Myers Point at Sewanee offers a rare and limited opportunity to become one of 24 owners enjoying a 480-acre private community that celebrates American architecture and lifestyle, featuring protected forests, cultivated lakes and panoramic bluff views. It is difficult to imagine a more magnificent perch than Myers Point at Sewanee.
The Sewanee, Tennessee acreage of Myers Point is only minutes from the University of the South. It has been owned and cared for by three generations of the Myers family, since the early 1900s. Ina May Myers, granddaughter of the original owner, and John Currier Goodson, the great-grandson of Confederate General Edmund Kirby-Smith, shared a vision for the land and in 2004, their vision became a reality, when the Myers family entrusted Goodson with the purchase and care of all 480 acres.
In keeping with a Frank Lloyd Wright approach and in the spirit of protective co-existence, work began to nurture this already glorious setting. A community barn, tree-lined pastures and quiet resting spots and walking trails are naturally situated around newly cultivated lakes and the bluff vistas, all shared by residents of Myers Point at Sewanee.
Walking, riding and biking trails provide a natural gateway from The Community into The Park. With every turn, the four miles of hiking trails uncover rare ferns, migrating birds, plant and animal life, waterfalls and age-old rock formations, all guarded by a conservation easement to protect the integrity and beauty of the land for generations.
Myers Point has been respectfully planned and harmoniously incorporated in the surrounding geography. Three hundred fifty-five acres have been dedicated to The Park, consisting of forest, horse and walking trails and breathtaking views of the Cumberland Mountains and protected by a Land Trust of Tennessee conservation easement.
The residential area comprises 125 acres and features twenty-four distinctive home sites blended with two lakes, meadows, a magnificent post and beam barn, gathering areas and spectacular viewpoints.
