Beautiful spacious Lower Laurel Park home. Newly renovated, while keeping some of the home's original charm.
The property is over an acre, partially wooded including bamboo forest with a large flat, private back yard. Great for tossing a football, throwing a frisbee to your pet or simply relaxing after a hike while your burgers cook on the grill. Large Deck with outdoor seating and screened in porch make the backyard a great place to relax! Curl up on the front porch swing with a book about the Smokies and a blanket. Make yourself at home here.
