Breakwater home blends views, convenience

July 15th, 2012 in Realestatenewhomes

This home in Breakwater Estates offers the privacy and lake views Hixson is known for without sacrificing convenience even to downtown Chattanooga.

Listing agent Jay Robinson of Robinson Real Estate Inc. said the house's floor plan is accented by the attention to detail evident in each of the home's updates.

Visitors are greeted at the front door by a grand staircase, whose honey-toned banister with white trim is repeated around the home's step-up and step-down living areas.

The family room features a raised fireplace and built-in, lighted wet bar. A sliding glass door leads to a screened porch.

The newly remodeled kitchen is a haven for chefs and entertainers with its Thermador induction cook top, convection wall oven, under-counter lighting and center island. Custom cool, dark wood cabinetry is made cooler still with stainless steel accents and the cherry-chocolate waves of unique Brazilian granite countertops.

A step-down breakfast area with hardwood floors and more built-in cabinetry and window seating opens through French doors to the back deck overlooking a stone pond and privacy fence.

The master suite reigns upstairs with its lush carpet and a bay window framing lake views. The master bath has Brazilian granite countertops, a porcelain tile floor, garden tub and a walk-in, tiled shower complete with a granite seat.

The other two upstairs bedrooms have walk-in closets and access to a hallway cedar storage closet, plus there's attic space to finish.

A finished daylight basement is a suite on its own with two bedrooms, a full bath, second kitchen and second family room with fireplace that opens to a lower-level patio.

Even the laundry room has granite countertops and a double sink, and most of the house's bathrooms feature comfort-height, water-efficient toilets.

The yard is lush with mature landscaping, and Robinson said the side yard could offer space to install a swimming pool.
