Step back in time and own a piece of history! Echo Hills Farm consists of an extraordinary 291+ acres of gentle rolling pastures and forests that offer panoramic mountain views rivaling any found in the South. Located in the foothills of beautiful Northeast Tennessee, this agricultural dream provides all the amenities for bountiful living in today's world, with an abundance of water, pristine land, food security, and a completely fenced property ready for livestock. This serene, tranquil setting features two springs, three creeks, and a swimmable, fishable, spring-fed pond. There are equipment sheds and two working livestock barns, as well as a cozy house for farm management staff, an amazing historic log cabin home, and numerous incredible building sites. Originally part of a Cherokeehunting ground, the central valley of Echo Hills farm was granted to a Baptist minister in 1786. The log cabin at the north end of the valley dates back to the early 1820s. Chestnut logs sourced from the property were used for the walls, along with crude handmade bricks, suggesting an origin before manufactured bricks were available in the area. A saddle-maker named Everett Mahoney occupied the cabin soon after its construction and hosted horse races down the central valley. Stagecoaches between Jonesborough and Kingsport stopped to water horses and passengers at one of the farm's gushing springs. The current owners are children of a physician who, along with a local farmer, established a thriving dairy herd of award-winning Holsteins. The children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren of this physician have vacationed in the cabin for the past 75 years, swimming and boating in the pond and roaming the woods and hills. This is a truly unique and remarkable property in an idyllic location with easy access to small, quaint towns such as Jonesborough and Blountville. Short drives take you to the Tri-Cities, Knoxville, and Asheville with their larger cultural, medical, and business facilities, three major airports, great schools, a casino, etc. For the outdoor enthusiast there are beautiful lakes, golf courses, and hiking/biking trails. The larger mountains nearby host several ski areas. An additional perk is the desirable tax benefit of owning property in TN. If you are seeking a lovely residence, an investment opportunity, or a weekend getaway, this could be your farm!
