              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: We bought this home 8 years ago and loved the quiet location. There is a stream near by for trout fishing and we built a tree fort. As they got older they wanted to be on a lake, so we built another house on Lake Toxaway where we spend our summer and fall. We still go up to the cabin for hiking and mushroom picking.

              Why the Owner Chose Lake Toxaway:
              This home has fantastic views through huge windows. Even though we are in the woods, there is lots of sun on the porches and lawn. The property is surrounded by woods and National Forest.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We fell in love with the quiet serenity of this home. The water fall trails nearby are awesome and Tony's free guided hikes every other Friday make it accessable to every one.
