Harrison home delivers best of waterfront living

July 8th, 2012 in Realestatenewhomes

This Harrison home, located at 8112 Pierpoint Drive in Island Point Estates on Chickamauga Lake, combines the best of luxury and waterfront living.

"This lakefront estate home is a rare find and an outstanding value," said listing agent Gina Sakich of Real Estate Partners Chattanooga LLC. The home's panoramic water and mountain views are "glorious," she said, and its year-round water access is enhanced even more by lavishly designed and landscaped outdoor entertaining spaces including decks and patios, plus a large in-ground heated pool.

Sakich describes the home's stucco and mountain stone facade as "architecturally stunning," surrounding a double-door entrance under a columned portico.

Inside, the great room's cathedral ceiling and roofline windows guarantee a cheerful setting while the formal dining room is surrounded by windows on three sides and opens to a deck overlooking the pool, patio, boathouse and big expanse of water beyond.

A grand staircase separates the open great room and gourmet kitchen, all trimmed in warm wood. The kitchen's custom cabinets and box beam ceiling set just the right tone for a weekend of entertaining, and the double oven, gas range, separate ice machine, prep sink and casual dining nook make hosting summertime gatherings a cinch.

In close proximity to two guest rooms and a full bath, the family room and fitness room are basked in the glow of a gas fireplace < one of three in the home. Pool and patio access make this corner of the home getaway-ready.

The home's private, covered boathouse is topped with a distinctive cupola and weathervane, easy to spot from the water. Waterfront living is made better by the property's two boat lifts, floating dock and fish-cleaning station.

"There is no better time of the year than right now to fully experience luxury lakefront living in this casually elegant executive home," Sakich said.
