This tranquil mountain sanctuary sits gracefully high in the Blue Ridge mountains inside the premier golf club of Wade Hampton. The home was designed by Tim Greene and is now being offered for the first time since being built. Its serene mountain setting along with the quality materials, fine craftmanship and architectural detail of its construction make this home an exceptional find.
The main house features generous living space and gorgeous views, exuding a warm ambience created by features like seven stacked stone fireplaces and rich custom woodwork constructed of heart pine reclaimed from the Hershey Chocolate Factory in Pennsylvania. The great room and each bedroom in the main house feature impressive vaulted ceilings with architectural timber design. The expansive master suite features a private sitting room adjacent to the master bedroom, two fireplaces, a spa-like master bathroom and opens out to a private porch with soothing mountain vistas.
This mountain estate is ideal for entertaining and lodging generations of friends and family, readily accommodating guests in stylish comfort. While the upper level of the main house features two guest suites, the private guest quarters with separate entrance provide further accommodations which include a kitchenette and four guest rooms each with en suite bathrooms, comfortably accommodating two foursomes for a golf weekend.
Perfect for formal and casual entertaining, the main house provides a gourmet kitchen, formal, informal and outdoor dining areas, a wine room, a full wet bar, an outdoor kitchen with built-in barbeque, and open and covered decks with ample sitting areas and an outdoor fireplace. The host of amenities continue with a fitness studio, an elaborate wood shop, a screened-in, covered putting green, a separate building with four indoor/outdoor dog runs for use as a kennel or storage, and an adorable tree fort.
This property features striking landscaping accented with natural boulders, stone bridges, and flowing creeks. High in the Blue Ridge mountains, overlooking National Forest, with creeks meandering through the property and cascading in several places, this estate is a natural treasure. The accessibility afforded by the manicured grounds and outdoor sitting areas make it effortless to commune with nature here.
Located less than ten minutes from the Crossroads, the property offers a perfect balance of privacy and proximity. The private setting and practical comforts afforded by this home create a relaxing haven.
