Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: We are a busy family of six from Dunwoody, GA. My oldest is attending Georgia College and State University. I also have a high school boy and twin girls in middle school. We have all loved coming to Sapphire Valley for years to visit grandparents, to play golf and to hike.
In fall 2010, we were blessed to purchase this brand new town home and we have begun to make our own traditions in the mountains. I have a personal mission to visit every waterfall and hiking trail in the area! (Rainbow Falls and Turtleback Falls, which are downstream on the Horsepasture River, are my favorites.) I have also become passionate about traditional Appalachian music and have begun playing the dulcimer, which I learned at a camp at nearby Western Carolina University.
We come up to our mountain retreat as often as possible, but the kids' schedules often make it difficult to come as much as we like, so we have decided to also rent our vacation home. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
Why the Owner Chose Sapphire: This property is unique in its combination of location, spaciousness and newness.
The location is fabulous. It is both secluded in the woods and also only a short, flat walk to the Sapphire Valley Resort. It is convenient to shopping, restaurants, grocery, and outdoor activities.
The three-story design is spacious. The den and dining area are great for family games, but you can also retreat to the front porch or the back porch for quiet conversation while the kids play in the third floor bonus room. The three main bedrooms on the second floor each have their own adjoining bathroom. The top floor is a large bonus/bed room with a table for Monopoly, an extra sofa and bunk beds.
Finally, the town home is pretty and new, with granite kitchen counter tops, a beautiful stacked stone gas fireplace, Jacuzzi tub, and tiled showers. It is truly a mountain retreat.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome: - Great location: secluded in the woods, yet short walk to Sapphire Valley Resort activities
- Third-story bonus room
- Pretty and serene
