If somehow your daughter ends up being golf’s all-time best putter, you’ll have no one to blame but yourself. The lure of the greens of the acclaimed Martis Camp 18-hole Putting Course just steps from the patio is simply too great. Even phones and video games take a back seat to its pleasures, temptations rivaled only by what’s within this 3,250-square-foot home. In addition to that green ribbon of grass that doubles as your backyard, the spaciousness of this home’s open floor plan also welcomes views of Lookout Mountain. The great room with the glass doors that slide open to the terrace is centered by a fireplace that’s accented by hand-forged custom steel that runs from mantle to ceiling. This ironwork boldly appears on the staircase and deck railings as well. In the kitchen is a large counter that’s ideally suited for morning conversations over coffee and croissants and evenings of cocoa and Scrabble. Upstairs are three bedrooms, including a junior master whose deck gazes off to forest and fairway. The primary suite downstairs is warmed by an expansive fireplace and enhanced by access to the back terrace and firepit. The Victoria & Albert soaking tub goes a long way toward melting away any aches and pains that may have been earned on the slopes of Northstar California Resort.
This 4-bed, 4.5-bath home’s combination of knotty hickory alder and floors of hand-scraped hickory lend a warmth to the scene. Kitchen appliances include Wolf, Sub-Zero, and Miele. On the outdoor terrace is a sitting area, barbecue, and a fire pit that serves nicely as a place to settle into a glass of wine and watch your little girl beyond as she masters the art of reading the green.
