As you pass through the gates, under a canopy of black walnut, ash and dogwood trees, there are three timber bridges crossing creeks and fern beds leading to the house and trout pond. A Bavarian style covered bridge opens into dense woods. The home is built on the granite mountainside atop Tennessee dry stacked stone foundations, overlooking a rushing stream and a pond. The pond is brimming with brook, rainbow, and golden trout. Enveloping the home and grounds, are beautiful flora that make this area so appealing. Mountain laurel, rhododendron, dogwoods, azaleas, irilliums and black eyed susans are just a few of the wonderful array of wildflowers that can be seen from the porch and windows of Walnut Grove.
