Property Details

Improvements

Main House – 5,225 square feet – The centerpiece of the property is the custom-built main home overlooking the six-acre lake. The home “extends an invitation to slow down,” reflects architect Steve Kemp, and it was designed to be integrated into the property’s landscape. This four-bedroom, four-bath home started as a modest log cabin built in 2000 and was then entirely redone through a seamless expansion in 2009. There is a unique blend of unexpected details seen in contrasting hand-hewn logs with smooth marble finishes.  The logs are hand-hewn hemlock, and there is an endless amount of hand-cut stone with mortarless joints. The trellis extends off the back of the home and connects you with a very inviting outdoor area. The patios are Pennsylvania blue stone and surround a pebble tec gunite, saltwater pool built by Artistic Pools out of Atlanta. Every part of the house, inside and out, has been touched by the hands of a craftsmen.

 

Guest House – A guest house complimenting the main home sits just across the driveway.  It consists of a kitchen, living room, one bedroom, and one bath and underneath is a three car garage.

 

Pole Barn – The property includes a pole barn used for the farm’s operations and to store equipment. It includes a walk-in cooler for game.
