A Mountain Getaway of Artistic Inspiration

By Linde Hyder

Tucked away in the lush Appalachian Mountains is a retreat that harkens back to another era. It is a place where vintage details combine with contemporary conveniences to create a one-of-a-kind property conducive to friendly get-togethers in a relaxed setting where memories are made. Enveloped by the Nantahala National Forest, this custom designed masterpiece is surpassed only by the beauty of its surrounding 45 acres of unspoiled land.

A reflection of artisan craftsmanship, the four-bedroom plan is appointed with solid wood cabinetry, a stone fireplace, shiplap ceilings and wall-to-wall French doors that capitalize on natural lighting and scenic mountain vistas. Complementing these modern treatments is an array of timeless treasures that include heart pine floors from the early 1800s, doors reclaimed from the early 1900s and a front door that once served as a barn carriage door in England. The resulting effect is an ambiance of welcome throughout the home’s 4,490 square feet.

Outside, a wrap-around porch provides breathtaking valley views further enhanced by a series of hiking trails, rock gardens, walking bridges and a tumbling creek that encompasses the property.

Built to accommodate multiple family members or guests, this peaceful getaway is situated in Western North Carolina’s historic town of Hayesville. Quaint shops, outdoor festivals and vineyard tours are among Hayesville’s many highlights. Outdoor enthusiasts have an array of recreational options including backpacking, fishing and water activities on nearby Lake Chatuge. Atlanta, Asheville, Greenville and Chattanooga are all within a two-hour drive, or a private grass airport is just minutes away.

According to long-time area resident Todd Turner, Hayesville offers a laid-back, unhurried lifestyle where one can unwind and recharge.
