Welcome to Laurel Park - an elegant and unique estate property secretly nestled in the pastoral valley of Laurel Ridge adjoining beautiful Candies' Creek, yet minutes from the conveniences of downtown Cleveland, TN. As you enter the gracious estate through stately electronic gates, you realize this isn't just a house. Instead, you are making your way down a tree-lined drive that opens up into your own private forest, tranquil resort, and gentleman's country retreat. Laurel Park was established in 1987 by a prominent Cleveland family and lovingly maintained over the yearsThe current owners purchased the 8 plus acre grounds with a vision to take the beauty and tranquility of the historic terrain, and expand, improve and update with every modern convenience imaginable while keeping the integrity of the original beauty intact. This is evidenced from the meticulously manicured grounds to the noble copper-roofed manor and iconic fairytale guest cottage overlooking the majestic fountain and 3 natural spring-fed ponds. Upon arriving you will find Laurel Manor, the cottage at Laurel Park and the Laurel Barn within the main complex adjacent to the circular roundabout.

The formal living room is oversized and complemented with an Italian marble tile, gas fireplace and plantation shuttered windows overlooking the back woodlands and a natural creek. Just off the formal living area is the breathtaking dining room that boasts another beautiful crystal chandelier imported from Europe, and extraordinary hand-carved crown molding with detailed accents. The newly renovated chef's kitchen is the focal point of the manor. With stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and inviting colors, the floor to ceiling windows in the eat-in conservatory provide a panoramic view of the outdoor kitchen, fenced security yard, enormous fire pit, and lighted brick pathway leading to the guest cottage. Adjoining the formal living room, accessed through double french doors, you will step down into the flexible use sunroom/office with built-in fine cabinetry, and plenty of windows overflowing with natural light and ambiance.
