Only 30 minutes from downtown Chattanooga, Split Tree Farm is 195± acres of gorgeous, rolling countryside located in one of North Georgia’s most cherished areas, McLemore Cove. A pastoral valley between Lookout Mountain and Pigeon Mountain, McLemore Cove is 15 miles of picturesque farmland and shady country lanes.
Split Tree is a farm of meandering pastureland mixed with mature hardwood forests that offers stunning views of the surrounding farmland and the mountains. The farm’s open land, minimal development, and numerous building sites make it the perfect place to set up a charming family farm, an equestrian or cattle operation, or a recreational retreat. This property has been well maintained and offers an incredible opportunity to become an owner of one of the Cove’s treasured farms. Split Tree had been owned by the same family and had not been on the market since the 1870s.

“For a property with the price of Split Tree, it is hard to find everything it offers. It has gorgeous views, the perfect mix of open land and hardwood forests, and its proximity to the amenities of Chattanooga is incredibly convenient. This property has been in the same family since the late 1800s and truly offers a rare opportunity to purchase a spectacular piece of McLemore Cove.”
Currently, the property only has modest improvements and it provides the perfect landscape to build structures with stunning views. Specifically, the hilltop view is sensational and would make for an incredible main house. Buried power is located in a number of spots deep into the property. There is county water in the center of the property as well as an already-in-place septic field. There is a very nice, partially paved driveway that takes you into the heart of the property.
Cabin: The property has a small, quaint 576± square foot authentic Appalachian, handmade cabin with one bedroom, one bath, a living room, kitchen, loft, and porch.
Guest Cottage: There is a small guest cottage with a living area, kitchen and a full bathroom.
Pole Barn: The property has a 100’X80’ pole barn constructed in 2009 for storage of farm equipment and to support the farm’s operations.
With the perfect balance of open land and mature forests, the recreational opportunities at Split Tree are endless and it could easily be customized to fit any family’s interests. For years, the farm was used for equestrian purposes with fencing already in place. In recent years, a local cattleman has managed the fields for hay production, so the property has very healthy and well-maintained fields. Split Tree is the perfect property for any equine interests.
As to be expected, this undisturbed area of north Georgia is home to an abundance of wildlife. Deer and turkey thrive in this habitat and can consistently be found on the property. There is great open space for managing other hunting or outdoor interests.
