Other: The ad is older than 3 months.
This L&N railroad depot opened in early 1914 and is on approx. 2 acres of land located in Greenback, Tn. 37742, the building is 110 feet long and has 200 amp electric service, its own septic system, water meter with natural gas, cable, and DSL available. Greenback is in Loudon County and has very low property taxes and no town/city taxes ( 2009 county taxes for $225,000 assesment would be around $1,800 ), zoned for anything except heavy industrial, it can be used as a residence, commercial or professional use, etc. the atmospher is easy going. Greenback is approx. 30 miles southwest of Knoxville and close to Tellico Lake and the foothills of the great Smoky Mountains. I have dozens of photos and satellite/aerial photos, property plats etc. that I can email if interested. I have owned this property for 11 years and have decided to sell it, I am asking $225,000, a person will need to have the means to purchase as banks will not lend on a property that needs any work at all, this property needs work. Also included is a 24' wide by 105' long garage/storage building with 3 phase power, concrete floors. Old black & white photo taken around 1947 by L&N railway property inspector. There is a lot of local history associated witht his depot, the station master, Billy Jones, filled the post of station master from the day it opened in 1914 until his death in 1954, in 1918 he became a Loudon County Squire and performed over 3,500 marriage cerimonies in the depot! He also held small claims court there and I have had some of the older residents tell me that when they were children that some times a horse drawn buggy would be dismatled and reassembled on the peak of the building on Halloween, and lots more interesting stories! The photograph at the bottom of listing is of an architectural rendering that was comissioned in 1999.
I also have a super nice wooded waterfront lot ( 630 feet of water frontage ) on nearby Tellico Lake, only 3 1/2 miles from the depot that is also for sale, this would be a great oppoptunity for someone that has the means to buy both properties!! Thanks, Larry - Phone: 865 .
