          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1997

          About the owner: Bill Watts was the designer and golf course architect of the Sky Valley golf course 40 years ago!!! He graduated from U of M; was a scratch player and enjoyed designing many golf courses in Fla. and two in Georgia. His 9th hole at Innsbruck Golf Course, Helen, Ga. was recently named the 6th best in the world in 'Divine Nines, Innsbruck by Arnold Palmer'. (You could Google it) Bill and Elaine Watts, his wife, have enjoyed retirement and extensive travel.

          Why the Owner Chose Sky Valley:
          This home is well maintained. Attentive single family owners have loved this retreat for years making many wonderful family memories! We hope you will experience the same joy and peace that we find at this mountain retreat. Our elevation is 3,300' with evenings in the 60's and summer days in high 70's and low 80's!! A nice retreat from the hot summers elsewhere! We're actually on the North Carolina/Georgia border and very close to white water rafting, cool water tubing as well as grassy hill tubing, zip lining, winerys, lots of hiking trails, awesome waterfalls, slippery rock falls, antique shopping, quaint mountain shops, etc.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Access to large heated swimming pool, tennis court, Jacuzzi, hot tub, sauna and workout room included. The days you play golf, your group will be entitled to use the bar and restaurant at the Sky Valley Golf Club. You may play golf for $65 Monday-Thursday and $75 Friday to Sunday.
