This property was long ago used for tobacco farming and the house used to be a small tenant house for those that worked the land. It was bought in 1984 by an architect who was moving back to the area and converted it into a beautiful modern home. Both the large farm house and the newer, small in-law house were designed by the architect who lived in them.
Since renovating there have been multiple additions, over doubling the size of the overall house. The main bedroom, back porch, sun room, and 3th and 4th bedrooms were all added over the years.
It sits far off the main road and away from traffic, and the property surrounding it is all farm land.
The barn currently hosts two ponies, but it has housed horses and cows at different times over the last two decades and has a large storage area for tack, tools, and extra belongings.
Greeneville is a small town in East Tennessee tucked into the foothills of the Smokey Mountains.
It is the historic hometown of president Andrew Johnson and boasts a quaint downtown with some of the best elementary and high schools in the state. It also has excellent hospitals and health care in town as well.
With a short 10 minute drive you will find yourself in the thick of the mountains with all sorts of outdoor activities to enjoy. Springs, waterfalls, and hiking trails all pepper this part of the Smokies.
The property is two and a half miles from downtown Greeneville and a half mile from the city limit.
The main farm house that sits on the top of the hill is 2,540 sq/ft. It has 4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, central heating and air, a large screened-in back porch, and an outdoor hot tub. Though the original house was over 100 years old, the house has been completely remade and expanded over the last two decades.
There is also a barn on the property. Half of it has been converted to office/living space and the other half currently hosts two ponies. A large part of the 11 acres in the back of the property is a field where they can graze as well.
It is connected to city water and sewer and has separate central heating & air for upstairs and downstairs.
Three years ago a small, modern home was built on the property and while it could be sold separately, it would be perfect for family to live.
It is 1,100 sq/ft, with one main bedroom, one additional bedroom/office space, and one and a half baths. It has a very modern feel with broad sliding-door windows on either side of the house and a porch wrapping around its entirety.
It also has a large screened-in porch on the front and a large shop space in the rear.
This property is newly on the market and listed at 495,500 for the main farm house, smaller in-law house, barn, and 11 acres of surrounding land.
