House Crush N°40—Grayrocks

how to buy a mountain house

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.

    I love this charming house and property! I can see lots of out door dining in the out door pavilions. Also, I see pots of flowers and a flower garden. It looks so inviting and cozy. The interior logs oh my, love, love ? Thank you for sharing!
