THE HEIGHTS OF AMICALOLA MOUNTAIN – at 2400’ elevation is where you’ll find this sanctuary of seventy-three acres with a resident mountain home and magnificent views overlooking North Georgia.
You’re on top of the western ridge of Amicalola Mountain in a totally private, gated, and naturalized forest setting far from noisy speedways. Mountains surround you and a heavily forested and vibrant native canopy and understory thrive - from massive tulip poplar trees and delicate silverbells that bloom in the Spring to rugged oaks and pre-historic looking waist-high cinnamon ferns. Wildlife – every species native to North Georgia - wanders thru, perhaps never having seen a human before.
From the residence is an inspirations’ worth of views as far as the atmosphere will allow - mountains, plateaus, and plains folding into the distance of a disappearing horizon. On the clearest of days Stone Mountain is visible some 50+ miles away to the south and below sprawls an expanse of North Georgia, every southern window offers a view. At night distant lights sprinkle across the void like stars and galaxies.
Inside the residence of three bedrooms and two baths a warm interior of softly gleaming white pine plank ceiling and walls and solid oak plank flooring welcomes you into the open floor plan of some 1900’+/-. Granite countertops and oak cabinets with antiqued glass doors lend a touch of elegance to the kitchen. There’s a breakfast nook, a dining area, and the great room vaults up some sixteen feet. The master en-suite occupies the far side of the home and you can see the expansive views from your pillows. Two additional bedrooms and second bath also reside on this main level.
Beneath you is a full unfinished daylight basement with a flat and usable terrace immediately in front and a two-car garage back on the main level brings you in out of the elements. The home was sturdily constructed with durability and simplicity of maintenance in mind, on poured concrete foundations and clad in weather resistant "Hardy Plank" siding and a tin roof.
The terrain here varies from rolling and rounded hilltops to mountainous slopes and secretive deep coves. Springs emerge from hollows and form little branches that flow through, a trickle at first then quickly gathering strength to tumble along with a dash of sound and vigor. The elevation at 2400’+ and the bluff-line on the southern side of the property allow the unparalleled views of Georgia to the south.
Groomed gravel roadways of nearly three miles provide good access and are amenable to the typical family vehicle yet the "remote" location is relative - you're only about an hour or so from Atlanta and much less than that from urban amenities.
This is an excellent location from which to explore North Georgia where activities and attractions abound. From wineries and quaint mountain towns to major shopping and dining to hiking the AT, from fishing wild trout streams to enjoying local events, there’s much to do and see. Not to mention roaming across your own private seventy-three acre preserve. Or just choose to stay here in isolation - free from the stresses of the outside world.
The property has given much joy to its current owners and is looking for the next steward to continue the journey. From a tranquil primary residence or a family retreat, a hunting lodge or hosting events, maybe a mountain home meeting place or for the sheer specialness - this is an example of a property that rarely makes itself available for acquisition.
