THIS OLD HOUSE

This Old House’s First Idea House

4 bedroom, 3 bath

TOHBambers

Bamber PHotohraphy

This Old House is nestled on evening side Early Moon Ridge.  The house overlooks an old hollow where a small seasonal creek runs along its bottom on a seasonal basis to join Mill Creek in the more distant view. Just across the creek is The Plucky Peacock, a farmstand and country store. Similar to the farm operated stores of the past, The Plucky Peacock has similar architecture and details of This Old House, creating a imagery of the old running farm.

The architecture of This Old House is Mountain Craftsman. Large stone tapered pillars yield a craftsman influence, while the tall steep pitched roof, make it mountain-esque. It was designed with a goal of proving one can live large and smartly in a smaller home. The house has a large wrap-around porch with a step down patio on the side and the back.

Main Floor

As you step throught the front door off of the wide front porch, you enter the largest room of the house. The floorpan is open and designed to maximize the laughter around the hearth. A large full masonry chimney welcomes you as you enter. The living, dining room, and kitchen are all one large gathering space, but carefully articulated to read as separate rooms.

Double french doors lead to the side porch where there are two dining areas. Below is the patio with a fire bowl and seating area. The back includes a grill area and shaded trellis to hang your ENO for a  mid-afternoon nap.

Coming back into the house from the rear, you enter the mud room and an adjoining laundry room before entering the kitchen. The mudroom and laundry room are chock full of examples of hoe to save and utilize space.

The house has two master suites with the first one on the main. This bedroom is on the front wall with a large window overlooking  the hollow below. It has and adjoining walk-in bathroom with access from both ends.

2nd Floor

On your way up the stairs to the second floor, you will find several clever niches for art and books. At the top you will arrive at a large landing area adorned with salvaged barn wood.

To the right, you have a small desk area under a window for an open space area to work. Just past this and you enter into a h cozy bedroom with twin bunks.

On the left side of the landing is a shared bathroom for this same bedroom and the loft room above.

Straight ahead in the landing area, and under a loft-ladder, and toward the front of the house, you enter into the second master suite with a large and very roomy walk-in bathroom. The view from this bedroom over the hollow is beautiful.

The Loft

Back into landing area, you can ascend the salvaged barn wood loft-ladders.  Here you will find the most cozy of spaces of the home. On one end are two twin beds, on the other end of the loft is a small play or reading area.

 


SOPHIE’S ROOST

Interiors by Tamara Dillard of Sophies in North Chattanooga

2 bedroom, 1 & 1/2 bath

Sophie’s Roost Elevation

Sophie’s Roost is one of two treehouses that can be rented at Candlelight Forest. Both treehouses have the same floorpan. The only difference is that they are flipped in orientation. Both are built on a steep slope and provide for a easy access at ground level from the front, but hang on high on trees down the slope, perching the houses high up in the canopy. The Treehouses are fully climatized and both sleep six.

The decor of Sophie’s Roost was done by the professional and talented staff of Sophie’s of the North Shore, led by the owner Tamara Dillard.  It is best described as simple and soothing with a sense of sophistication. A pleasant blue and grey persist throughout the color palette, both up stairs and down, and provide for a backdrop of interesting art and functional knick knacks them make the ambience fun and relaxing. A splendid example of how to decorate a small space.

Main

As you enter the treehouse, you come into the living area where comfort welcomes you with an upholstered sofa and chair situated with a view out a row of 6 antique windows. You are in undoubtedly in the hammock of nature.

Immediately left is a queen bed in an inglenook with a privacy curtain. Leave it open all day for a more open feel or close it for a sense of quaintness. Another door in this cozy apace leads to a full bathroom with a roomy shower. Under the loft ladder, you will find a refrigerator and microwave for your convenience. Also, a Kureig coffee pot and condiments are conveniently provided.

Through the back door and out on the back deck, our signature Canopy Kitchenette awaits. Knowing everyone loves to cookout, we have created more than just a grilling station, we have created a small outdoor kitchen.  A long concrete counter runs the depth of the porch, that includes a farm bucket for a sink, the eventual cooking gear, and plenty of preparation space. Adjoing is a high quality grill that includes a pot cooker as well.

If it rains, we have a canopy that can be quickly unfurlded and connected above head to give you a dry experience.

The Loft

Back inside and up a two tired ladder and you enter into the loft. Surprisingly roomy, the space has four twin beds, a small reading area and a 1/2 bath. The loft is just simply fun.


LE PETIT CHATEAU

Inspired by French Farm House

2 bedroom, 1 & 1/2 bath

Le Petite Chateau Elevation

Le Petit Chateau is one of two treehouses that can be rented at Candlelight Forest. Both treehouses have the same floorpan. The only difference is that they are flipped in orientation. Both are built on a steep slope and provide for a easy access at ground level from the front, but hang on high on trees down the slope perching the houses high up in the canopy. The Treehouses are fully climatized and both sleep six.

This little house is inspired by the musings of one traveling through the French countryside and stumbling on and old farm where a generous family offers lodging for the night. Designed  by one of our in-house designers, Sarah Grace Tatum, here you see examples of farm life and souvenirs of the families’ trips to Paris.  Rural greens, blues and reds are the primary colors, and elements of agrarian life nuance the decor.

Main

As you enter the treehouse, you come into the living area where comfort awaits you with an upholstered sofa and chair situated with a view out a row of five salvaged, arched windows. With this light, you are in undoubtedly in the hammock of nature. Immediately left is a queen bed in an inglenook with a privacy curtain. Leave it open all day for a more open feel or close it for a sense of quaintness. Another door in this cozy apace leads to a full bathroom with a roomy shower.
