Description

Attractively refurbished, with all systems updated and well maintained by the current owners, 1706 W. 42nd St. is ready for the next chapter in its history.Its past may be hidden in the years that have passed since its construction in 1925 but its heart of pine flooring, stone fireplace and period molding tell a story of family life here through the decades.Sited on a rare triple lot comprising nearly an acre, the house looks out on Hawkins Ridge, with views of the downtown that make watching July 4th fireworks from the wide front porch a summer treat. Dogwoods, maples and chestnut oaks surround the house, with ample lawn and garden areas in the front and back.Inside is a large kitchen with adjoining utility room, an open plan dining/living area, a bonus room currently used as a den, two bedrooms and a tiled bathroom with double shower off the hallway.As configured, this charming house is a great fit for a couple or small family. Or the next owners may choose to expand and remodel to suit their needs and tastes.A 350 sf detached studio offers additional options. Currently used as an art studio, the space could be transformed into an ADU, with city water access a few feet behind the structure. There is already electricity and the roof and gutters were replaced in 2020.The property offers a unique blend of urban convenience and park-like privacy in the heart of historic St. Elmo. Stroll a few short blocks to the restaurants, shops and grocery stores in the village. It's also less than a mile to the St. Elmo Post Office, the South Chattanooga Recreation Center (with indoor pool) and the excellent South Branch Chattanooga Library.The popular Guild Trail walk/bike path is just behind the house, where Ochs Highway offers quick access to Lookout Mountain. And Chattanooga's downtown is only three miles away.Come see all the possibilities and options this comfortable home and its idyllic setting have to offer today.
