This breathtaking, one-of-a-kind getaway is up Lookout
Mountain from Fort Payne, AL, and is perfectly situated 1 hour from Chattanooga, 1 1/2 hours from Huntsville and Birmingham and 2 hours from Atlanta. It features an exquisite home on 10 acres +/- bordering on a deep canyon. It was originally constructed in 1982, but was extensively renovated in 2002-2003. The dining room, studio and master suite were added as were many upgrades such as hardwood floors throughout, granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, ceramic tile in bathrooms and laundry room and a new metal roof. The home overlooks a beautiful 70 foot cascading waterfall, and boasts approximately 3900 sq. ft. of living space including the 900 sq. ft. heated sun room. The sun room has a fully equipped second kitchen for outdoor entertaining and there is an additional 600 sq. ft. of porch that is screened and covered, from which you can hear the cascade of the waterfall. The home has 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths and 2 half baths, laundry room, workout room, separate dining room, and office. The large living room has vaulted ceilings and a beautiful soapstone wood stove set against custom built-in
bookshelves. Take your choice of master suites. The downstairs suite showcases a large bedroom convenient to the living room and dining area. The upstairs suite features a sitting area overlooking the waterfall, and a deep 2-person jetted hot-tub inlaid with glass is in the master bath. Additional buildings include a 1000 sq ft detached garage and workshop with storage above, a wood shed and a gazebo. The land is mostly wooded, but there is a 4-acre fenced horse pasture with shed, water and electricity. Additionally, there is a small campground featuring three RV spaces with full electrical, water and septic hookups. The price for this parcel is $389,000.
The second home showcases a lovely cottage sitting on a cliff overlooking the rushing stream at the bottom of a deep canyon, nestled amongst the trees for maximum privacy. It is 1680 sq. ft. on 11 acres (approx) with 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths with attached garage and includes a large heated and cooled sun room overlooking the canyon. The second residence is currently used as a well-established vacation rental, on track to gross over $30,000 this year. It would also make a superb full-time rental or could be an ideal, private in-law residence or a home for those adult children returning to your formerly empty nest. You can add the second home with approximately 11 acres for an additional $229,000.
Deep Step Creek runs through this entire property and there are numerous large rock formations to explore. Spring is absolutely breathtaking with lots of forsythia, mountain laurel, wild azalea, hydrangea and dogwoods. Autumn is
equally beautiful as the property is covered with hardwood forest, and the fall colors are spectacular. The opportunity is negotiable to purchase both homes furnished if desired. Lease-to-Own and/or Owner Financing may be available with substantial down payment.
