A one owner custom home. First time advertised for sale. This home will be featured on the cover of Homes & Land magazine. Gorgeous landscaping. The owners of the home own a yard maintenance company. And it shows with lots of curb appeal. All-brick low maintenance home. Enjoy Lake Life without worrying about painting/staining the exterior walls, overhangs, and eaves. And the cost that this adds to home ownership. The large, 65 foot – 520 square feet, wrap-around, covered porch provides panoramic views of Cherokee Lake and the surrounding mountains. The porch is angled eastwardly so sitting on the porch will allow you to enjoy sunrises. And, in the afternoons, shelter you from the heat of the day. The split, dual-driveway will take you to either the main level double-car garage or to the lower garage. The 23×47 lower garage is large enough for a car, or a bass boat, or a few jet skis, or a combination of all. And, it will still have plenty of storage space leftover. A bonus is that you can enter the finished section of the basement, without having to climb steps.

As soon as you enter the house the quality of the ¾ inch, nailed-down, true oak hardwood floors is striking. The main level of the house has an open floor plan with 1,693 square feet allowing for family gatherings, enjoying media, and the warmth of the fireplace on cool nights. High-speed fiber internet for streaming, or for those of us that work from home, and cable service is available. The proximity of the island kitchen provides a place to grab a quick bite with the adjacent dining room allowing for family get-togethers and holiday celebrations. All three bedrooms and both bathrooms are on the main level. The laundry room is on the main level. Everything is on the main level. So, no steps to climb, all is easily accessible. The basement, as previously mentioned, can be entered from the lower garage. But if you don’t mind stairs, it can also be reached from the inside of the home. The basement is huge adding another 1,591 square feet of space, and it’s divided into three sections. The main section is finished with heating and air and carpeting. It is currently being used as a gathering place for the family, with a bedroom set up for overnight guests. A second section provides plenty of storage. And the third section contains the lower garage mentioned previously.

The home sits on a dead-end street, perfect for walking, strolling, bike riding, with very little drive by traffic to crowd the road. This lakeview property is not lakefront, but you can WALK down the street to Cherokee Lake. And within 9 miles you can find 8 boat launch sites and 5 marinas to keep your boat year-round. Cherokee Dam, with year-round facilities for unloading your boat, parking, grilling stations, a public beach, restrooms, pavilion, and campground is less than 9 miles. See accompanying photos. Grainger County Park with pavilions for family gatherings, walking trails, playgrounds, and boat ramp is less than 3 miles away.

Located in historic Grainger County, with its scenic farmland, but close to all necessary amenities. Jefferson Memorial Hospital (a four-star nationally ranked health care provider), Walmart, Lowe’s, and restaurants are within 15 miles. Knoxville, Tennessee’s third largest city, is 37 miles. So, if you work in Knoxville, settle in Grainger County, where you pay lower property taxes and get much more property for the money. This much land, with this type of location would cost you five times more in lake communities around Knoxville. Tennessee, which has NO State Income Tax and four full, mild seasons. When there is 4 feet of snow on the ground up north, the ground is barely moist here! No hurricanes, no ice storms, and little history of tornadoes and flooding in this area of East Tennessee. The proximity to TVA controlled Cherokee Lake prevents flooding issues. Within an 8-hour drive of 20 states, and the Great Smoky Mountains in its backyard. You can have this and access to Cherokee Lake, with its renowned fishing, boating, and recreation activities by owning your dream property at a premier Cherokee Lake community.

Live the Cherokee Lake Life!
