Drive the blue ridge parkway, or just relax at home on the deck and soak in the bucolic views. So beguiling are the views that I almost expect to see Mr. Darcy walk out of the morning mist. (Pride and Prejudice fans will not be disappointed.)
We never get tired of the ever changing views, from the morning mist that burns away to reveal the mountain each day to the abundant wildlife, including humming birds, geese, hawks, wild turkeys, owls, giant woodpeckers, cardinals and blue jay, deer, and tortoises, all of which can be seen with the naked eye from the deck. Unlike being stuck at the top of the mountain, the view is approachable as you stroll the 2 acres of lush lawn and Leland pines.
Built in 1999 this clean home has modern comforts like high speed internet, cable TV, monitored security system, fully equipped eat in kitchen, fluffy bath towels, high thread count luxury sheets. A king sized bed in the master, and queen sized beds in the two guest rooms, in total 3 bedrooms. 2 acres of manicured lawn, paved concrete circular driveway, attached garage with an electric chair lift for those who may have a challenge climbing the short flight of stairs into the house.
This home is just 1 hour by car from the Asheville airport or 2 hours from Atlanta airport and an easy 2 mile ride from the main highway 441 in Franklin.
While many great homes in the area require a steep drive up the mountain on a dirt road, this home is easily accessible by paved roads and concrete driveway. Elevation is about 2200 feet allowing both mountain and valley views. It's a quick ten minute drive to local restaurants and downtown Franklin. Great views without the danger of a steep dirt road.
Everyone who has visited the house is surprised and delighted by the spectacular views from the deck, pretty sure you will be, too!

A short ten minute drive takes you into downtown Franklin, a charming and historic town with a Main Street, a Town Square, fair grounds and two golf courses. Also popular is the Greenway River Walk, where you can stroll along a beautiful wide paved path by the Little Tennessee River. Finally, thanks to the economic recovery, the downtown is really starting to sparkle, with an influx of younger folks, it's artsy and famous for its gem shows. Some nice restaurants and micro-breweries are popping up, too! Enjoy the awesome hiking on the Appallacian Trail and Bartram Trail. You can see AT Albert Mountain Fire Tower from the porch deck! Link up to the Bartam trail a couple of miles from the house on Tessentee Road. Bring your kayak or rent one in town and use the new launch just down the hill on the Little Tennessee River.
