Beautifully decorated this house is bursting with character, charm, and show-stopping architectural features, this spectacular home is an absolute masterclass in elegant lake-front living.

Adding to the expansive living space is an incredible sunroom with huge floor-to-ceiling windows plus a screened deck. At the end of the day, retreat to the main-level master suite that has a private office area. The upper-level houses three beautifully appointed guest suites that your guests will love. This truly remarkable home is nestled within gated Chattooga Club and must be seen to be believed.
Named for the river that meanders through the golf course, Cullasaja is the Cherokee word for”sweet water”. Indeed, the setting here is straight out of a fairy tale, particularly in the Fall as densely wooded areas become a canvas of orange, red and gold.
However, it’s the golf course that brings people to Cullasaja Club, and the designer’s signature is one of the best: Arnold Palmer. Palmer’s objective was achieved in a course that is not only visually appealing and memorable, but highly playable with generous sized fairways, and difficult, but not impossible greens.
There is also a 26-acre lake, which comes into play on the 184 yard 14th hole. But the splash of golf balls isn’t the only activity on the lake. You can play 18 in the morning, then paddle out on Lake Ravenel in a canoe in the afternoon to do some fishing.
At the hub of member activity is the clubhouse, a striking 14,000 square foot facility that overlooks the ninth green. The clubhouse is home to the pro shop, dining room, grill, and men’s and ladies’ locker rooms. The adjacent swim and tennis center offers a brand new fitness facility; heated, Olympic style swimming pool; kiddy pool; and lighted tennis courts.
An active homeowner’s association provides year round manned gatehouse security plus an aggressive architectural control committee. Although, primarily a single family community, there are also Lake Villas fronting Lake Ravenel where you can fish from your deck, Fairway Cottages along the 10th hole and Overlook Villas that afford stunning views of Whiteside Mountain and the forested valley that seemingly goes on forever. Homes and villas start in the mid $500’s and top out about three million dollars
