The kids are at the Family Barn across the way, others have taken to the Cross Camp trail beyond the back yard, and here’s you with the house to yourself and the beginnings of a salad spread out on the marble counter beneath you. Carrots and cucumbers are patiently waiting for you to leave your dream state, the one that has you preoccupied by massive views of Lookout Mountain looming dead ahead, beyond the great room and back patio. Your imagination is temporarily fixed on the ski season ahead, rather than the ingredients below. That handsome mountain is on display throughout this bright, mountain modern 4-bed, 4.5-bath cabin home. The pocket doors from the great room to the south-facing patio with the panoramic fire pit provide the most impressive connection to the scene. The mountain is centerpiece to the dining room as well. The downstairs master bedroom is adjacent to a hot tub while the staircase leads to a bedroom, bunk room and small office, and a half-staircase that climbs to a glassed-in media room with balcony views of Lookout Mountain, ideal for forecasting ski conditions as well as settling into an evening of stargazing.
This 3,236-square-foot Martis Camp home sits on a scenic homesite that resides at the end of a cul-de-sac. The land immediately west is a spread of forest and trail that will remain undeveloped. Aside from the view, the kitchen’s other attributes include a large marble counter, appliances like Wolf and Sub-Zero, and a heated/covered outdoor dining cove with BBQ bay nearby. The exterior is a bold assembly of aged-wood, black metal siding and strikingly angled I beams. Landscaping is mature and tasteful, a complement to the views enjoyed from within, where dreams and mountains take precedence over carrots and cucumbers.
