About this listing
This stone home, hand-hewn by its property owner with rock from its quarry, offers a charm that can't be beat. Sitting on 280 acres, the property is a quiet respite from city life.
This Post WWII stone house was hand-hewn by its original owner who spent 10 years digging through the rocks on the property's quarry. Updated at the beginning of 2014, this working farm is within a half-day's journey to numerous Upper Cumberland attractions, trails, and waterfalls. If guests prefer access to the urban, a Nashville, Knoxville or Chattanooga trip is within one and a half hours (1.5 hours) journey. Numerous golf courses are a stone's throw as well. Guests are welcome to walk the trails on the property or cycle down Brotherton Mountain.

Two years ago, my husband and his brother secretly bought this 280 acre farm that sits atop Brotherton Mountain in Putnam County, Tennessee. I wasn't thrilled. Don't get me wrong, the land is beautiful...really beautiful. But, seriously? Didn't we have a little too much on our plates, I argued. Oh, but there was a stone house, and a perfect little barn, and blackberry thickets, and little overgrown lakes. Fun project, right? We'd done these types of things before, right?
Fast forward to 2016, when dozens and dozens of guests have enjoyed our little farm. Now I can truly say that the farm has been a blessing, even through all the design decisions and renovations that can extend people and budgets. Enjoy, people...enjoy the wandering cows, the tire swings, the rocking chairs, the pond. You have my persistent and visionary husband and brother-in-law to thank :)
