The Marlin Home
When Dawn and Tommy Marlin first began entertaining the idea of leaving their Valleybrook home of over 30 years, one thing took precedence over all else – finding a home with a lake view that didn’t come with a lengthy commute. After seeing the property for the first time, the couple knew they had struck gold and immediately got to work figuring out how to turn the tract of land into an oasis where comfort and convenience were at the forefront.
“To build on this lot, you have to get approval from the TVA, and that’s a process that can take the better part of the year,” explains Dawn. “We were very fortunate in that the people we purchased the lot from had already done that, so we were able to really come in and start designing our dream home.”
