                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: We currently live in the Low Country of South Carolina and found ourselves looking to escape the heat of summer. Many of our friends from Florida, North Carolina and Mississippi have homes in the Cashiers-Sapphire-Highlands area and we had visited there often. We decided we wanted to purchase there and did. It has become our home away from home. We found that we spent so much time there and enjoyed having family and friends visit that we recently purchased a larger home nearby.

                  Why the Owner Chose Sapphire:
                  This home has a great floor-plan and views. We wanted something new and finding a one level home was such a plus. We think you too will enjoy this home. Although the home sits on almost 11 acres, you are part of a neighborhood and will not feel isolated.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  As your car climbs the mountain, after each switch-back the views, weather and excitement grow as this is a place you can truly experience the mountains and all they have to offer.
