Every once in a while, a property comes along that offers a rare opportunity to own a completely custom home with a fantastic view, unique architectural details, a private setting or even a highly desirable location - this is one of those properties that has all of these wonderful characteristics and then some. Once a part of the Harrison Family Farm, this expansive cedar and stone home is perched upon a gated 1.62 +/- acre partially wooded lot overlooking the Tennessee River and located in the heart of Riverview just minutes from downtown Chattanooga, local hospitals, the North Shore, schools, parks, restaurants, shopping and the Chattanooga Golf and Country Club. The sellers have thoroughly enjoyed their time in the home and have made many updates in recent years to suit their needs buthave also tried to retain many if not all of the unique features and materials that drew them to the property in the first place, such as the beautiful teak woodwork, the Wormy Chestnut doors, the leaded glass windows, the teak and Brazilian Cherry hardwoods, slate, crab orchard and Spanish tile flooring, the hand carved elephant inspired banister, the Coca Cola and diamond themes you will see in many of the rooms, and the in-laid custom pavers throughout the driveway - just to name a few. Some of the wonderful amenities include 2 full kitchens with granite and marble countertops, a caterer's kitchen, master on the main, an elevator, a finished daylight basement with 2 separate double door entries, multiple teak decks, fantastic built-ins, an in-ground heated pool with pool house set in a tiered patio with upper level outdoor fireplace and fire pit, gorgeous stone water features and mature landscaping and a convenient generator.

Just off of the kitchen, you will find a caterer's kitchen that was once a laundry room and has another fridge, double wall ovens and a sink. The adjoining new laundry room was once part of one of two double garages that have since been enclosed and repurposed, but they could all be easily converted back to automobile garages if desired. It has a center folding island, nice cabinetry and counterspace, a set of rear steps to the basement and access to the remaining garage area that is currently being utilized for storage. The master suite is on the other end of the house off of the great room and features a large sitting room with a gas fireplace and built-ins, a double door entry to the bedroom, a large walk-in closet with organizer system, a private deck with a hot tub and fantastic views, elevator access, and separate his and her master baths.
