Lake Burton Mountain Paradise
A sense of place, like nowhere else
This exceptional mountaintop home offers a beautiful panoramic view from a large wraparound deck, covered porch and from every room in the house. At the end of a your accent on the gently-curved private driveway, youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re greeted with a unique setting that includes the main house and a separate treehouse apartment atop a large double garage. Both structures are surrounded by a national forest of hundreds year-old trees, with a breathtaking view for as far as the eye can see. Living here is special, with easy access to the outside world, while communing with nature in a magical setting that creates a sense of place like no other, anywhere.
The Main House
The main house was built for maximum enjoyment of the mountain views and unusual setting, providing relaxed, comfortable living for family and friends. Each of the three bedrooms has its own private bath, including the master suite on the main level with deck access and an oversize, Jacuzzi tub and shower in the master bath. The open kitchen with silestone countertops adjoins a dining area with mountain views and easy access to the large deck outside. The focal point of a large family room is a two-story oversized stone fireplace.
A stoneÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s throw away, the Treehouse sits atop a large 2-car garage with extra room for tools, recreation equipment and a workshop. Outside the garage, a private stairway at the rear provides access to a unique living quarters that offers the ultimate in privacy, with its own bath and kitchenette, and the same breathtaking views as the main house. A small deck on the rear of the treehouse provides yet another Ã¢â‚¬Ëœmagical forestÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ setting among nature and a dense forest of large oaks, hickory and wild dogwoods.
Together, the two structures complement each other and share the same style, providing comfort, privacy and the serene setting of a modern home in the mountains.
The Chinkapin Community
Chinkapin at Lake Burton is a private, protected community that adjoins Waterfall Country Club on U.S. Highway 76 West, less than a mile from Lake Burton. The community consists of large lots, from 1 Ã‚Â½ to 5 acres in size. The home sits on 1 Ã‚Â¾ acres near the top of Burton Mountain, with an elevation of nearly 3,000Ã¢â‚¬â„¢. The community includes paved roads, underground utilities and its own water system.
The mountain views and unspoiled, natural setting define Chinkapin and youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll seldom see another house from your own. What you will see are breathtaking views of Lake Burton and some of the highest mountains in the eastern United States. Standing Indian mountain in the distance (actually in North Carolina) is part of a range of mountains with elevations of over 5,000Ã¢â‚¬â„¢. Rabun Bald, to the East, is the second highest peak in Georgia and stands at an elevation of nearly 4,000Ã¢â‚¬â„¢. The Appalachian Trail runs along the ridge of the highest peaks in the distance, turning north at Standing Indian, on its way to Maine. In all directions you see the Standing Indian Wilderness, a protected area within U. S. National Forest Service land that will provide the same, pristine views for perpetuity.
Truly a unique setting, Chinkapin provides the ultimate mountain experience, with easy, convenient access to Atlanta GA, Greenville SC and numerous amenities and recreation opportunities throughout the immediate area.
