I’ve driven through East Tennessee before and I know I love it but I’m really not sure exactly where I want to buy land in Tennessee. Where are your properties located?
At TNLand.com, this is something we hear multiple times a day from people all over the country who dream of owning land and acreage in Tennessee. A majority of our properties are located in the southeast corner of the state positioned along the Cumberland Plateau. This begs the question, “How is Southeast Tennessee different than just East Tennessee?”
There’s actually much more of a difference than most people often think. Have you ever seen a home or log cabin built on “stilts” on the side of a mountain?
This is quite common throughout East Tennessee’s Smoky Mountains and on through the North Carolina mountains, as well. This can typically lead to high construction costs and very little usable acreage. For example, you may buy 2 acres but 1.75 of it is on the side of the mountain!
Southeast Tennessee, on the other hand, is the beneficiary of the aforementioned Cumberland Plateau. Stretching through southeast Tennessee from Alabama to Kentucky, the Cumberland Plateau is the longest hardwood forested plateau in the world! Let’s take our Jasper Highlands property located on Jasper Mountain in southeast Tennessee, for example. As you exit the I-24 exit ramp beginning your drive up the mountain (valley floor is approximately 650 ft) and ride only 6 minutes to the top (approximately 2,000 ft), you are greeted by beautiful, level, gently rolling, usable land such as this:
So you won’t see any homes built on “stilts” on our properties in southeast Tennessee yet the gently sloping topography welcomes the opportunity for an ideal walk out basement if desired. Thanks to mother nature’s Cumberland Plateau, you can have the perfect, usable mountain homesite without sacrificing the gorgeous views, elevation, or cool mountaintop breeze….and saving money on building costs doesn’t hurt, either.
Come see for yourself so you can get a better understanding as to why so many avid mountain property hunters end their search with TNLand.com in Southeast Tennessee.
Setting up a tour of our properties is simple, just give me a call at 888-777-5758 or send me a message with the day and time you plan on being here and we’ll take care of the rest (overnight accommodations on us!)
