Natural Beauty

Some homes have a view, but this home atop a ridge is lucky enough to have two – one of Lookout and Signal Mountains, and another that, on a clear day, can see all the way to the Great Smoky Mountains. Architect Jay Caughman worked with the homeowners to create a natural outdoor oasis amid the treetops. Inspired decades ago by a photo of the Post Ranch Inn in Big Sur, California, the homeowners knew that an infinity pool would be the focal point of the outdoor space. Natural trees and foliage provide for shade and beauty, and other natural elements such as red brick and grey stone create a timeless feel. A fully equipped outdoor summer kitchen, a nearby screened-in porch, and a cozy outdoor fireplace make this backyard perfect for a family of two or a gathering of dozens.
