Mountain living at its finest! Set on 26+/- acres within The Ridges at Franklin Forest, this character-filled home was built in 2015 nestled in a quiet cul-de-sac setting. Maximize all the seasons here: warm up next to the fire during the first dusting of snow, host friends for a summer dinner party, and enjoy the welcome cool fall breeze on the deck after a long summer. The home boasts stone and wood details, soaring ceilings, hardwood floors, and a metal roof, all to compliment its Tennessee mountain landscape backdrop. 3 bedrooms including the primary suite on the main level, host to a stunning bathroom and garden tub overlooking the peaceful surroundings. The distinct kitchen boasts expansive cabinet and counter space and stainless appliances including Thermador refrigerator and Jennair gas range. Finished room above the garage would make a useful home office, hobby room, game area, or storage. Lovingly created and thoughtfully designed, this quiet outdoor space is a dream! Cultivate your green thumb in the charming garden area and create your dream cut flower garden. Escape to the greenhouse to arrange flowers, begin canning homegrown vegetables, or journal over a cup of hot tea. Walk out the back door and onto the covered deck to enjoy the sounds of nature, overlooking your 26+/- acre tract. If desired, lighten the wooded surroundings and create an eastern-facing viewshed. Have the community feel without the cookie-cutter lifestyle. The Ridges at Franklin Forest community hosts estate lots, underground utilities, gated entrance, and covenants and restrictions. Easy 25 minute drive to big box stores, grocery offerings, and medical options. 25 minutes to I-24. 1 hour to Chattanooga. Less than 2 hours to Nashville's BNA Airport. No state income tax in TN!
