522 Bald Rock Drive West,
Fern Falls is an exceptional three bedroom, three and a half bathroom home. This is a very well-insulated and energy efficient home and is being sold by the original owner. Architect-designed and custom-built, it was designed to take advantage of the wet weather waterfall, 'rocked-in' creek and abundant sunshine. Located on a perfectly private 2.38 acre lot in the distinguished, gated community of Bald Rock near Cashiers. Perennials abound so there's not much to do but sit back, relax and enjoy your beautiful surroundings - inside and out. Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter, full-time or part-time residence, you will be quite content here. The home is beautifully furnished in somewhat of a 'mountain contemporary' style and a few pieces of the furniture may be available for purchase outside of the sale of the home. Your pets will love you for the hot and cold water spigots outside for washing off the mud after a hike in the woods. Access is very close by to more than 30 miles of primitive backcountry U.S. Forest Service trails for hikers, mountain bikers and equestrians otherwise known as Panthertown. There are so many upgrades (underfloor heating in all the bathrooms, reversible Casablanca fans, 4 outdoor spigots, warming drawer, Dacor hood, pocket doors, cedar shelves in closets, lots of storage, desk/office area off the kitchen, breakfast nook, two wine coolers, beautiful oak floors, whole-house surge protector, sediment filter). There's a separate workshop (plumbed and insulated) too, for the woodworker or the potter in the family. Your neighbors are close by and the social scene is as busy and energetic as you would like it to be with many parties organized at the pavilion. Ideally located in Sapphire Valley which allows for quick trips to Highlands. The Asheville airport is about a 90-minute drive from Sapphire and the Greenville, SC airport is about 2 hours away. Enjoy day trips to Cherokee, Franklin, Sylva, Brevard and Hendersonville.
