Nestled just beyond the tree line’s edge like a sentinel keeping watch over the valley below is this rustic A frame house. As you meander into the edge of the wooded lot and down the gravel driveway you see the locust deck supports and the stone rock columns on either side of the roof’s edge. Upon entering the home a large window allows you a view to the outdoors and if you are quiet, you may see a family of whitetail deer browse through the front yard between the ferns and wild asters. On the ground level the large open room has a huge storage room currently housing a freezer but could easily be converted (with a few shelves) into a huge pantry to house your extra essential items. There is plenty of room for an additional freezer as well. A Fisher wood burning stove is the primary heat source and easily warms this level and the other levels with the open grate system strategically placed in the ceiling/floors of the other levels. The laundry room is to the left of the woodstove behind closed wooden doors and comes with washer and dryer. A bathroom is located adjacent to the laundry room. Ascend the stairs and you find yourself on the main level. Your eyes immediately gravitate to the huge native stone fireplace going from floor to ceiling complete with stone hearth. This space consisting of the living room, kitchen and office area has sub-flooring and some flooring down but, you can finish it however you choose. Perhaps some hardwood flooring would complement the paneling and plank ceiling that wrap the space in warmth for a feeling of being snug at home while enjoying the glow of the fire. Maybe some tile in a lighter shade…? It’s your decision to complete this home however you choose. Stepping out the back door and onto the rear deck, you are looking towards the neighbor’s house (red house in photos). What a wonderful place to catch the beautiful sunsets over the Tennessee hills. If you wish you could trim/clear out the smaller trees, trim some rhododendron and have an even more beautiful view of the valley below. You might even add another deck or a gazebo to enhance your enjoyment of your priceless mountain view! It’s entirely up to you! Upon reentering the house and ascending the spiral staircase you arrive on the upper level. The primary bedroom, primary bath and another large native stone fireplace are located here. It is almost like having your own tree house, complete with a private deck (newly replaced hand rails and stair rails). Just enjoy the morning among the trees listening to the coo of the mourning doves while you linger over morning coffee. If this sounds like paradise to you, then definitely come and take a look. You might just decide that Roan Mountain Tennessee is most assuredly the place to be!
