Situated at an elevation of over 5,000 feet, this threestory home pairs the beauty of longrange mountain and valley views with the comfort of cool temperatures. At this secluded retreat within walking distance of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, you’ll find ample space to unwind outdoors and take in nature’s scenery and wildlife. The wraparound deck offers scenic views from the comfort of two gazebos one of which features a hot tub and the other a gas grill with seating. Meanwhile, a lowerlevel patio boasts a twoperson table that is an ideal perch for refreshing beverages after a trail hike.
Vaulted ceilings soar in the cabinlike living area where a stone fireplace sits center stage. Large windows invite in natural light and mountain views while a telescope lets you watch the stars come out at night. In the evenings, settle in to watch a movie on the smart TV. Stainless steel appliances shine in the modern kitchen...
