The historical Burt Farm Estate is a true legacy property, first settled by the Zachary family, one of the founding families of the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau. Leave the world behind in this idyllic setting of rolling meadows filled with wildflowers, bubbling creeks, flowing streams, sparkling ponds and an abundance of native shrubs and mature trees.
The nearly level drive meanders to the stately 1880s main residence with its generous indoor and outdoor living spaces. Overlooking lush green lawns and colorful plantings, the spacious covered porch is a relaxing spot for sunset cocktails with friends. Enjoy a competitive or social match of tennis, practice on the putting green or play a lively round of lawn croquet. The estate also features a separate house for a caretaker or guests. The back of the property gently climbs in elevation and is suitable for being subdivided or building additional homes or cottages.
Rarely does a property such as this become available for purchase. For those seeking privacy, substantial acreage and a cherished family homestead just minutes from Highlands, downtown Cashiers, and several exclusive golf and country clubs, the Burt Farm Estate is the unparalleled choice.
