About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)
When entering Whisper Lake, you are greeted with a long, picturesque, winding drive over the Horsepasture River and up into the mountains. Our home is located on a quiet cul-de-sac and was built with excellence in mind. It is warm and inviting--filled with luxurious amenities, comfortable places to settle, and accented with rustic, one-of-a-kind furnishings, cabinetry and unique Appalachian artwork. It has an open floor plan to assure mingling, yet many places that offer seclusion--each with scenes of nature filling the rooms.
Walnut floors, pine walls & ceilings, expansive windows, natural stone and granite bring the richness of nature in. A wood burning fireplace warms you in the living area, a gas fireplace adds romance and warmth in the master suite. Views of the mountains in both the master and guest rooms soothe you at night and help you awaken in the morning. Each room is decorated with deluxe fabrics and have extremely comforting beds. The young at heart will enjoy any of the three beds in the bunk room with tranquil forest views. And, if you can't let go, there are TVs with DVDs in each bedroom and the living room, plus internet/wireless access with a desk to support your work.
Outside, the deck runs the length of the house with access from the master, living room and guest room. It has a large portion covered, with sturdy hand-made sassafras furniture, and is a place to stare at nothing or to finish a book. Coffee, cocktails, snacks or meals are only enhanced when attached to the mountain air and the view from this deck. Whether the sun is shining, the rain is dripping, or the snow gently falling--this will be your favorite place!
There are so many places to explore, hills to walk, close access to state parks, waterfalls, the Blue Ridge Highway, Cashiers, Highlands, Asheville and more. Golf, tennis courses and riding trails are in abundance and surround Sapphire Valley. You will not be disappointed if you stay at our mountain retreat. You will go home both relaxed and refreshed!

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: We are a family of four--all hectically involved with daily life in the Atlanta area. The mountains are the best fix we've found that forces us to slow down!
Why the Owner Chose Sapphire, NC, USA:
We left the Midwest for the sunny south and from our venturing, soon fell in love with the North Carolina mountains. We decided to start from scratch rather than purchase a finished home, working with a builder who desired perfection and uniqueness as much as we did. The tranquility is all we need. The access to the Blue Ridge mountain vistas, shops, restaurants, golfing, scenic day trips, hiking, local artistry and the sweet, honest mountain personalities are all perks we've come to depend on.
