Overview

About the property

The farmhouse was totally renovated in 2015 and has new bathroom with a large rain head shower. The kitchen was remodeled with new appliances as well as a new water heater and new HVAC. The farmhouse has 100 year old reclaimed beams from a tobacco barn in Virginia. Although quiet and somewhat secluded, it is only a ten minute drive to downtown Franklin with all its restaurants and antique shops. It is only a 30 minute drive to Highlands and many other small towns in the area eg. Waynesville, Asheville, Dillsboro, and Dillard and Clayton, GA.

About Alex Pringle

My wife, Susan, and I live in Florida, but we have been coming to Franklin, NC, for many years because we love the location and the people are so friendly. We have been married for 28 years. I am an ex-professional soccer player born in Edinburgh, Scotland, and Susan is a native Floridian and has worked as a paralegal her entire career.

Alex Pringle purchased this farmhouse in 2014

Why Alex Pringle chose Franklin

We purchased this property primarily because of the central location and the awesome mountain views.

Great location and setting

  • 5 of 5

Loved our three days at the farmhouse! Charmingly decorated with all the comforts you might need. Beautiful setting and peaceful views, especially from the front porch and the bedroom. Close to Franklin and short drive to outdoor activities in nearby towns, as well as towns in north Georgia. Definitely worth a visit!

....a great escape!

  • 5 of 5

What a nice time we had. The Cabin had everything we needed, peaceful and relaxing and very comfortable. It's close to everything if you are familiar with the Franklin, Highlands area. Pet friendly, and a great view sitting out on the deck area. We will definitely be back again....Bill & Brenda

Car: necessary

The farmhouse is located about 10 minutes from Main Street Franklin, 20 minutes from Clayton, GA, and about 30 minutes to Highlands. We recommend the Sunset for breakfast, Gazebo for lunch, and Root and Barrel, Café Rel and Thai Paradise for dinner in Franklin. Mulligan's is a local sports pub with good food. A day trip up Highway 64 past the lakes and waterfalls to Highlands is a must see drive. If you are looking for antiques, there are several good antique shops in Franklin, Dillard and Clayton. The nearby area has a lot of great hiking trails for you to explore. You can also enjoy zip lining and sledding in the winter in Scaly Mt.
