There’s an island of sorts upstairs, a quiet, energizing pocket of peace that tempts to you to grab a book, a blanket, a mug of morning coffee or glass of afternoon cab, and settle into a stretch of solitude beside the large rock fireplace that gazes off to Lookout Mountain. In a matter of a minute or so, this deck with peaked eaves will usher you a million miles away from any antics taking place in the media room and bunk room down the hall. That sense of escape and energy is evident the moment one opens the front door and encounters a great room with large fireplace, towering, custom-trussed ceilings, and accordion doors that open the home to a patio with stunning views of Lookout Mountain, a hot tub, firepit, barbecue bay, and a covered/heated dining area. This 3,249-square-foot Martis Camp home’s kitchen, with its vast breakfast counter, pantry, and charming corner stove, commands a view of this great room as well as the dining room before it. Left of the kitchen and down a flight of stairs is a room ideally suited for becoming a theater, wine cellar, art studio or gym. Left of the great room is the master suite with rock fireplace and access to the patio with sweeping views.
Details of this 4-bed/4.5-bath home are impressive. Hardwood floors run throughout this home while cabinets are Alder, counters are Granite, and appliances include stellar brands like Viking, KitchenAid and Sharp. Just beyond the trees at the edge of this property is a path leading to the Family Barn.
Upstairs is the domain of bedtime stories with a bunkroom, bedroom, the media room overlooking the great room, and – on the far side of the open-air bridge – a spacious bedroom with fireplace and private deck. Not to be forgotten is that deck that doubles as a pocket of solitude that, like an old Labrador, is always there for you…and your book, and your blanket and your well-earned glass of Cabernet.
