Welcome to Chattanooga's oldest and most sought after neighborhood! Built at the turn of the century and recently renovated to impeccable standards, you'll marvel at the charm and character of this St. Elmo home - a stunning Victorian Bungalow circa 1900. Located on the corner of St. Elmo Ave and Thankful Place, you'll appreciate the views of the historic homes and churches that surround you. Enjoy the conveniences of St. Elmo's town center just .4 miles away (8 minute walk) where numerous restaurants, grocery store and shops are located. If recreation is your thing, the Guild-Hardy Lookout Mountain Trailhead is just up the street or walk to the newly extended 13 mile Riverwalk that connects to downtown Chattanooga and beyond. The current owners fell in love with the neighborhood andhome's classic features and charm. Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982, the exterior was left untouched and the interior reconfigured and brought up to today's modern standards. You'll love the wide-open living plan with hardwoods, high ceilings, decorative lighting fixtures and exposed brick chimney, which was discovered and made a focal point during the renovation. The Kitchen features all new cabinetry and appliances. A 10 foot island, solid-surface countertops, stainless KitchenAid appliances, open shelving, marble tile backsplash and commercial grade faucet. Storage isn't a problem with a pantry, built-in storage and shelves. The Dining Area is over-sized and has an original fireplace as a focal point. Near the back door entry is the Laundry (hidden behind sliding barn doors) and a half bath. Located near the front of the home, the Master Suite is stunning and very large! Similar to the main level living areas, hardwoods extend to the Master Bedroom as do the high ceilings. The Master Bath was designed to emphasize the charm of the home's history with a claw foot bath tub as a focal point, but also includes a walk-in, fully-tiled shower with seat and glass surround plus a beautiful double-sink vanity with marble top. The closet for the Master Suite is creatively hidden behind two sliding barn doors. The entire upstairs was added during the renovation and provides two bedrooms, a full bath and bonus area. Creatively designed with features that wow and surprise, there is no shortage of charm and character in this thoughtfully renovated home. One can enjoy living in a turn of the century historic home with all the benefits of a new home. The yard is one of the many features of this home with landmark trees, fenced backyard, spacious courtyard, driveway and outbuilding. A bit of history....St. Elmo, at the base of Lookout Mountain, is rich in history and was originally a community called Lookout Town - at the crossroads of two ancient Indian trails. Around the late 1890s the area saw development on the rise which was aided by the 1893 expansion of an electric trolley from Chattanooga to St. Elmo. The name "St. Elmo" was taken from a novel written by an author who had spent her summers on Lookout Mountain and found the view similar to that of St. Elmo Castle in Naples, Italy. Her book, St. Elmo, was published in 1866, and ultimately rivaled Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin in impact and influence. St. Elmo became one of the top three best-selling novels of the nineteenth century. Today, the Community Association of Historic St. Elmo (CAHSE) is committed to preserving this historic neighborhood and coordinates community-wide events. If you live in St. Elmo, you are called an "Elmoian."
