Called a Missionary Ridge 'homestead' by its current owner, this is a once in a lifetime living opportunity. Charming but deceptively understated from the street view, this homestead consists of a 1930s cottage charmer, with 'spot on' luxury updates in 2016 and a second guest house fronted by a swimming pool and multiple outdoor living areas - some serene and private and others fit for a large party. The homes sit on private gently sloping double lot with uninterrupted views of the city and Smoky Mountains beyond. The main home has four bedroom and 3 baths and the guest home has two bedrooms and two baths. Built in 1930 on a double lot, this 2600 sq. ft. main home has been nurtured inside and out for easy and enjoyable living. Part of the EPB Energy Upgrade Program, this home is warm in the winter and cool in the summer, with a new 4-ton Carrier unit and upgraded attic and floor insulation. This, along with LED lighting fixtures throughout the home, the electrical costs average less than $150 monthly. Newly painted, this home is move in ready. Open the door to the main residence, via the stone courtyard filled with hostas, daylilies, and daisies to a home with four sun-filled bedrooms and three tile baths. Renovated to open concept in 2016, the spacious living and unique dining area with tongue and groove ceiling; kitchen with additional counter seating; and keeping room w/ gas fireplace, built in bookcases, and French doors, are great for entertaining. The updated kitchen has granite counter tops with a custom raw edge, walk-in pantry, handcrafted kitchen island and coffee bar with maple counter tops, and new side-by-side refrigerator. On the main floor, there are two bedrooms with beautiful windows; a hall bath with tile, wainscoting and Jacuzzi tub; and a tranquil master bedroom w/ new ensuite. The very private master has walk-in his and her closets, built-in bookshelves and French doors leading to a gorgeous screened porch with cathedral ceilings stretching the full length of the house. The new ensuite has double sinks with granite countertops and a walk-in shower with white subway tile and glass shower doors. Stairs from the kitchen lead to a large renovated basement with a spacious bedroom w/ walk-in closet, full bath with original tile, sitting area and tons of closet storage. It also has a separate outside entrance, so it is great as a teenager suite or for visiting guests. The laundry is located on the lowest level of the home in the newly painted garage with finished concrete flooring, and plenty of extra space for recreational use, exercise equipment or storage. Back upstairs, cozy up in the keeping room by the fireplace or gaze out the picture window to the flowering dogwood and blooming cherry trees. Enjoy an exceptional view to the Smoky Mountains at sunrise while having your morning coffee on the screen porch and make plans to prepare dinner on the lower grilling deck. There is ample parking at the top of the lot, on the concrete driveway or under the deck. An additional stone patio located in the corner of the landscape is the best place to be as the sun sets. Follow the grass path or go down the stairs to the fenced pool house with two bedrooms and two baths. Three sets of French doors open to the concrete pool deck with an eight-ft. deep fresh water pool. The pool house, measuring 1200 sq. ft. is open concept combining a large kitchen, sitting and dining areas. There is a cozy master bedroom w/ ensuite and an additional bedroom w/ walk-in closet. A guest bath located next to the French doors allows for easy access from the pool deck. This is a great place to enjoy the summers, light the fire pit in the fall, or have holiday parties in the winter. The pool house has a two-car garage with separate street entry and parking from the main residence, so it is also a great place for the mother-in-law, extended family, or as a short term vacation rental. The current owners generate a minimum of $1,000 monthly.
