About the Property

Nestled next to the national forest, this home is privately set on Panther Mountain. Enjoy the peace and quiet while sitting out on the back deck enjoying the truly stunning views. You will fall in love with the coziness, charm and privacy this home has to offer.

This updated open floor plan and mountain home with whole-home generator is the perfect weekend retreat or year round home. Hardwood flooring on the main level, beautiful tiled baths and high-end fixtures throughout.

The kitchen is adorned with stainless steel appliances, built-in cook top affording more cabinet storage, and a beautiful custom breakfast bar with granite counter tops. High vaulted ceilings with wood beams cross overhead. The kitchen flows openly with the dining area and living room with stone fireplace. Large windows and French doors open to the covered deck and the immense views of the valleys and mountains beyond.

The master suite and 2 guest rooms are also found on the main level. Set on the opposite end of the home from the guest rooms, the master has equally as stunning views of the mountains from a large glass door where you can access the open deck. The bath is a luxurious escape with custom granite-topped dual vanities, multi-head steam shower and towel warmers.

A cute family room can be found on the lower level of the home… a great place for guests to hideaway and relax. The laundry can also be found on this level and there is access to the attached garage.

With just shy of 3 acres of land and adjoining National Forest Service lands, this is a great property for exploring, hiking and wildlife watching.

Learn More About

A mere two hour drive from the hustle and bustle of metropolitan Atlanta, Georgia; Asheville, North Carolina; and Greenville, South Carolina is the idyllic mountain town known as Highlands, North Carolina. At a pristine elevation of over 4,000 feet, this quiet rustic mountain community is located at the southern tip of the Blue Ridge Mountains and is surrounded by national Forest. It straddles the Eastern Continental Divide and still seems to the first time visitor like just a few steps from Heaven’s door.

This picture perfect mountain oasis, so reminiscent of a Norman Rockwell painting, had its humble beginning back in 1875, when as legend has it, two Kansas developers drew intersecting lines on a map from New York to New Orleans and from Chicago to Savannah. They theorized that the point where these lines met would one day be a great trade center and the hub of commerce. Fortunately, they missed their calculations by approximately 120 miles (Atlanta Georgia) and this rich and fertile mountain village was able to develop as a health and summer resort town on the highest plateau of the Southern Appalachian Mountains in Western North Carolina. The year round population of the Highlands area is about 4,500, but the summertime temperatures draw visitors from around the southeast who come to enjoy the cool days and brisk mountain evenings.

Unlike most resort towns, the majority of our summer visitors are also homeowners and the town has created a community of concerned citizens and cultural organizations with many diverse activities. This community atmosphere makes for an ideal relocation to Highlands. Within the four blocks of Main Street and adjacent streets that make up the center of town, Highlands is a delightful blend of country and city cultures. Rarely is it possible for such a small town to offer the array of services found in Highlands. Medical needs are met with a full-service hospital and a staff of general practitioners and specialists.

The cultural amenities include professional theatre, chamber music concerts, cabarets, art exhibits, galleries, a fine art center and other special events. A variety of educational classes and informative seminars are also available. Highlands gives you a range of choices and somehow manages to nurture your spirit at the same time.

For those who possess a more adventuresome spirit, nature is always calling and beckons you to spend time away from the harried cares of your world. Take a long walk or an invigorating hike to a nearby waterfall; go mountain biking or stroll the sidewalks of Main Street. There is championship golf, tennis, swimming, fly-fishing, boating, kayaking, canoeing, and even whitewater rafting in the rivers nearby. Spring, summer, fall and winter each of the seasons offers its own unique set of outdoor adventures that attract residents and visitors alike to revel in the magnificent splendors of the mountains.
