Lake Escape Home & Personal Paradise

A beautiful destination home designed to be part of its natural setting, yet fully equipped for luxury living. Perched on ‘Half Moon Ridge,’ views surround you–Smokey Mountains one way, Tellico Lake on the other. Wake up to Chilhowee Mountain freshly painted by the sun and fall asleep to a star-studded sunset beneath an endless sky.


Equipped Kitchen

Solid natural-stained Maplewood cabinetry, high-quality appliances and a sink that overlooks the ever-changing light patterns on Chilhowee Mountain.

Ample Room to Feel at Home

Two offices or bedrooms occupy the lower level with a library sitting room in between. It’s plumbed and wired for a second kitchen and would make a great media and play room for kids or a secondary entertaining area. There is also a spacious secure room and a huge storage space.

Large Workshop

Hone your favorite craftsman skills in this well-equipped, large workshop. The exterior shed roof protects equipment. The second story hosts a studio, storage and covered pistol range.

Rustic Treehouse

For the most “off-the-grid” feel, spend some time in the primitive treehouse. While rustic, it is equipped with essential basics like electricity.

Spacious Master Bedroom & Bath

Wake up to blue skies in this airy 16’ by 20’ master bedroom. Spacious, yet private, its windows offer some of the best views in the house. The bed is seven steps from the hot tub, which overlooks the pond and the wooded high ridge. The luxury shower is plenty big enough for two.

Outdoor Living Spaces

Relax and enjoy the views or entertain on multiple decks, covered porches and patios accented with wildflower gardens. Host guests around the fire pit, or wind down in the private hot tub with the mountains as your backdrop.

Wild Japanese-Style Gardens

What’s in bloom? Gaze out on the nicely matured “wild” Japanese-style gardens and see. They’ve been intertwined with the natural rock reef that surrounds the home. From there, explore more of the natural landscape, awash with blooms from hundreds of species of woodland flowers.

Outdoorsman Activities

Ride the impressive network of trails by day, sleep under the stars at the campsite by night, and practice your shot at the 100-meter shooting range.
