Hey!!! I live about 5 minutes from downtown and about 15 mins from the Chattanooga airport. Our house has high ceilings downstairs and is pretty spacious. The house is newly rebuilt so everything is like new or in very good shape. We are not in the best neighborhood but we've never had any problems and do have an alarm system. Two small dogs live with us and are kept upstairs. They do bark but settle down shortly. Honestly, this is my dream house and I'm sure you'll love it!!
