River Home For Sale

Lodge Estate on 16+ acres is a visual feast of design, character and extraordinary versatility that started with a vision from a young man, Ralph Speck, a local Insurance Agent. He conveyed his ideas to an Architect that founded Greatwood Log Homes. His vision manifested as his drawings were logically detailed and meticulously drawn. The level of detail invested in this home reflects impeccable taste along with the impressive craftsmanship and a high quality of materials. The logs came out of Wisconsin and transported to its present site via tractor trailer. The floors and trim came from wood reclaimed out of a factory. Every floor plank was milled on site. The luster and natural beauty resulted in beautiful one of a kind flooring. The interior logs are akin to any you may find in a Big Sky, Montana home. The detail in natural stonework is an amazingly beautiful stand-a-lone piece of art that frames the beauty of the interior masonry fireplaces and hearths to the intricate foundation. The wrap around porch has commanding presence of the view of Mountains and Vistas that lies in tandem along the Sequatchie River in the basin of the Cumberland Plateau. Views for miles in the Sequatchie Valley upwards to the Lewis Chapel Gap and famous "Hang Gliding Capital of the East. This Valley is often referred to as the "Grand Canyon of the South"! Five bedrooms, two sleeping porches (up) four full baths, seven fireplaces (three are wood burning). The
interior Atrium is an open two-story multi-use novelty space with balconies off the second floor bedrooms. Two large gathering rooms face the East and have ample space for entertaining. All
windows are casement "Anderson" insulated and gas-filled. Too many specialty features to mention. Prepare to be impressed.
The basement is approximately 3400 sf that is permanently heated and cooled with central vacuum for the woodworker/craftsman in the family. The concrete foundation slab is 12" and reinforced. Such Impressive and abundant storage. The Quonset Hut has a full bath and washer dryer connections. Presently used for a large RV storage
and tractors. The porches and sheds protect lawn equipment.
The main courtyard has been used for several "events" such as wedding venues and other general entertainment soirees.

Several arbors with grapes, garden space, grass landing strip for small planes, put-in/take outs along the Sequatchie River where the riparian rights stop in the middle of the stream.
