250 Cherokee Springs Trail Walhalla, SC 29691
Rarely, very rarely does an estate in Upstate SC come up for sale featuring what this estate has to offer. We are very pleased to market it for the seller. The property is situated in a most private setting and yet one can be almost anywhere in Oconee County, upper Anderson County and into Georgia within 30 to 45 minutes. Forty plus or minus acres with timber, pasture with fencing, bottom land, a large barn, and a bold creek right through the middle of it. There are no words to describe the home on the estate. You have to see it to believe it! It features 7400 square ft. of heated space and the owner/builder spared no expense in building it. To compliment the massive home, it is built within a natural setting decked with cedar for the exterior which is shaded with natural trees. When you enter the front foyer, it is almost unbelievable. You can't miss all the open space, the large fireplace, and the ceiling peaking at 17 ft. in the living room, dining room and kitchen. The home was built so you are able to see all the natural, year round beauty through the many glass doors. They open onto the 5000 square ft. of decking that is all the way around the back and one side of the massive home. Once you enter into the master bedroom on the main level, it's so large it makes a king sized bed look like a cot. The master bedroom bath is spacious! There is a large room for just the jetted tub; another for the commode and walk-in shower and yet another for an extra large walk-in closet. Cannot fail to mention the screened-in porch just off the back for the master bedroom. Once into the full, finished basement, one can still have all the open space looking right into the natural beauty through several double glass doors. The basement level can accommodate four bedrooms with two baths. There is just too much about this estate to describe it! A MUST SEE TO BELIEVE IT!
