140 BAYE ROAD ∙ RUTLEDGE ∙ OFFERED AT $849,900

NEW construction at Cherokee Lake! Completion scheduled in time for Thanksgiving.

Looking for a home that is lake front? Check! Dockable? Check! Extremely level and accessible? Check! The home is at the mouth of a Cherokee Lake cove with 111 feet of seasonal lakefront access.  Since it is at the mouth of a lake cove you will typically have water lapping your backyard from spring to fall. You can also have a boat dock on this lot. What does that mean? On a lot of TVA controlled lakefronts, Cherokee Lake included, TVA will not grant you a permit to build a dock. Here you can.

A beautiful modern farmhouse style design with board and batten Hardi board siding, accented with stacked stone throughout the home’s exterior. Hardi siding is made of a composite of cement, sand, and cellulose fibers and can resist fire, pests, and rot. At 1,960 square feet on the main level, the plan is a great size for any family. PLUS, there is also over 1,900 square feet of a walk-out basement. The basement has nine-foot walls and an abundance of windows with its own entry door. The basement is unfinished but has already been plumbed for an extra bathroom. If you choose, you can have it fully completed for an additional fee, or complete part of it, or do it later. Or choose to do what a lot of families have done, leave it as is. Use it as a low maintenance recreation space, work area, or as a space for ample storage. Your call. Add all this square footage up and you’re looking at just under 4,000 square feet of living space.

Just inside the home, you’ll walk into a large great room that is warmed by an electric fireplace. No gas fumes or logs to stain the walls and ceilings. There is an abundance of windows throughout the entire house, and the cathedral ceilings with can lights add to the openness. The kitchen flows seamlessly with the great room and dining room in the open layout. The kitchen includes a walk-in pantry and a large island with built-in shelves. Upgraded granite countertops with thick 4-inch overhangs, and tall white cabinets with soft close drawers complete the design. The main bedroom suite includes his/her vanities and a large custom tiled zero-entry shower. Bedrooms 2 and 3 share a centrally located hall bathroom. The rear of the home features a large covered rear deck area, with Trex-style flooring, vinyl deck rails, and views of Cherokee Lake. Please note that the floor plan pictured includes a double staircase leading to a loft over the garage. This home will not have a loft, therefore the double staircase will not be present, adding more open living space.

The house has a solid poured concrete wall foundation, no block construction as is typical in this area. When using blocks, it’s only a matter of time before the mortar joints crack. This home is solidly built, it isn’t going anywhere! Public city water is onsite, not on a well system. High-speed fiber internet allows you to work at home with no delays. This home not only adds up to quality construction but practicality throughout!

Located in historic Grainger County, with its scenic farmland, but close to all necessary amenities. Jefferson Memorial Hospital and Walmart are within 15 miles. Knoxville, Tennessee’s third largest city, is 37 miles. Move to the Cherokee Lake area. No devastating hurricanes, flooding, tornadoes, blizzards, sharks, alligators, or pythons in this part of the country to fear and deal with. When there is 4 feet of snow on the ground up north, the ground is barely moist here! 4 full mild seasons within an 8-hour drive of 20 neighboring states! When gas hit $7 in California, it was half that in East TN! And Tennessee has NO state income tax & LOW property taxes! This home and site check all the boxes.

Live the Cherokee Lake Life!
