Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: Mary Jane and Fran, best friends for many years, purchased this home in 2007. Both intend to make Walker-in-the-Hills their permanent home sometime in the future. For now, Fran lives in Marietta, GA with her husband Dave and their son Matthew. Mary Jane lives in Titusville, FL with her husband Ron and her mother Ruth.
Why the Owner Chose Waynesville: Fran and MJ have vacationed here since the early 80's. They love it! It's quiet, peaceful, cool and beautiful.
The Unique Benefits at this House: THE PANORAMIC VIEW! The view toward Waynesville to the east is just spectacular. In the morning you will be greeted by a beautiful sunrise and in the evening the lights of Waynesville twinkle magically in the distance. Walker-in-the-Hills is a very special community of everything from small cottages to large, beautiful mountain homes. Located on the eastern slopes of Mt. Lyn Lowry, one of highest mountains in the Appalachians, this quiet and peaceful community enjoys a special ambiance loved by all who visit here.
