Home Descriptions:

— Located in the Mialaquo neighborhood is a charming Arts and Crafts design home that incorporates a tour of Tennessee rustic!  This home features beautiful Tellico Lake in its back yard which can be enjoyed by the fireplace on the screen porch.    Inside the home features a gourmet kitchen (complete with a large hidden pantry) and a unique spa area for 4-legged BFFs.  The owners of this beautiful home are clever and crafty and have incorporated their talents and hobbies into the home with great spaces for creativity.  This home offers a gently slope to the water and is a great spot for relaxing and enjoying the best of lake living.

— A beautiful 4200 sq. ft. home in the Toqua neighborhood greets you with a great room that offers a stunning 29′ cathedral ceiling of eastern pine above, exotic hardwood flooring below and phenomenal windows straight ahead.  It was created to be a wonderful, peaceful environment for large family gatherings.  You will see an amazing collection of sconces throughout the home that were saved from Opera Houses and  Grand Theatres from around the world.  An elevator from the main floor to the 2nd owner’s suite, a tram from the deck to the dock, and a family room in the loft are just a few of the many interesting concepts of this house.  This home is a wonderful and peaceful retreat.

— A 5,000 sq.ft. brick lakefront home in the Tanasi neighborhood was designed to offer a panoramic view of the main channels of the lake.  The creative designs and renovations made by the owners and their daughter can be seen as soon as one walks into the house (and by viewing the before and after photos).  There are wonderful mementos of time spent living all over the globe and the delightful mix of the new with the old creates an inviting home for all to visit.

— A custom built 4200 sq.ft. home in Tommotley Shores is perfectly situated to capture panoramic views of Tellico Lake and Tanasi golf course.  You may even catch a glimpse of adventurous divers on the lake-immersed silos.  The kitchen with a relaxing built-in banquette, the large windows in the dining space,  coffered ceilings and a peaceful office setting were well designed by the owners.  The first floor is 2400 sq.ft. and the lower level is 1800 sq.ft and as the Mrs. says about the home—”A spacious ranch sitting on top of a 3 bedroom guest resort.”  Come and enjoy the indoor and outdoor clever surprises everywhere you look!
