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 with access to backroads for cycling and hiking.
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 an hour-half 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.
Address: 5380 Brotherton Mountain Road, Cookeville 38056
