    Stunning Mountain Retreat Nestled In The Southern Blue Ridge Mountains

    This stunning 12.25+/- acre mountain retreat offers everything you'll need to get away and enjoy this gorgeous community nestled in the southern Blue Ridge Mountains. Less than 20 minutes from downtown Ellijay, Owltown Retreat is a gated community that surrounds Lovejoy Lake. You'll drive past the glistening blue waters of the lake and up Owl Mountain Road where you'll arrive at this beautiful cabin estate. Walk in the double front doors and let the 2-story great room take your breath away. Your eyes are drawn up by the towering stone fireplace and hanging grand chandelier. The warmth of the interior timber is beautifully accentuated by the luxury finishes throughout the home. Past the great room, the eat-in kitchen boasts stainless steel appliances, a propane cooktop on the massive kitchen island, a walk-in pantry, and an elevator that offers access to all three levels of the home. A separate dining room flanks the kitchen as well. Outside from the kitchen, enjoy a closer proximity to the surrounding scenery bug-free with a large screened deck area with another masterfully crafted fireplace, just one section of the huge wraparound deck offering 360-degree views of the mountains. The main floor also offers not one, but two master bedrooms. Both include walk-in closets and stone showers. One of the master bedrooms also includes a unique stand-in soaking tub and additional laundry room. Upstairs, you'll be welcomed by a small foyer. From there, balconies run along both of the great room, giving the whole home a sense of connection. A huge game room has a long bar, making it easy for game players to keep themselves from going thirsty! It also offers access to the top-level deck, offering more elite views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. An additional four bedrooms, office, two full (and luxurious) bathrooms, and half bathroom complete the upstairs. The bottom level of the house has an additional guest-suite that includes its own kitchenette, a two-car garage, and tons of additional storage (with elevator access). Though you'll probably want to stay close to the immense luxury offered by the home, this property boasts 12.25+/- wooded acres to explore. Enjoy walks through the trees, down to the lake, and post up at the community's lakeside gazebo and warm up next to the fire. Summer, spring, fall, or winter, this is the Best retreat to enjoy the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
