TOWNSEND: $215,000 - 233 Mt. Luke Rd., 3bd/2.5bth: Before I left on vacation, I had the pleasure of photographing this special property for Rachelle Ipaye of East TN Real Estate. Sitting only a couple minutes from the heart of Townsend, and built in the 1930's, this home oozes charm and character!!! Walking in the front door, I was immediately WOWed!!!! The huge great room boasts a open ceiling, with the rafters showing, to the 2nd floor loft and wall to wall, floor-to-ceiling windows bringing the outside right inside. And in the middle of the windows, that gorgeous stacked stone fireplace. I love the touches of original stained glass over the door to the deck.
I'm loving all the shiplap that can be found on the ceilings in the kitchen and main bath. And the kitchen has been updated with new cabinets and stainless appliances, but has kept the gorgeous original wood floors. Now check out that main bath!! It's HUGE, and includes a walk-in shower, from 2 sides, and the awesome claw foot tub!
The deck on the back runs the full length of the house and is the perfect place to watch the nightly fireflies in June, the changing leaves in fall, the falling snow come winter, or the blooming of spring. There is also another giant deck area to the side of the house that has been built around the original fireplace of the old homestead.
Whether this home is bought as an investment property as part of the hugely popular vacation rental scene or a permanent resident for a family that loves being in the mountains, it will be loved by all who enter!
