A View Worth Waking For

    I love to go on hikes in Cashiers, Highlands and surrounding areas.  One of my favorites is Chimney Top.  It’s exhilarating and beautiful, sometimes even hard but SO worth it once you get to the top.  Bald Rock is equally as self-satisfying a hike.  Whether you like to hike or just enjoy from a distance, wouldn’t it be nice to open your morning blinds on a bright, sunny day and take in both of these fantastic views?

    You can with this condo!  This location could not be more perfect.  Besides the year round views of these mountains, there is also a view of Meadow Lake and you are within walking distance to private Fairfield Lake.  You can’t get more peaceful than this condo in Emerald Crest, Sapphire Valley.  You can also enjoy the amenities of both an outdoor and indoor pool, steam room, exercise gym, walking track and others.

    This unit is very private at the end of a cul-de-sac with easy entry level access.  Tons of upkeep have recently been done on this condo including a total remodel of the kitchen with all new stainless steel appliances as well as a wine cooler and granite countertops.  This unit is priced right and a can’t miss.
