Built with rock carved from Bluff Mountain, my “House of the Month” for March is this amazing historic stone cottage priced at $265,000. It sets on approximately 6.5 acres and offers the unique feel of living as though you are right in the middle of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park!
Inside, the historic cottage located on Goose Creek Road in Seymour covers approximately 2,800 square feet of living space. Its four bedroom, two bath interior was designed with a chestnut wood tongue and groove. The materials that went into many of the walls came off the property. They were then milled in the valley before being brought back up the mountain for use in this historic cottage. These old chestnut trees are now extinct.
The historic cottage also consists of original oak floors and a totally updated kitchen with Tuscany ceramic tile. In addition to its abundance of storage, the home offers spacious rooms throughout, such as a dining room with large opening to kitchen, rooms separated by arched stone walls, handsome fireplaces (including woodburning), and an absolutely adorable breakfast sunroom. Adjacent to the house is a two-car garage that can really help provide some additional storage space!
Outside, the property offers more than 6.5 beautiful acres featuring a pool, a nature trail, flowers, fruit trees, mountain views, roaming wildlife, and an eight-foot waterfall! Built in 1948, this historic cottage also will provide the new owner with plenty of opportunities to put their own personal touch to the restoration changes they desire to make.
Lastly, it’s also secluded and off the beaten path for those who enjoy the privacy of the country setting. If you would like to see the property first-hand, call me at 865-654-2111 to set up a time to visit.
