This home shares something in common with the Sistine Chapel: eyes instantly go skyward, toward a ceiling that’s a stunning work of art. While Michelangelo worked in water-based paint, this home’s architect — Sandbox Studio — used iron and wood, bending both in an elegant flow that leads your eye toward the generous windows framing Lookout Mountain. The great room is not the only place where curves and awe come into play. There’s a staircase that spirals toward an intimate third-story study in the turret, passing a second story with a bunkroom, guest master suite and a craft/media room with its own deck and barn door windows opening to the living room and kitchen below. Downstairs, the large kitchen with the spacious pantry gracefully connects to the living room and the patio with inspiring views of Lookout Mountain. A glass hallway bridge leads to the master suite with grand fireplace, deck and hot tub.
This 4-bed, 3.5 -bath, 4,047-square-foot home is warm, comfortable and bright and accentuated by appliances as impressive as the home. Throughout the home are radiant heat, reclaimed oak floors. Doors and cabinets are alder, counters are granite, and the ceiling that steals our eyes is California incense cedar. Nearby are some of Martis Camp’s top draws, including the Springs Pavilion and the Tennis Pavilion.
