Property description

Have a real mountain experience at the newly renovated mountain home on 5+ acres (elevation 3500+). Situated on the actual state line between Georgia and North Carolina (the creek is the state line) and 12 minutes from Highlands, you'll have all the space and privacy you could want.

All furnishings are new, 2008 (except for the antiques, of course), as is most everything except the charm and character of the original house.

The pine paneling and oak floors in the living room give added warmth to the fireplace and those cool summer nights. Original artwork throughout by the artist/owner and local artists.

Leave your cares behind as you settle into a true rural mountain setting- if you don't want the country club or subdivision, the Artist's House is the real thing!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Though born in North Carolina, I reside in Fl and try to spend as much time in these beautiful mountains as possible. I found the perfect location on 6 acres about two years ago and spent over a year completely renovating and updating the house. I am a photographer-publisher, and enjoy hiking, traveling, and of course, photography.

Why the Owner Chose Highlands:
It's simply beautiful and the town of Highlands is one of the most charming mountain towns I've found, with great resturants, art galleries and shopping.
