Skyla is offered to the market for the very first time and it is the quintessential old Highlands charmer. As a former holiday home, this residence is bursting with stories of elegant cocktail parties, visits from prominent executives and politicians and endless summers of quality family time. Skyla was built in 1946 on the historic Big Bearpen Mountain surrounded by woodlands and walking trails offering peace, and privacy. The layout has been updated since it was originally built and now offers five bedrooms, three bathrooms. Air-conditioning has been added, the bathrooms have been updated and walls removed to improve the flow from one space to the next. The former porch is now a much-used dining room/den with a cozy gas stone floor to ceiling fireplace. The French doors open out to a covered back porch where you will love to enjoy an alfresco repast, and a cocktail or two. Some of the features are the Knotty Pine walls and ceilings, the two masonry stone floor to ceiling fireplaces and it is believed to have hardwood floors underneath the carpet, except the Kitchen area, and a slate floor in the den. Improvements throughout the home include beautiful landscaping, ceiling fans throughout, new windows, a storage shed, and a resurfaced driveway. Skyla was originally used from June to Labor Day, but since being updated, it is now a comfortable mountain hideaway year-round. You can enjoy a board game by the fire or take a walk through the woods down to the little waterfall affectionately known as the Fairy Dell or sit on the porch and watch the clouds float through the amazing view of Wildcat Cliffs. The current owners have enjoyed this beautiful home for 73 years and are excited to now pass it onto new owners who can create their own lifelong memories within the grounds of this historic home.
