“The opportunity to live adjacent to Lost Cove and Champion Cove is a once in a lifetime circumstance,” continues Goodson.

Myers Point at Sewanee, an exclusive craftsman community in Franklin County, will hold open houses on June 3 and 4 to coincide with holiday celebrations in downtown Sewanee. Visitors are welcome to tour the 24-lot luxury development following the town parade from 4:00 pm until dark on Saturday and from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm on Sunday according to local developer John Currier Goodson.

“The town of Sewanee is truly unique in that is nurtures an authentic, small town community while the influence of the University of the South brings a level of cultural sophistication to the area that few small towns experience,” explains Goodson. “You may feel like you’re dropping in on Mayberry during the Fourth of July weekend but in the local coffee shop you’re likely to be having conversations with people who are world travelers, celebrities or leaders of industry. It is hard to believe you’re only a couple of hours’ drive from several major cities.”

Myers Point at Sewanee offers a rare and limited opportunity to enjoy a 480-acre private, gated community located on Tennessee mountain land adjacent to the University of the South Domain and overlooking Lost Cove and Champion Cove. The uniquely located property, with its old growth forest, waterfalls and panoramic bluff views, has been put into a permanent conservation easement during the recently completed Lost Cove Campaign conducted jointly by the University of the South and the Land Trust for Tennessee.

“The opportunity to live adjacent to Lost Cove and Champion Cove is a once in a lifetime circumstance,” continues Goodson. “Archaic Indians lived there at least 9,000 years ago and there have been very few inhabitants since that time making it an extraordinary time capsule. You can walk there from Myers Point.”

Potential homeowners may chose between home sites ranging in size from 2 – 6 acres; all with either bluff frontage or lake front acreage located in the residential area of Myers Point named The Community. The 355 acres of common area includes three stocked lakes, a community barn, fire pit, walking trails and resting benches located along the lakes and bluff in The Community as well as 330 acres of forested land along the bluff side known as The Park.

Future open houses are scheduled for the weekends of August 21, October 2 and November 3. Potential buyers may also contact Goodson at the Myers Point Sales Office, 931) 968.1127, to arrange a private, personal tour at any time.
