Rustic elegance takes center stage in this 6+ acre Sapphire Valley mountain retreat. Immediately upon entering the three-bedroom, three and one-half bath log home, you will be warmly welcomed by the exquisite details and outstanding craftsmanship displayed at each turn. From the eye-catching antler chandelier to the impressive stacked stone fireplace that warms the main living area, it is evident that every facet of this home was of diligent design. Guests will delight in gathering around the spacious island in the kitchen, which also features a new oven and gas cooktop. The primary bedroom, also located on the main level, provides the ideal place for relaxation with double glass doors that invite you onto the home's covered back deck, which can be concealed by electric shades for privacy. Follow the winding wooden staircase to the lower level, where two additional bedrooms and cozy second living space provide plenty of room for friends and family. Upstairs, the staircase will lead you to a loft overlooking the living room - perfect for an office or additional relaxation space. Cool off from the afternoon in the sunroom, which features a new built-in mini-split, or camp out by the outdoor fire pit and take in the lush surrounding forest. For added peace of mind in the mountains, this home boasts a generator, a newly installed HVAC as of 2021, a utility room with new cabinets, a water storage tank, three propane tanks, and two refrigerator-freezers. Just a short drive from the shopping and dining of Cashiers, N.C., this inviting refuge is ready to become your next summer getaway or full-time residence.
