Highlands and its sister town, Cashiers, are both known for their beautiful mountain homes. Of course, most have covered decks or porches to capture the pretty views.
The screened porch below was a big selling point for us in the small ranch home we are buying. These are photos of the porch on the day we bid on the house. Plants and a rug will be added once we move in
along with a bit of furniture rearrangement, this feels a bit tight
The demijohn bottle, set of stationary chairs and round side table are going with the sellers. But we are able to purchase the rocking chairs, sofa and dining set. I will be sure to post photos of sunny days on the porch soon, this day was quite dreary.
Here are some favorite mountain porch inspirations I have pinned...
a Cashiers porch designed by Kathleen Rivers and featured in House Beautiful. The striped rug!
this beauty was featured in House Beautiful
a Cashiers porch done by Phoebe Howard
A beautiful porch bar, done for the Cashiers Showhouse a few years ago. Checked fabrics look great in the mountains.
A log home in Highlands.... this home was actually owned by the same couple we are purchasing our home from. They had two homes in Highlands (one for family and friends) and are downsizing to a condominium.. The house was featured in Traditional Home. Read more here. This is the same set of porch furniture we are purchasing from them.
Kathleen Rivers designed this dining porch space that was featured in Garden & Gun. Fantastic view of Whiteside Mountain from this one.
A porch with black woodwork, painted wicker and awesome stone fireplace by Charleston designer Amelia Handegun.
I will be sure to regularly post some photos of our porch as we get settled. It will be the focal point of the house in the summer and fall.
Thanks for visiting!
