    Description

    This magnificent shingle and stone country estate in the mountains of Western North Carolina is conveniently located just 2 hours from Atlanta and 9 miles from the charming town of Highlands, NC. Designed by Tim Greene, this home gracefully nestles among 37 acres of old hardwoods at an elevation of 3,750 '. This rural setting offers pastoral and long range mountain views for seclusion and privacy within minutes from shopping and gourmet dining. Enjoy your coffee on the breakfast porch welcoming the rising sun, and cocktails on the patio captures exquisite afternoon sunsets. Each setting allows enjoyment of the beautiful gardens thoughtfully designed by Alex Smith Garden Design to enhance the boulder outcroppings and stone walls. There is a 1 1/2 acre stocked pond for fishing , canoeing, swimming or just relaxing on the dock. The home has 6 bedrooms, each with ensuite bathrooms. The master suite on the main level has his/her dressing rooms and baths. Upstairs are 3 guest bedrooms, and a second upstairs boasts a large recreation room, a bunk room and an additional bedroom, each with its own bath. These spaces are ideal for an office, workout area, or just overflow for guests and grandchildren. The large kitchen and adjoining butlers pantry/office are equipped with top of line appliances for entertaining for a few or a crowd. A large screened porch and adjoining patio are ideal for expanding dining and entertaining space. There are 5 wood burning fireplaces for the cool mountain evenings. Pegged oak floors throughout, hand hewn antique beams, and custom finishes add to the timeless charm and cottage appeal. The decor and details which adorn the interiors were orchestrated by nationally recognized Charleston designer, Amelia Handegan. An attached two car garage has built in cabinets for your storage needs. An equipment "barn" sits tucked among large rhododendrons, boxwoods and hydrangeas which adorn the property. This is truly an exceptional property!
