This historic home was built by one of Highlands' most distinguished pioneers, its second mayor, H.M. Bascom. Around 1892, he built Chetolah, his home on a spur of Satulah Mountain which is the heart of the home at 267 Satulah Mountain Road. Using his skill as a metal worker, he was the first to actually build a wood-burning furnace for central heat, a rarity at the time. Selling for a large amount for the time in 1981, H.M. Bascom used the funds to start the Bascom-Louise Gallery which was part of the library. His legacy lives on in the current regional arts center, The Bascom. With amazing views of Whiteside Mountain and Sunset Rock within walking distance to the heart of Highlands, this seven acre parcel is a unique opportunity for the family that wants a large compound with the 4 bedroom home and guest quarters over the three car garage. The buying trend today is to be able to “walk to town.” This property offers that ability as well as access to the Satulah Mountain Trail which leads to the top of Satulah Mountain. Legacy properties like this rarely come on the market and when they are purchased, they are held for a long time. If this type of history fascinates you, don't let this opportunity slip by.
