Inside you'll find a chef's dream-of-a-kitchen, cozy living area with fireplace, 2 bedrooms on the main level and a full bath. The master suite is the entire upper level - offering you PRIVACY, luxury bath, sitting area and VIEWS of the lake! This SMART HOME makes EVERYTHING easy! AirBnB-friendly neighborhood The SMART features of this property include remote controls for each room that access security, televisions, surround sound audio, temperature controls and more! One HELLO option lights your way in and a simple GOODBYE let's you leave with your alarm set and lights as you want them!

LARGE kitchen island easily seats 6 so the chef is never left out of the conversation when creating those delicious meals! The basket-weave copper sink is extra wide and deep! German beech cabinets and rustic solid bronze pulls are offset by beautiful walnut-stained oak plank floors! The fossilized turtle over the stove will go with the sellers - but creates a fun focal point in the kitchen. (Sellers will replace with compatible tile.)
Central vacuum, floor-mounted vacuum ports, AprilAire on the HVAC, and optimized storage create convenience and efficiency you don't normally find in a lake house!

The additional dining area doubles as a table for cards or board games on rainy days and evenings.

HEATED TRAVERTINE FLOORS on this level keep the chill at bay - making year-round living a dream!
All of the bathrooms feature heated towel racks and built-in hairdryers. Large soaking tubs in the master bedroom and the lower level are the perfect place to relax for a candle-lit bath.
Outside, the rustic setting reminds you that LAKE living is all about the scenery, and this home does not disappoint in that category either! Rugged cliffs across the street create that Gatlinburg feeling and add extra privacy! Gorgeous hardwoods on the lake side provide lush greenery and just the right amount of protection from the sun. Stunning landscaping beds are well-lit at night and irrigated when you're not there to tend to them.

- Deck flooring/rails are low-maintenance TREX with aluminum spindles.
- Over-sized retractable awning comes over the upper level dining area when the sun gets too hot. - The entire lower level deck features retractable screens for enclosure when you want it, without blocking the view if not needed.
- The large, multi-level decks mean you can have a crowd with out feeling crowded!
- The hot tub with fence and pagoda roof is offset for privacy and FUN with it's own TV so you'll never miss that important game!
- Lower level reading nook gives Mom a place to steal away with that book she just HAS to finish!
- Under-deck storage room provides almost 250 sq ft of enclosed, partially finished storage space for lake toys and equipment!
The lower level gazebo, located closer to the lake, features bench seating and a gas firepit to take the chill off Spring and Fall evenings! Overlooking the lake, it's a great place to share stories from a busy day on the water. Surround sound from the home systems plays here too!
Kids will be delighted with the play area, tree house-platform and the ZIP LINE that extends from that platform to a nearby landing area! TOO MUCH FUN!
That's not ALL! 4 deck boxes mounted at the 3 docks mean that you don't have to lug boating gear up and down the hill! Flood lights help when evening falls before you get off the lake.
With loving attention, creativity and thoughtful design, this family created a place so special it will be hard to surpass. Time for a new family to create years worth of memories!
