About the Property

ALMOST HEAVEN offers an opportunity to visit a 'get away retreat' in the mountains with all the comfort and enjoyment of mountain living. This is the perfect place for a sorority sisters/girlfriend getaway as indicated by reports from several sorority groups in the past. All roads and the driveway leading to this premier property are paved. You will enjoy the beautiful view to the west across a valley approximately 30 miles to a blue mountain range. Spectacular sunsets are visible from the living room, bedroom, large open deck, screened-in porch or from a 'state of the art' hot tub. Professionally landscaped yards include variegated cypress, Leland cypress, willow, dogwoods, wild cherry, pine and various hardwoods. During your visit chances are you may see wildlife including deer, wild turkey, fox, rabbit, and squirrel. Black bears have been seen in the area on rare occasions. The porches and decks are fully furnished with mountain style chairs, rockers, couches, and swings that accommodate relaxed lounging and provides a great place for bird watching the many species of birds that visit. The property provides a mecca for casual or professional photography.

On the main floor this beautiful home offers a living/dining area with gas fireplace, fully functional modern kitchen, master bedroom with king size bed and full private bath.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Nancy is a retired science teacher and research biologist. Frank is a retired Army Aviator,(CW5). We live in Wetumpka, Al.

Why the Owner Chose My Mountain (Morganton, GA, USA):
We left Alabama headed to the Cherokee and Pigeon Forge area of North Carolina to find the right mountain home to purchase. A relative suggested that we drive through Northwest Georgia to look at the possible mountain options here. We visited Blue Ridge for two days and were favorably impressed with the area. After continuing our trip to N.C. and spending two days there we decided that North Georgia offered everything we were looking for in a mountain home. Spectacular views, wildlife, bird watching, white water rafting, trout fishing, good places to eat, unique shopping areas and friendly people. One of the defining factors is the location. (2 hours from Atlanta and Chattanooga, 4 hours from Montgomery, Birmingham and Nashville.)
