A sprawling, 81-acre farm that comes with a modern house in the Blue Ridge Mountains area in northern Georgia has come to the market for $7.5 million.
Located about six miles from Lake Burton and eight miles from downtown Clayton, Georgia, the farm offers abundant spaces for living. The main house, built in 2008, offers more than 6,200 square feet of living space with five bedrooms and six bathrooms. Additionally, there is an apartment above the two-car garage and two guest log cabins, according to the listing with Elliott Davenport Jr. of Hall and Hall.
“The main residence has a mix of English and French influences, with a lot of charm and details put into it,” Mr. Davenport said. “It’s well maintained and in impeccable condition.”
He began to market the property, known as Persimmon Valley Farm, earlier this week.
The owner, a medical professional and amateur artist who was not available for comment, purchased the farm in 2004 for an undisclosed amount, according to Mr. Davenport and property records.
Standout interior details of the main house include 12-foot coffered ceilings, hardwood floors, wood-burning fireplaces and four sets of French doors that frame the mountain views and open to the covered outdoor porch, according to the listing.
One of the cabins on the property, referred to as The Cherokee Cabin, is restored from a schoolhouse originally built around 1750. A second cabin, The Hemlock Cabin, was built in 2004 and has several living spaces, a kitchen and a wraparound porch, the listing said.
There are several barns and other outbuildings on the farm, including the Yankee Barn, which was constructed from pieces from a barn in New York, originally built in 1891, according to the listing.
Also on the sprawling grounds are fishing ponds, equestrian stalls, an orchard, fenced pastures, hiking trails and a lookout tower, Mr. Davenport said.
“Persimmon Valley Farm enjoys favorable location and climate, located at an elevation of 2,100 feet in a highly sought-after area of the northeast Georgia mountains,” Mr. Davenport said.
The property is 10 minutes away from a private airpark, a 40-minute drive to renowned Highlands, North Carolina, an hour and forty-five minutes to either Atlanta or Asheville, he said.
