Description

BEAUTIFUL AND PRIVATE 5+/- ACRE 1930s ESTATE LOCATED ATOP SCENIC LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN GEORGIA!Rare opportunity to create your own dream home and grounds on beautiful Lookout Mountain, GA enjoying both privacy and convenience to downtown Chattanooga. 'Topton' is perched atop Scenic Lookout Mountain within close proximity to Covenant College, Fairyland Elementary, and the Lookout Mountain Club golf course. The former summer home of Chattanooga bank president, Robert T. Wright, Jr., was built in 1931 and has been remodeled several times since to accomodate growing families. Mr. Wright personally chose the location of the main entrance to be framed by two magnificent Chestnut Oak trees that still stand today. This gracious and inviting home awaits you at the end of the longmeandering circular drive. Mrs. Wright, a landscape architect, designed the landscaping plans for the grounds that include a terraced back lawn and the remnants of the original reflecting pool and gardens. The 4,900 SF two-story framed home includes 6 bedrooms and 5.5 baths. At the heart of the home is an expansive combined living and dining room with pine paneled floors, walls, and ceiling and a cozy 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 areas, and window seating. The second floor of the home has 6 bedrooms and 4 additional bathrooms. You will love the privacy of the several porches and patios overlooking the lushly landscaped grounds and multiple outdoor living opportunities including a gazebo and a 20x40 open air pavilion for entertaining. The master bedroom was originally located on the first floor but later converted into an apartment for John Wright and his wife in 1956. The apartment wing, which could be converted back to the original master suite, offers a more intimate setting with dining and living rooms and a separate kitchen. It currently functions as a mother in-law suite and guest housing. The ample basement extends the length of the home and includes a wine cellar that was originally built as a bomb shelter during the 1960's, a workshop, and an additional laundry room. This home has a unique layout as it can seamlessly flow and function as a whole and 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. Price available upon request. Recent Survey is available and included in the listing documents. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed. Buyer to verify any and all information they deem important. Seller will make no repairs. Home is being sold 'as is.'
