Description for 1651 Hillcrest Rd MLS# 1258777

In the late 1800's the majestic Walnut Street Bridge was constructed connecting downtown Chattanooga to the North Shore. Chattanooga's trolley line which had miles of track downtown was extended across the Tennessee River and ended in an area called Riverview. This exclusive neighborhood began to grow and develop and in 1930 was annexed by the city of Chattanooga. Some of the families who built homes in this area founded or were affiliated with the most prominent businesses in Chattanooga e.g. Coca-Cola, Chattanooga Medicine Co, American National Bank to name a few. Over the years, Riverview developed around its anchors, the Chattanooga Golf & Country Club est.1896, the Tennessee River and Lyndhurst - a 34,000 sq ft mansion built in 1910 by John T. Lupton. The stately homes of those fortunate enough to settle the area were designed by notable architects. One such architect, Louis H. Bull, was the architect for the elegant, Georgian style home located at 1651 Hillcrest Road. This home is perfectly situated on .86 acres and has spectacular views of fairways #1 and #2 of the Donald Ross golf course below, as well as, the Tennessee River and Missionary Ridge. This solid, well-built home exudes elegance coupled with strength. To duplicate a home of this quality would cost several million dollars plus the cost of the lot. Today, Riverview has the highest concentration of the most valuable residential real estate in the city. Features include Indiana cut limestone: water table, window & door sills, steps and massive arches. Masonry - the brickwork is laid in a Flemish Bond pattern with quoined corners.
