Cashiers Showhouse Tour....part one

8.21.2016

Do you know what makes touring a show house more fun? Touring it with your bestie. We had the best time traveling the very windy mountain roads to Cashiers, NC to tour this year's show house called Burt Farm. It was such a picturesque setting and it was cool and sprinkling a bit when we arrived, but after touring the inside of the house the sun was making an appearance again. This home sits on 131 secluded acres and is for sale for a hefty price tag.

After parking a golf cart shuttled us to the house and this is one of the first things I saw.


Front of the house.

When we stepped up to the front porch we were given some history of the house and then told to start with the master bedroom on the left just inside the front door.

This room was so cozy and filled with beautiful antiques. Everything in the home was for sale, too. There was a notebook in each room with all the information and prices. This piece was just inside the door to the bedroom.

The fireplace was straight across from the entry to the room.

Beautiful antique bed with exquisite linens. I truly want a monogrammed pillow like this one.
Notice the details on the duvet.



The master bath was surprisingly large for a home built in the 1800's. Huge shower at the end of the room.

Of course the bathroom was updated with new amenities.

Modern free standing tub.

Loved the cute painting over the tub. Could have been mine for almost $6,000!

Here we are the four musketeers. The designer of the outside living area took this photo of us with my phone.

We will stop here and I have so much more to share.
The next space will be the family room which was my favorite room inside.

Here's to a fabulous week ahead!

  12. Exterior of home is too mesmerizing and alluring. Lush green garden is a bonus. Pictures are fabulous and I am sure you had a great fun while touring this home. This home is truly treat to the eyes.

  13. Clearly nobody takes a steamy bath with a $6,000 painting! But it's pretty. The bathroom probably started out with a different function and got converted to a bathroom when they installed plumbing.
    The lattice detail on the porch makes all the difference on the exterior. It adds so much charm to an otherwise typical house.

  17. 131 acres and a stunning house, what's not to like. I would have loved to look around, coming from generations of farmers I would love to go back to my roots or breed horses as my Mother did.

  20. Oh how fun! It's always fun to tour a show house. That one looks neat since it's actually old and renovated. I look forward to seeing the rest of the rooms.
