For $2.45M, a Castle Worthy of a Thomas Kinkade Painting

New, 8 comments


On the market for $2.45M, this 7,470-square-foot "majestic castle" in Chattanooga, Tenn., offers the rare chance to own a home that looks like it's straight out of the invariably—well, almost invariably—bucolic world of artist Thomas Kinkade, he responsible for saccharine images of cottages aside babbling brooks and flourishing flora. This particular 1923 abode sits atop Elder Mountain and was built entirely out of native rock and White Oak timber sourced from the mountain itself, giving the place a (very, very large) cabin feel. The interiors are equally twee, offering exposed stone walls, oak vaulted ceilings, six grand bedrooms, and a seemingly Pinterest-inspired decorating scheme that's almost aggressively homey. Also on the property? A restored stone observation tower which is said to "offer a wide panorama that encompasses views from four states—Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama and North Carolina." Do have a look:
