                                  Owner info

                                  Year Purchased: 2005

                                  About the owner: My husband and I have owned & managed a landscape company in Palm Beach County, Florida for 35 years. We like to volunteer to help disaster survivors after hurricanes, earthquakes and other major events. In 1999 we formed a non-profit organization called The Eagles Wings Foundation which does this work around the world. We have a son and daughter are UF grads who are launching their own careers and love to whitewater raft on the Chatooga River near our cabin.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Clayton:
                                  We developed the nearby Mountain Creek Estates subdivision and saved a wonderful 10-acre lot for ourselves. It borders a rushing creek and has fabulous views. All thoughts of developing our lot went out the window when we discovered this property which was being sold by Coca Cola heiress Frances (Tut) Woodruff - known locally as 'Mrs. Tut.' As a part-time realtor, I see a lot of properties, but the views from the porch of this cabin and the tranquility of the farm cannot be beat!

                                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                                  This property high up on Tut's Mountain used to be the petting zoo of Coca Cola heiress Frances Woodruff. Remnants of the bear den, eagles' lair and other artifacts still can be seen. Neighbors graze their horses and cows in our pastures. The nearby Town of Clayton has the feel of stepping into a Norman Rockwell painting of a quieter, gentler time when people had time to chat & share recipes in shops. There is still a soda fountain in the drugstore, a drive-in movie and a general store when you can buy everything from a housedress to hunting supplies.
