The Neighborhood- Overview
The Glens of Antrim is in a secluded mountain cove off the beaten track. Traffic is virtually non-existent and the area is crime free. Neighbors are friendly and helpful. Homes are on large lots and somewhat scattered across two subdivisions. It’s a short drive to a walking entrance to the Smoky Mountains National Park on the other side of the cove - perfect for hiking. The mountain cove area is often rocky and mostly wooded with lots of tall hardwoods, evergreens, and other foliage. Occasional wildlife: rabbits, turkey, deer, and on very rare occasions black bears.
The Neighborhood- Getting Around
Paved roads all the way to the property. Last 1.5 miles of access roads involve steep inclines. Neighborhood roads are well suited for a nice nature walk with moderate to steep inclines. 4-wheel drive vehicle may be helpful in the winter months. Occasional snow in the late Fall to early Spring months can present access and egress issues, so be sure to discuss this with the owners.
