Built in 1898, this Arts and Crafts Tudor Style house boasts a rich history as one of the first homes built on Lookout Mountain's eastern brow. Richard L. Watkins, owner of Lookout Mountain Company, developed the mountain and chose this location as the site for his home. He commissioned architect Dan C. Reamer to design it and enhance the luxury of stunning views: The river, the valley, distant mountains, and today, the sparkling lights of Chattanooga. Reamer's firm was best noted for creating Yellowstone's Old Faithful Inn. The house is perfectly oriented on approximately .75 acre with a lovely multilevel back yard, lush gardens, and impressive rock formations that lead to hidden stairs and access to a surprise bluff-side retreat. Steps and paths guide the way through rock formations
