              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1983

              About the owner: This home has been in our family since 1983 when our parents wanted to get away from the Florida heat and found this lovely 3 acre property nestled up against the National Forest. Many of the walls are 'tongue & groove' pine and the floors are all hardwood - so it stayed cool and was easy to keep clean. We have our traditional excursions - the Craft Fairs, Pickin on the Square, Thrift Store Shopping and our favorite places to eat - the 'pie place'! But the best is just waking up in the morning and knowing the rocking chairs are calling our names. We love to gather here.

              Why the Owner Chose Franklin:
              The National Forest behind the house with the babbling brook and the waterfalls on the property were key features for us. There is that layed-back feeling which becons everyone to 'relax and stay awhile' as we come up the road.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We have all the conveniences of shopping, restaurants and entertainment, but our home is 4 miles from Downtown Franklin and it seems like I am so far away from it all. There are no sounds but the waterfalls, birds and mountain breezes. I breathe deeper and I think more clearly. The night sky is brilliant and it feels like you can touch the stars. The home is high enough in the mountain elevation that it really cools off at night.
