ON THE MARKET >>> Sagee Manor


Sagee Manor | Highlands, NC

I spotted in the May/June issue of Veranda magazine and in yesterday's NY Times, an advertisement announcing a very special NC mountain estate is on the market. Sagee Manor is located on a 50 acre mountain top setting in Highlands, NC. Highlands is a charming & picturesque locale that serves as a tranquil retreat for many city dwellers. The town is within a 3 hour drive of Atlanta, making it a very doable weekend getaway destination.

The property offers just about every detail needed to enjoy a comfortable stay, perfect for entertaining family and friends. The main home & guest house have been designed with a total of 7 bedrooms, 8 baths, and 5 1/2 baths; additional interior details include a wine cellar, 10 wood burning fireplaces, and top-of-the-line finishes. The exterior grounds consist of extensive lush gardening, detailed stone work, pool, & pond. I've included a handful of photos below, followed by a video with owner Bob Fisher and architect Keith Summerour talking about this truly unique residence.

Modern Pre-Fab Living

Today's NY Times Home & Garden section features an article on couple Zoe Bissell and Bryan Buryk (pictured above) and their ups (light filled space) & downs (contractor problems) of building their country home in the Catskills. Ms. Bissell had inherited some land and decided on building a pre-fab home, designed by architect Rocio Romero. The pair chose the LVL model, complete with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a wall of glass to take in the views.

Thinking about a pre-fab home of your own, but want to get a first hand experience of living in one? Well, you can....  It has been on my list to stay at the vacation rental, Luminhaus, located on 6 acres in the Blue Ridge Mountains of VA. The owners of Luminhaus selected and built Rocio Romero's LV model pre-fab design plan. The home offers 2 bedrooms and 1 bath, with all the modern conveniences needed for a comfortable stay. Check out exterior & interior images below, followed by video of architect Rocio Romero. For more info, rates, and availability for Luminhaus contact jennifer@luminhaus.com
