This Heritage Log Home was built in 2002, and the current owners have added a number of improvements from built-in storage cabinetry to a camera alarm system. Even the original garage has been upgraded to a 2,000+ sq. ft. 10-car playground for storing your boat, Jet Skis and other recreational vehicles. Additional storage can be found throughout the residence, so your personal belongings will never search for a place to stay.
Upon entering the great room, you will stop in your tracks when you see the windows to the world that provide breathtaking views of the lake and beyond through the tremendous wall of windows and French doors. The great room also features a cathedral ceiling and wood-burning fireplace with Buck Stove insert built with Tennessee fieldstone, and a hand-carved mantel, perfect for relaxing with family or friends on cool evenings. From the great room, a welcoming archway invites you into the dining room and kitchen, where the beautiful hickory hardwood floors continue. The cabinetry is custom-built pine with granite countertops and complements the quality stainless appliances. Just off the kitchen is the laundry room, which is large enough to double as a walk-in pantry.
From the opposite side of the great room, you will find yourself in the spacious master suite, with a private exit to the deck that surrounds the home, providing additional views of the lake. The master bath boasts a Jacuzzi tub large enough for two, as well as a separate shower and vanity area with finishing touches of granite countertops and custom pine cabinets. The luxurious, spa-like feeling will leave you relaxed and ready for your day’s activities.
Upstairs, a catwalk extends across the great room and connects the two separate bedroom suites. Each bedroom has a full bath and ample room to relax and unwind. In the hall between them, you’ll find a computer niche perfect for catching up on work or a quiet place to write out a few notes.
A Place to Call Home
Just when you think you have seen all that this home has to offer, a surprise awaits in the finished lower level. It is here that you’ll find a second full living area with access to yet another wraparound porch. This spacious room can be used for a den or fourth bedroom. Built-in, custom cabinetry offers even more storage, and a state-of-the-art control room houses the security system, water-treatment system, and four-zone air conditioner with electronic UV air cleaning. A gas fireplace, wet bar, and built-in wine chiller create an entertainment space perfect for an overflow from the great room on the main floor.
Entertaining continues once you exit the home by making the short walk to one of the property’s two docks on Douglas Lake. Guests can change into their swimsuits in the dockside outbuilding before ascending a choice of swimming platforms to dive into the clear waters. Moor up to a 24-foot boat on the dock is a breeze, with an easy ramp to load and unload your craft for transportation. Or maybe you’ll just enjoy the peace and tranquility in full view of the lake, your private oasis.
In the Middle of It All
Although this property feels as if it’s miles away from everything, the truth is that it’s quite close to everywhere you want to be. Newport and Dandridge, Tenn. are minutes away, and Dandridge’s quaint hometown feel welcomes you to the second-oldest town in Tennessee. Sugar Cove Way is located almost equidistance from Knoxville, Smoky Mountain National Park, and Asheville, NC, putting it right in the middle of recreation and adventure. Spend a day exploring nearby cultural areas or just go for a hike in the mountains. Both are equally enjoyable.
Drive a little farther away and you’ll find yourself in the Pigeon Forge / Gatlinburg area, a hub of tourist attractions, restaurants and live entertainment. How about some rides at the area’s amusement park, Dollywood? Gatlinburg is a popular vacation resort steeped in history from the pioneering beginnings of the country.
For the outdoor adventurer, one needn’t travel farther than the property itself. Douglas Lake is a reservoir of the French Broad River and is known for its bass and crappie fishing. In fact, bass pro tournaments occur at the lake regularly.
