About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Every room has a view! This lovely property is located 2 miles from downtown Highlands on beautiful Sagee Mountain. The grounds feature a stream and waterfall, sitting areas, and flower gardens.

As owners and architects we designed and built this house. It features 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms on 2 levels. The home has 3 decks and three balconies.

The spacious living room features a wood burning fireplace, antiques, and sitting areas perfect for cocktail parties. The galley kitchen opens outdoors to a deck, and features pull-out drawers in all cabinets for easy access and great storage capabilities. The large, open dining room features a built-in buffet with additional storage and serving utensils.

The master bedroom has a large walk-in closet/dressing room, and the bathroom area has double sinks. Private bath/toilet area includes a bidet and bathtub.

A den/office located downstairs features a wood burning stove, TV area, built-in computer station, and large desk.

The second and third bedrooms are also located downstairs, with adjoining balcony and deck, respectively. The second full bathroom is accessed from the hallway that services the two bedrooms and the den.

This home has windows in every room, providing light and views throughout the day.

As a local resident, I am in town and on-call 24 hours a day, if anything is needed.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: VRBO Asks: About You: In 1989 we were living on Captiva Island, FL. My husband was an architect and I was a landscape architect. We collaborated on numerous projects and received many awards for projects such as Safety Harbor Club, Upper Captiva, Seawatch of Boca Grande, Boca Bay on Boca Grande, Palm Island, and Useppa Island Club. My husband was coined 'The Father of the Old Florida Style' of architecture in the late 70's and early 80's, as he brought back features such as palladian windows, metal roofs, and wraparound porches. He was featured in several magazines, including Southern Living. After we married, he retired and I became a housewife.

Why the Owner Chose Highlands, NC, USA:
VRBO Asks: Why This Property? We were on our way to the Blue Ridge Mountains in VA to look at property, and came through this area on the advice of friends. We never made it to VA that trip! We fell in love with the town! To me, it was reminiscent of my favorite place, Interlaken, Swizerland. We drove around and were shown many properties and homes in Highlands. On our own, we drove through this neighborhood. We loved the stone gate posts, the very private feeling of the homes, and the fact that it had a 'loop' for walking dogs, or simply for exercise and enjoyment. The property itself was the only one for sale on Sagee, and the lot was anything but easy. Later, several people said they would have bought it, but could not figure out how to build on such a challenging site! We chose to work WITH the contours, rather than trying to build retaining walls or unduly disturbing the earth, and designed the house according to the SE and SW facing slopes.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Perched at 4,000', surrounded by Forest Service land, overlooking Georgia and South Carolina. Luxury, stream and waterfall, outdoor living areas with lots of space and privacy, on private road in safe, friendly neighborhood. 2 miles from town!
