PUTNAM COUNTY – The luxury housing market remained level in August with six houses again selling for above the $700,000 mark. The top homes were all located in the eastern half of the county stretching from central Cookeville to Glade Creek.
The top home sold sits on 84.11 acres on Glade Creek Road and brought a sale price of $1.1 million. The 6,690 square-foot, three-bedroom, three bath home sold for $164 per square foot, down from last month’s high of $203. The home features a 2, 700 square-foot main floor with a 790 square-foot loft with its own HVAC & mountain views. There is also a heated 3200 square-foot lower level 3 car garage, shop and storage areas, as well as storm rooms.
Swimming pools are still not a priority for luxury homes with only two of the top homes touting that feature. Acreage is important to luxury buyers with four of the top houses sitting on five acres or more.
Here are the most expensive home transactions in Putnam County for August 2022.
