THE SPARTAN AT POINT PARK • LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN, TN
Perched atop Lookout Mountain Tennessee’s most famous view, and just steps from the entrance to Point Park, The Spartan at Point Park, is a Greek Revival masterpiece named in honor of King Leonidas’s famed 300 Spartan Army, as well as for its 300 mile view.
Upon stepping into the entry vestibule, you are greeted by 13’ ceilings, a proper formal library and parlor hidden behind pocket doors, and an intricate Greek Key tile mosaic of the Spartan helmet and Leonidas’s battle cry scribed in Greek writing… “It is better to die standing than live kneeling…” One quickly realizes that this is a special place, a significant architectural achievement, all bettered by its historical location at the point of this magnificent mountain.
Five fireplaces, 4 bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms and own fireplace, private view balcony at the master, many built-ins, window seats, large captains closet in the master, dumbwaiter, period lighting and plumbing fixtures throughout, intricately trimmed out kitchen pantry under the 3-story staircase.
Inspired by the grand estates built in the old south, with detailed trim and tile work in the fashion of the historic Biltmore Estate, Asheville, N.C., The Spartan at Point Park inspires.
