***DRONE VIDEO ONLINE. Message if you need it sent to you*** Spectacular WaterFront 9.91 Acre Estate Retreat with 585' of Manicured Shoreline on the Tennessee River at Mullins Cove, surrounded by Cumberland Plateau mountain bluffs and the adjoining Prentice Cooper State Forest. The BEST VIEWS anywhere!!! A stunning 150+ year old restored Log Home is the centerpiece of the 9.91 Acre mowed flat WaterFront lawn which includes a nice guest home. You have to see it in person to appreciate the views and peacefulness, this is a Wildlife and outdoors paradise with the River in front and Mountains behind ! There is an Additional 45 +/- Acres across the street with a Log Home and Super 40 x 60 Workshop ALSO AVAILABLE. This tract backs to the Mountain and joins Prentice Cooper State Forest VIDEO ONLIDRONE VIDEO ONLINE. Message if you need it sent directly to you. Please Call for more info or your private showing. The sun sets down the river directly in front of the property. A scenic and comfortable drive down HWY 41 (Use interstate now, while construction on 41 going on) from Chattanooga goes quickly and there are also great spots for a helicopter landing on the property. Two docks are in place and ready for your use. Mullins Cove is the crown jewel of the western end of "The Grand Canyon of the Tennessee River", a largely protected gorge. The Tennessee River Gorge Trust (TRGT) protects thousands of acres where the river cuts a canyon through the mountains of the Cumberland Plateau, roughly from the foot of Signal Mountain to this property. Adjacent Prentice Cooper State Forest has thousands of acres and 35 miles of hiking trails. Pictures of the grand log home (approximately 3251 sq ft) don't do it justice. This is a pre-Civil War home that was disassembled, moved to this location and rebuilt by craftsmen in 1959 and 1960 and had another major renovation in the mid 90s. Massive logs frame a very functional home with great flow, an intimate living room with the river view showcases exposed beams and a breathtaking fireplace made of huge stone. One huge rock serves as a lentil for this fireplace, which is fully functional as are the other two fireplaces in the home. One is in the Master Bedroom and one in the Kitchen and they are all are capped in flagstone. Several very nice porches throughout the home with some screened and the front porch looks directly down the river! A quaint guest home (approximately 2100 sq ft) sits well to the side but with wonderful water and sunset views also. There is 9.91 acres on the waterfront with these two homes with extensive rip rap in place for bank stabilization, while across the street at the foot of the mountains is a second, very charming log home (about 1500 sq ft built in 1986) and a large, very useful 40' x 60' Workshop/Garage. There is a perfect area behind these two buildings to have more fields leading to the actual foot of the mountains if desired, and they would be beautiful and very private. Both Properties can be COMBINED or we will entertain any split. Please call with questions or for your private tour of this exceptional property. Thanks!
