Week 22 – #4. Architectural Details

7 Comments

I have always loved this house located at 360 S. Crest Road in Chattanooga, TN.  It is a 3-story home, has acreage, a carriage house, 7 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, and 11,000 Sq. Ft. of livable space. Built in 1894, in the 1930’s it was re-wired and received indoor plumbing. During my recent visit to Chattanooga, I discovered it had been placed on the re-sale market about a year ago but got no offers and subsequently auctioned to the highest bidder on December 15, 2016. The new owners paid $1.2 Millon for this beautiful home which had only had 3 previous owners. I was surprised at the purchase price and would have thought it would have sold for much more.  “Architectural details” like the ones this home has cannot be found today.

A true Southerner, I was born in Georgia but lived most of my adult life in Chattanooga, Tennessee. In 2001, my husband and I retired and moved to beautiful Sarasota, FL. We quickly realized that we were not retirement material and could not play golf two or three times a week so we got our real estate licenses and affiliated with Coldwell Banker on Longboat Key. My love for photography is very beneficial to me when photographing interiors and exteriors of the homes we list. Other than photography, I have a keen interest in genealogy and golf (whenever I can find the spare time from our real estate practice).

  1. I love old mansions like this. I had several around me when I was growing up. Unfortunately, so few people want them anymore; new, shiny and open floor plan replacing all the wonderful architectural details.

  2. The couple who owned the house were Dennis and Connie House Stohler. The Houses and their 4 children lived across the street for many years – Connie is the oldest of their 4 children. See her occasionally but never thought to tell her I wanted to see her house – now it’s too late!
