A Mediterranean estate in the heart of Riverview has sold for $2,250,000.

Russell and Kate Jones made the sale to David and Lea Anne Wiles.

The house at 1309 Woodhill Dr. had never been on the market previously and had only a handful of owners in its 91-year history.

It includes five bedrooms, 5.5 baths and 6,500 square feet on a 3.29-acre lot.

The home was further described on Realtor.com:

"This architectural masterpiece has handcrafted finishes and attention to detail seldom seen in the Chattanooga area. Some of the incredible features include original tile floors, decorative arched doorways and solid wood doors, period lighting, stained glass windows, hand painted trim and wood beams, a concrete sweeping staircase, dental and crown molding, specialty ceilings, 2 gas fireplaces, updated kitchen with a separate butler's kitchen, a dining room that can accommodate the largest of gatherings, built-in closets and armoires in every bedroom, hardwoods throughout the second level, multiple outdoor living spaces, a double attached basement garage and detached double carport with gate house.

"Everywhere you look, you will be amazed at how the design themes flow from room to room and delight in each new discovery as you tour the home. The exterior features are equally impressive, especially the intricate copper downspouts, the clay tile roof, the many windows and doors, stone patios and double staircases in both front and back, and the lovely paths that meander among the grounds where you will find gorgeous green space, wooded privacy and fanciful Spring blooms - truly a very special property."
