Go on vacation with no guilt, spoil yourself  but not the environment.  Solar panel powered home that makes you feel good about yourself.

Finally, crisp and chilly air, far distant mountains with the clouds settling in the valleys, our perfect time of year.  Spectacular, yes, that’s the word I was looking for.  What a setting, what a view, what a house!  Family fun or a romantic get-a-way, your choice.  Perfect for two or up to six.  Tucked away, private and a view just for you.  Very modern style home (post and beam) with everything you could want or need.  Parking is plentiful and easy turn around.  This home is to the east of downtown Franklin – toward Highlands.

Walk in the door and be amazed, the living area is spacious with floor to ceiling windows, an open concept, flowing right into the dining and kitchen areas.

Tucked behind the action area on this main level are two bedrooms and a shared bath.

Upstairs – well, talk about a master suite – this is it.  First you land in the loft area, perfect for reading or just meditating.  This flows immediately into the master bedroom with an outstanding bathroom area, special touches abound everywhere with rare hardwoods, marbles and glass.  Then, the light and windows from the master bed. you won’t get out of bed, I promise.

From the main living area, you can proceed to the lower terrace level where you can have a game of pool or pick a spot to read.  The gang will love this area, keeps the rowdy ones all in one place and out of the cook’s way.  Game night it is!

Ready for some luxury?  Imagine sleeping on “My Pillows” rated #1 and Gisa Sheets, wow!  Don’t get spoiled.  And further we have a six-person hot tub.  You’ll never go back down the mountain!  Also, a fire pit off the hot tub area.

This home is to the east of downtown Franklin and 8/10th mile up a gravel road.  You don’t need four-wheel drive but a vehicle that can climb a tad on gravel would be nice to have.

May not be suitable for small children, many open stairways. Elevation – 2654.

Cell phones work very well in this location. MiFi Jet Pack Internet provided at no charge if you choose not to use your data plan.

You can use the VoIP service offered on most phones (Voice Over Internet Protocol).

We live in a very rural area without garbage pick-up, plus an abundance of wildlife that will surely go through your trash.  Please keep trash inside and take a load with you each time you leave the home and drop at one of the recycling centers (you are provided detailed information and directions).  If we haul your trash, there will be $25 deducted from your security deposit.

Sorry to add, this home is NOT pet friendly.
