This charming and spacious Southern Living floor plan, with a creek running along the back border, could be three living spaces in one property, if needed. On the main floor, you will find two large bedrooms (one was once two bedrooms and could easily be partitioned again if more bedrooms are needed!). An open concept living room/dining room combo boasts hardwood floors and a wood-burning fireplace. The kitchen has double doors out to the large deck, where you can watch wildlife frolic near the creek. Beyond the kitchen is an additional large office/dining combo and a nook for a second living space, play area, office area, or library. A generous mudroom/laundry/half bath adjoins the home to the oversized two car garage. Upstairs, you will find a living space with ample room to serve as an efficiency apartment which has brand new carpeting. (When built, the sellers framed one of the windows to be converted to a door to allow a private exterior entrance with the addition of stairs.) Downstairs in the walkout basement is another large living area with a bedroom, bathroom (with brand new tile shower), and kitchenette. A large basement workshop area with tons of storage includes an additional garage bay and a wood heater for back up heat. There is a second workshop area with a garage bay detached from the property for storing all your lawn equipment and additional tools. HVAC is only two years old, windows are Anderson High-Performance Sun Windows, the property has three separate hot water heaters, natural gas, municipal water AND a well for watering landscape and garden. The beautiful number one pine siding on this home was milled from nearby Tellico Plains. Halfway between Knoxville and Chattanooga, Athens is known as the Friendly City and hosts several annual fun events such as MooFest, Pumpkintown, Old-Fashioned Downtown Christmas, and Sounds of Summer Concert Series. Gorgeous East Tennessee awaits your arrival!
