Overlooking Whiteside Mountain,the rolling hills of Cashiers Valley & the mesmerizing mountains beyond,stands a timeless treasure, steeped in history & familial love. Nestled on 4.18 acres behind old-growth rhododendron & tall trees,a majestic 1938 3BR/2.5BA farmhouse echoes with generations past.Tom &Theresa Cook of Palm Beach, FL,were drawn to Highlands' mild summers & tranquil settings,thus becoming the stewards of this cherished summer residence in 1939, creating warm family memories & traditions. Grandmother Cook found her greatest delight in hearing the pitter-patter of feet filling the halls & grounds each summer. Memories woven into the fabric of the home have endured through 5 generations. In the early days,before progress reached Whiteside Mtn Rd,the ridge stood as a testament to nature's untouched beauty. Only 5 houses stood, connected by winding pathways,where residents roamed & mingled freely. The landscape was a playground of discovery, where garnets laid scattered waiting to be unearthed & carried by jarfuls to Mr. Gellen at the Gem Shop & the jeep-led tram ferrying hikers to Whiteside Mtn drove by. Over time, the main house evolved w/ the additions of the dining room, kitchen,& carport & two 2BR/1BA guest houses. The wormy chestnut paneling & detailing in the dining room were transported from Moultrie, GA,after a family friend found the wood for the Cooks. It wonderfully coordinated with the existing chestnut walls,paneling & detailing throughout the interior of the home. The farmhouse was a local showpiece, featured in House & Garden magazine w/postcards of it & its view sold locally at Doc Mitchell's drug store & Potts Grocery. Notable guests included a couple, tied to the Manhattan Project,who were seeking solace during World War II. The dining room sideboard,that remains in the home today,was a thank you gift for the engineer's worrisome visit. Today,this homestead remains a sanctuary of love & timeless connection-a testament to the human spirit.

Own a piece of Highlands history! The first time on the market. this property once was home to a 9-hole golf course as a part of The Hall House property in the 1920s. Built in 1931 with chestnut paneling on the main level. This property has been home, home occupation, B&B, and now is zoned B-4. This property has been in the same family since the town was incorporated and once took up the whole block. This is the only lot left of the original parcel and contains .92 ac+/-. The home of Margaret and Tudor Hall and their extended family lived here from 1931 until the early 1990s when The Chambers Agency moved their real estate and vacation rentals office. Tudor and Margaret had a real estate office in town and were charter members of the Highlands Board of Realtors in 1956. In the mid-1990s, the garage was renovated into a one-bedroom/one-bath apartment for Mrs. Hall, who up until that time ran a boutique B&B for her empty rooms upstairs. Those rooms became real estate offices and conference rooms and were converted in 2013 into two one-bedroom/one-bath apartments. All three are leased long-term to local workforce tenants. Both levels of the original building have wood floors and the main level is paneled with clear Chestnut as the home was built just as the Chestnut blight came through. The main level has a small kitchenette, storage, full bath and 4 rooms (The former living area is partitioned to allow for the reception area.) The attic is floored in, runs the entire length of the house and has great storage. The basement has the original locust post supports. This is a property full of memories for many local people. This house was built with nature in mind, with as few as possible trees disturbed. There is a large Oak, a Chestnut and an apple tree as well as several majestic pines planted by Isabel Chambers' grandmother,
