The feeling of excitement and curiosity consumes you as you step to the bold, yet artistically delicate pivot door that leads from the house to the back patio. When pushed, it exposes you to two sensations: one, the spectacle of a view few mountain homes can rival; and secondly, the simple act of opening that door has the immediate effect of also opening your sense of wonder and imagination. In short, it’s a bolt of beauty. Lookout Mountain is the centerpiece of this panorama, but closer at hand is the 25-yard saline lap pool, a grass area perfect for volleyball or your favorite summer games, the hot tub, firepit, pizza oven, and the mass of patio that provides a stage for unforgettable parties and incredible stargazing. Wrapping around to the left is a covered/heated dining area with fireplace, pizza oven, and barbecue bay. Inside, the scene – created by noted Bay Area designer Jay Jeffers – is equal parts San Francisco elegance and mountain comfort. At the core of this 5,050-square-foot Martis Camp estate is the great room that vaults skyward as you enter, capped by equally towering windows framing Lookout Mountain. To one side is a kitchen with expansive breakfast counter to complement its expansive view. The adjacent dining room has its own private fireplace along with a bank of windows filled with forest and mountain views. The primary suite on this floor has a fireplace with sitting area and office nook, as well as access to the patio. The large, deep tub holds elevated views of the mountains.
A stunning custom staircase arrives at a level with three bedrooms, a media room, and views of the mountains, as well as the graceful landscape that prevails on this oversized 2-acre private homesite.
All this in a community that Forbes calls “Possibly the best four-season community in the U.S.”
