Welcome to the mountains.
Old logs and beams, cedar shakes, stone chimneys and walls, locus log gazebos—yes, please. This house crush has always been a favorite of mine. I first lusted after this house when it was the Highlands Decorator Show House. I dragged Mr. P and my realtor out several times to view every inch of this beautiful home. Boxwood, rhodies, moss-covered rocks and lawn fill the garden—and hardwoods surround it. I was so excited to hear it was on the market and open for viewing. How often do you see a log home with and open floor plan and high ceilings! This one has it all … even a guest house. Have a look along with me and be sure to click over to view the listing at Highlands Properties.
Boxwood line the entire property.
Couldn’t you just move right in.
This dormer is the view from a guest room with built in bed.
The front entry ceiling drops for a dramatic entry.
This may be my favorite view of the living and dining room.
The living area is open with high ceilings and log walls.
Dining area is large and open—near the stone fireplace.
Love, love, love!
This antique quilt hangs in a cozy library.
This guest room is close by the library and in a separate wing of the house.
It even has its own fireplace—perfect.
The halls are full of light and charm.
By the back entry is this charming seat to rest and take off your boots.
Double sinks flank the bathroom wall.
Here is a close look at the painted floor—I love a painted floor.
The spa tub has it’s own warm, cozy room.
Log walls with chinking line the staircase.
Old beams were used all through the house and porch.
The door locks and details are charming.
I think I need this gazebo.
What a great place for an Alfresco dinner.
These stone columns lead to the most charming guest house.
Love this front porch flanked with huge boxwood.
I never met a check I didn’t love.
The stone paths lead through a moss covered garden.
Stone columns mark all of the entry ways.
The side garden is all shades of green and wood.
Maybe just one more path through the garden.
And finally, the garden gazebo dining room.
