Bobby and Beth Ellison of Ellison Realty specialize in helping families and retirees find their dream lakefront property.
Here in East Tennessee, rolling meadows are back-dropped by the misty peaks of the Smoky Mountains and Summer days mean relaxing on the beautiful lakeside. Norris Lake, one of the first lakes created by the Tennessee Valley Authority in the 1930's, is surrounded by over 800 miles of beautiful shoreline and 75% of Norris Lake is protected by TVA, Wildlife Management Areas and State Parks. It is one of the cleanest and deepest lakes in the system offering unparalleled deep water access for large boats. There is no industry on Norris Lake and it's clarity runs 25 feet in many places, making it perfect for water sports, amimal life and fishing. Norris Lake has it all...it's recreational use is far more numerous than any of the other tributary reservoirs in the TVA river system.
Amazingly, real estate prices in the areas around Norris lake are some of the most reasonable in East Tennessee. The local county property tax rate of $1.79 reflects just how economical it is to have your dream home here PLUS Tennessee is one of the few States in the USA that currently has no income tax. Union County, on the southern end of the lake is just 23 miles from Knoxville, Tennessee. The generally low cost of living, low crime rate and small town atmosphere in addition to the convenience of a larger city within 30 minutes drive attract visitors and new home owners alike.
Proximity to Knoxville (and and the tourist areas of Sevierville and Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park) offer many advantages to local residents including increased entertainment options.
