About the property

Experience The Best Of The Georgia Mountains With Views Stretching To 3 States!

Custom designed by a playwright/musician, this French country-style retreat located atop the mountains of Sky Valley, Georgia is the perfect destination for a romantic honeymoon, family gathering, or writer's getaway. It can accommodate up to eight.

Main Level:

Open floor plan offers fully equipped kitchen, dining and living room with grand piano and large screen TV. Master bedroom has a glorious view and is an en suite with Jacuzzi tub. A "walkabout" wrap-around deck is perfect for al fresco dining, star gazing, sun bathing, or just reading a great book. Library offers views, conversation, and an eclectic selection of books. Two story foyer, while not usually featured, will lend a guitar enthusiast fabulous acoustics and there's plenty of room for more members of the band. Note: although there is a double sided fireplace on the main level, it is restricted to candle's-only for the remainder of the season.

Upper Level:

Upstairs has two bedrooms: one with a double bed, the second with two twin beds. There is a full bath.

Lower Level:

A pool table room, TV/Game room, children's play room with ability to sleep 2 to 4 on trundle beds, a full bath, and delightful porch comprise the lower level for activities in the evening or on rainy days.

This charming house is full of light and air. On a clear night it is possible to converse in the living room by moonlight or, even, starlight. During the days, take advantage of one of Georgia's premier golf courses or one of the numerous other outdoor adventures, antique extravaganzas, or Zagat rated dining experiences in nearby Highlands or Clayton. With Asheville only an hour away, a day trip to the famous Biltmore Estate or to the music city itself is always an option. Come take a look around!

A magnificent view and a wonderful home to gather with family or friends.

  • 4 of 5

Great location in Sky Valley Resort and accessible to enjoy all that mountain life offers. Lovely wraparound deck. The kitchen was well equipped and major appliances in good condition. House was “dated” and beds very uncomfortable.

Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

Lookaround was perfect for our family, with a rec room downstairs for the kids to escape. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need. View was really really nice but we didn't have much time at the house to relax and enjoy it. Busy with wedding functions but enjoyed all the time we had at the house. Mike, the owner, was extremely responsive to any questions and very easy to communicate with.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We felt right at home when we walked in! Very open and airy. The kitchen is well equipped and spacious. The rooms were set up perfect for us. The view was amazing and the deck is awesome! Since we are from Florida, the drive up the mountain was a little scary for us but we did not arrive until after dark and it was foggy! But once we saw the road in the daytime it was great after that! Mike was great to work with! Francisco, the caretaker, was there when we needed him! No problems at all!! We had a Happy New Year at Look Around!! Thank you!
