A Straight Flush of Beauties in This Hand – No Matter What Card You Play, You’ll Wind Up a Winner!

Premier Brokerage Firm, Silver Creek Real Estate Group in Cashiers is pleased to unveil not one – but FIVE amazing properties in the Sapphire Valley community of Golf Club Estates and Back Nine Lane, each offering spectacular views of the golf course at the Country Club of Sapphire Valley.  Well known throughout the area as one of the most scenic and challenging courses on the mountain, the 18-hole course was originally designed by George Cobb and recently updated by Bill Bergin. Perhaps the biggest challenge golfers will face could be found in keeping one’s eye on the ball, thanks to majestic mountain views from every hole.  As a homeowner of any one of the properties listed below, you will be afforded those same splendid vistas with the added benefit of a front row seat to witness the beauty of the course itself throughout the changing seasons.

As if he felt the need to complement the beauty of the view, the builder of this amazing 4 BD/4.5 BA home in Sapphire’s Golf Club Estates pulled out all the stops when laying out the interior. Wearing the title of “Dream Home in the Mountains” with ease, this home showcases soaring ceilings, a stunning floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace in the two-story Great Room, walls of windows, and hardwood floors throughout. The Gourmet Kitchen is spectacular, appearing as though it has been ripped from the pages of a home décor magazine with its openness, exposed beams, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and windows that virtually serve as works of art. Every bit as practical as it is beautiful, the home also features a master of main, spacious guest rooms, and plenty of living spaces – making it ideal for inviting friends and family to spend countless memorable weekends. The most charming element may be found in the bridge that runs from the main home over a meandering brook to the garage and guest apartment. For a unique twist, the home is constructed in a U-shape – giving the impression that the home is welcoming each guest with open arms. A Real Must-See!

Boasting spectacular panoramas of the golf course and mountains beyond, in addition to highly sought-after Horsepasture River frontage – this 3 BD/4 BA home in Golf Club Estates has got it all. A great deal of emphasis has been placed on the landscaping with special features such as the firepit on the shoreline of the river and a golf cart to the golf course. The exterior of the home is also enhanced by the natural beauty and charm of the Chimneytop Creek meandering through the backyard and an abundance of Carolina hardwoods providing a terrific sense of privacy. The interior certainly doesn’t disappoint and is well-suited for the couple who loves to entertain with its spacious Great Room, handsome billiard room, and simply stunning wine cellar. Additional special touches include an elevator, more than ample amounts of storage space, central vacuum, security system, and a finished lower level providing additional guest quarters with a full bath.

Not unlike buried treasure, this 4 BD/4.5 BA classic mountain home on Back Nine Lane is brimming with a bounty of hidden gems waiting to be discovered and enjoyed by its new homeowners. Perhaps the home’s most stunning feature lies just beyond its four walls – the spectacular vistas encompass what may well be the BEST view of Chimneytop Mountain combined with the Horsepasture River, a community lake, and not one, but FOUR different fairways on the golf course at the Country Club of Sapphire Valley. Perfectly suited for the family who loves to play or couple with a penchant for entertaining guests, a heated indoor pool surrounded by a lovely tile deck and simply spectacular views will likely serve as the heart of this home. Following a recent complete remodel, the home now includes a finished terrace level featuring a second kitchen and family room with fireplace, as well as a guest bedroom with full bath, and a four season screened-in porch – offering plenty of space for family and guests to spread out and enjoy their retreat to the Blue Ridge Mountains. Two large flex spaces at this level will make perfect playrooms, storage spaces, hobby rooms, or workshops. The main level of the home boasts a light and airy interior with soaring cathedral ceilings, exposed timber beams, heart of pine flooring, rich stone accents, and skylights. A gourmet kitchen showcasing beautiful granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and a stove with stone surround is an aspiring chef’s dream. An expansive formal dining room holds the promise of many a future dinner party and holiday gathering. Roomy guest quarters and a sprawling master suite make rest and relaxation a valued part of any trip to the mountains.

This charming 2 BD/3 BA cottage in the woods of Golf Club Estates appears as though it has leapt from the pages of a fairy tale. Perfectly framed by lush trees and stunning landscaping, guests won’t be able to resist the urge to come calling. The view alone is well-worth the price as you can while away countless hours peering out over the golf course or stroll across the bridge to get lost in your thoughts while you watch the stream roll lazily past. The interior of this “cottage with the heart of an estate” boasts a lovely luxury feel. The adjoining 2.52 acre lot is also for sale (see below).
