Move to Cherokee Lake. No devasting hurricanes, flooding, tornadoes, blizzards, sharks, alligators, or pythons in this part of the country to fear and deal with. When there is four feet of snow on the ground up north, the ground is barely moist here! Four full mild seasons within an 8-hour drive of 20 neighboring states! Plus, NO state income tax & some of the lowest property taxes in the nation. When gas is $7 in California, it’s half that in East TN!

This home was sold in July. The owner has declining health issues and is staying in Illinois to be with family. Purchased as the new owners’ retirement home it is now for sale again, and as the owners said, “hopefully what was to be our dream home will be enjoyed by another family as their dream home.” How do we define a location as a Paradise setting? 172′ of Cherokee Lakefront property? Views? Shade trees with a hammock swaying in the breeze? A 52-foot deck for entertaining? YOUR boat anchored to YOUR backyard, ready to go cruising, fishing, or to dock at the nearest restaurant? Well, this setting fits the bill, because it checks all the boxes!

The exterior is framed with hardy cement board siding. The interior is exquisite Easter Pine. Enter through the majestic 8′ front door and immediately experience Cherokee Lake through an open floor plan allowing year-round views. MOST OF THE FURNITURE CONVEYS. 3 bedrooms with additional rooms that can be used as offices, sleeping areas, etc. Energy efficient, the previous owners’ electric bills averaged $67 per month in the summer and $41 in the winter. Fiber internet. No HOA! This area of Cherokee Lake does not allow a permanent dock to be built in your backyard, but as mentioned, your boat can be anchored to shore year-round if you so choose.

Located in Grainger County, with its scenic farmland but close to everything. Cherokee Dam, with year-round facilities for unloading your boat, grilling stations, a public beach, restrooms, pavilion, and campground is 8 miles. Hospitals are within 13 miles. Walmart and Lowe’s are 15 miles.

Paradise setting? Yep!
