Home and 16-Acres Close to Downtown
Highlands, NC 28741
This fanciful must-see mountain estate is located close to Hwy 64 between Highlands and Cashiers, NC. Packed with imaginative touches, this reclaimed log & stone mountain home is tucked away on over sixteen gently rolling acres. Surrounded by a lush and ultimately private forest perimeter, the gated entry opens to a paved road that encircles the property. With delightful farmhouse flourishes and an interior of exposed logs reclaimed from a Charlotte train depot, the chunky chink joints, and solid stone walls all hearken back to homes crafted by the area’s earliest residents. Stone and reclaimed heart pine wide plank floors, solid wood ceilings with exposed beams, an antique wood stove, and a stone fireplace all add to the early settler ambiance.
But, in a nod to modern convenience, the updated kitchen includes a gas range and oven, Sub Zero refrigerator, stainless hood, stainless back splash, and solid wood cabinets with rustic hardware. And for those who truly love comfort and convenience, an elevator with scissor gates should please even the most discriminating home buyer.
There are plenty of solid wood windows throughout the house; both sash and casement with transoms for great light and fresh air. In addition to two bedrooms on the main living floor, the upper most story currently serves as an adorable children’s playroom that’s spacious enough to sleep two. Home is currently approved for a expansion permit for a 4-bedroom septic making this property shovel ready for an addition or construction of a guest cottage.
Outdoors a large, gently sloping lawn has been cleared and beautifully landscaped. Grapevines, a blackberry bramble, blueberry bushes, and an apple orchard make this front yard a veritable farmer’s market.
Just out the front door there is a large stone terrace and pavilion with stack stone seating in-the-round and plenty of room for outdoor cooking and dining. A short walk will take you to your own private pond. A large double-door barn for storage or workshop is nearby. Conveniently located to both Cashiers and Highlands, this property is large enough to allow for additions to the existing home or even the construction of another home. This magical mountain hideaway is a one-of-a-kind opportunity!
