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.

Great house! Perfect location for our fishing trip.
House was great. Everything we needed.
Charming and Relaxing ! Beautiful views .
Matt, did a great job making sure we had everything we needed. Great communication and a wonderful clean home. Very special in its own way. If I could give 10 stars I would . Thank you Matt, for making our time there very comfortable.
Disappointed with the TVs. Couldn’t watch local channels, live sports, news, weather.
TV control is difficult to use. No local or live channels. Bug control people were in the house spraying while we were out. Left the invoice on the kitchen cabinet. Obviously they were inside with our things. Our food was on the counter not sure if it was sprayed??? Windows need cleaned. Would be nice to have blinds on the windows especially in the bedrooms and bathrooms. An information notebook would be nice on how to use TV, where boat launch is, directions and name of grocery store.
Wow. I’ve rented my house for two years solid on VRBO and never had a bad review. Bummer. I strive to communicate well with guests. I am always available via phone/text/email. It’s true, I don’t pay for local cable. I cut the cord long ago. However, I do have HBO, Netflix, Hulu, ESPN, and Amazon streaming services. The home is in the country which equates to no pest service = bugs/mice in the house. My pest service uses bug repellant that isn’t harmful to humans or pets and won’t spray your food for Pete’s sake. The bedrooms actually do have blinds. They simply pull down. A local grocery store, the park, and boat launches, are easily searchable and accessible on any phone map. I’m bummed you had a less than ideal experience. I truly believe a simple phone call would have remedied all of your concerns. A hotel might be a better choice going forward.
This is the second time staying here. Matt is awesome and available anytime needed. The interior of this house is so fun!
Loved it; we'll be back!
Wonderful, rustic, and remote. It was perfect!
Fun place to stay
What a great place to stay in Knoxville. We loved the funky farmhouse - the best compliment I can give is that it felt like we were visiting family - it felt like home. Matt thought of everything when he designed the living space and bedrooms - unique designs and it's very spacious. You simply can't beat the guitars and arcade games: Pac-Man, Donkey Kong and Frogger!!
