MOUNTAIN MEETS VICTORIAN. This magical mountain hideaway is a one-of-a-kind opportunity! Just minutes to downtown Highlands, where one can enjoy the Highlands NC restaurants and shopping, this lovingly imagined log & stone home is tucked away on 16+ gently rolling acres surrounded by a lush forest for ultimate privacy. Entry to the property is gated with a paved road that travels around the perimeter and up to the house. The delightful farmhouse features an interior of exposed logs reclaimed from a Charlotte train depot with chink joints as well as solid stone walls. Stone and reclaimed heart pine hardwood floors, solid wood ceilings with exposed beams, an antique wood stove, and a stone fireplace all add to the early settler ambiance. The updated kitchen includes high-end stainless steel appliances and solid wood cabinets with rustic hardware. There are plenty of windows and transoms allowing tons of light and fresh air it flow throughout the house. In addition to two bedrooms on the primary living floor, the upper most story is home to an adorable children’s room with bedroom. Outdoors a large lawn has been cleared and beautifully landscaped. Just out the front door there is a large stone terrace and pavilion with stack stone seating in-the-round and plenty of room for outdoor cooking and dining. A short walk will take you to your own private pond. A large double-door barn for storage or workshop is nearby. The property has also already received approval for upgrading to a large septic system to allow for additional bedrooms. Conveniently located to both Cashiers and Highlands, this property is large enough to allow for additions to the existing home but is subdividable to allow for additional homes in the future!
