Why you'd want to live in Flintstone
Flintstone is a quiet community nestled between Lookout Mountain and Missionary Ridge in the Chattanooga Valley that offers a small-town atmosphere and a short commuting distance to Chattanooga. These factors are influencing the area’s increasing popularity for residents who choose to live in Northwest Georgia. Despite being minutes from downtown through St. Elmo Avenue, the area is still predominantly rural. Don’t let the low housing inventory discourage you—the area has a wide range of options. Subdivisions dot the valley, beginning with modestly sized homes in Woodburn Station just off Chattanooga Valley Road, spanning to newer and higher-end homes in Turkey Run and Stanford Place. Subdivisions closer to Rossville bordering Mission Ridge Rd offer a wider range of midcentury starter homes, including Fantasy Hills and Fox Den. If you desire a more private setting, plenty of homes with wooded lots and undeveloped land come on the market, too. Older homes exist in Flintstone closer to the state line, including bungalows similar to those in St. Elmo (often with more scenery and elbow room) and century-old farmhouses closer to High Point. Also, homes with a more rustic atmosphere are an alternative for residents not wanting the fuss of daily drive up and down Lookout Mountain. Regardless of your choice, many of the homes are complete with breathtaking views of Lookout Mountain vistas and lush greenery surrounding them. Aside from local events, Flintstone is close to many outdoor activities like hiking trails and golf courses. Other areas of interest include a wedding venue, a locally owned herb company, and Eagle’s Rest, an equestrian facility with a buffalo ranch. Aside from a variety of homes to choose from, top-notch schools, a short drive to Downtown Chattanooga with relatively low traffic, and locally owned businesses throughout, the Chattanooga Valley remains unique in the area for its laid back nature and its friendly small-town environment.
