Historic Queen Branch Cottage could be yours! This charming farmhouse on 8.5+ acres was built by William Baty Dean sometime after the Civil War and was completely restored by an architect and carpenter duo with hearts for preservation. The Energy Star Certified home underwent complete renovation in 2008/09 including new plumbing, electrical, septic, well, roofing (with aged tin roof replaced over), high-efficiency heat pump and ht-pump water heater. The rare plank-style structure was updated with the addition of framing, abundant insulation and new pier footings. The home features a living room, formal DR, kitchen, master BR & bath located all on main. Ascend the original staircase and you’ll find a library and 2 other sleeping rooms.

The idyllic location will woo you with its flat yard, stream & original root cellar and smokehouse. The kids will surely make memories catching fireflies on the lawn. With public Little Tennessee River access just across the road, this home would make an ideal vacation rental or personal retreat  and it comes furnished and ready for company!
