Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: Jim and Judy operated a sign shop, Val-U-Signs, in Oak Ridge, TN from the mid 80's until 2006. When we retired, our son purchased, and now operates, the business. I guess we couldn't stay retired because here we are starting another business. In 2005 we purchased a Crestline modular home and erected it on our property in Norris (8.6 acres). We lived in the home until early 2012. It's a lovely home, but more space than we need. We subdivided the property, moved another house next door and now live there. Over the years we have done quite a bit of entertaining in the Rabbit Run house. Plus there was one wedding and one memorial service. It really is a perfect place to have a gathering. We chose the name because we have had a rabbit rescue here for several years. Our rabbit rescue pen has become a home for chickens, two rabbits, and a guinea pig. Our granddaughter, Charlie, is an animal lover; and chickens are her current favorite. We still have a house rabbit in our home. He is a white dwarf named Marshmallow. There are also four cats--they are all gentle, and they may come to visit the Rabbit Run house yard.
Why the Owner Chose Norris, TN, USA:
It's a lovely and peaceful place. When we purchased the property in 1997, we wanted to be in the country without being too far from civilization. It's just a few minutes to drive to walking trails, streams, Norris Dam and Norris State Park.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Only an hour away from Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, the retreat is 16 miles north of Knoxville, TN--just minutes away from Norris Lake, Norris Dam, the Clinch River, Appalachian Museum, U.T. Stadium, hiking, biking, and horseback trails. Shopping, restaurants, and easy interstate access are all close by.
