Two months have passed since my trip to Chattanooga, Tennessee and I just now realized I didn’t share all the photos of beautiful houses that I took while there. So today features a final collection of hillside homes from both Lookout Mountain and Signal Mountain. It’s a pleasant mix of small and grand homes.
One thing I absolutely must have in any home I live in, beside lots of windows, is plenty of trees in the yard. The bigger the trees, the better. The hilly regions of Chattanooga neighborhoods did not disappoint in this regard.
I think I may have missed my calling in life; I should’ve been an arborist. When I was a kid, I climbed every tree with branches low enough for me to grab onto. We had a beautiful locust tree in the backyard that I would climb almost every day in summer. I’d perch in a little v-section at the very top of the tree and watch the goings-on in the neighborhood below. It was quiet, peaceful, and away from my annoying brothers!
In addition to large trees, I also prefer neighborhoods with a variety of architectural styles. This modern style farmhouse is tucked between older homes but doesn’t look out of place. It was probably a renovation.
And as I said earlier, some of the hillside homes in this collection are grand, and some are small like these charming bungalows.
Who can resist a charming bungalow with a white picket fence? I know I can’t! This one is on Signal Mountain, which is located north of Lookout Mountain. The neighborhoods are very similar.
This gorgeous stone and stucco beauty is built on the ridge of the hillside of Lookout Mountain and enjoys amazing views.
And this charmer is tucked behind a larger home. I’m not sure if it’s a small rental home or a she shed of sorts. Either way, it enjoys a small private patio.
If you live in the south, it seems like you should have a big front porch.
Large or small, the hillside homes of Signal Mountain and Lookout Mountain are charming and livable.
