I was born and raised in Fairview, TN.  I grew up just a few miles from this property location and have ALWAYS loved this site where two creeks merged in the hollow both fed by springs.  I imagined a creek side cabin where I could step out over the creek and listen to the water fall over the rock ledges.  The sound that soothes...the smell of clean, cold spring water.  I dreamed of what could be.  Today, you can own this dream!  This very property is being sold for the Kiel Estate. - David Hudgins, auctioneer 

Let's visit this property at 7741 Caney Fork Road in Fairview, TN...

Pull onto the drive from Caney Fork Road and the setting will cause you to stop and gaze.  You are looking at the spring-fed creek, Caney Fork Creek, traversing its way toward you alongside the completely remodeled home.  Now you recognize the second creek, crossing the front of the property and joining Caney Fork Creek right in front of you.  Look to your right and you will see the remains of an old spring house.  That grassy area in front of the spring has produced some of the most beautiful and bountiful gardens in years past.
Continue to approach the home and eagerness to explore the inside overwhelms you.  If you were to walk through the house, you would open the back door to discover a small retreat, a "Get Away" cottage just waiting to be recreated.  If you walk up the sidewalk to this bonus structure, you will notice some "Country Music Stars Walk of Fame" embedded in the concrete.  A gift to the property from a previous owner.  But before we explore beyond the main home, let's take our time to enjoy all that has been done to the 3 bedroom home built especially to sit next to Caney Fork Creek.

What are those green plants in the creek? Answer: Watercress

Watercress is a dark, leafy green that grows in natural spring water. In the past, people have used watercress as little more than a garnish. However, these days watercress is seeing a resurgence in popularity as one of the latest super foods. Yes, I have eaten watercress.

There is a 10% Buyer's Premium added to the bid amount to determine the final purchase price.
