Perfectly situated approximately five miles South of I-85 and just minutes from Carnesville, Royston, and Lavonia, this multi-use property offers recreational hunting, gardening, and solitude by the broad, fast-flowing Unawatti Creek. As you pull down the gated, winding gravel drive you start to feel the North Georgia Mountains as you are greeted by mature, large white oaks and other native hardwoods. The drive crests a rise to reveal a beautiful open area complete with fruit trees, muscadine vines, a goat house/chicken pen, and an enclosed garden area. Nearby is a garden shed and a 25 x 35 block workshop with lean to sides for all your equipment and storage. For marksmen, a wooded area hosts a nice shooting or archery range for honing your skill. The Unawatti Creek flows directly through the middle of the property. A well-built bridge provides access to both sides of the creek as well as to the back pasture and wooded areas. While every type of wildlife that Georgia has to offer calls this property home, you will undoubtedly catch sight of deer and hear hoot owls and hawks. Originally developed as a family hideaway, two homes are perfectly situated on this hilltop to capture the views and sounds of the creek as it winds its way through the property. One of the homes is a uniquely built energy-efficient berm home that sports a metal roof. This home can be a guest house, studio, rental, or you may prefer it as the main residence. It offers 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, a study and a large open kitchen and den area. The rock fireplace wall adds the rustic mountain feel as the wall of windows out the back showcases the incredible waterfront views. A spiral staircase leads to a balcony overlooking the den area and to an elevated deck for stargazing. The newer second home is two stories on a walk-out basement that includes a half-bath and laundry. The entry level consists of the master bedroom with a well-done bath opening to the den and kitchen area, complete with a screened-in porch and wrap-around deck overlooking the creek. The second floor offers a spacious loft area, a second bedroom and bath, and an office. All rooms in these homes take in the views of this incredible property. The memories that will be made in the swimming hole and along the banks of the Unawatti Creek will be priceless! Call for a private showing.
