About the Property

One of very few homes right next to the water of Center Hill Lake! Beds for 12

We would love to share our beautiful home on Center Hill Lake with you and your family! It is very unique in that it is one of only a few homes on the lake located on the water. You can, literally, back your boat from the house right into the water. While spending the day out boating you can drop off anyone who needs a rest at the house and then pick them back up with ease. It is a 50 yard paved walk to the boat launch!
The home is two levels. It has 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths, but has beds for 12. The upstairs has a covered back porch for easy parking and handicap access. You can actually access both the upstairs of the home and the downstairs without using stairs if needed.
The kitchen has modern appliances and is fully stocked with dishes, utensils and amenities, including microwave, blender, coffer maker, crock pot and griddle. There is a large dining room table and smaller side table if you need more seating.
The upstairs family room has a 50 inch HD TV and DVD player with DISH cable, including ESPN. There is plenty of seating for large groups and a selection of DVDs and board games for the family.
There is spacious front porch that runs the length of the home and is accessed through two separate, beautiful sliding doors. There is a large amount of outdoor seating for watching all the wildlife and a large gas grill.
On the lower level you can play games on the ping pong table or separate pool table, or watch games on the 50 inch HD TV in the downstairs family room!
There is also a laundry room with washer and dryer.
Have fun in the large front yard playing ball or picking apples from one of the 3 apple trees that bear fruit in mid to late summer. You can also enjoy a fire out under the stars and roasting smores in the fire pit near the house. There is also a canoe to carry down to the water to quietly explore the lake!
We are located just 15 minutes from I-40 by car. It is just under an hour to Nashville International Airport and is a very easy drive. We are 15 minutes from the town of Cookeville, where Tennessee Tech is located. There is every restaurant you can imagine, along with movie theaters, bowling alley and roller skating in case you have a rainy day. We are less than 10 minutes by car from Cookeville Boat Dock Marina. By boat, we are less than 10 minutes from Hurricane Marina and are located right at the entrance to Mine Like Creek - famous for its wakeboarding and water skiing conditions.
Whether you are just wanting to have a large place for several families to meet, a place right on the water with easy access for boating, a mile of walkable shoreline for exploring and fishing, or thousands of acres of adjacent US Corp of Engineers property for hunting, we think you will have a great time at our home!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We are a family from middle Tennessee who fell in love with Center Hill Lake when we moved here 15 years ago.

Why the Owner Chose Baxter, TN, USA:
We love how Center Hill Lake has such a pristine shoreline with no docks and it just feels like you are out on a "mountain lake", but we wanted the function of being able to just be able to put the boat right in the water from our place and not have to drive to a marina. It took years of looking, but this setup was worth it.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Nearby waterfalls with great hiking, location right on the water, two levels in the home to spread out and easy access to Cookeville and Nashville!
