It’s been a while since the Gilmore Hennessy team debuted a pair of sleek, sexy condos directly across from the Choo Choo — condos I officially declared to be the sexiest on the Southside. Originally listed just shy of a million bucks, I was stunned that both properties weren’t immediately gobbled up. The fact that such sexy lofts could stay on the market that long made me question Chattanooga’s commitment to sexy. And quite frankly, my commitment to Chattanooga.
Well shut my mouth! I’m pleased to announce that after seeing a ‘pending’ sign in the window for the last couple of months, that sign has no been changed to “SOLD.” Congratulations to all those involved! To celebrate, I’ll be going to STIR for a Hemingway Daiquiri tonight. And in case you’re wondering which of the seven artisanal ice cubes STIR’s in-house ‘Ice Chef’ will hand-carving for me… the answer is pebbled!
But I digress. If I’m being totally honest with you, I can’t help but feel slightly jealous of whoever purchased that loft. I know there’s simply no way a sexy urban loft could accommodate the needs of my sprawling family in 2017. But sigh… If I was ten years younger, that condo would be all mine. But if I was ten years younger, I’d still be living in Seattle. So I guess it all worked out.
Speaking of everything working out, my oldest son (Salinger) managed to step off of the curb today without having a total meltdown. Hopefully we’re turning a corner with his curb-sensitivity issues. So maybe I’ll have a cocktail in his honor too tonight. I think an Elderflower Sour would be the perfect follow-up for my Hemingway Daiquiri. And which ice?
Long Rock, of course!
