505 Riverwood Road, Ellijay, GA 30540
ON THE CARTECAY RIVER which runs strongly and swiftly along this 2.88 acre property with its custom cedar-shake and gabled contemporary cabin.
Four bedrooms, four baths, and one-and-a half levels are defined by a warm woody interior and exemplary outdoor living and natural amenities to soak up the ever-present sounds alternately of solace and exuberance rushing by only feet away – no more permits can be obtained to construct this closely to moving water.
The interior is characterized of vaulted tongue-and-groove natural wood walls and wide-planked white pine flooring with rugged overhead beams and a lofty stone fireplace in the open great room area. Through the windows the river is visible and the sweet cascading sounds immerse within through summer screens.
The kitchen follows the cues of the interior with solid wood countering and cabinetry with sit-up bar, all highlighted by black glossed appliances. A walk-in pantry and laundry are integral and a dining area is across the counter. A full bath is adjacent along with a guest bedroom.
A vaulted ceiling encloses the master suite with its walk-in closet and window seat storage. The master bath has tiled flooring and an open tiled shower with bronzed antiqued fixtures.
A spacious den, vaulted and beamed, also offers service as a fourth bedroom. Currently as an entertainment and reading room with its built-in bookshelves and daybed, the view is out past gleaming woodgrains to the River.
Upstairs offers repose in an open sitting and reading loft with an overview of the great room and out towards the River. Cupboard doors offer access into eave storage plus there’s walk-in attic area storage. Up here a bedroom has its own private en-suite bath and faces the river.
But its outside where you’ll want to spend as much time as possible and accommodations for such are generous and inviting. Decking wraps around much of the home – on the back side there’s both covered and open area just outside the kitchen all perfectly convenient for outdoor dining and entertaining. A spacious screened porch rests well with hammocks or rocking chairs and you get a full view of the river. The front decking, both covered and open, from a close span looks directly onto the river and there’s plenty of canoe storage beneath.
And the river is the reason you are here. From beautiful cascades and roiling shoals to murmering depths – strong and clean, in close proximity to the home and easily accessible. Long views downstream and up come with a grassy area right down to the water’s edge. An alcove stone and moss sitting area with firepit overlooks the river and a sitting deck overhangs it; if you fell off, you’d fall in! Canoe and float to and from the property and wet a line while you’re at it!
Flowers and ferns, laurel and leatherleaf, rapids and rhododendron, a combination of native and cultivated shrubs and landscaping highlight the property where stone and mulch walkways carry you through and make this a beautiful setting of peace and repose.
A lovingly detailed and maintained home on one of the finest river settings North Georgia has to offer. $535,900
