I’ve taken you on some pretty awesome home tours here at Between Naps on the Porch but the home we are touring today is definitely one of my all time favorites. It’s truly a dream home, each room embraces you with beauty, warmth and personality. As if that wasn’t enough, it’s located on six acres atop Elder Mountain in Chattanooga, Tennessee with unbelievable killer views!
The views from the home are just beyond description, they will absolutely take your breath away.
The home was built in 1923 and includes a completely restored 60 foot stone observation tower. From the top of the tower you can see four states: Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama and North Carolina!
The materials used to build the home were sourced from the mountain itself. Even the timber in the home came from local White Oak forest. Does this not look like a storybook home?
Let’s go inside and take the tour!
Such a dramatic entry filled with old world charm.
Love all the stone work!
This lovely seating area in the entry is just a hint of the warmth you’ll find in every room of this home. Look at all the arched doorways! ♥
This is such a gorgeous room…I think it’s my favorite of all the rooms in the home.
Look at all that wonderful molding!
A beautiful light-filled kitchen with lots of open and glassed cabinetry.
Love this kitchen!
Not sure what this room would be called…maybe a keeping room or a family room since it’s right off the kitchen.
Wonder if this is the master bedroom and I wonder if they eat breakfast here sometimes on the table located in the bay area.
It appears every bedroom has a wonderful view.
A fourth bedroom…so many beautiful rooms, all cozy and welcoming!
The study…love this room, too! Are you tired of hearing me say that? I can’t help it, I love them all!
If you can force yourself to leave these beautiful rooms, this is the view that awaits you outside.
Just imagine all the sunsets…my heart would be breaking every night at so much beauty!

Hope you enjoyed the tour of this storybook home. I would so buy it in a heartbeat if I had the funds.
