Welcome to the Blount house, circa 1910. This magical property is set on 10.99 stunning acres with views of Clarke County. The grounds are expertly manicured with love and it feels like vacation the moment you see it. The gardens are blooming with heirloom trees and flowers that provide color and flowers from Spring to Fall, surrounded by beautifully maintained historic stone walls. The pool is open with a private pool house and screened cabana for picnics or just sit in the shade in the late afternoon. Pool house has a half bath, separate shower and pump room. Across the way is the changing room which is used for storage of pool games and equipment. The main house began as a small cabin with unique casement and diamond patterned windows and stone fireplaces. Now a five bedroom, four bath home with contemporary and Tudor flair, owned by the same family for almost 60 years. The home is rustic and charming with cedar shake siding on the outside and exposed wood walls on the inside. Enjoy a cozy fire in the family room on chilly evenings or relax on the front porch at sunset where you have panoramic mountain views. The massive dining room has another stone fireplace and room for a table that will host large gatherings for meals or game night. You will find a screened sleeping porch on the second floor next to a second staircase which spirals to the ground level. There is nothing else like it. Many antique details remain such as built in cabinetry and an original claw foot tub plus those incredible diamond-paned windows in the dining room. Set back on a private gravel lane, you will enjoy nature with quiet surroundings. The property is entirely fenced for deer including an automatic gate. Work from home! Internet is Wave2Net. Starlink is also available. The home is located within the Bear’s Den Rural Historic District. Owner will require closing and a post occupancy to 9/1/2023.
