Description

Located in the exclusive Elder Mountain community in Chattanooga, TN, this 26.5 +/- acre estate boasts approximately 1,078 +/- feet of brow frontage overlooking the Tennessee River Gorge, Prentice Cooper State Forest and the protected lands of the Tennessee River Gorge Trust. The stunning home was designed with these breathtaking views in mind by world renowned architect Hugh Newell Jacobsen who has also designed homes for Jackie Kennedy Onassis in Martha's Vineyard, Meryl Streep, James Garner, and Rachel ''Bunny'' Mellon. Noted civic works include the west terrace addition of the Capitol, as well as the Moscow residence of the United States ambassador to Russia - just to name a few. The Mills home is a ''secret Jacobsen'' as the owner did not want the home or its whereabouts to be knownduring her lifetime. True to Jacobsen's signature aesthetic, the home features pitched rooflines which provide dramatic vaulted ceilings, clean modern lines, and both functional and artful use of windows and lighting. Jacobsen's work marries classical forms with modern aesthetic and function- classical pavilions of brick, stone and oak meet steel, glass and concrete in harmony. Atop its aeire, the home fans along the bluff; Jacobsen's pavilions each capture a different perspective of the River Canyon. The end result is a home that is a truly a significant work of art and engineering. The attention to detail, flexible floor plan and exquisite finishes will impress, as will the indoor lap pool and spa, multiple outdoor living spaces - all with panoramic views. The lushly landscaped grounds offer several gardens, including an English courtyard garden, an extensive kitchen garden and flower gardens, espaliered fruit trees, as well as a fruit orchard with of early American heirloom fruit trees designed by renowned orchard designer Thomas Burford. The gated entry provides additional privacy and security. Whether you are looking for an exceptional primary residence just 15 minutes from downtown Chattanooga or private retreat close to Nashville, Knoxville or Atlanta, then please call for additional information and to schedule your private showing of this exceptional property. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed. Buyer to verify any and all information they deem important. (Pictures by photographer Maxwell MacKenzie.)
