Beautiful Tennessee Mountain Land Property
Ocoee Ridge is a new private gated community that
overlooks the Cherokee National Forrest in Tennessee. This mountain
property is located in the southeastern part of Tennessee in Polk
County. The county is divided into three parts with the National forest
running through the middle. There is three rivers that run through our
county, the Ocoee, Hiwassee, and the Conasauga. The Ocoee river is known
for white water rafting and was the site of the 96 Olympics. The
Conasauga river has been identified as one of the cleanest rivers in the
south. The Hiwassee river is best known for fly fishing. Each of these
rivers are minutes away from Ocoee Ridge's property.
This Mountain land development is one of the first
large mountain ranges that you will see traveling north from Florida.
Ocoee Ridge's Mountain Property elevation is 1,100 feet above sea level.
Our property looks directly into Big Frog Mountain elevation 4,186,
Chilowee Mountain elevation 3,012, and Sugar loaf Mountain elevation
1,646. Each of these mountains are in the Tennessee Cherokee National
At the base of these Tennessee Mountains is Parksville
Lake. The lake has 50 miles of shore line, 7.5 miles long and is 2,000
acres in size.. The locals and tourist enjoy recreational boating and
fishing on the crystal clear water. Kings slew boat ramp on Parksville
Lake is just two miles away from Ocoee Ridge's gated entrance.
Ocoee Ridge's Tennessee mountain land covenants are
simple but have a few particular points. The exterior design must have a
rustic cabinish design. To produce this theme there is no brick allowed
in the development property. The foundation must be stack stone. Siding
can be cedar shake, lap, board and batten or any other material that
achieves a natural style home. Our property has a 1800 sf building
minimum first floor, and a 2200 sf for homes with a second level.
One issues for any new land or property owner is land
taxes. The land tax on Polk County Tennessee property is 2.99%. Example:
a piece of land or property with a home in Polk County Tennessee valued
at $400,000, take 25 % = $100,000 x 2.99% = $2,990 is your annual Polk
County Tennessee land and property tax. Compare land and property tax in
Polk County Tennessee to land and property taxes in Florida. In Florida
a tax rate of 2%, land and property tax's would be $8,000 using $400,000
as a value. There would be a savings of $5,010 per year. On a 20 year
bank note you would save $100,200 living in Ocoee Tennessee compared to
Ocoee is a small community. We have a few small
restaurants and shops that are family ran. For a larger selection of
restaurants and shops Cleveland Tennessee is 20 minutes away,
Chattanooga is 40 minutes away and Atlanta is 2 hours away.
We have a lot to offer at Ocoee Ridge. I think it
would be worth your time to see if Ocoee Rige is right for you.
