Charming Bungalow in Historic Norris

NORRIS: $339,900 - 137 W. Norris Rd., 4bd/2.5bth: 

Check out this sweet little bungalow I photographed out in Norris, y'all.

It's been completely rehabbed and converted from a standard 2/1 bungalow into a 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath home. A beautiful master suite, as well as a second bedroom, are on the main floor, while upstairs there are 2 more bedrooms and full bath.

There's a large living room with fireplace that I imagine will be the perfect spot for cozying up under a blanket with cup of hot cocoa on those cold East Tennessee nights.

The original hardwood floors have been beautifully refinished, and the kitchen is brand new with all stainless appliances and 2 built-in pantry closets.

I'm sure y'all get tired of me talking about my love pf shiplap, but I gotta point out that this home has its ORIGINAL shiplap!  They reused on the walls in the back foyer, as well as in the upstairs bedrooms.

In the wooded backyard there is a flagstone patio with an extra large fire pit in the middle. Again, I can just imagine gathering around the fire pit with family and friends on a cool fall evening. That's East Tennessee living at its best!

Not only is this an awesome bungalow, it's located in a cool community.

If you don't know much about Norris, it's a tiny city (population about 1,600) created in 1933 by the  Tennessee Valley Authority as part of the construction of Norris Dam. It has a central common green and a greenbelt of rural land around the town that is reserved for use by residents. 

A couple of historic facts even some of the locals might not know:

  • The original homes were some of the first all-electric homes in East Tennessee.
  • The Norris Creamery was the first milk-producing plant in the world to be powered solely by electricity.
  • Norris was the first city in Tennessee to have a complete system of dial telephones. 

This house is on point, no matter how you look at it. When you consider it's located in the charming village of Norris, it's a home run.
