                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: The owner of this house grew up hiking in the Georgia mountains with her parents who taught her a love of nature's gifts. So she wanted to create a place where nature is center stage. As a licensed professional landscape architect and artist, she has used her skills in planning this house's location and design. She also has a home in Naples Florida which is a walk to the beach so between the two places she's really enjoying the best of life. She's very excited to offer what she has so enjoyed to others in this newly finished home.

                  Why the Owner Chose Helen:
                  I have owned this property for 25 years and grown to know and love all it's features over that time. The area is perfect. Sautee is so close to Helen and has grown to become a center of history, the arts, and culture in recent years. I feel the presence of history in the land here. The spirit and evidence of the Cherokee Indians are all around us here as well as those of the early settlers. This is a place where time does not whizz by and I feel connected to what is eternal. What more can I say than that.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
                  When I am here for a few days something unwinds in me. My senses become more aware. My eye's and ears become sensitized to the subtle beauties and music of nature. Also I begin to feel a connection to the land in a deep way that fills me with peace.
