Property description

A slice of heaven, only a 2 hour drive from Atlanta and 2 miles from Main Street in Highlands.

Enjoy a roaring fire (one of three fireplaces) while listening to the sounds of the rushing whitewater nearby. WAGMORE transports you far away from the 'hustle and bustle' of life where relaxing or dining on the large screened in porch is a favorite among guests.

In the summer, escape the heat to a paradise where the average temperature is 78 degrees. And with an elevation of 4,100 feet, Highlands is a choice mountain get-away which attracts the savvy & sophisticated vacationer, close to magnificent waterfalls and scenic hiking trails. WAGMORE is 2 miles to Main Street Highlands where you can eat, shop and play.

In addition to being almost 3,600 square feet, Wagmore is ideal for enjoying the Mountain experience with two Master bedrooms: one is a 'master on main' and the other is a terrace level suite with a private balcony overlooking the rushing water and its own living room with a fireplace and dining area (both suites have King beds). The third level opens to an inviting library landing and separates the two upstairs bedrooms, each with their own bath and Queen Bed, not to mention views of the water.

From the moment you walk into WAGMORE, you will feel the love and caring put into creating a special home where no detail has been forgotten. Welcoming and gracious, WAGMORE will be a favorite place to return.
