In Rolling Eastern Tennessee, the Lush Lakeside Community of Tellico Village Has Wooded Neighborhoods, Three Golf Courses, a Marina and a Wide Range of Home Prices
Large, lush and established, Tellico Village is an all ages, master-planned community located on the western shore of 15,500-acre Tellico Reservoir (Tellico Lake in rolling eastern Tennessee. Although this beautiful development is not age restricted, it has many of the amenities that baby boomers are seeking in a retirement community.
Tellico Village started in 1986 after the completion of the Tellico Dam in 1979. Cooper Communities was the original builder, but over the years other developers have left their mark, and home sites are still for sale today. The community sits on 4,600 acres and has 40 miles of shoreline. There are nearly 3,400 homes and 6,000 peole here, many of them pre-retirees or retirees.
Quiet lanes wind their way through low density, thickly wooded neighboorhoods. A sense of privacy is felt as trees mostly obscure homes from one another. Through the foliage, water views, golf course views and distant Smoky Mountain views create a soothing, scenic tableau.
Housing stock, which is primarily single family homes with a few town homes, ranges from fairly average needing a little TLC to extraordinary. Many residences are brick ranch ramblers or brick raised ranch ramblers. At the higher end of the price scale, multi-story Colonials, Cape Cods and gorgeous custom homes are more common. The majority of homes sit in the woods, but many others line fairways or the lakefront.
Prices begin in the low- to mid-$100,000s and reach into the millions. Please verify these prices with a Realtor as they may change.
The amenities, some of which require a fee for use, are what many people love most about Tellico Village.
