About the property

4 bedroom, 4 bathrooms with layered mountain views

Experience beautiful sunsets and quiet conversation while taking in the panoramic, multi-layered mountain view on the covered porches of this 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath, 2 level home. Relax following a day of shopping, golf, hiking scenic woodland trails, horseback riding, fishing, or rafting in the surrounding area near Dillard, Georgia, and Highlands, North Carolina. Toast marshmallows in the wood burning fireplace while enjoying the cool evenings afforded by the 3200 feet of elevation. The serenity afforded by the “million dollar view” is incomparable.

On the main level, with level entry and two car garage, is a welcoming great room with a stacked stone fireplace, fully equipped kitchen, breakfast nook, dining area, laundry room, and three bedrooms. The great room, kitchen and dining area share the beautiful view and open onto a porch which runs the length of the house. The dining room seats 8, with additional seating in the breakfast nook, or outside on the covered porch where you can enjoy fresh vegetables from local farmers or a delicious meal you picked up in town, all while watching the sunset over the mountains. The master has an en suite bath and a reading nook and also opens onto the covered porch. Wake up to see the sunlight on the mountains opposite, and watch the morning clouds drift by as you read your favorite novel or magazine.

The lower level of the house is a media room with a large screen and state of the art projection system. A large sectional sofa provides ample and comfortable seating for viewing your favorite college rivalries or old movies. There are tables and plenty of room for board games and puzzles should the weather provide an opportunity for staying indoors. There is a kitchen with a sink and full size refrigerator, a bar, a sitting room, and a bedroom and private bath on this level, all opening onto another covered porch with mountain view. Whether on vacation with your family, a fishing weekend with the guys, or a girls’ getaway, this is the perfect setting for sharing laughter and making memories.

Take advantage of the shopping and wonderful restaurants in the picturesque towns of Highlands and Dillard. Visit nearby waterfalls and hiking trails. Fish in one of many excellent trout streams. Enjoy boating on nearby Lake Rabun or Lake Burton, both of which have boat rentals available, or feel free to bring your own. Raft and tube in the summer and snow tube in the winter. Take advantage of the pool and fitness center at Sky Valley Gold Resort. There are many ways to enjoy the outdoors within easy driving distance of Bird’s Eye View.

Lovely home with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely and the view of the mountains from the porch was amazing. Me, my husband, our two young children, and some friends went for a New Year’s Eve trip for the weekend. The house was very clean, spacious, easy to find on the maps/GPS, and provided everything we needed when it came to cooking meals and entertainment. The beds were comfortable and everyone especially loved the downstairs media area with the large projector screen for music & movies. Loved that it was on the main road and was only a few miles from tubing & ice skating. We had a small issue with the internet, but the owners were very responsive and helpful. We already talked about coming back again next year. Would definitely recommend!

Gorgeous view and comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and two other couples visited for our annual leaf peeping trip to the no. GA mountains. The leaves and the house did not disappoint. The house was very clean and had a lot of amenities. We especially loved the large screen tv on the lower floor. Another nice touch were the fresh flowers in the kitchen.. The owners were great to deal with. We would definitely recommend this home.

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed the house, easy all the way around. Easy to get to, even “maps” worked all the way here. Loved the views from the porch, we spent the day hiking then lunch in Highlands. Great having 2 king beds. Next time I will stay longer!

Fantastic/Convenient/Warm Home with amazing views.

  • 5 of 5

Extremely easy to find, quickly off the main road, extremely "homey" house with tremendous views. Fully equipped kitchen allowed for grocery shopping at the near by grocery store for a great home cooked meal. Coffee with morning views that were incredible. Would definitely stay again without hesitation. All rooms were super clean, very well furnished, and extremely comfortable. All the finest pleasures of home while on the road vacationing. Highly recommended!! Danny Charlotte NC

About Anne Hughes

Originally from Albany, Georgia, the owners now live in the Northeast Georgia Mountains. Jay is pastor of Cornelia United Methodist Church and Anne is employed by Piedmont College, in addition to being an Independent Distributor for Premier Designs Jewelry.

Anne Hughes purchased this house in 2014

Why Anne Hughes chose Sky Valley

We chose this property for many reasons, not the least of which is the magnificent view of the mountains we love. We have always enjoyed the hiking, waterfalls, restaurants and shopping in this area, but when we walk in the front door and see the view from our deck, we know we are home.

What makes this house unique

Even if the weather does not cooperate with you on your vacation, the house offers activities and room to enjoy them. We have an a gaming/billiards table, and plenty of books, games and puzzles available, as well as a large projection TV for enjoying your favorite movies or watching your favorite teams play.
