A unique, hand-crafted, mountain log cabin on a perfect lot with views stretching to the Smoky Mountains and their crest at the Tennessee line. The art that has gone into creating this unique home is evident throughout, from the authentic materials to the to the present day conveniences that blend perfectly to form an example of whats possible by combining both worlds.The home is located in Silent Meadows – a small gated community with sensible restrictions (horses welcome) and 5 acre minimum lots. Its private, but not remote, being less than two miles from Lake Glenville and the amenities. Plus, its only about 10 miles from Cashiers NC with all its activities, festivals, shopping, dining, golf, etc. The home sits on a 5.58 acre ridge top lot at a cool 4,300 feet and the view is spectacular! The authenticity of the cabin starts with the massive naturally-shaped hand-hewn logs and the soaring dry stack Tennessee fieldstone and Georgia river rock chimney and over-sized fireplace inspired by the Grove Park Inn in Asheville. 100-200 year old materials abound in the home, coming from the local area and as far away as Europe, and it has more than a dozen reclaimed materials, including the tin roof. The flooring is 12 inch, 200 year old heart pine with hand-forged square nails and the countertops are also heart-pine. All walls and ceilings are pine with barn board wainscoting and trim, and the hardware is hand forged. Baths have Carrera marble topped English antique vanities and hand-painted basins. Some of the “today” features include the iconic 4 oven Aga cooker from England (the centerpiece of the kitchen), a six foot hammered copper tub from France, along with a heated floor in the master bath. The tankless water heater and automatic water shut -off buttons are also a few. In addition,there is a large walk-in pantry and laundry room, plus lifetime smooth lpe decking. Basement area is floored and heated. Note: The loft bedroom is included in the count.
