About Judith A. Kaye

I have been a real estate broker for over 40 years in North Palm Beach, Florida. We started to come to North Carolina for the summers and just love it here. Judy Kaye

Judith A. Kaye purchased this house in 2014

Why Judith A. Kaye chose Clarks Chapel

Wait until you see the views from our property!

People are so nice and friendly here. You will love it too!! The deer and wildlife on our property is so exciting to watch. We have two twin fawns that come every morning and evening to graze and feed on our property.

What makes this house unique

We are in the mountains but only 5 miles to the center of town. There are 4 large grocery stores within the town of Franklin. We are located about 70 miles SW of Asheville. Atlanta is about l & 1/2 hours south of us. Often we go there if you want the big city stores and shopping. You must go to see the Atlanta Aquarium.

When the home and 3 acres became available we bought it. We just completed building the Carriage House the spring of 2014. Everything is Brand New!!! The people are friendly and organize lots of activities, including festivals and arts and crafts shows. There are plenty of trails for hiking. The is also, plenty of fishing, hunting, rafting, tubing,and kayaking available.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The cottage was a perfect place for our North Carolina vacation. Lovely interior & kitchen. My husband expecially liked the granite center island with very rustic hand crafted chairs and details. The skylight flooded the kitchen every morning with beautiful light!! Excellant feature for taking things out of the washer and dryer. The deck had two rocking chairs and we enjoyed sitting outside looking at the deer and the spectacular mountains.

The bathroom had a vessel sink with a lovely top. You could even see the mountains while sitting on the John!! Great shower with a nice seat for shaving my legs.

There were flat screen tvs in the bedroom and living room. There were two confortable rocking chairs in the living room that were just terrific.

We even asked the owners where they purchased them as I wanted to buy one to take home.

The owners who live next door treated us in such a way that we felt like family. They helped us plan our sightseeing and directed us to the best restaurants in the area. We visited Asheville, Gatlinburg, Highlands, Waynesville, Bryson City all within 30 to 90 minutes away.

The Smoky Mountain Park and the Blue Ridge Parkway were especially


The owners had lots of bird feeders on the property and the hummingbird were especially fun to watch. Anyone who loves nature would love this place. Lots of lovely flowers and beautiful stonework.

This Carriage House was absolutely fantastic. We can not wait to come back here!
