This Appalachian farmhouse was built off the land in 2010 on our family’s original homestead. We invite you to share in gracious country living complimented by pastoral mountain charm. Strategically located between the charming resort town of Highlands, NC, and world-class trout fishing on the Chattooga River, you have available all the comforts of home, a multitude of activities from which to choose, serenity in which to contemplate the natural beauty of our mountainous countryside and a retreat from the work-a-day world. Your destination is situated on a hillside overlooking a valley long-favored by the Cherokee for hunting, fishing, farming and community. We invite you to enjoy cool summer evenings on our front porch against the scented backdrop of freshly mowed hay, the effortless darting of barn swallows frittering back and forth across our front pasture catching their last meal of the day, our competitive hummingbirds vying for nectar, and as darkness falls, the lilting call of the local whippoorwill. Our sunsets range from cotton candy clouds uplit by rose-colored rays, to full-on glorious crystal clear, blue sky fading into sapphire sparked with shots of gold, orange and purple. The air is different here – cleaner, clearer, woodland smells carried on the breeze, with a taste of each season in the back notes. Our front porch is spacious enough to include casually elegant dining and comfortable rocking through your morning coffee or your evening cocktails while contemplating the surrounding bounty of nature. Night-time reveries are often punctuated by our friendly forest owl.
A storybook mountain home, minutes from Highlands. Enjoy spacious interiors, scenic views in this peaceful retreat. Includes enormous master bedroom suite, renovated upstairs, two heating and air systems, additional wood burning stove.
