Oh My!! A Giant Sized Single Rock Landslide in The Smokies
This morning there was news that a rock slide had occurred on Wears Valley Road (US Highway 321), just a few miles north of our office (as the crow flies) but in the Wears Valley community. I had to go that direction to take pictures of a new Gatlinburg area foreclosure that we will soon have listed and this is what I came upon:
Note that the fallen rock is a single chunk of the mountain that is at least twice the size of the car that is going by it! When those signs say, "Watch for Falling Rock", they ain't just whistling Dixie as the old saying goes. Believe it or not, this picture doesn't quite do justice to just how large the rock really is. It is a rough cube in shape, approximately as deep as it is tall and wide. You really could fit about two SUVs within the volume that this rock occupies. Even more amazingly, the rock came from the rather obvious void visible in the top right corner of the photo. That's right, it ROLLED to where it is now located. Now that had to be impressive...
Every once in a while, an opportunity arises that we just can't pass up and this fantastic log sided home certainly fell into this category. Private, without another home anywhere in sight, this 3-bedroom, 3-bath house with 3 master suites is located in the coveted Pittman Center area and is perfect as either a residence or a vacation home.
This stunning property features over 280 feet of pristine riverfront on the beautiful cascading white water of the Little Pigeon River and this is no postage stamp sized lot either. It is actually a huge parcel of just under 4 acres. From either of the full length decks, you can view & listen to the beautiful rushing river below. Inside, there is also plenty of room to spread out, with over 3,000 square feet of heated & cooled living space, with large rooms and lots of glass.
Should you ever become tired of being alone, Dollywood is less than 20 minutes away but you would never know it from how perfectly peaceful this location is:

Gatlinburg area sales rocketed past January 2016's tally and we haven't even got all of the sales reported yet. Because this is only the preliminary total, we could rocket past 2006's red-hot all time record of 210 sales. Here is the initial report of January 2017's blistering sales pace for Smoky Mountain residential real estate sales:
Because of some MLS data errors, January's average sales price is not shown on the report above, but hopefully will be soon...
