A CEDAR CABIN WATERFALL RETREAT - On this very private but easily accessible 41.7+/- acres outside of Dahlonega, Georgia.
Beautifully canopied with generational timber and a sunlight strewn southern-facing hollow with a boulder-frothed creek overlooked by a authentic cedar lumbered cabin. Massive granite outcroppings hang over the creek and stand testament to the underlying foundation of North Georgia. Huge beech, oak, and hemlock trees dot the property and evergreen highlights of laurel, rhododendron, and doghobble follow along the creek. A footbridge and walking trail along the creek extend out from the cabin and a little garden spot sits alongside the driveway.
Further up the property rounds off onto a gentle hilltop that offers an additional homesite. From here looking east the mountains of Wauka, Piney, and Long project above the horizon in blue silhouettes. For such an easily accessed property it's remarkable how quiet and serene the interior is, nary a sight or sound of civilization.
The rustic cabin has three bedrooms and two baths on two levels plus a full daylight basement terrace level. The walls, ceilings, and beams are solid cedar and you can still pick their resinous scent. A flagstone fireplace highlights the living space. Outside the stonework wraps around the foundation and retaining walls. A glassed sun room with southern exposure takes advantage of the cabin's location looking out and down; all the sights and sounds of the creek and property are visible from within. A workshop with a covered canopy sits just up the driveway and there's also a little storage building.
The creek is granite lined and raucous, racing along and then pausing for a moment in swirling pools before leaping off in the next downsplash. A tumbling waterfall abruptly cascades over stony ledges and slides over the Georgia granite. Some 1/4 mile of creek flows through the property and is the centerpiece of the setting.
This property has the best of a very pretty whitewater creek setting and is choice for either a permanent residence or as a second home. The location is convenient to Hwy. 400 and Dahlonega and offers total privacy with paved roadways (and driveway) all the way home. $1,037,500.
