Extraordinary Home of the Week

Healing Bluff

Elegance with modern design combine to create Healing Bluff-a rustic mid-century chalet recently featured in Southern Home magazine. Where stunning views of the Tennessee River Gorge vistas restore and heal the soul.



Resting at the edge of the bluff, this 6 acre Elder Mountain estate is surrounded by mountain laurel, immense moss-covered boulders and two streams offering total privacy.



Designed by the renowned Chattanooga architect, Klalus-Peter Nentwig, this incredible home has two stories of towering glass that frame amazing sunsets. This mountain home’s stacked stone fireplace and wood ceilings offer an organic yet modern element as well.



The sleek contemporary kitchen features mid-century reproductions, luxury appliances, designer fixtures and an exquisite selection of marble to serve as the focal point.


A main level master retreat with study provides expansive views and offers complete and luxurious privacy.



Among the many noted features of this property are the multi-purpose rooms with serene views;  the 24′ vaulted ceiling; the spiral staircase leading to the upper loft and bridge walk; media room; terrace level private quest suite; porte cochere; heated in-ground pool and tennis court, just to name a few.

Healing Bluff is located in a private, gated community that nurtures a sense of seclusion yet is only minutes from downtown Chattanooga where you can take in all the conveniences of city living. From the rustic California redwood cedar exterior to the understated glamour inside, there is remarkable attention to detail throughout…one you truly have to experience.

Contemporary Style

The contemporary home label has evolved from recent types of home design which vary in style. Connecting the indoor with the outdoor is a common application with the contemporary home as well as the use of sustainable materials such as wood coupled with natural light.  Creating a clean line while maintaining a bright and inviting space is the magic of the contemporary home and develops a space that is both beautiful and pleasing.
