Whiteside Bear Shadow Reimagined Highlands, NC
236 Old Wagon Road | Highlands, NC 28717
DAYDREAMS. Picture a place where you truly realize the magic of the Blue Ridge Mountains that can be called your own. Seeing the home’s potential, these dedicated curators thoughtfully recaptured a mountain chalet’s charm of its original facade and then some. Having cultivated a new vision of the existing structure, the home was totally taken down to the studs – a complete rebirth. When finished, the 4 bedroom + 4.5 bathroom home was lovingly filled with high-end essentials, luxury details, and exquisite furniture for the new curator to cherish. That’s right, the house is offered furnished!
This secret little community, located halfway between Highlands and Cashiers, is the perfect destination to enjoy both Highlands and Cashiers equally. Boasting 3.23 +/- acres this home also comes with the parcel adjacent to it! Prepare yourself as you drive into the circular driveway to face full-on unobstructed views of Whiteside Mountain and long-range Eastern exposure of Cashiers Valley. The grand entrance allows a spacious parking area for your friends and guests as you approach the attached two-car garage leading into the lower level.
As you go through the front door, wide plank wood floors are quickly noticed throughout. Then your eyes are drawn upward to cathedral wood-paneled ceilings and impressive timber beams. There are two bedrooms on the main level, each with full ensuite bathrooms and a powder room.
Spacious and exquisite, the master suite offers copious amounts of natural light, a reading nook, and an astonishing view! The master bathroom is characterized by its gorgeous marble tile running into the glass-enclosed shower, substantial double vanity, and a large walk-in closet. The main level guest suite also has a reading nook, and the bathroom has designer ceramic printed tile and a large walk-in shower.
The open kitchen and living room are great places for guests and friends to gather. The open plan allows you to easily flow between the kitchen and living room so no one misses out on the fun. Imagine hosting Thanksgiving in the kitchen of your dreams. Loaded with luxury appliances such as a LaCornue gas stove, this home’s ideal kitchen provides excellent functionality and a plethora of cabinet storage space. Open the sliding windowed doors at the dining area to relax by the fire on the screened porch while soaking in the majestic views!
Continue to the lower level, where the den’s cozy atmosphere is highlighted by gas logs in a stone fireplace, a special space for games or puzzles, and a bar area with a beverage cooler and ice maker. This den leads to 2 ensuite guest bedrooms, each with a private bathroom and a handy mudroom.
Walk through sliding glass doors to the patio with a hanging swing and seating. Then follow the stone walkway to bask in never-ending Whiteside Mountain views and envision sharing stories under the clear blue sky.
This home is the perfect mountain getaway – the epitome of modern Southern Appalachian charm and the definition of getting away – Yes, please!
