One of the prettiest drives in the area, passing by waterfalls, ponds, and acres upon acres of Christmas tree farms, leads to a home for sale in the Gentleman’s Farm area of Breedlove Road in High Hemlock. You almost want the drive to continue, but seeing this lovely home makes reaching the end of the journey worthwhile.
Upon entering the home, one is greeted by the fabulous great room. To the left is the heart of any home (in my not-so-humble opinion), the kitchen. Lots of cabinets, plenty of counterspace, nice appliances, and an island with a breakfast bar will make this a place to enjoy preparing meals. To the right is the dining area, with plenty of room for a table large enough to accommodate family and friends. On through into the great room, where you find a stone woodburning fireplace, as perfect for ambiance as it is for warmth, you are drawn to the view beyond the wall of windows. It will literally leave you breathless, extending beyond peaks and valleys for miles. You want to linger either here or on the massive deck beyond, but there is still a lot of this home that remains to be seen.
The master suite is also on the main level. It is a large room, with windows that take advantage of that same view. You imagine waking each morning to it, wondering what it will be, for those of us that have been here a while know that as seasons and weather transition, so shall this view. Though it will remain ever dramatic, it will change from seemingly endless miles to a feeling of floating weightless in the clouds when they sink down and envelope the home, from an epiphany of not knowing there were so many shades of green to feeling awe at the fall palette of reds, golds, oranges, and everything in between that creeps from the mountaintops to the valleys below.
The upper level consists of a guest bedroom, a bath, a bonus room (Don’t you love that term? It just resonates with possibilities.), and a very large loft that has possibilities of its own.
The lower level has a guest suite, again with those stellar views. The recreation room is replete with a generously sized wet bar, a stone gas log fireplace, and access to the lower covered deck, where you can sit back watching time pass as gracious birds defy gravity at your eye level. I have to mention something that seems so very logical to me, though it isn’t seen that often. This home has an outdoor staircase that joins the upper and lower decks…no need to go indoors to switch levels.
This spacious home has so much to offer that defies my meager understanding and use of the English language. It feels as homey as a cabin, yet as comforting and relaxing as a four star spa. Come see for yourself. It may be just the place you could call home. The Carolina Cone Team will be happy to take you on a private tour.
Until next we meet, I remain faithfully…
