Vintage logs, a cedar shake roof, expansive rear covered porch looking out on your own private dock and canoe launch. The Cullasaja River is the rear boundary of this property. It is fairly calm so the conveyed canoes can immerse you in nature. This home and its environment are simply beautiful. Tom Chambers built this exceptional, mini-estate to evoke the ambiance of a hunting lodge. It is constructed of recycled logs, with oak and wormy chestnut interior surfaces, although relatively new, it appears very old. Owners have brightened the interior with additional windows, and skylights, encapsulated the basement and enclosed a basement room to provide a heated workshop and storage. Three additional, recently acquired undeveloped lots provide a buffer along the east side. Totaling about 2.76 acres, Fishtales is private, yet very close to the vibrant activities of Highlands. Catch trout off your dock, and enjoy leisurely meals on the expansive covered porch overlooking the water. (Porch photos are waiting for spring.) Two wood burning fireplaces: in the living room, and on the covered rear porch, and gas logs in the den take the nip out of the air on cool summer nights. Rustic luxury!
