About the property

Five Bedroom House on A Working Plantation In The Foothills Of The Appalachians.

The Orchard House is a 5 bedroom, 3 bath house with 3 levels. It is named the Orchard House because it sits adjacent to the remnant of an old Pecan Tree orchard and we are developing the area around the house with additional orchards and a vineyard. The house was completed in 2013 and has a wrap around porch on two sides of the main level with rocking chairs and ceiling fans, a grilling area and screen porch for out door dining or relaxation. The main floor features a full kitchen with stove, oven, refrigerator with ice maker, microwave and dishwasher a large bar for eating and a butler's pantry. There is a large living and dining area on the main level featuring a large fireplace and French doors that open onto the main porch and the screen porch. The main floor also features the John's Mountain Bedroom with attached full bath bath and French doors that open out onto the main porch overlooking the pond. The Talladega and General Cleburne bedrooms are on the upper level and share a large bath with over sized shower and double vanities. The General Cleburne Bedroom features a fireplace and opens onto the upper level porch with relaxing chairs and a large umbrella shade. The lower level features a large den area with 60 inch TV as well as the Lucky Joe Gold Mine Bedroom and the See Me No More Valley Bedroom which share a full bath. The lower level opens onto a patio outfitted with relaxing rockers and a beautiful view of the pasture and pond and Georgia's Black Jack Mountain in the distance. The house has central heat and air, a freestanding propane heater on the lower level and wifi throughout the house free of additional charges.
