It’s true, you do get lots of square footage for your money in Tennessee. That’s what happens when a large, architecturally unappealing “home” is built in the middle of nowhere. Nobody in their right mind would pay big bucks for it. This mansion is located at 7159 Braveheart Lane in Ooltewah, TN and was built in 2005. The exterior is quite hideous and the interior isn’t the greatest, but I guess the price makes up for it. It boasts 16,822 square feet of living space with 8 bedrooms, 7 full and 3 half bathrooms and is situated on 4.64 acres of land. It is listed at $1,800,000.
