This is the fifth personal home and a labor of love for respected Chattanooga builder Jim Humphrey with his wife Charlotte as inspiration, designer and frequent interior painter. 4012 Obar Drive in Chattanooga's Black Creek is the epitome of a modern luxury home. Overlooking the 2nd hole at the acclaimed Black Creek golf course and surrounded by mountains, the home is a stunning testament to today's best trends in modern luxury living. A smaller footprint of exceptionally well designed space in which every square inch is used and finished to perfection. Technology, outdoor living spaces, purposeful design and features and luxury amenities combine to create a truly exceptional luxury lifestyle.Built in 2014, the 4700 sq. ft. 3 BR+ flex room with a closet (which can be called into duty as a 4th bedroom) and 3.5 baths is definitely much, much more than the sum of its parts. Open cased openings, hand stained hardwoods, and tongue and groove ceilings throughout the home are just the starting point. The kitchen like the rest of the home is open and pristine with a 12 foot long custom pine island that fairly gleams with coats of marine spar stain making it impervious to water and virtually anything else. Cabinetry that was custom specified to be deeper to accommodate four rows of glasses and large "chargers" is indicative of having a builder who listens to his knowledgeable wife. That sentiment is fully evidenced by the pantry achieved by bumping out the back wall of the kitchen during construction to create a private space that runs the entire width of the kitchen and is accessed by a custom door finished in the same manner as the cabinetry. Inside are floor to ceiling shelves, pot hangers, and the tech center for Sonos music system, security cameras, Wi-Fi and more. All the small appliances and microwave have designated places. The result is the "public" kitchen remains pristine, clutter free and immaculate. Ideal in an open design home. The kitchen has all Thermador appliances with two ovens one standard and one small. Both the refrigerator and dishwasher have custom cabinetry front panels. The six burner gas stove has a griddle and is topped by a stove hood with heat lamps. Typhoon Bordeau granite tops the cabinets and crackle soft white subway tile comprises the kitchen back splash. This same level of detail and thought is evidenced in every room and every aspect of the home. Without writing a very lengthy diatribe, it is impossible to detail every unique feature of this home, but here are some highlights: Two outdoor livings spaces overlooking the golf course and mountains. The upper covered porch with stone walls and columns runs the length of the home and has the same tongue and groove ceiling featured inside and Brazilian Ipe hardwood decking. The porch has an outdoor kitchen with a griddle and Sedona by Lynx grill. A focal point is a spa like totally enclosed stone outdoor shower room with a repurposed rough-sawn custom door. The outdoor porch also features a stone wood burning fireplace with gas starter, sitting area and private sanctuary area with a container garden. The entire outdoor living area looks out to the golf course and mountains beyond. The home has a park like fenced back yard with a carpet of zoysia grass and lush perennial landscaping. The lot line extends beyond the fence with areas for additional gardens and ensures the view will always remain unobstructed. There are two laundry rooms one on the main level and an additional one on the lower level. With the Master Suite and all main rooms on the main level, the lower level can essentially function almost independently with its own laundry room, entertainment kitchen and storage room with custom cabinetry, family room, two bedrooms, flex/office space with closet and two full baths. Because of its custom design, many items remain with the house including all appliances, two high efficiency washer and dryers, two under counter refrigerators, security cameras and monitors, whole house Sonos music system, custom color matched plantation shutters and all mounted televisions. All the tech systems can be operated through phone apps. The builder/owners have built or remodeled five homes in the past 15 years learning and perfecting with each experience and cite this home as their best so far. The Humphreys are ready to move to their next labor of love and pass 4012 Obar Lane to its next extremely lucky owners.
