This beautiful home is situated overlooking Watts Bar Lake with a
stunning panoramic view. Located in a quiet area away from the
hustle bustle of city life in laid back Spring City, Tn.
This was the heaviest snow Spring City has had in 6 years.
This area gets a few light snows a year and has only had one snow in six
years that made it difficult to get out. The yard is beautifully landscaped
with a white picket fenced area around the house for your four
legged friends or your children. The entire lot size is right at 2 1/2 acres.
There are gorgeous knock-out roses along one side of the fence,
assorted other roses along the inside front and climbing roses that grow
up the arbor at the gate. Flowering trees include, Cleveland Pear trees,
a Kwanza Cherry, three dogwoods and lots of small blooming
plants and bushes. There is a white Crepe Myrtle that blooms in the summer.

The back view off of the porch is the lake! Watch the bass boats go
speeding by during a Friday or Saturday fishing tournament. See the barge

sail boats, yachts, jet skis, and pontoon boats. Now it sounds pretty busy but
it's a quiet lake and your glimpses of these will be on the weekends and holidays mostly.

views of the sunrises.
