A Getaway Close to Town

June 12th, 2019

Are you looking for a getaway close to town, yet situated for privacy?  We have just the one!  This little gem could use a bit of TLC, but it is priced to make it worthwhile.  The house sits back from the road, and the native shrubs and trees provide even more privacy.  There is a detached double garage.  If you don’t have need for storage for two vehicles, use part or all of it for a workshop or storage.

The main living areas of the home have wood floors, walls, and ceilings.  The stone fireplace will keep you warm and toasty on cool mountain evenings.  Three sets of sliding doors open from the great room onto the deck, effectively providing additional gathering space. The galley style kitchen is open to the great room, so you aren’t separated from family and friends while you prepare meals.  Three bedrooms and two bathrooms provide plenty of space for family.

The grounds are a winner here as well.  There is a stream and pond.  The grassy knoll begs for a game of catch.  There is even room for a garden.  The exterior stonework is amazing, from the retaining walls to the steps and pathways.

Call the Carolina Cone Team today for a private tour.  It could be just what you are looking for!

May 9th, 2019

Looking for an all one level home with easy entry?  Look no further!  We have the one!  New to the market is a great home in the heart of Sapphire Valley that has been meticulously maintained.  Keep going, and you will see for yourself.

The easy access of a couple of steps puts you on the rocking chair front porch.  Through the front door you find yourself on warm wood floors of the great room.  The stone fireplace on your left is flanked by shelves and cabinets.  On the far wall are lots of windows and the door that give way to the covered deck with its own fireplace.  The deck has plenty of space for a sitting area as well as for outdoor dining.  The wooded view of the back yard which is next to a 106 acre protected green space provides you with the sights and sounds of nature.

Back indoors, the windows of the generous dining area open to the deck, while the other end is convenient to the kitchen.  This is a room where you can truly relish preparing meals for friends and family.  The island has a breakfast bar where they can relax and keep you company if they prefer not to take part in cooking.  Granite counters gleam.  There are plenty of cabinets for storage.

The split plan offers privacy for the master suite, which has access to the deck.  The bath features a soaking tub, tiled shower, and heated floors.

Across the way is another master suite, as well as two guest rooms and guest bath.

The detached enclosed double garage provides shelter from inclement weather.

Overall, this home would be wonderful for a full time residence or a vacation getaway.  Call the Carolina Cone Team today for a private showing.

Enchanting Country Home for Sale

April 12th, 2019


Escaping the hustle and noise of city life couldn’t be easier than acquiring this enchanting country home for sale.  Don’t misunderstand; this delightful home would work equally well as a full time residence.  It is only a short drive to the village of Cashiers.

The wrap-around porch just begs you to “sit for a spell”.  You see sister mountains in the distance.  Below you is Mill Creek, a wide stream that provides the babbling noises that breed serenity.  Close your eyes and soak it in.

Inside, the dining room and great room offer the same views through the fenestrated wall.  Mmmm…morning coffee, indoors or out, with this view has to be a joyous way to start any day.  The great room features a stone floor-to-ceiling wood burning fireplace.  Gleaming wood floors and skylights all harmonize to make this home have a feel of nature.

There are plenty of cabinets and counter space in the kitchen.  You’ll want to exercise (or develop, as the case may be) those culinary skills.

Also, on the main level is the master suite and laundry room.

Upstairs are two bedrooms that share a Jack and Jill bath.

The basement is mostly finished and subdivided.  Play room, hobby room, media room, office…take your pick.  There is a gas log fireplace, and access to the patio with steps down to Mill Creek.


With so much to offer, won’t you call the Carolina Cone Team to set an appointment for a private showing of this tranquil mountain home?


Until next time…

Great home for sale in Deer Run!

April 1st, 2019

Behind the gates of Deer Run is a great home for sale!  This house makes use of every square foot of space and has lots of extras.  Come along with me and have a look through my eyes; I promise you will want to see it with your own.

You first notice the inviting rocking chair porch that greets you from the circular drive.  I step through the front door, and there to my right is my favorite room in almost any home…the kitchen.  This one does not disappoint!  One wall has windows that look onto the front porch and beyond to the lovely low maintenance front yard.   There are beautiful granite counters, including a breakfast bar, stainless appliances, and plenty of cabinets.  The island is beneath a pot rack that is positively begging me to cook.  I can smell the gumbo and homemade bread now.

The open floor plan gives way to the great room, with its wide plank wood floors, wood ceiling, and stone fireplace.  Merely open the sliding doors to expand the living space.  The large upper deck has its own fireplace.

The main level is also home to the generous master suite, with private access to the deck.  The suite includes double sinks, granite counters, a walk-in shower, and a soaking tub.  The window over the tub is made of etched glass, and justice is only done seeing it in person.

The wood plank floors continue downstairs, where I find a family room, two bedrooms, a bath, and a workshop.  Let’s not forget the lower level deck!  Call the Carolina Cone Team if you think you might like to see for yourself.

My impression of this house after my initial tour is that it is much larger than it first appeared.  That is true; however, it is also planned to use every nook and cranny.  There is plenty of storage in every part of the home.  When I was building my first home many years ago, my grandmother said, “Remember, you may have enough cabinets and closets for storage, but you will never have too many.”  I think Grandma would like this house as much as I do.  Who knows, maybe she was cooking the gumbo and bread I smelled earlier.

Until next time…

A breakfast bar is open to the great room and gives way to a marvelous mountain view through the windows on the far wall.  Yep, I could really enjoy the culinary arts in here.

The great room features a fireplace, a ton of built-in cabinets for storage so things can be kept neat and tidy, and that panoramic view.  There is a deck off the great room so you can enjoy it from outdoors it you choose.

The fireplace is open to the master suite, which is generously sized and takes advantage of that same view.  There is a walk in shower, as well as an oversized tub, great for soaking after a long day.  This bedroom has built in cabinets just like the great room.

Just the cozy cabin for you!

January 8th, 2019

If you have a few do-it-yourself tendencies, we have just the cozy cabin for you.  Just a few minutes from dining and shopping in Cashiers, is this cabin that has wonderful long range mountain views from several rooms.  A little updating and this sweet place will shine like a new penny!

The wrap around porch invites you to take advantage of the hanging swing or the rocking chair.  Inside, the rooms all boast natural wood, giving a rustic feel to this home.  The living room has a wood stove that can heat the entire house, although there are two alternate means of heat as well.   The eat-in kitchen has plenty of windows to let in lots of natural light, allowing you to enjoy the outdoor sights while preparing meals.

There are two bedrooms, each with a private bath.  Uses for the indoor work space/hobby room are limited only by your imagination.  Frankly, I can see myself quilting away the day in here, occasionally looking out the windows.


There is an attached outdoor storage area for all your yard tools. A carport at the end of a roughed-in driveway would make a wonderful covered area for a picnic table.

This sweet place has so much potential…it just needs someone to move in and make it their own!  It would make a wonderful getaway, although you might want to be here full time as the current owner chose.  Either way, call the Carolina Cone Team to see if this little gem might be just what you are looking for!

Until next time…

December 6th, 2018

When searching for a home in our area, Highlands is a town often at the top of the wish list. Just a few short minutes from downtown Highlands there is a wonderful home for sale. Located just past Highlands Country Club, this home is convenient to all the shopping and dining pleasures that residents and guests alike have come to appreciate in this quaint, yet upscale, mountain resort.

Lovely, landscaped grounds filled with native plants and flowering shrubs surround this home. Several outdoor living spaces, one with a firepit, as well as the sounds of babbling water from the stream, entice you to enjoy all the sights and sounds nature has to offer. Flagstone pathways make it easy getting from one part of the yard to another, almost delineating the yard into individual rooms. Part of the yard is fenced making it perfect for children and pets.


The rocking chair porch invites you to come inside. The living room centerpiece is the stacked stone fireplace, and at first glance conjures images of cool mountain evenings that call for relaxing in front of a crackling fire.

Further on is the kitchen and dining area. There is a pantry/storage closet and plenty of cabinets. The well designed kitchen is perfect for preparing meals. As you do so, you can enjoy the view of the fenced back yard from the window or the glass doors that lead onto the rear patio.

The split floor plan offers privacy for the master suite. Two guest rooms share a bath.

All through this house, warm wood finishes give one a feeling of “welcome home”. Could this be the perfect full time home or mountain getaway for you? Find out by contacting the Carolina Cone Team for a private tour today.
