We purchased this home ourselves a few months ago and have totally redone it from the bottom up and the results are truly outstanding! Gleaming hardwood floors, a spacious granite kitchen (as my daughter would say) to die for, warm gas heat, a wonderful workshop/garage out back, a large lot & very nice views, a very comfortable mother or father-in-law apartment too, all in a great Kodak neighborhood! Convenient to both Knoxville and Sevierville, Kodak serves as a great middle ground, a very short drive from either city.
Let’s begin with that in law apartment. It has everything that mom or dad (or a grown child) needs. This home offers them their very own:
- No step entrance with a garage door & opener that allows them to drive right in and stay dry.
- Full kitchen with brand new appliances, living area, and bedroom with a walk-in closet.
- Washer/Dryer connections
- Excessive amount of storage
All of these are on the same level and there are absolutely no stairs to access any of the above!
If you like the in-law apartment, you are going to love the detached garage/workshop out back. Room for at least 2 more cars (there is also a large two car garage upstairs so this is just for toys and projects. If you are a woodworker or project person, the workshop is a fabulous retreat. There is even a small 1/2 bath in the detached garage so that you can clean up before you come back in the main house.
The main house however is the piÃ¨ce de rÃ©sistance of this offering, with so much to enjoy. Start with the nearly level and very usable front yard leads to the large covered porch on the front of the home that provides gorgeous views of the Smoky Mountains across a broad vista. Beautiful mountain views can be enjoyed from the swing on the front porch.
Step inside and the gleaming hardwood floors and multitude of windows showcase the beautiful brick mantel. There is also a large deck off the living room that provides another very attractive outdoor space. Moving into the kitchen, you will truly be wowed by the massive island, the large number of cabinets and the work desk, all covered in luxurious granite. Just off the kitchen step through the glass doors into a formal dining room. There is a guest bath, mudroom, laundry room, and access from the two car main level garage. All of these are on the walk-in main level.
Upstairs are four bedrooms and two full baths with brand new granite vanity tops and ceramic tile showers so that your private living area stays private when you have guests downstairs. This is a prime layout for people who want to entertain because nobody sees the condition of your bedroom but you.
This home features 4 large bedrooms & 2.5 baths in the main home, one bedroom and one full bath in the in-law apartment, and even a half bath in the detached garage/workshop. Remember car collectors, this property also includes a total of 5 garage spaces all accessed via garage door openers. Photos will follow soon but by then it could be gone. With well over one acre of privacy in a great upscale community and so much more, this is a real bargain which when entered into the MLS later this week at only $300,000 simply won’t last long.
Still not quite ready but we are so close – Here are some very preliminary photos:
