Winchester apartment description

Perched 50 feet above Tims Ford lake, this retreat has great Wide Open Views across the lake. A Large Floating Dock is perfect for Swimming, Boating, Water Skiing, Tubing, Fishing or Relaxing. The Master Bedroom has an incredible Lake View through 9 foot wide sliding glass doors with a Hot Tub just outside on the 400 square foot covered patio. In the evening, the living room can become a Home Theater with a 10' Screen and Surround Sound. A nearby Licensed Massage Therapist is available for on-site (even on dock) massages! There is a small universal gym in the second bedroom. The living room has a sofa and two Rocker Recliners. A community Boat Ramp is 500 yds from the house. A Pedal Boat is available year round to explore the lake or nearby Goose Island. Originally designed as a 'mother-in-law' apartment, this 900 square foot property is the lower half of a lake home with a private entrance and sound-proofing.

This property is best for a romantic retreat for a couple, or a couple with one or two children who are old enough to swim and safely navigate outside stairs to the lake. It can be used for two couples, but there is only one bathroom and the second bedroom doesn't have any windows.

The owners travel frequently and are often not present. If the owners are present, they're usually 'invisible' and the backyard and dock are for exclusive use by the guests during their stay. We do have neighbors on both sides. One of them has small children, and we would prefer they not learn 'new words' :). So, this property is not a good choice for loud or late night partying.

                  Location

                  Car: Necessary

                  Tims Ford is a 10,700 acre lake with 246 miles of beautiful shoreline. Located in a secluded community, but just 10 minutes from local restaurants, a historic cinema and a Wal-Mart. The Jack Nicholas designed Bear Trace Golf Course was named one of the 'Top Ten Places You Can Play', and it's a 20 minute drive or 5 minutes by boat! For history buffs, less than 30 minutes away is Jack Daniels, the oldest distillery in the US. Sewanee and the University of the South, along with exceptional dining, are a 35 minute scenic drive up the mountain. The Bonnaroo Music Festival is also 35 minutes away. Less than forty-five minutes to the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration in Shelbyville, and some of the best hicking trails in the Southeast, such as Fiery Gizzard and Stone Door. We are also an hour from Huntsville and the US Space Center, and 90 minutes from Nashville and Chattanooga.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1997

                  About the owner: Dave is a former Navy F18 pilot and Lilli was in the medical field. Dave is an author. The Fuzed series (formerly Resurrect), ForeWord Reviews Book of the Year & the 2014 Epic Award for best action adventure is being developed into a movie. They also have an e-commerce business.

                  Why the Owner Chose Winchester:
                  We moved here for work reasons and fell in love with the area and people. It's a slower paced life in a beautiful surrounding but with plenty of opportunities to play. You can either relax and soak up rays or fish ... or you can spike your adrenaline with water sports. We're very proud of our house. We travel frequently and thought it would be a waste not to share this little slice of paradise.
