On eight tree-lined acres atop Signal Mountain, a gated entrance of original stone columns sets the tone for what’s to come – a private, park-like property with beautifully landscaped grounds and a penchant for entertaining. Commanding the view is the Federalist Revival main house, which flawlessly blends newer technology with the impeccable details of another time.
Living space isn’t hard to come by in the main house, with three separate rooms serving as natural gathering spaces complete with ample seating and brick fireplaces. Depending on the season, guests can enjoy a meal indoors in the formal dining room or outdoors on the roomy back porch.
Large enough to accommodate all of the family cooks as well as wandering guests, the professionally designed kitchen is bathed in natural light. Whimsical open shelving contributes storage and style to the room, while a centrally located island offers up a place to perch as well as additional prep space for parties.
Of course, some of the most desirable opportunities for entertaining await outdoors. One such area is the property’s gazebo, beautifully outfitted for more intimate conversations. Elsewhere, a heated saltwater pool with a covered pavilion can be found, providing a refreshing place to relax and take in the surroundings year-round. Back at the main house, a row of rocking chairs beckons from the covered porch, which is painted a low country Carolina blue.
Also on the property is a two-story guesthouse, perfect for housing extended family and friends with space for everyone, and a studio. The light-filled studio could work as a home office, conditioned workshop, or recreation space, giving the homeowners flexibility to enjoy whatever pursuits they fancy.
This mountain property not only lends itself to entertaining, but it’s also ideally suited for the day-to-day needs of a family. With four bedrooms and four baths in the main house, there is plenty of space for everyone and everything.
