Situated along the Cherokee Foothills National Scenic Byway in the fascinating “Dark Corner” region of the mountains of northern Greenville County, the historical significance of the property is matched only by its natural beauty. The Cherokee meaning of Tahlequah, “beautiful haven of rest,” is a befitting name for this 225+/- acre retreat which consists of 10+/- acres of rolling pastures, a 2+/- acre spring fed pond, and over 2 miles of creeks and streams including 1+/- mile of the pristine Glassy Mountain Tributary that serves as an extraordinary natural water source. The bulk of the acreage consists of thirty year old natural hardwoods with some pines scattered throughout that stretch from the Scenic Highway to a maximum elevation of 1,650’ offering stunning views of the gorgeous rolling hills and mountains of Southern Appalachia. The uniqueness of Tahlequah’s location is quite remarkable. Day trips into Greenville (30 minutes), Asheville (1 hour), & Charlotte (1 hour 40 minutes) are quite convenient and the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport is just over 20 miles away. The property also backs up to two excellent local amenities. The first is The Cliffs at Glassy, a mountain-top luxury community that boasts the 4th most scenic golf course in the nation and is one of seven Cliffs Communities in the region. The second is The Chestnut Ridge Heritage Preserve which is a 2,190 acre Wlidlife Management Area (WMA) that offers a 5.5 mile public hiking trail and hunting opportunities. Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of Tahlequah’s location is its close proximity to an international equestrian center located just a few miles away. Property Improvements: The owner of Tahlequah had a vision when the property was purchased in 1986 and the end result is a crown jewel of Upstate South Carolina. The pastures were strategically implemented along the entire 2,860+/- feet of Scenic Highway frontage and have been completely fenced in with some areas of cross-fencing and a buffer along the road frontage as well. A splendid, custom built three stall horse barn complete with an enclosed tack room was constructed at a back corner of the pasture and is situated 600+/- feet off the road overlooking an incredibly scenic, day-lighted section of the tributary. From the double stone column gated entrance, a paved driveway meanders for one-half of a mile up the mountain climbing over 350 feet in elevation to the exquisite 5,200 square foot plantation style estate. The floor plan of the four bedroom/four bath home was meticulously designed and includes a grand entrance flanked on either side by a large dining room and living area, twelve foot ceilings with marvelous crown molding, a master suite that connects directly to an inviting outdoor pool area, and a home office that resembles a figment of imagination from a Grisham novel. Outside, the well-manicured landscaping surrounding the home vastly enhances the aesthetic quality of the estate. The splendor of the flora incorporated into the grounds creates a regal scene which perfectly complements the façade, columns
