Bear Pen Cottage is a visually delightful English cottage surrounded by an equally charming English Garden with multiple entertainment areas that has been years in the making. The gently rolling, almost acre property features stone paths winding through multiple mature flowering plants, evergreen shrubs, shade trees, two waterfalls, lanterns, benches, birdhouses, potted plants and trees, storage for grilling and gardening, a garden chimney and absolutely no grass. Inside this 4 BR, 3 BA home traditional design is combined with Arts & Crafts features that are iconic to any well-appointed Western Carolina mountain retreat. Meticulous attention to detail can be found in every room with custom built-in cabinets and shelves, ash flooring, and abundant transom windows to fill tall spaces with added light. The great room boasts a classic floor to ceiling masonry fireplace. There’s also a huge open closet upstairs that can double as a children’s playroom. The eat-in kitchen opens to a cozy screened, carpeted, and covered porch with a toasty warm poplar bark sided fireplace making it an inviting entertainment area almost year round. The home’s exterior architectural features include cedar shingles combined with board and batten siding, shutter accents, a steeply pitched gambrel roof design, and privacy fencing. A large 2-car garage with ample storage along with a large paved driveway. With a few exclusions, the carefully culled designer dcor indoors and out is included in the sale price making this a truly move-in ready home. Tables, lamps, extensive artwork, rugs, accessories and everything imaginable from pots and pans to bed linens and towels are part of this complete package for buyers with discerning taste. Fiber Optic internet, public water and sewer, and an encapsulated crawl space with dehumidifier are added conveniences that savvy home buyers value when considering a mountain home. Less than a 5 minute car ride and easy walk or bike to downtown Highlands.
