A James Kneisley masterpiece in one of the most breathtaking and private settings you will find on the Plateau. James Kneisley has been building custom homes for over 35 years and saved his best work for last! He spent over three years creating this one of a kind mountain chalet on 4.39 private acres in Cedar Hill. The home is situated with views of its own 250 foot waterfall, in addition to an eight foot deep pond surrounded by boulders and a spillway. Impeccably landscaped, there is a level 3 trout stream, hiking trails and a gas lit outdoor fire-pit. Enjoy the changing of the seasons from the hot tub on the wraparound porch while you listen to the sounds of falling water and watch the local wildlife in this serene mountain setting just 5 minutes from Cashiers. This traditional, timber frame mountain chalet with antique, heart of pine exterior siding has 4 bedrooms and 4.5 baths. Parking for 12-15 cars with a detached garage and carport. Thoughtful attention to detail has been given for easy turn around for you and your guests as well as sizable delivery trucks. The builder used many unique reclaimed materials to create what he calls Handmade House. The siding, porch rafters, window and door trim, fascia, soffits, garage doors on all three buildings are antique heart pine. The round poles came from tobacco barns in North Carolina. The porch floors are local white oak milled from a 100 year old grove in Little Canada, North Carolina. White oak and cherry hand-hewn timbers inside are over 200 years old from old barns. The interior beams and poles were installed by European artisans with exemplary joinery craftsmanship. The house floors are white oak reclaimed from a barn. The four piece granite fireplace surround was designed by the builder and inspired by an 18th century English cottage. The fire screen and staircase wrought iron pickets were hand-made by the resident blacksmith from the John C. Campbell Folk School, Paul Garret.
