Once in a great while a home speaks to you-this is that type of home-17 minutes from state of franklin rd in johnson city but in a country setting. You enter the main living area thru left front door into a totally renovated living area. Tastefully designed and not your basic "cookie cutter home". On the main floor is a living room, kitchen(has over-sized pantry), 1/2 bath, den/dining area combination and the perfect massive master -large with huge closet which has washer/dryer hook-ups. Take you clothes from the dryer and hang-no laundry basket needed. Why didn't any of us think of this?! Have your morning coffee on "trex" deck outside the master & enjoy the quiet beauty of east tennessee. Note the grass on other side of fence that is not mowed behind your house and also the house next door is your land. Look to top of hill, knowing that when are there you will be looking down onto 100' of lake frontage in a cove-yes, the lake will be back so be ready!there is also a right of way to this property on the left side of the house next door. Now enter the right door guarded by two carved indians statues (also available for purchase) into the 1881 country store which features the original 10'tall doors and screens. It also formerly was home to the community post office for piney flats(formerly known as white station). The 20'x50' store has been refurbished maintaining it's integrity without changing the wall shelves or the two rows of cabinets(the glass front cabinet on rt when entering can be purchased). In the middle of the aisle is the original pot bellied stove. The fireplace is non-functioning. Gleaming floors & staircase lead you up the stairwell to a 5'wide balcony on three sides-back and both sides. The ideas are endless for the store area-art gallery featuring local artisans, art and/or pottery classes, wedding venue, family gatherings, history museum, restaurant, neighborhood grocery. Use your imagination.
