About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 9

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.

Green Acres meets LA

  • 4 of 5

Don't be fooled by the exterior first impression, this little gem is top drawer. Beautiful country setting, tucked into one of the many curves in the road. This farm house is fun,funky yet modern and sophisticated in its use of concrete countertops and spacious bathrooms with modern faucets and large walking shower. The den is large with nice leather furniture.

Neat Interior!

  • 4 of 5

My family enjoyed the style of the home’s interior. It was very comfortable for my family. The outside was not conducive for my children to play outside but we had a busy weekend so that was not an issue. I would return to this property if in the Knoxville area again.

Don’t let the outside fool you! Nice, quiet location perfect for relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

When we first pulled in the driveway my kids were wondering what kind of place I had rented for us, but once inside they were pleasantly surprised. My 12 year old son immediately went to the arcade game and began playing...and played it all the time we were at the house. My daughter enjoyed being able to watch her show on Netflix and having her own room. The master bedroom and bath are very nice, being on the opposite side of the house from the other two bedrooms.

The evenings outside were very pleasant. My husband and I sat outside with a glass of wine and watched the fireflies dance in the trees by the creek. In the morning we watched three deer graze by the creek, about 10 yards from the kitchen window.

If I were to have any suggestions they would be to put blinds/curtains on the bathroom windows and a patio set on the back porch. We would have loved to have eaten as a family out there in the evening.

Overall, very nice stay and would definitely stay here again! Thanks, Matt, for sharing your home with us!

PS. This art teacher LOVED seeing all your daughter’s artwork throughout the house! She is very talented! Keep creating, young lady!

Returning Visitor, Excellent

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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!
