Fifteen minutes east of Cashiers, and 55 minutes southeast of Asheville, N.C. is Mountain Laurel Cottage; a wonderful two bedroom, two bathroom home, that boasts a spectacular, long distance, southwest view of Chimney Top and Whiteside Mountains.
Designed by Al Platt (yes, the same one who designed the nationally recognized 2006 HGTV Dream Home), Mountain Laurel Cottage not only takes advantage of the impressive view from this five acre estate, but also offers a superb natural mountain experience. Enjoy a cool mountain breeze, or the warmth of a crackling fire, on the comfortably furnished, screened, living room/porch, which is the common family area of the home. Screened on three sides, it has a high vaulted ceiling, and lets you enjoy the acres of surrounding nature. Inside the home are the bedrooms, bathrooms, den/living area and the kitchen that opens onto that screened living room/porch area. Peace, quiet, and privacy are your neighbors. From the living room/porch step outside onto an uncovered deck where there is a large gas grill ready to cook your favorite meal. This is truly designer mountain living!
