This impressive Riverview home overlooking the Tennessee River is one of a handful of Neoclassical Revival homes still remaining in the immediate vicinity of the Chattanooga Golf and Country Club. Stretching between Hillcrest and Riverview Roads, this 1+ acre property includes the main house at just under 6,500sf with 4 Bedrooms, 5 Fireplaces, 4 Full Baths and 2 Half Baths plus a carriage house with attached garages, apartment and gardener's workshop.|| This grand home was designed by Chattanooga architect, J.D. Alsup of Adams & Alsup. A native of Memphis, Alsup came to Chattanooga in 1906 after working with renowned architect Daniel H. Burnham in Chicago. Included in Alsup's portfolio were such buildings as the Signal Mountain Hotel, the renovation of the Gordon Lee Mansion and other prominent homes in the Chattanooga area. || The architectural design of 1631 Hillcrest Road is a reflection of the Neoclassical Revival style, which became popular after the turn of the century. It's stately exterior is all brick and features such classical elements as the symmetrically balanced facade and Ionic columns. || The current owners have resided in the home since 1978 and have been careful to maintain the original integrity of the home while orchestrating necessary, but tasteful updating over the years. While the home fronts Riverview Road and the Tennessee River, the circular driveway and address is off Hillcrest Road providing two impressive "front" elevations. The grounds are impressive with mature landscaping, a rolling lawn, brick privacy wall, custom fountain on the Southeast side, numerous pathways (brick, stone or tile) that meander around the home and property. There are numerous places for outdoor respite and all are very private. An outdoor covered pavilion on the home's West side is perfect for gatherings daytime or nighttime with impressive river views. The pavilion is complete with plumbing and wiring for sound and electric. The adjacent koi pond is refreshed by a custom stone waterfall commencing on the higher end of the property. || The clay tile roof is original and the green color is believed to be the result of coloring with iron oxides. Windows have been painstakingly protected and if needed, replaced, with float glass originally used. The steel beam construction of this home is unlike today's modern wood framing. The sturdiness of this home will be seen and felt upon a tour. The mechanical systems and appliances have all been properly maintained or improved upon. There are two staircases in the home, the formal, grand staircase in the middle of the home off the Gallery and Hall and a second back staircase tucked away near the Kitchen. The grand staircase features wide steps of stunning, stained Birch with painted risers. The back staircase leads to the third level/attic and basement. || It's difficult to cover all of the engaging details of this timeless home that make it both rare and unique.
