This is THE VIEW, the million dollar panorama with a fun, easy-living, three bedroom home on over ten acres. You may enjoy a dinner party on the deck with the lights of Seneca and Clemson and beyond sparkling in the distance--or a nightcap in the hot tub with, perhaps, a few fluttering snowflakes. A glass of wine in hand while thunderstorms brew in the distance, lightning flashing the horizon. Sunsets on clouds, and sometimes fog rolling in the windows. At nearly 4200-foot elevation, the property offers an unmatched view of Upstate South Carolina and beyond, enjoys cool summer temperatures (often 15 degrees lower than nearby mountain and lake communities), and provides 10+ acres of a private mountain estate. Though you feel as if you're a world away, you're just a two-or-so hour drive from Atlanta and just five miles from Main Street Highlands with the culture and cuisine that this unique mountain town offers. With fine restaurants, shops, and galleries, Highlands, for over a hundred years, has been a Southeastern haven. Ideal as a second home or, as is more and more often the case, a full-time residence, Highlands offers respite from hot and hectic lifestyles. This home features a separate guest area, a full two-car garage with storage, an open living, dining, and kitchen area which takes full advantage of the view, and a large deck for entertaining or relaxing. Recently, the home has been upgraded, offering more bright and spacious living area as well as a new master bath featuring heated floors. Improvements also include hardwoods, new lighting, tongue-and-groove ceilings, and landscaping around the front entrance. The property could be great for weekend equestrians--with untold miles of dirt roads and trails. Adjacent acreage is also available, allowing a new owner to merge approximately 60 acres if desired.
