Single Family Detached
'Gateway to the Cherokee National Forest.''The rustic elegance of this post and beam home awaits you. Surrounded by mountains, woods, fields, and streams, take in commanding views of 3 States from your oversized windows. This absolutely has it all. Located in Tellico Plains, a town with an active community of both new and longtime residents working to preserve its small town charm and emphasize its outdoor culture. While Downtown is only 6 miles away, Tellico Plains is a nationally designated ''Trail Town'' with many hiking and horse trails, as well as kayaking areas. The Tellico River is a recognized hot spot for fly fishing. Tellico Plains is still considered to be an "undiscovered gem" due to its natural beauty as well as excellent proximity to Atlanta, Chattanooga, Knoxville, etc, but its desirability is quickly being recognized, and continues to grow. The Cherohala Skyway from Tellico Plains, TN to Robbinsville, NC is gorgeous. Escape the busy city and get true rest and relaxation. The 196 acre property features a main home, a detached garage featuring a full guest house, an RV port with double sets of full hook ups and water, and a barn with a large loft that is constructed with the quality and durability to become another guest house. The main home is constructed with post and beam, sourced from the finest custom sawmills in the country. A wrap-around covered porch allows you to extend your living space outdoors. The flooring throughout the house is equally high quality reclaimed barn wood, tile, and slate. The great room features a large, high efficiency fireplace. The centerpiece of the large, open kitchen is the Viking Professional Range, fitted with commercial exhaust hood. A good size mudroom is just off the kitchen with access to outside. An elevator shaft for future to put in an elevator (as one is not installed) set up just off the great room provides easy access to the basement. Two guest rooms on the main level are served by beautiful guest bathroom featuring tigerwood countertops. The generously sized master bedroom features an equally grand bath, where you can enjoy soaking in the tub by a warm fire. The large shower is completely open, giving you the ability to step right through. An exterior door provides quick access from the outdoor living space on the covered porch. The basement is a full walkout that is partially finished. It houses an amazing entertainment room and a full service bar. Ladder-like stairs take you to a well-designed loft, which would provide a great work space. The loft also provides access to tons of walk in storage. The main home already has so much to offer, with additional space to finish in the basement. The RV port has clear inside dimensions of 18' x 50' and can accommodate a Prevost bus comfortably. It has two 50-amp services and two water connections (that is, it can set up 2 RVs). Its post and beam construction coordinates perfectly with the home. It has a finished wood ceiling with recessed can lighting. It is structurally very solid, and can easily be enclosed for multiple uses. The barn is a 2-story, 36' x 50' bank barn with a cantilevered window bump-out upstairs. Roof is 30-year architectural shingles to match the home, plus metal roof accents. Total square footage is 1,800 downstairs + 1,836 upstairs = 3636 total sf. Structurally you can drive vehicles and trailers upstairs. Upstairs has 12'-high doors with cathedral ceiling, open floor (no columns), loft on one end, and designed and built to specs to provide options for multiple uses, including possible conversion to a residence. Downstairs is clear 9' height with 5 stalls opening both to the aisle and outside through Dutch doors to a covered shed area, H&C wash station, tack and feed room, office, storage, and 12-foot center aisle. Of the 196 acres, approximately 25 acres are fenced pasture. Another 15 acres of pasture across the creek are already fenced along the road on 2 sides, with the 3rd side of the triangle adjacent to the creek ready to be fenced for animals. An additional 10 - 15 acres are unfenced pasture. Total is 50 - 55 acres in grass. The detached garage is 26' x 42', totaling 1,092 sf. It has 3 oversized 10'-wide doors. Upstairs, the guest house 1,052 s.f is finished into a 2BR, 1BA, full kitchen and Living Room. Access to the guest house is provided by paths on either side of the garage, and the covered entrance extends off a nice deck on the back side of the garage. This is truly a stunning country estate. This property has so much to offer, and is waiting to become your private retreat. This property has over 3 miles of trails and land for developing more trails. The sellers are willing to divided the land into a smaller section should the buyer prefer less land at a lower price. Call for a private tour.
