The property has a three-mile deeded gravel driveway through Bear Hollow WMA that is very well maintained. There is a shared gate with the WMA off TN-16 and then a private gate upon entering the property three miles down the gravel driveway. Once on the property, you travel a quarter of a mile to arrive at the main house. All of the property’s structures are located near one another on top of the mountain. The main home and guest house sit on the bluff with incredible views overlooking Round Cove and the surrounding mountains. A few hundred yards from the main home is a 1-acre mountain pond with a Cypress post and beam pavilion. The pond is used regularly for fishing and a summertime swimming hole. Also located next to the main home is an organic garden with garden shed and chicken coop. There are ~70 acres on top of the mountain.
The property then descends to the valley below. Even with sections of considerable slope, the internal road system is very impressive making nearly all of the property accessible. As you move down the mountain’s side, there are secondary roads that extend along the benches typically taking you to a wildlife food plot. The valley land consists of ~300 acres and just rolls along for two miles transitioning from one well maintained food plot to another that all vary in size and offer a countless number of hunting locations and opportunities. There are 40-acres of food plots all managed in well-established clover stands. There are a total of 18 very nice box blinds of which 13 are on the ground and 5 are elevated. Plus, there are tons of ladder stands scattered around the property.
Noteworthy is that the property encompasses both sides of the mountain surrounding Round Cove giving an owner complete privacy and the ability to manage this property with no concern of outside or neighborly influences.
Main House (~5,475 sq. ft.):
This gorgeous home presides over Round Cove resting on the eastern brow of Bald Mountain. The views are amazing and the sunrises are out of this world. Constructed in 2005 with a major addition and renovations completed in 2016, this tasteful six bedroom, four-and-one-half bathroom residence is perfect for hosting family and friends. Mornings and evenings are best spent on the enormous back decks and covered porches, which take full advantage of the views. Coming from a timber background, the owners of this house paid incredible attention to the woodwork and materials used throughout the house. The house is entirely made of solid American hardwoods inside and outside. There is not a single piece of sheetrock in the house! Pecky cypress is a staple throughout the home along with wide plank white oak floors. There is a custom-built kitchen and a large stone fireplace.
The house is completely off the grid and powered by two 30kw diesel generators (one serving as the backup). Just below the house is a limestone spring providing the home’s water, which is filtrated through a commercial system. There are two geothermal systems for heating and cooling.
The house is designed to be a very comfortable living space for a small family, but to also have the ability to host a larger group of friends if so desired.
Guest House (~650 sq. ft.):
Located two hundred yards south of the main residence is the guest house, which also sits on the brow taking full advantage of the magnificent views. It includes one bedroom and one bathroom with a common living area and kitchenette. It provides the perfect accommodation for a guest requiring privacy and comfort.
The property also includes an equipment shed, hi-fenced garden and garden shed, dog kennel, chicken coop, and a pavilion on the lake.

The annual property taxes for Round Cove are approximately $13,600.
Much of the property is enrolled in Tennessee’s Green Belt Program. The Green Belt program allows certain land to be taxed on its present use instead of market value. The law is designed to preserve farm and forest land for valuable food and fiber and to maintain open space for public enjoyment by easing some of the burden of property taxes. The law limits the amount of land that qualifies for greenbelt to 1,500 acres per owner per county.
Green Belt is not a perpetual conservation easement. It is a program that helps large landowners pay reasonable property taxes.
