Take a journey into the past and the future at Laurel Park Estate, a stunningly exquisite 8 acres secretly nestled in the pastoral valley of Laurel Ridge yet minutes from downtown historic Cleveland, TN. Laurel Park is adorned with cobblestone walks, mountain rock walls, sparkling fountains, quaint wooden bridges, and acres of pristine landscape. Three different, but complimentary living structures are spread comfortably across the high ground fronting Candies Creek. Entering the gracious estate through stone & wrought iron electronic gates, at the end of a tree lined drive and behind the central roundabout you will discover Laurel Manor, the first iteration of which was built in 1987. Lovingly maintained, thrice updated, and enlarged, the Manor is reminiscent today of an old-world French country family estate.
