Owen Glen, a 350-acre master-planned community located between Blairsville, GA, and Murphy, NC, has announced plans to build a new furnished model home and a built-for-sale home.
The new model home is a farm house featuring 2,280 sq. ft. with a wrap-around porch on three sides. Across the back is a screened porch with a handsome outdoor stone fireplace. The 3-bedroom, 3-bath home is located on a one-acre homesite with panoramic views of mountains and beautiful North Georgia landscape. Send me more information.
Luxury appointments and finishes will include granite countertops, wood floors, high ceilings and detailed mouldings. A spacious two-car garage will easily accommodate a work bench.
Paul Gibson Construction from Blairsville is building the home. Construction is planned to start this month. The professionally decorated and fully furnished home is planned to open for tours next spring.
America’s Home Place, the nation’s No. 1 on-your-lot custom home builder, has also announced plans to build a new home in Owen Glen. This will be the fifth home built in the private community by America’s Home Place and the second built for sale. Their first home was purchased this year by Mr. and Mrs. Paul Gellinger, who were among Owen Glen’s first permanent residents.
The new America’s Home Place residence will command excellent views from a mountain-view homesite. Current plans call for a traditional farm-house design with a wide wrap-around porch, with 2,250 heated sq. ft., 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and a 2-car garage. Send me more information.
Custom-crafted features will include a spacious great room with coffered ceiling, eat-in kitchen with granite countertops, hardwood floors, stacked-stone fireplace, spacious master suite, covered porches and deck. Construction will begin after the first of the year and should take about 90 days to complete. The home is expected to be priced about $315,000. An early buyer would have the opportunity to make personal selections and customize the home.
In addition to these new homes, Barbic stated that several Owen Glen property owners are now in the design and planning stages and will be finalizing plans to build custom homes in early spring.
Homesites with Views
Homesites at Owen Glen include golf, woodland and mountain views, range in size from .75 acre to over 5 acres and are priced from $40,000, with special bank financing available from United Community Bank.
At the heart of the community is Old Union golf course, a 7,667-yard championship length course designed and owned by renowned architect Denis Griffiths, the only American asked to design a golf course in St. Andrews, Scotland. The course, which is open to the public, offers a variety of affordable membership programs. Owen Glen’s property owners also enjoy fishing in stocked creeks, picnic and play areas, and tennis courts. Send me more information.
