Property Description

Once-so-often opportunity to own in a magical valley neighborhood along a creek, meadows, private lake, + National Forest borders. Charming cottage-style home w/spacious front porch overlooks creek, which is known as an excellent source of trout when it's not used for play or evenings by the firepit. Built in 2020, it's ideal for Highlands-area buyers who don't have to be on the plateau and don't want a renovation project. Bright kitchen w/eat-in island, porcelain countertops, + modern appliances. Kitchen opens to a two-story living room for maximum social benefit. Neat winding staircase adds flair to room + leads to a large loft w/private bedroom + powder room. Two bedrooms + full bath on main level w/shared closet/laundry + exterior access. Vacation rentals permitted - ask for income assessment. Home is equidistant from Highlands + Franklin + easy drive from Atlanta through Franklin. The road to Highlands through the Cullasaja River valley is one of the prettiest in the country.
