It Takes a Special Person to Appreciate the Craftsmanship that went into Building this 16 room Masterpiece. The historical home was designed by Allen Dryden, Sr., who designed many of Kingsport's Founding Father's homes. This home was constructed in 1929 for Dr. E. W. Tipton, a well-known physician who was the 6th mayor of Kingsport. The current owners are only the 4th family to call 1204 Watauga Street home. Some of the original features have been updated to keep pace with modern life while maintaining the home's original charm. The intricate moldings and polished hardwoods throughout the home are in pristine condition. The main level begins in an elegant entrance foyer that leads into the spacious formal living and dining rooms, remodeled kitchen, breakfast area, den, sunroom, laundry room and full bath. The seven bedrooms, 4.5 baths and office highlight the second & third levels. Old world elegance partners with modern conveniences of double hung windows, 4 HVAC zoned systems, 400 amp service, plantation shutters, custom draperies and Saltillo tile floors. All of this is complemented by 5 original fireplaces and solid brass door hardware. In the dining room, you will find built-in china cabinetry behind mirrored doors. All bedroom & bath doors are fitted with convenient full-length mirrors. You will be delighted at the abundance of closet space throughout this home. The foyer grand stairway invites you to the second level and a private back stairway for convenience. The original slate roof with copper nails and flashing bears testimony to the enduring craftsmanship of the home. Enjoyment can be had by all using the private covered breezeway, brick patio, elegantly landscaped yard and circular driveways. The adjacent garage also housed the stable for the original familyâs pony and chicken house. Being lovingly maintained and steeped in Kingsport's Heritage, makes this a truly remarkable home to call yours. All information herein deemed reliable but not guaranteed.
