Contemporary lake home is nature retreat

This '60s era contemporary lake home evokes many of Frank Lloyd Wright's designs with its low-slung architecture that is at one with its natural surroundings.

The 5 bedroom, four and a half bath, 6,100-square-foot home quintessentially "retro cool" home offers banks of wood casement windows in virtually every room and 2,100 square feet of new outdoor decking punctuated with contemporary stainless steel cable railings.

"The view and the lake are fully integrated into both the custom design and lifestyle afforded by this 'rustic modern' home," said listing agent Gina Sakich, broker with Real Estate Partners Chattanooga LLC.

Adjacent to 228 acres of TVA property, "this home is a nature retreat with wildlife, including eagles, crane and deer making frequent guest appearances," reported Sakich. Scarlett's Kitchens created the updated kitchen, which features a custom-designed granite island created from one enormous granite slab. Brazilian cherry cabinets with stainless steel pulls and an Italian porcelain floor complete the gourmet kitchen stocked with KitchenAid appliances.

Four bedrooms including the large master suite and master bath are found on the main level. The lower level has a large, open room, mountain stone gas fireplace, a second kitchen and bedroom suite. This perfect in-law or teen suite has a separate entrance, spectacular lake views and looks out on 1.8 acres and a large flagstone patio with a hot tub. With an irrigation system sourced by lake water, it is easy and cost effective to maintain the expansive grounds, mature trees and landscaping. The manicured lawn rolls out to greet the lake and private dock. A wrought iron fence surrounds the property and a separate two-story guest house provides a lower level four-car garage with a guest one bedroom, one bath apartment on the upper level.

Located in Hixson on prestigious Clematis Drive, this tree-lined drive is home to some of the most beautiful lakefront luxury properties in the area.
