Beautiful Country Home With Views For Miles Near Thorn Hill


Surround yourself with million-dollar views on this amazing property in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. Located an hour north of Knoxville, this secluded, custom estate is now being offered at auction. Built in the 1980s, the custom 8758 sq. ft. home was strategically placed along the ridgetop to maximize the views, inside and out. Each of the six bedrooms has its own private bath which is convenient to host a large family or be used as a retreat, Bed and Breakfast, vacation rental, etc. There are an additional 2 full baths and 4 half baths to compliment the living space. Floor-to-ceiling windows are featured throughout the home, providing dawn-to-dusk viewing of the surrounding mountains. Wood was harvested and crafted locally to round out the details throughout the house. A commercial-grade kitchen, a bar area and a wine cellar will host your culinary delights. Dine in the adjacent casual dining room, in the unique breeze-way or move to the banquet room for larger parties. Then gather around one of the many fireplaces to entertain and share stories. Guests can find private accommodations at the end of a long day in apartment-style living quarters that are complimented with its own full kitchen. Just a short walk from the house, you’ll find a small guest house with the same outstanding views of the surrounding ridgetops. This guest house includes a swimming pool and pool house. Around the centrally located home, the grounds feature fieldstone and river rock landscaping. The surrounding farm includes a combination of 154 acres of timber, 51 acres of pasture and 37 acres of brush, the perfect habitat for various wildlife including deer and turkey. Your privacy is protected by two gated entrances, one at the main entrance nearly a half mile down the private driveway and the second at the fence line surrounding the home. This property is secluded and quiet, but close to regional airports, hospitals and amenities. The farm is less than an hour to multiple cities, such as Knoxville, Morristown, Tri-Cities, and Sevierville/Pigeon Forge… the Gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains.
