Stacie and Greg Hadlock fell in love with Chattanooga while their daughter, Brittany, was in college here. Every time they visited from Oklahoma, they enjoyed themselves immensely. Eventually, it became apparent that Brittany was going to settle down in Chattanooga, and that was the final incentive they needed to make a home here as well. “We loved the area so much, and we wanted to be close to Brittany and her family, so in 2014 we found the perfect lot and began planning our permanent home,” Greg shares.
The plan was, and is, to grow old in this home and enjoy retirement and grandchildren. So, the Hadlocks partnered with Jack Branson of J.C. Construction, LLC to make sure this house had everything to accommodate that enjoyable lifestyle. Laid out with everything they need on one story, it’s a perfect home to entertain in and perfect to age in with ease.
For the stunning, elegant rustic exteriors, the Hadlocks chose a natural Tennessee limestone to pair with a standing seam metal roof and stained wood accents. “Everything we chose not only fit with the style we liked, which I call ‘elegant rustic,’ but also is very low maintenance with long lifespans,” Stacie explains. Greg continues, “The idea is to live here forever, so low maintenance was very appealing.”
