When the current owners decided to build a mountain home in Cashiers, North Carolina area as a retreat from their busy lives in South Florida, they found the most desirable location on the planet. It is perched on the Horsepasture River, overlooking Miller Falls in Burlingame Country Club. They were seeking a spa-like and spiritual setting with 600 feet on the river, a view of the falls surrounded by pristine forests replete with hardwoods and evergreens. As isolated as the home is, they can walk to the Burlingame Country Club with a fitness center, tennis courts, swimming pool, golf course and the clubhouse for fine dining. The home was built with appreciation of the outdoors and open style living for guests. The kitchen is open to the great room, allowing lively interaction between family and friends. Finished in 2003, the home includes 5,000 square feet of interior space and hundreds more feet of covered decks and porches. There are four bedroom suites, all with reading porches. Local craftsman and native materials are used in abundance. The beams in the twenty-foot great room are white pine; the ceiling is tongue and groove spruce. The siding on the outside is natural poplar bark and native stone drystacked. In between locust posts on the exterior decks are twigs of mountain laurel and rhododendron. The doors are alder wood, and reclaimed wormy chestnut was remilled for the flooring, the wine tasting ceiling is reclaimed wormy chestnut wood and beams, antique chestnut beadboard, and over 2,400 pieces of reclaimed heartpine comprise wine bins. The entry foyer is alder wainscoting, with reclaimed wormy chestnut beams, and all the custom cabinetry is also crafted from alder wood. A makeup table crafted by a local artisan for a guest bathroom is made of walnut. Over the guest bath Jacuzzi is a fireplace comprised of stone and local artwork of bronze trout framing a hand hewn cedar waterfall. The attention to detail is remarkable in this home.
