Are you ready to leave city life and own a beautiful home on the Tallulah River? This is a rare opportunity to purchase a majestic 7.15 acre retreat in the hidden valley of Tate City, surrounded by the Chattahoochee National Forest. This beautiful home has an open kitchen floor plan with original handcrafted cabinets made of rare wormy-chestnut wood. Enjoy your huge master suite on the main level. Guests would enjoy the loft as a bedroom and recreation area. The stairs leading to the loft are quarter hewn tree boughs and adorned with beautiful sassafras wood artistry. There is a half bath in the loft area for convenience. The Tallulah River borders the entire length of the property with a river-stone beach and stunning seasonal mountain views in all directions. This is where the headwaters of the Tallulah River and the Tallulah Gorge begin and it is approximately 1/4 mile to access the Appalachian Trail. Enjoy the breathtaking scenes of nature, as untouched as it was years ago during ruby, gold, quartz, and amethyst mining days. Tate City is a community where neighbors often share fresh eggs and garden veggies. On the property is a very impressive large barn with a full bathroom and a partial kitchen area. It could possibly be converted into an apartment, caretaker quarters or additional guest lodging or the ultimate Barndominium. The grounds are a park like setting with a greenhouse, large garden areas, 2 RV hookup sites, firepit areas, and plenty of room for family and pets to roam. The river has very easy gentle access for fishing. There is a 4 car carport, and a 2 car garage which could also possibly be converted into a huge master suite, art studio or recreation hall for guest. You could literally be self-sustaining in almost every way, the possibilities are endless. On your way here, you will pass through the scenic Persimmon Valley with a panorama of pastures and even a buffalo herd. While winding along the Tallulah River Road headed to the property you will see whitewater rapids, secret fishing holes and you will meet folks walking with stringers of fish to cook for dinner. You can fish for native trout all year long from your own back yard on this beautiful farm. Please drive carefully as the roads are being repaired until the first part of October. The road repair schedule can be discussed with your realtor. You must be pre-qualified and must have an appointment to view this property.
