This magnificent antique log home was built by Joe Webb in 1930, moved and updated with an addition by Tommy Chambers in 2006. Boasting over 5,500 square feet of indoor living space, it sits on 24 private acres surrounded by a peaceful flowing stream. With 7 wood burning fireplaces and over 1,800 square feet of outdoor decking and porches, this quintessential mountain home provides ample opportunity to enjoy the wonderful Highlands temperatures day or night.
The main floor features a cozy living room that opens onto a covered deck which is ideal for relaxing in the outdoors. The gourmet kitchen and large dining room provide even the most particular cook with everything they need to create the perfect meal.
The master suite on the main level features a handcrafted king bed and a luxurious bath with a copper tub and a steam stone shower. A den and a second bedroom with an its own bath are also on the main level. Upstairs are four well appointed bedrooms with two baths. The lower level features a family room, media area, pool table and bar. All of this opens onto an outdoor porch and leads to the backyard.
Pictures do not do this home justice. The amazing woodwork in this home is incredible. Our group consisted of ages 1-55 and everyone had a great time. The porches are an absolute joy to hang out on in the evening with a fire. We were able to explore the property and take a dip in the creek out back(cold!). The basement offers a pool table, projector, card table, bar, and ample seating. It is a great family or adult room. The house is about 10 minutes to downtown highlands. It is very private and the porch is secure so there is no worry of a little one falling! Highly recommend and hope to stay again.
A mere two hour drive from the hustle and bustle of metropolitan Atlanta, Georgia; Asheville, North Carolina; and Greenville, South Carolina is the idyllic mountain town known as Highlands, North Carolina. At a pristine elevation of over 4,000 feet, this quiet rustic mountain community is located at the southern tip of the Blue Ridge Mountains and is surrounded by national Forest. It straddles the Eastern Continental Divide and still seems to the first time visitor like just a few steps from Heaven’s door.
This picture perfect mountain oasis, so reminiscent of a Norman Rockwell painting, had its humble beginning back in 1875, when as legend has it, two Kansas developers drew intersecting lines on a map from New York to New Orleans and from Chicago to Savannah. They theorized that the point where these lines met would one day be a great trade center and the hub of commerce. Fortunately, they missed their calculations by approximately 120 miles (Atlanta Georgia) and this rich and fertile mountain village was able to develop as a health and summer resort town on the highest plateau of the Southern Appalachian Mountains in Western North Carolina. The year round population of the Highlands area is about 4,500, but the summertime temperatures draw visitors from around the southeast who come to enjoy the cool days and brisk mountain evenings.
The cultural amenities include professional theater, chamber music concerts, cabarets, art exhibits, galleries, a fine art center and other special events. A variety of educational classes and informative seminars are also available. Highlands gives you a range of choices and somehow manages to nurture your spirit at the same time.
For those who possess a more adventuresome spirit, nature is always calling and beckons you to spend time away from the harried cares of your world. Take a long walk or an invigorating hike to a nearby waterfall; go mountain biking or stroll the sidewalks of Main Street. There is championship golf, tennis, swimming, fly-fishing, boating, kayaking, canoeing, and even whitewater rafting in the rivers nearby. Spring, summer, fall and winter each of the seasons offers its own unique set of outdoor adventures that attract residents and visitors alike to revel in the magnificent splendors of the mountains.
