Secluded privacy best describes this spectacular mountain retreat located in the upper corner of Northeast Tennessee. Bordering the Cherokee National Forest for over one thousand feet with a spring and steps from the Appalachian Trail make this an outdoorsman’s delight. Upon entering the forested paved drive with easy access to both the main home and log cabin on the creek you will feel as if you’ve arrived at a private refuge. Just minutes from the quaint towns of Mountain City, Abingdon and Boone, NC and yet far enough removed to absorb the feel of country living. The immaculate, well-maintained, custom crafted 4400+ sq ft main home features a bright, open floor plan with walls of windows and soaring ceilings that bring the outside in. A beautiful stack stone fireplace in the great room, chef’s kitchen with a sparkling breakfast room, formal dining room, spacious laundry room, main level master suite and an additional bedroom and full bath, as well as a screened in porch with fireplace all complete the main level. The lower level that can also serve as separate living quarters features a recreation room with wood stove, office area, full kitchen, two additional bedrooms, full bath and an exercise/playroom. In addition to the two-car detached garage with covered entry, the home is surrounded with covered porches and decking...perfect for outdoor entertaining. There is a fully-equipped, detached workshop with extra storage and RV hook-up and parking. The quaint 2 bedroom/1 bath rustic cabin with a creek running behind can serve as quest quarters or it would be ideal as an AirB&B, providing great income potential! Furnishings are negotiable. An exquisitely serene, private retreat for those who appreciate nature and enjoy outdoor recreation.
