Try not to admire this custom farmhouse and its spacious two-story design

In the shadow of the Appalachian Mountains sits Lake Chatuge, a man-made resevoir located in the states of Georgia and North Carolina. This picturesque location is the setting for this delightful country cottage. The exterior is clad in a traditional board and batten siding that has been painted a beautiful deep red. The rich wood columns and rafters of the front porch, along with the color of the siding, create a warm and inviting ambience that greets you as you walk to the front of the home.
The color palette and style of the interior of the home continues with this inviting combination of color and wood. The kitchen is designed with rustic wood cabinetry, as well as a wood ceiling and hardwood flooring. From there you step into the dining room and lofty living room. A stone fireplace immediately draws the eye through to the back of the home. A portion of the upstairs can be seen from the first floor and allows conversation to flow from one space to another. Unique elements like sliding barnboard doors, decorative ceiling beams and a breezy back porch add the finishing touches to this attractive residence.
