2019 // Hixson

Did You Know?

In the early 1900s, members of the Hixson community rarely traveled to Chattanooga. At the time, Hixson Pike was a two-lane, tar-and-gravel road, and the trip was quite time-consuming!   

Between its numerous shopping centers, medical facilities, and schools, as well as housing boasting privacy and scenic views, Hixson offers the best of urban and rural living.


Real Estate

Whether seeking acreage, ridge views, or a lakefront property, Hixson has both new and recently renovated homes that fit the bill. Neighborhoods like Old Stage Run, Ramsgate, Bay Pointe/Marina Cove, Breakwater Estates, Valleybrook, and Hidden Harbor feature single-family homes that take advantage of the natural beauty of the Hixson area. The Canyons at Falling Water, Boulder Pass at the Canyons, Sedman Hills, Stonewall Farms, and Amber Brook Gardens are examples of planned communities that offer a variety of home designs and price tags. Hixson’s newest community, Amber Ridge, offers homesites tucked away from the bustle of the city.
