About Clara Miles
Tsuga on the Ridge is owned by Brian and Clara Miles of Niceville, Florida. The mountain property has been in Brian’s family since 1956 when Brian’s Grandfather, the late Oscar W. Burnett of Greensboro, North Carolina bought the land to build a cabin for weekend retreats with his family. His criteria for the summer retreat was that the property be above 3000 feet elevation, with natural creek or springs to support the construction of one or more ponds and within a two hour drive from his Greensboro home. Oscar Burnett died in 1970 and Judy remarried Burke Davis, an award winning author of over 40 books, in 1982. Burke’s love of the outdoors led to an almost immediate desire to live part of the year with Judy in the mountains. Noting that the cozy 540 square foot weekend cabin at Three Ponds wasn’t big enough for extended living, Burke and Judy set about designing and building a new mountain top home. Burke wanted the design to reflect the marriage of old and new, and the home reflects that. After significant searching, Burke found and purchased three 1800’s vintage log cabins in North Carolina, had them disassembled, parts numbered and carefully reassembled and re-chinked on the mountain top as bedroom wings of the central modern living space of Tsuga on the Ridge. While in college, Brian and Clara visited Three Ponds and Tsuga on the Ridge numerous times. Judy and Burke lived at Tsuga most summers where Burke wrote several books. After Burke’s death in 2006 Judy continued to enjoy Tsuga on the Ridge with family and friends. After Judy’s death in 2011 at age 97, her son Tim cared for the property until Brian and Clara bought it in December 2013. We are committed to preserving this beautiful home and its grounds for our families and are very pleased to share it with others. We hope that you have a wonderful experience at Tsuga on the Ridge and come to love it as we do!
Why Clara Miles chose Meadows Of Dan
Tsuga on the Ridge is special for many reasons. The property has been in our family since the 1950s, and it backs up to land owned by the United States Forest Service. The main living and dining areas of the home look due North towards Roanoke and the Blue Ridge Parkway – simply stunning views. Burke’s and Judy’s vision to take two vintage log cabins and use them as the “anchors” for the house combine the best of two worlds – authentic cabin feel with modern amenities. Set on 7 secluded acres you feel like the world is a million miles away, yet just a short drive away to shopping and dining.
