Property in E TN (Knoxville area)

Postby FastEddieB » Thu May 12, 2016 7:55 am

Karen and I live in N GA, but would love to have a base of operations nearer to Knoxville.

She's been shopping around, and stumbled upon this:

That's fronting on the Tennessee River in a rapidly growing part of TN. Permit was already obtained for a dock, though that expired.

We visited it yesterday. What we envision is a strip at least long enough for our Sky Arrow, and a hangar large enough to house at least the Sky Arrow and to back our travel trailer into as an "apartment". The realtor estimated about $30k to bring in utilities.

It would be a stretch for us to do by ourselves, but with one or two partners we could make it happen.

1) I know its a long shot, but might anyone be interested in partnering?

2) Does anyone know of similar property/land available in that area?

Thanks in advance - fasteddieb@mac.com if you're interested.

Eddie,

Got no idea what your criteria is but I stumbled across this: Image

Not nearly the size but might already provide many amenities you'd need to build.

Looks like the have lots for $75-$90K and lots with hangars for ~$200K.

Just a thought.

Thanks for that for comparison purposes, but Nashville is quite a haul from Knoxville.

Eddie -- Hensley Airpark is ~80 miles east of Knoxville on the edge of the mountains.

Seymore Airpark is 17 miles south of Knoxville and could be an option as well. A bit pricier due to proximity, probably.
