Historic Home built circa 1890, “The Giraffe House” is a Cashiers, NC gem on nestled on 5+ usable acres of gently sloping, mostly cleared mountain meadow bordered by a splashy bold creek.

This authentic 3 BR, 2 BA Western Carolina farmhouse has been lovingly restored and maintained by the current owners. Flower gardens, an apple orchard, bunkhouse, chicken house, and old root cellar are some of this home’s features that recall the mountain life of early Smokey Mountain settlers.
Imagine the freestanding bunkhouse a hundred years ago; workers helping to harvest the apple orchard might well have taken up residence for the duration. Breakfast each morning would have most likely included fresh eggs from the chicken house. In addition to being an historic home, Giraffe House is fully equipped for its owners to experience farm to table cooking from their own bounty.
There is plenty of near-level land surrounding the house that is well suited for both food and flower gardening. A cozy fire pit is already in place and ready to welcome you and your guests to a mountain sunset or moon rise with the crisp smell of evergreen and the sound of a running stream nearby. This historic home is more than a house, it is a lifestyle. Fresh vegetables from the backyard, high altitude hikes through the Smokey and Blue Ridge Mountains, live music on the Village Green in Cashiers each summer, and incredible shopping and dining in nearby Highlands.
Truly one-of-a-kind, this property is convenient to town and in one of the area’s most upscale and historic neighborhoods near Mountaintop Golf & Lake Club, Trillium, and Old Edwards Club. This idyllic farmhouse is the perfect place for making memories!
