Property Description

When Colonel Andrew Pickens marched to this corner of South Carolina in 1776, he stated that their was no place he would rather live than Cheohee Valley, home of the Cherokee Lower Town of Tamassee and your next home. Situated just off the site of Andrew Pickens farm, 199 Laurel Forest Drive is a sprawling 102.7 acre estate with a 5,000 square foot home in the heart of Cheohee Valley. The property contains spectacular mountain views, around 30 acres of rolling open pasture and 70 acres of hardwoods and pines. The property boasts several great additional homesites, and around 4,000 feet of creek frontage along the bold Cheohee Creek that runs through the heart of the valley. The home is a spacious Tudor style, with a new metal roof, and HVAC system. The main level features a well appointed kitchen and den area with views of the mountains, a large formal dining room and formal living room with plenty of space for entertaining. The Master suite, is located on the main level and contains its own full bath and views of the mountains. The main level also boasts two additional bedrooms, another full bath, a large deck with views of the mountains and pasture, a dedicated laundry room, half bath for guests, and a 2 car attached carport that would only need a door added to make into a garage. Heading to the terrace level, you'll find a massive family room with fireplace and access onto the lower level patio. There is also a full bedroom, full bath with walk in shower, office area, and media room that would be perfect for an in-home theater or lower level kitchen. The lower level would also be perfect for someone looking for a mother in law suite with plenty of room, or perhaps a place to share with another family. Heading now to the upper level of the house, you'll find 2 large bonus rooms, that could easily be made into a 5th and 6th bedroom. Surrounding the house, you'll find a flat yard with plenty of space for activities and with views unlike any you'll find in this section of South Carolina. Property may be subdivided if buyer so desires. Cheohee Valley has been a part of South Carolina history since the founding of this country, now is your chance to make your own. Property is unrestricted.
