Toccoa, GA (July 31, 2013) - One of the most gratifying feelings in real estate and land development today, as we emerge from our Global “Dip”, is helping a buyer find the perfect home plan now that they no longer have to keep thier lives on hold…. Some people say it is a “gift”. Some say you have “the eye”.. I say we simply listen well and ask enough of the right questions that we can easily guide you to what you really love and want. Besides it is like shopping and who does not like shopping… OK for men it is like building and what guy does not like building something.

Think about this.. if we ask you “What did you like most about your current home or what did you like least?”.. you will tell us pretty quickly your must haves and must not haves…

Even better if we ask you to describe what you liked or disliked about your home or how it lived… we really hear what we need to watch for in a home plan for you. Then we go to work.. we review all of our floor plans we have collected through out the years from some of the best builders and architects in the market and we start pulling the plans that feel like your style and the home you want to build in Currahee.. Sometimes we see that a certain floor plan is perfect inside but the outside elevation is not quite right.. For us it is easy to fix so that you get the exact look you want and love coming home to.. Whether it is English Cottage, Nantucket, American Lodge, Mountain Refined or Rustic or Craftsman we have a huge selection of plans in Currahee that range from 2,000 square feet to over 6,000 feet. We can fit the home plan to the lot or fit the lot to the home plan. We have families doing it both ways.

Here are some interesting trends we noted from our most recent buyers moving to Currahee that we think are universal in the lake and mountain living market today. See if any of these resonate with you when you are looking into buying or building a lake or mountain home, lake retreat, golf cottage, second home estate or getaway.

  • I want my home to be as open as my Florida home was or my City home but I do not want it to be cavernous – that is too much house.
  • I do not need so many rooms – just the right size rooms
  • I do not need a formal dining room anymore – we like the lodge dining concept
  • I not only want lots of open space but architectural details throughout my home – artisan like.. make it feel like it is a one of a kind home for me
  • I not only want my master suite on the main but a guest suite that could work as an office
  • I love the idea of being able to close off the downstairs Terrace Level when we do not use it
  • I want a screen porch and a covered porch or deck plus outdoor living on the terrace
  • We want an outdoor summer kitchen with the brick or stone oven, built-in grill or smoker, bar top surface, mini fridge and weather proof TV / Stereo
  • We want a nice built in Firepit and cozy sitting area – like an outdoor den
  • We do not want a big yard or lots of yard work but we do want a small vegetable garden
  • We want large master closet and large shower but only need one tub in the home
  • We want plenty of storage
  • I want a gourmet kitchen – not big but well appointed, drawers instead of shelves for pots and pans and an open concept to the great room so it works well for entertaining.
  • I want tall ceilings – 10' or better (coffered ceiling) lots of tall windows and ceiling fans so we can enjoy the fall and spring weather with our windows open
  • I want hardwood floors and tile areas in the baths
  • My husband wants a work space
  • I want lots of great built-ins – bookcases
  • I want a dynamic front door that is welcoming with lots of glass and wood.
