Enter into the tree shaded, emerald green lawns of the stately Cole-McClellan house sitting on 5 +/- acres and you know you are home. This historic, park-like Sullivan County treasure has been owned by only 3 families. The original log portion was built in 1785 by the Cole family and two years later enclosed in a larger frame by the McClellans. By the time of the Civil War the entire home was constructed within its present hand fired brick exterior and beautiful wood trim had been added. The home has seen such illustrious visitors as Thomas Edison, Harvey Firestone and Henry Ford, who traveled here in 1906 in an open touring car. They stopped at this mansion for a visit to see a ''well-run Tennessee farm.'' The well maintained manor features sturdy white Doric columns and a shady, deep-set, wrap-around veranda. The home has 4 spacious bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths, a wood-burning fireplace, foyer, parlor, living room, enclosed sunroom and laundry room. The large country kitchen still has its original charm with added modern amenities, and steps leading up to a large storage room with original freestanding wash basin. The laundry room is conveniently located right beside the kitchen. Yesterday's genteel parlor is a perfect pallet today for your antiques and decor. High ceilings, spacious rooms and tall windows lend themselves to light, airy rooms with plentiful storage from built in shelves, cabinets and nooks. You'll appreciate surprises such as a cozy powder room off of the foyer, tucked beneath the stair steps.The Cottage home lives up to its name, with so much rustic charm. It has one bedroom and one full bath, a spacious laundry room, living room and large country kitchen with tall cabinets, great storage built-ins.It's a place of serene privacy, yet close to city amenities. The level acreage and old growth hardwood trees backs up to beautiful, babbling Creek, which runs from a small waterfall through the property. River otters and deer are periodic visitors.
