The land is on the east brow of Lookout Mountain with an east-southeast view over Shinbone Valley with the home at approximately 1,000 feet above the valley. The land has a major portion that is flat on the west end of the property and slopes downward to the valley at the east side. The entire property is covered with mature hardwood trees.

Screened Porch

The large screened in the porch off the kitchen through French doors measures 12’x30’ feet with a metal roof and natural slate tile floor. The porch provides access to the back of the garage and to the main back deck area. The porch has three ceiling fans with light fixtures along with electrical outlets on all four walls. The porch was designed to take advantage of the thermal breezes coming up from the valley as they pass by the south side of the home.
