Chattanooga house description

This turn of the century mansion is located on the square in historic Chickamauga, Georgia. Chickamauga is a charming and historic small town that has this property at its root. We are located just a 20 minute drive from scenic Chattanooga. From our front door you have the convenience of walking down the tree-lined drive into our wonderful small town, full of antique and gift shops and restaurants. Also, in five minutes you can become immersed in the beauty of Chickamauga Battlefield. A short drive into Chattanooga affords you all that this renaissance city has to offer including the Tennessee Aquarium and the riverfront areas.

Our Greek Revival home, built in 1912, is surrounded by four and a half acres of manicured grounds featuring flowering cherry, tulip, magnolia and dogwood trees with beautiful centuries-old oaks and hardwoods. You can rest on the front porch or walk around the grounds, relaxing in the sitting areas mingled amongst the grounds. Six additional wooded acres in the back of the property offer privacy and seclusion.

Coming up to the front of the house, you'll step up to the rocking chair porch and step back into time through the elegant foyer with nine foot tall pocket doors. Eleven foot ceilings and three-part Palladian windows stretch throughout the house. Antique mantles, Venetian chandeliers and beautiful decor and furnishings are all part of the timeless charm of this property.

The D.A. Jewell House is a wonderful place for a weekend getaway, vacation or family reunion. This property can serve many needs and provide space to make wonderful memories. You will love the handsome furnishings, the elegant and luxurious bedding, linens and towels. There is a sunroom upstairs and downstairs, a library and four separate TV viewing areas (one is in the pool house). There are two media rooms, one upstairs and one downstairs, offering HD television and blu-ray disc.

The pool and pool house are great sources of fun in the summertime. The pool house has a fully equipped kitchen, furnishings, TV and a bar with marble countertop. Just outside the barroom is a wooden deck with a large gas grill and picnic tables. The six wooded acres behind the pool house provide a further buffer, making the pool house and surrounding grounds a quiet, peaceful place of solace year-round for meditation and reflection.

                  Owner info

                  Why the Owner Chose Chattanooga:
                  This is a family owned property - well loved and well maintained. It has had only two owners and our mom passed it down to us. The house is full of places for gathering together and having time alone. The grounds are like your own spacious park. And the pool and pool house provide wonderful space for having memorable fun, entertainment and rest. Close to all the wonderful amenities of Chattanooga we have the best of both worlds. The town is welcoming and a great place for families. The natural spring across the street is a wonderful place for relaxing and feeding the ducks and geese. Bicycling and walking are daily activities on our well maintained streets and sidewalks.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The D.A. Jewell House was built in 1912. You can sit on the huge rocking chair front porch, relax in the library, have meals in the beautiful dining room or by the pool. The house falls naturally into four suites and the 6 bedrooms and baths provide ample room for families to gather, friends to get away together, or for retreats. There aren't many places where 16 people can stay together and comfortably enjoy individual and group space.
