Foothills Pointe is located on the east shoreline of Tellico Lake in East Tennessee.
A short history of this community begins with three individuals purchasing a 110 acre peninsula in Greenback known as “Big Hill”. They originally named the development “Foothills Village” only to later rebrand it as “Foothills Pointe”. In 1987, they chartered the homeowners association and in January of 1988, 24 lots were sold to 15 families.
Today, there are a total of 195 parcels within Foothills Pointe. In 1988, the developers built three villas and the lakeside community clubhouse. Foothills Pointe Owners’ Association members have access to two tennis courts, a salt water pool, community docks with approximately 60 slips, boat launch ramp, clubhouse and pavilion.
The architectural committee is required to review plans to any new residences. The minimum square footage for new construction is 1,400 square feet. Utilities include septic tanks with pump transfer, natural gas, electric and water for all lots.
