Your Own Private Paradise, Home for Sale

The morning sun peeks above the trees as the sounds of nature gently waken you.  With coffee in hand you walk gingerly onto the large deck in awe of the beauty of the lake in front of you.  The kaleidoscopic shimmer of the water, the gently flowing creek that runs along your property, and the serenade of the songbirds tell you that the hustle and bustle of the city are a distant memory.  

You’ve arrived in your own private paradise. 

Pat yourself on the back as you enjoy the comfort of this recently updated home in the Burlingame Country Club near Sapphire.  Perfectly situated to maximize the views of the lake, provide easy access to all club amenities and to be easily accessible from Cashiers, Highlands, Brevard or Asheville, this home is a gem to behold.  Its open floor plan offers room for the entire family to enjoy their own private space while still being in close proximity to all the happenings.

As you step into the front foyer, your eye is drawn across the Great Room to the beauty of the lake beyond.  To your right is the bedroom wing, which includes three large bedrooms each with a private bath.  For families with young children or older adults who want to catch a nap mid-day, just slide the barn door closed for complete privacy.

The core of the house includes two large Great Rooms, each with its own wood-burning fireplace.  No fighting over rights for TV to view rival sports teams, each group can have their own cheering section without disturbing one another.  Native stone surrounds the fireplace as it reaches heavenward toward the rustic beams of the cathedral ceiling.  Walls of glass frame nature’s beauty and fill the home with warm sunshine.  Hardwood floors provide cool in the summer and warmth in the winter-casual living
at its best.

The well-appointed Kitchen allows the cook to be a part of all of the action.  The Banquette with its round table is the perfect spot for a quick bite or for a  game of cards or a puzzle.  When the whole family is ready to dine together, gather around the banquet table to build family memories.

The large two-car garage includes an exercise room to keep your fitness routine on track.  Sunny winter days are the perfect time to toss the football with the kids on the back lawn.  A large fire pit and two large picnic tables let you enjoy the comfortable mountain weather for most of the year.  Burlingame Country Club members are just a short golf cart ride from the Clubhouse and all the Club’s amenities – the pool, fitness center, golf, putting green, tennis, and bocce court.
