Large Property For Sale | Cashiers, NC
1213 Bull Pen Road | Cashiers, NC 28717
THE NATURAL SELECTION. This unique large-acreage offering is more than just a mountain escape; it’s a vibe – a picture simply cannot do it justice! Imagine a destination that could be straight out of National Geographic to call your own, sited adjacent to thousands of acres of National Forest land in the Ellicott Rock Wilderness Area just minutes to the majestic Chattooga River, Whitewater Falls, and the famous Iron Bridge.
But you don’t have to be a nature-lover to appreciate this 23+ acre property. It’s just 10 minutes from the Farmer’s Market and has great internet connectivity!
Enter the circular driveway escorting you through a passageway of tall trees that seamlessly expand into the vast landscape before you.
Fuchsia rhododendron blossoms reflect in the gin-clear waters of the private pond as you catch a glimpse of massive Rainbow and Brown Trout living their best life. Suddenly it hits you – you feel lighter and more relaxed – your worries have disappeared with the gentle mountain breeze in the blink of an eye!
Immerse yourself in this unpolluted paradise and trek along the series of personal trails that have been meticulously maintained. You’ll find 3 tributary springs that lead into the stream flowing into the pond and tons of native vegetation.
Several homesites are available on the 23.24 +/- acres creating a rare opportunity to subdivide or build anything from a yoga retreat, summer camp, or grand mountain home. One homesite can have a second private pond, and another is already subdivided. Although there are multiple locations for future construction, the current 3-bedroom + 2-bonus room, 3-bath home (offered partially furnished) has much to offer, too!
Having been year-round stewards of the estate for over 40 years, the current owners brought new life to the original 1960s summer cabin and turned it into a natural oasis.
The home offers comforts like an oversized front porch, a kitchen with Wolf/SubZero/Miele appliances that opens out to the chimney garden with wood-burning fireplace, coffered wood-beamed ceilings, plus 2 bedrooms and 2 baths on the main level – one is the master suite on its own wing with access to a charming back porch and access to the front deck.
The main level also has an excellent keeping room with a dining area, stone fireplace, and an office/bonus room, while the upper level is a private bedroom suite.
Downstairs, the lower level of the main house features a workout room, a large mudroom with a bathroom, and a heated/cooled garage with a workshop and triple garage.
From the front porch, the catwalk leads to a studio with its own heat/AC and is plumbed for future conversions to add a kitchenette or bathroom addition. The studio’s screened front porch is where you’ll enjoy more views of the pond and gardens.
Downstairs is another double garage with a second workshop and storage for the heavy-duty mower and John Deere tractor that will make your life easier (included in the sale with an acceptable offer).
This large tract of land leads a charmed life, so don’t let its name, “Frog Hollow,” deceive you! It’s a fairy tale property that’s one of the most beautiful places on Earth – and we bet the frogs think so too!
