Riverview Ranch on the South Holston River

49 Acres    ·    Sullivan County, Bristol , TN    ·    $2,400,000
Riverview Ranch is a recreational family retreat located on the very productive fishing waters of the South Fork of the Holston River, also commonly known as the South Holston or the SOHO, in East Tennessee nestled within a pastoral community of working farms.  With a half mile of river frontage, boat access, walk-wade access, and breathtaking views of Holston Mountain within the Cherokee National Forest, this property offers a spectacular setting for entertaining, relaxing, fly-fishing, & hunting.  Known as one of the best trout fisheries on the East Coast, the South Holston tailwater is home to naturally reproducing brown trout that grow to 20 pounds and a plethora of consistent aquatic insect hatches. The property offers an attractive riverfront house with a spatial covered back porch & outdoor entertaining area and a 100-year-old-plus restored cabin both of which provide much space & room for guests to enjoy. This is the first time Riverview Ranch has been put on the open market to sell after being meticulously maintained by its longtime Owner since 1986. Principal Broker: William B.
