Welcome to 1407 Mississippi Avenue, your new haven in the sought-after Fairhills neighborhood of Riverview. This beautifully renovated bungalow has been meticulously reimagined, essentially reborn from the ground up. With 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, and a spacious downstairs den that could easily serve as a 4th bedroom, this bungalow offers a surprisingly spacious living experience.

Structurally, this home has undergone a comprehensive transformation, including almost complete reframing, fresh insulation, a brand-new architectural shingle roof, and pristine siding. The plumbing has been entirely replaced, from the main line into the home to the sewer line exiting it. The electrical service, wiring, and electric panel have been similarly updated. Even the windows have been upgraded to high-efficiency composite models, thoughtfully designed to match the original grid pattern of the home.

The mechanical updates are equally impressive, featuring a new HVAC unit for the main level, all-new ductwork, a mini-split unit for the downstairs, and an efficient tankless gas water heater. Inside, you'll find fresh drywall, newly finished hardwood floors, period-appropriate craftsman trim, top-notch plumbing and light fixtures, and luxurious finishes throughout.

Approaching the home, you'll be greeted by a welcoming flagstone walkway leading to the newly designed front porch. The attention to detail is evident, with cedar shake shingles in the gables, matching corbels, and weather-resistant cement-fiber siding. The craftsman-style wood front door adds a touch of classic charm. Step inside to discover an open-concept living space with a fireplace framed by a marble tile surround and hassle-free gas logs. The mantle is a reclaimed beam from the original home, flanked by stunning casement windows. The living space seamlessly flows into the remodeled kitchen and dining area, basking in natural light that highlights the deep craftsman window sills. The kitchen offers modern amenities, including a spacious peninsula, custom cabinetry, KitchenAid appliances, and a butler's nook with shelves salvaged from the original home.

The master suite, boasting two walk-in closets, leads to a master bathroom with custom cabinetry, quartz counters, a deep soaking tub, a separate water closet, and a glass-walled walk-in shower with double shower heads. Two additional bedrooms share a generously sized Jack & Jill bathroom. A laundry/mud room with its own exterior door and a powder room with custom wainscoting are conveniently located on the main level.

Downstairs, a versatile space can serve as a secondary living area, a den, or a fourth bedroom, and it's professionally waterproofed. Unlike many older homes in North Chattanooga, 1407 Mississippi provides ample interior storage space.

A detached 36' x 24' garage with new doors and motors offers additional storage and convenience. The property is fenced for privacy on the alley side, and professional landscaping with lush sod surrounds both the home and the garage.

Riverview is a highly desirable neighborhood known for its family-friendly atmosphere and walkability. Zoned for award-winning Normal Park schools, this home is in proximity to GPS and the Bright School. You're just a short walk from Riverview shops and some of Chattanooga's finest dining options. Plus, you're close to the Chattanooga Golf and Country Club, Riverview Park, and the scenic Tennessee River.
