate fire and security system and more.

What people are saying about George...

We have had a working relationship with George Kammerer for over two years. We first met him when he showed us a rental property. He was immediately warm and welcoming, and the experience was like we were being shown around by a friend. Over the next 2 years he continued to help us as we looked into transitioning from renters to homeowners. He was always quick to answer any questions we had, show us properties, and educate us on the next steps to take and refer us to reputable companies. He always went above and beyond for us even when he wasn't getting anything in return, and we are so thankful and grateful that he helped educate us and send us to the right people. We ultimately purchased the same rental property that he showed us 2 years ago, and we wouldn't have gotten there without his help, guidance, and expertise! George is friendly and knowledgeable without being pushy or condescending. He knows the area well and will go above and beyond to help you find what you are looking for. I would work with him again and 100% recommend using him for your home buying needs! Joel & Jessica Bowman
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
