Also Gene my wife is Colombian and hails from a well to do family in Valle Dupar though she was raised in Barranquilla/Miami. She loves Tennessee as it has the same rolling hills and mountains of her old home. The people are of similar attitudes though i sometimes find colombians a little better off as far as education goes. We have never experienced any bigotry or alienation the way we do among all the "Diversity" where we live. There is a Mexican Gentleman who owns properties and several restaurants in Crossville and he loves it also.

Red face I live near Crossville

in Cookeville, about 30 miles west. Croosville and Cookeville are both great towns-clean, good housing stock, friendly people, cheap utilities, good hospitals and services, responsive government... I could go on and on. Is it perfect? No. No place is. I can't get some NY specialty foods (Italian), hard rolls and things. So what? We moved here from New York where my property taxes on a nice but not great house were $11,000 a year, going up 8-12% a year. Here I pay $1700, am in a great house on 6 acres overlooking a valley with my nearest neighbor about 700 feet away. Everyone's on a large lot and our neighbors are great. My utility costs are one third of NY's. We happened to find our house in Cookeville but we looked, too, in Crossville and if our "dream" house had shown up there we would have bought it.
Leaving NY was the one of the smartest things we ever did. Been here 3 years and love it. Why did I wait so long to move???.....

I think anywhere in Middle Eastern TN is good. If you are looking retire in 5 years, you may want to consider buying a home site in a community and then building later as you get closer to move. If you purchase now, you can borrow against the equity in your home site when you go to build. And trust me, you will see your land appreciate. There are many hot areas including Van Buren County. I just bought in a new planned community- mostly people looking for a place to retire in 5-10 years.

Default Crossville area

My husband and I are looking at the Crossville area also. I am wondering about shopping, especially foods. All we have here is WalMart and Piggly Wiggly. We eat alot of health foods, foods from Farmer's Market's, etc. We alos want to be near bookstores like Barnes & Nobles or Books A Million; are there any in the area? We are wanting about 5 acres, not in a subdivision. We are interested in the Cumberland Plateau area. We are both librarians and will be retiring in about 2 years and would like to buy land and build soon.
