Description

First time listed in its 90 year history!'Topton' is the summer home of former Chattanooga bank president, Robert T. Wright, Jr. It was constructed in 1931 and has been remodeled several times since.The 5+ acre estate includes a private meandering circular drive that leads to the gorgeous two story framed home flanked in the front by an expansive shaded lawn and complimented by a sunny back yard, terraced gardens, and reflecting pool ready to be restored to its' original luster. The location of the main entrance is framed by two magnificent Chestnut Oak trees and was personally chosen by Mr. Wright himself. The expansive central room of this 4,900 SF home has the original heart pine paneled walls, flooring, ceiling and exposed wooden beams complete with a mountain stone fireplace. This impressive room is enhanced by an abundance of natural light from the adjacent sun-filled library and family room. The main kitchen is directly adjoining offering a large central island, spacious eating area and cozy window seating. The south wing of the house, which could be converted to a master suite, offers a more intimate setting with dining and living rooms and a separate kitchen. The second floor of the home has 6 bedrooms and 4 baths. You will absolutely love the privacy of several porches and patios overlooking the lushly landscaped grounds and multiple outdoor living opportunities including a gazebo and 20x40 open air pavilion. The ample basement extends the length of the home and includes a wine cellar that was originally built as a bomb shelter during the 60's, a workshop, and an additional laundry room. This house has a unique layout as it can seamlessly flow and function as a whole but also has the option of operating as two independent living spaces with separate porch entrances and full kitchens. Lovingly maintained, the exterior has been freshly painted. The roof has been replaced within the last three years and the water heaters and HVACs are all less than six years old. Topton is a personal pocket of nature! An oasis of serenity and the perfect place to create your own special memories for years to come. Additional acreage and log cabin available.
