3,192 sq. ft, Two Floors, 2 bed, 3 bath Home on 2.67 acres, $259,900, Parrottsville, TN.

cropped-Image.jpgFeatures an open floor plan that includes a huge living/dining/kitchen area; family room; 2+ bed/3 bath; workshop/office; 2+ garage; and a huge wrap-around deck from which to enjoy the gorgeous views of the Smoky Mountains; and rolling foothills, creek, some wooded areas.

This property is located just 52 miles east of Knoxville, & 35 miles east of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge.  Asheville, NC, is 70 miles south with the Biltmore Mansion, the largest house in the USA .

This is a custom-built, circular house with 17 side panels that are 8′ wide (giving flat walls for easy location of furniture).  There are no interior load-bearing walls, which allows for custom designed floor plans.  This floor plan was designed by its owners to take advantage of the breath-taking views through the use of six 7′ wide windows in the huge, open living area that includes living/dining/kitchen.  There are cathedral ceilings throughout the home including the lower level with its 12′ high walls.

It sits at the top of a knoll halfway up the hill from the creek to the highest ridge opposite the entrance into the subdivision of Clear Creek Estates.

Open Living Dining & Kitchennliving_entrance1Entering for the first time brings these comments:  “Wow!  What a beautiful home!”; “It doesn’t look this big from the outside!”; “Look at that view!  It is breathtaking!”

The open floor plan, cathedral ceiling and wide windows create a spacious, warm, and welcome feeling to this home.

The light oak color of the Alloc flooring and the kitchen cabinets add to the warmth and lots of light.  This open area takes up 1/2 of the 1495 sq ft on this level.  The diameter of the house is about 44′ (from front door across to the kitchen wall); and the room is about 22′ wide.

Custom built by a local cabinet maker, we chose Alder instead of Oak wood because of its smooth texture and fine lines.  They add to the  warmth and beauty of this large, open area.  Built-in upgrades include roll-out shelves in all the lower cabinets; 2 Lazy Suzans, an appliance garage, a spice rack near the stove; and a utensil drawer in front of the double sink.  

The appliances stay with the house including:  a side-by-side refrigerator; built-in microwave; Kenmore Elite dishwasher with stainless steel interior; garbage disposal; and a new (2015) Samsung free-standing range with double ovens, a ceramic top, and stainless steel front.

IMG_0325bedroom#2The Master Bedroom (left) measures approximately 17′ x 17′ and the Suite has its own Bathroom w/Double Vanity, Double Shower; a Walk-In Closet,  and a Private Deck.

The Guest Bedroom (right) is about 16′ x 16′  and has a large 12′ long closet and a bathroom is just outside the door.

Although the bedrooms are all carpet, the rest of the flooring on this level are  *Alloc Original Laminate Flooring.  I wish we had put this in the bedrooms as well, because this flooring looks as good 15 years later as the day after it was installed.

multi-purpose2The 1180 sq ft finished living area include the following:

  • Great Room (Multi-Purpose Room) that is approximately 20′ x 30′, with a 10′ vaulted ceiling, and is carpeted;
  • a full Bathroom #3;
  • and two bonus rooms of about 12′ by 20′.
  • the 4th side of each room is the curved outside wall.

100_0650Bath#3LLOne Bonus Room (3rd Bedroom, Den or Office) has a walk-out door to the concrete porch and its own bathroom. Another Bonus Room is available for a Workshop or office.  Built-in storage up to the 12″ vaulted ceiling.  

 The 600 sq ft two-car garage has 12′ vaulted ceilings also and the same built-in storage shelving on three sides and a shorter shelf above the 10′ high double, insulated garage door.  Since the garage is inside the house, it is also heated and air-conditioned.  It also has hot and cold running water and a floor drain, and a fire-wall on the three interior walls.

This level could easily been turned into an apartment for adult children or Mother-in-Law Suite.
