Location

Located in northwest Georgia, Turkey Ridge sits at the most northern reaches of McLemore Cove and tucked into the foothills of Pigeon Mountain. McLemore Cove is a 15-mile valley between Lookout and Pigeon Mountain that consists of rolling pastures, tall silos, and shady country lanes.  Recognizing that the cove is indeed special, the state and the National Register of Historic Places has declared it the McLemore Cove Historic District. Encompassing 50,000 acres in Walker County, the Cove is by far the largest of Georgia’s eight rural historical districts. 

 

 

Notably, the property is only 30 minutes from downtown Chattanooga, TN. Chattanooga has become one of America’s most dynamic middle-size cities with an array of exciting venues for nearby residents. New York Times is quoted as saying, “Not too small and not too big, Chattanooga is really the undiscovered gem of Tennessee.” This convenience to all of Chattanooga’s amenities is a real benefit to owning Turkey Ridge.

 

For those wanting to call Turkey Ridge home, there is a quality public school system located in Chickamauga.  Less than 10 minutes away from the front gate is Chickamauga Elementary School and Gordon Lee Middle and High School.  The school system spans the full K-12 range.
