When it comes to luxury living, the Scenic City provides the perfect backdrop. With such an affordable luxury market compared to other cities, many are looking to call Chattanooga their new home for living the good life.

“Whether on the water, on the brow, in the forest or downtown, [Chattanooga] is a rich, natural beauty,” said local Realtor Grace Frank, who specializes in luxury properties.

She manages the website, which allows buyers and sellers alike to view all listings priced at more than $500,000, the typical price point to label a property as “luxury,” according to Frank.

Having previously lived in Boulder, Colo.; Naples, Fla.; and Houston, Texas, she said the Chattanooga luxury market is very reasonable. “The price point in those areas was two to three times the price here in Chattanooga,” said Frank. In addition to price point, there are many other components that are important when considering a property in the “luxury” category.

“Location — such as brow view, lakefront and city view — features are key,” she explained. Frank’s luxury properties include waterfront homes as well as homes with unique attributes such as historical and new construction that is tailored for the buyer. Home finishes and design features are also among the top qualifiers for luxury properties, she added. “The home’s finishes and property landscaping are two great areas to consider when sellers want to up their game and market their home as a luxury property,” said Frank. “High-end kitchens as well as luxurious spa-feeling master suites can go a long way.”

One of Frank’s luxury listings boasts both of these features, giving it great luxury appeal, she said. The home, at 9204 Rocky Cove Drive in Mountain Shadows, offers a split-bedroom plan with an oversized master suite that includes its own full brick fi replace, while the bathrooms impress with features such as a bidet, jetted tub, separate shower, separate vanities and a walk-in closet.

Backyard and outdoor entertaining spaces create a rich, luxury feel as well for many homes. For example, Frank’s listing at 7518 Short Tail Springs Road offers a fenced yard, patio, in-ground saltwater pool and a tennis court, all of which give this property a luxury edge.
