    Property Details

    LAKE BURTON ACCESS! Nestled on a sprawling 1.14-acre mountaintop lot at 2,500 ft of elevation, this custom Harrison Design, commercial grade, 4 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom authentic log cabin home is surrounded by lush greenery and features soaring views of Lake Burton and layers of mountains as far as the eye can see. Step inside this unique yet inviting abode, where the open and airy living space---complete with high ceilings, massive high-end windows and a Montana-inspired, hand-picked stacked stone fireplace---showcases the breathtaking views. Open the sliding glass doors to the second of five total fireplaces, where you can bask in nature's beauty while admiring the astonishing commercial grade finishes of the exterior of the home: 12-inch 5,000 psi concrete foundation and site walls; structural steel beams; Western Red Cedar and Douglas Fir logs sourced in Wyoming; a 150-year Vermont slate roof and exterior slate cladding with 16 oz copper standing seams, flashing, pans, fascia, rakes, gutters, leaf guards and downspouts; 24-gauge Kynar 500 painted steel soffits; and, aluminum-clad windows and doors. Returning to the living space, the adjacent kitchen is a chef's dream waiting to come to life, with ample room for multiple islands, top-of-the-line appliances and a coffee/wine bar. The indoor dining area opens directly to an alfresco porch for double the space plus the perfect grilling porch---ideal for hosting dinner parties or cherished family gatherings. The primary suite is a peaceful retreat containing copious amounts of natural light with its clerestory glass. Adorned with the same hand-picked stacked stone as the living area, this haven features TWO fireplaces: one inside to enjoy bedside fires and the other on a private balcony for the most intimate of evenings. The ensuite bathroom can be as luxurious as your heart desires, stubbed for double vanity sinks and a substantial shower plumbed for a steam unit. Two additional bedrooms, a full bathroom, and a half-bath round out the main floor accommodations. The loft area above is adorned with authentic log cabin finishes and a full bathroom for overflow sleeping. The terrace level features 10-ft and 12-ft finished ceilings and mirrors the massive windows on the main floor for superfluous natural light. Oversized steel beam construction allows for an enormous open living space which includes a proposed wet bar area and is anchored by the fifth stacked stone fireplace and another outdoor porch. A second ensuite bedroom features a full bathroom with a large shower plumbed for a steam unit; a well-appointed kitchenette; a separate entrance; an outdoor shower; and, a private porch. An extra-long one-car garage rounds off the terrace level and includes a water purifier, tankless water heater, workshop space, and plenty of storage. Outside, the property is a nature lover's paradise, adjoined by hundreds of acres of Georgia Power land. A fully functional "tree house" is among the mature trees that encircle the 1.14 acre parcel along with turf just waiting to be transformed into a sprawling lawn, possible areas for an in-ground swimming pool, and plenty of space for gardening, outdoor recreation, or just enjoying the mountain fresh air. All of this . . . WITH LAKE ACCESS! Just head down the mountain to Goat Cliff's community-shared cabana house and dock to enjoy everything that Lake Burton has to offer! Only 5 minutes to Waterfall Club for golf and resort-style accommodations and 15 minutes to downtown Clayton, known for its top-rated restaurants and boutique shopping. Moreover, all-level hiking, fishing and fly fishing, horseback riding, and whitewater rafting are all just a short drive away! Why spend 2+ years trying to build in Rabun County when you can have a custom finished home completed to your taste in just a couple of months?! This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a one-of-a-kind home!!! (The photos with furnishings are digital renderings of a hypothetical interior.)
