If you are looking to relax in a country setting, that is close enough to enjoy Knoxville and Oak Ridge, you can't go wrong here. The home is peacefully located on 5 acres. The rolling hills framing Melton Hill Lake are beautiful! It's awesome here. This 2100 sqft home was remodeled down to the studs in 2016. It is equipped with 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, and an open floor plan with a kitchen that overlooks the living-room/dining room. The master suite sports a jacuzzi tub (in the bedroom!) and a large dual-headed custom shower in the master bath. The back patio is perfect for enjoying the country setting. Bring your boat as the public launch is just a half mile down the street and/or bring your off road vehicles as Wind Rock Off-Road Park is only 30 minutes away. There is plenty of room for trailer parking. Come relax and still be close enough to drive to downtown Knoxville or Oak Ridge in no time.

About Matt Bell
I'm a local medical professional that enjoys home remodeling as a hobby.
Matt Bell purchased this House in 2015
Why Matt Bell chose Oak Ridge
Coming into town for a University of Tennessee event or to play at Windrock Off Road Park, or simply to enjoy a country setting close to town? This is the place for you. The property is my primary residence and I love it. The five acres are quiet, beautiful, and perfectly located in the country. I am located in West Knoxville 15 minutes from I-40, 20 minutes from a large shopping and restaurant area (Turkey Creek) in Knoxville, and 30 minutes from downtown Knoxville/Neyland Stadium or Wind Rock Off-Road Recreation Area.
What makes this House unique
The property is very private and quiet. I remodeled it to be fun and funky. The house is perfect for a family or friend group to enjoy. There is a lake just down the road if you are visiting in warmer weather. There is a wood burning stove if you are visiting in colder weather. Every season is gorgeous here.

Returning Visitor, Excellent
Overall the farm house was excellent. This is the 2nd time I have stayed here and everything was as advertised. Great place to stay for a getaway or if you are planning on visiting Windrock Off Road Park. Plenty of parking space for trailers and vehicles. Will be coming back again in the future.
Idyllic Retreat in a Funky Farmhouse
It's been a week, but I still miss the Funky Farmhouse. I stayed for nearly a month there, and it wasn't long enough. It was a comfortable, relaxing, and restorative place to stay. Many times I traveled just down the road to Melton Hill Park by the Clinch River. Even more often I took advantage of being between Oak Ridge and Knoxville and traveled to both. The wealth of rivers and lakes in the area made for a delightful retreat.
And there was always the Farmhouse to return to. Funky it may be, but it also had a fully modern kitchen. That made it easy to prepare anything, and easier to clean up. The showers have to be seen to be believed. It was wonderful to be able to move around without bumping into the sides, or even to sit down (!) if the mood struck.
It was also interesting to be out where the loudest noise was often the wind rustling the leaves. One morning a pair of turkeys were courting in the front yard. A couple of times I spooked a groundhog as I walked outside. I also enjoyed sitting under the roof on the rear patio and listening to the rain on the roof.
I'd love to be back, and am planning my next visit. I'd recommend this property to anyone!
This house was the perfect place for us to stay and get ready for our friend’s wedding at the Venue at Lenoir City. Thanks Matt!
