It’s simple to make a grand entrance at this stunning 3 bedroom/4.5 bathroom home nestled between the popular resort town of Highlands and the quaint historic village of Cashiers in the exclusive gated community of Foxfire. What is undeniably the centerpiece of the exterior of the home, a striking covered portico boasting stone and timber accents welcomes guests – conveying the feeling of an arrival at a luxury mountain resort. As they pass through the beautiful etched glass French doors depicting a pair of graceful herons, visitors will be met with an irrefutable sense of peace and relaxation. Sporting the interior of a true mountain retreat, the foyer opens up to a Great Room that certainly earns its name with Heart Pine floors and a massive wood-burning stone fireplace that soars from the floor up into the rafters of the cathedral ceiling. While enclosed within the walls of a home, the floor plan evokes the impression of wide-open spaces and a fluid connectivity from one room to the next. Just beyond the many windows and doors lie truly inspirational views of the multiple layers of mountain ranges in the distance and exceptionally wonderful outdoor living spaces in which to enjoy them. Two stories of covered and open decks hold the promise of many pleasant conversations, cups of coffee, glasses of wine and meals shared outdoors.
On the subject of meals, food preparation can become a magnificent experience in a gourmet kitchen such as this. With a breakfast bar that frames the room, the chef will feel like the star in their own food show as they create magnificent dishes amongst the custom cabinetry, granite countertops, and top-of-the-line appliances such as the Thermador gas range, Sub Zero Refrigerator/Freezer, Bosch Dishwasher, and GE Profile Warming Drawer. The chef could shop for fresh ingredients at the Cashiers Farmers Market in the morning, and then make ready to dazzle their audience with their culinary talents later that evening.
At the end of the day, the roomy master-on-main will serve as a welcome retreat for the homeowner while the guests adjourn to one of two guest bedrooms downstairs. Also located on the lower level is a second living area – a terrific flexible space for a family room, recreation room, or home theater overlooking the lower deck and the mountains in the distance.
Perfectly perched at the top of the Foxfire development on 2.4 gently rolling acres in a quiet cul-de-sac, this home also offers a delightful detached shed – an ideal space for an aspiring master gardener or craftsman. Sporting a brand new price of just $949,000, it won’t be long before this very special property with the grand entrance makes its grand exit off the market.
