OF STATURE EXTRAORDINARY - Hewn of sunlight, stone, timber, and waterfalls; eminent in standing among all the properties of the Southern Appalachians. Nearly four years of patient, hand-crafted construction and quality are evident in the Falling Water home - every tight seam, straight line, stone laid; every substantive component - all reflective of a pride in craftsmanship and a discriminating selection of materials. Upon entry, the Grand Hall rises up more than three levels to a ceiling of gleaming white pine planking and a massive stone fireplace follows the height all the way up. A thick-planked sea of oak flooring shimmers softly beneath. The interior expanse is almost startling - a universe of openness and the space, texture, and geometry engage the eye. All around are details unique. The natural woods inside and out - all exposed woodwork on every surface - were harvested from the owner's properties and hand-milled here on site, cut to meticulous tolerance and assembled. The kitchen in tasteful rendition is welcoming for chefs and family alike. Adjacent and looking out upon a massive stone courtyard is a breakfast corner and a covered rocking deck wraps around the home to overlook and overhear the rowdy flowing waters to the foreground. On the opposite side of the kitchen is dining space enough to accommodate our nation's President along with staff and advisors. The Master's Quarters on this main level occupies an entire side of the residence, a spacious home within a home of open-framed partitions and a private sitting area with warming fireplace. King and Queen bathrooms bookend each side. A powder room and laundry complete the ensemble of rooms on the main level. Upstairs are 3 ensuite bedrooms, softly reflective of their natural woody heritage - the Sycamore, the Poplar and the Pine. A central sitting room offers a evening's gathering in front of the fireplace. On the terrace level resides an ensuite bedroom and kitchenette. Saltillo tile finishes off the entire level. A residential entry and drive-in garage door provide additional access. Outside a huge covered porch overlooks the sights and sounds of water in a frothy hurry. Outside is an astonishing expanse of hand-laid stonework. Every stone in every wall, driveway, and walkway was carefully placed and took nearly two years of labor by master stonemasons. In today's dollars just the cost of the stone would be some $1.8 million. Next to the main residence is the "Bird's Nest" cottage, further down a toy garage and guest cottage and electrical house where a huge Caterpillar generator can run the main residence for about a month without refueling. Out at the grassland is a 5000’ carriage house, a woodshed, covered shed and gate house, all with exteriors of the native lumbers that were milled on site. Over a ¼ mile of trophy trout waters - Dick's Creek - flow through the property, alternatively reflective and placid other times rushing and tumbling boulder-strewn and pouring over granite bedrock in a cascading waterfall, seen and heard from the residence and especially from the cantilevered gazebo that overlooks the Falls. The property shares a boundary with the U.S. National Forest and the scenic appeal is to be envied by any State Park. The location is within the Dahlonega Plateau's "American Viticultural Area" and a few minutes from hometown Dahlonega, Southern Living Magazine's "Best Small Town in Georgia" and all the natural amenities, activities, vineyards, shops, and charms of the area. Metro availability is a short commute away. The property, structures, and residence would lend itself to a multiplicity of uses and can accommodate one person or dozens. Singular among all Southern Appalachian properties is this setting of unparalleled natural amenity and beauty, of prominence and potential - an inspiring synergy of the very best.
