Tranquil and picturesque long range vistas abound from this 22-acre Blue Valley estate in Highlands. Positioned at an elevation of 3,780 feet, the property features excellent privacy and incredible panoramic views of several mountain ranges, with layered ridges that turn a cool, misty blue in the distance.
Taking advantage of the beautiful surroundings, the main home offers several inviting outdoor living spaces for entertaining friends and extended family. To the front, a huge open deck makes the perfect place to savor morning coffee as the sun rises over Queen Mountain, the Satulah Mountains and the Small Fodder Stack Mountains beyond, plus several ranges in the Chattahoochee National Forest. On the terrace level, a large patio with a stone fireplace, built-in grill, putting green, horseshoe pit and shuffleboard court promises fun for all ages. The kitchen is completely remodeled and centrally located, while the newly added sunroom with wall-to-wall windows boasts a satellite kitchen with two dishwasher drawers and its own grilling porch. Three bedrooms, three baths, a living room, two dining areas, a playroom, den and two office spaces complete this 5,000+ square foot home. A whole house generator is included.
The guest cottage has one bedroom and one full bath, with an adorable kitchen, bonus room, half bath and rocking chair front porch. A large storage/equipment building sits nearby. With its own well and septic installed, the third home was purchased for additional acreage and is being sold as-is. It has gorgeous views looking over the Chattahoochee National Forest from the back of the house and Brushy Face and Little Yellow Mountains from the front.
Although only four miles from downtown Highlands, this spacious estate feels like a distant magical getaway. Sitting on top of the mountain plateau, it adjoins lush national forestlands filled with native flora, as well as deer, turkey, many species of birds and other wildlife.
