It’s rare when a property of this caliber enters the market and provides a complete list of the amenities desired when searching for the ultimate get-away lifestyle. High Country Reserve is so rare that it has only changed families once in nearly a century. This stunning property checks all the boxes, even the one for a whole private lake.
Located in the Southern Appalachian Mountains of East Tennessee, High Country Reserve is a nature lover’s paradise. This magnificent retreat encompasses nearly 400 acres of mature hardwood forest, farm and meadow land, providing unforgettable scenery throughout. The property is surrounded by the 655,000-acre Cherokee National Forest, the largest tract of public land in Tennessee.
Spectacular Miller Lake greets you as you arrive at the Reserve. At 3660’ it’s the third highest elevation lake east of the Mississippi. Banked by a beautiful stand of hardwoods and pine, it’s a stunning body of water. There is really nothing that can prepare you for the joy of owning your own whole private lake. Paddle boarding, canoeing, kayaking, fishing or a simple swim is all part of a day’s fun here. Spring fed from the headwaters of Roaring Creek, at nearly 12 acres and with depths to 26 feet, it’s the perfect lake for creating a private world-class fishery all your own. The water here is a perfect habitat for a great variety of fish, including trout, small mouth bass, crappie, channel catfish and bream. Imagine owning a private lake with unrestricted access for you and your guests to enjoy year round.
Also on the property is the warm and inviting “Hilltop” log cabin. Nestled in the woods and overlooking the Northern end of Miller Lake, it has all the privacy you could hope for yet allows for quick access to town and local attractions. With three (3) bedrooms, three (3) full baths and 2,150 square feet of living space, it’s a great size for a vacation spot or a perfect place to use as a base-camp while building your dream home on one of the many magnificent building sites within the Reserve.
A heated, 20’ x 30’, in-ground pool provides the opportunity for year round swimming, should you choose. Its dedicated pool house has an efficient variable speed circulation pump, automatic chlorine feeder, sand bed filter system and a 400,000 BTU heater plus storage for all your pool supplies. There is a tennis court with an observation deck next to the pool should you want to swing a racket, or just watch friends and family while you sip a cool beverage.
In addition to the main cabin, there is a second home with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, perfect for a caretaker or additional family member. It has ample privacy and a large garden area. Also included are several storage buildings including an office building with a bath and workshop, and covered sheds to protect all your farm equipment, ATV’s or vehicles.
