Featured Chattanooga Neighborhood: Reunion


There's a lot of factors to consider when you choose a neighborhood. There's the style of home you want, and the kind of lifestyle you want to live. There's the shops you go to, the restaurants you eat at, and where you work. There's your budget, and where your friends and relatives are settled. It's not always easy to find the perfect place.

That's where planned neighborhoods like Reunion come in handy. Reunion offers the hip neo-Craftsman style favored in more urban areas like Jefferson Heights, but in new, planned neighborhoods that aren't still in the process of revitalization. It's a great choice for those who want a more historic feel to their home and neighborhood while still enjoying all the suburban conveniences like proximity to shopping, restaurants, grocery stores, and excellent schools. In Reunion's case, it's smack dab in the middle of East Brainerd, only a short drive from major new job creators like Volkswagen and Amazon. It's a win-win for the latest in architectural trends and modern convenience.

Many parents who would be attracted to the historic homes and tight-knit neighborhood associations of Chattanooga's transitional areas choose planned neo-historical options like Reunion for the sake of their kids. One local Chattanoogan who recently purchased a home in Reunion after several years in Highland Park wrote, "The neighborhood has a great “community vibe” and it looks like something out of a movie during a Sunday drive.  Families raking leaves, children riding bikes, nothing out of place..." If this sounds like your ideal combination, consider buying a home in Reunion!
