Cullowhee house description

If you want to stay at a beautiful house that replaces the constant sound of your television, cell phone and wasteful time on the internet with the soothing sound of a river, chirping birds and wind rustling through the trees than this is the place for you. Get away from the daily grind and immerse yourself in nature.

The 'The River House' property is located on the Western North Carolina fly fishing trail (west fork Tuckasegee River) and sits on 12.5 acres. The property is about 10 minutes from Lake Glenville and 15 minutes from downtown Cashiers. Also close to Sylva, Highlands, Waynesville, Franklin and Asheville. This is an outstanding property offering fly-fishermen, naturalist, hiker and adventurist the ultimate experience.

This Moss Creek designed log home, 2BR/2BA home, is now complete and looks amazing. No expense was spared in creating a luxurious log cabin with marble counter tops, stainless steel appliances, antique wood floors, claw-footed bath tubs for each bathroom, 3 fireplaces and many carpentry details that can only be explained by visiting the property. This property is exceptional in every way. Some of the materials used in the construction include: antique logs, bricks, dry stacked stone, reclaimed wood & barn wood timbers.

The property also includes a 1BR/1BA guest house that overlooks the pond and the length of the river. Both houses show great attention to detail. This property is breathtaking and offers a completely relaxing experience. You can sit on the back porch and watch the river rush by, fish from the banks or wade into the river that is only a few steps away. There are also many miles of hiking trails directly adjacent to the property that follow the river or uphill toward the top of the mountain. The interior of this home was designed by CJ Brownhouse and has everything you need except the food.

The river house is located directly on the fly fishing trail along the Tuckasegee River. The fly fishing trail begins in Western North Carolina and provides a suitable habitat for trout.

Other amenities include a large pavilion with Jenn-air grill and open air fireplace. All buildings are located directly on the river and provide unprecedented views of the river.

                      Car: Necessary

                      Located in the Smokey Mountains 2 miles North of Lake Glenville, 7 miles North of Cashiers, and 60 miles west of Asheville, NC. The property sits only steps away from the Tuckasegee river. You will be amazed at how relaxing the sound of the river is while you are sitting on the porch or living room reading a book or taking a nap.

                      The house is also only 18 miles to Sylva, NC, which is home to Western Carolina University, restaurants and grocery stores. If you want more of a small town feel you can venture into Cashiers, NC, which is only 7 miles away and enjoy shopping for antiques or dining on the local cuisine.

                      The location of the house also provides close access to hiking, biking and numerous trails that lead to waterfalls and wildlife. Numerous deer and turkey live on the property and can be seen even during the day.
