WHY CHOOSE "HAWTHORNE PLACE"  for your forever home, investment property, or home-away-from-home?

OK, where to start?  The southern highlands is like nowhere else in America.  Breathtaking views, friendly people and
a wide variety of activities.  Southwestern North Carolina is within the Blue Ridge Physiograpical Providence
providing one of the most biologically diverse regions in the temperate world.  The mountain elevation creates an
ecosystem and habitat for animals, plants & birds not found at lower elevations.  The roadways have been designated
as "National Scenic By-Ways and Mountain Waters Scenic By-Ways".     

There are 4 distinct seasons that provide a diverse climate.  Be awed in Spring by unique and colorful bird and
wildflower displays (1,600 species of flowering plants & 160 species of birds).  Summer offers a welcoming invitation
for hiking, boating, fishing, swimming, canoeing, whitewater rafting, gem mining, zip-lining, 4-wheeling, or enjoy a
slower pace of life with simple pleasures of the tranquil mountains with scenic rivers full of deep pools, 16 waterfalls
in the area, rushing or glassy river runs and beautiful Lake Glenville only 6 miles away .    Winter provides the
opportunity to ski down the slopes or enjoy the serenity and beauty of snow-peaked mountains and gorgeous
sunsets.  Even Mother Nature is awestruck at her handiwork in Autumn.  The clear blue sky provides the perfect
canvas for spectacular forests with rich colors of red, orange, green and gold.  The area is abundant
with 600 miles of trails to roam the quiet secluded spots to "get away from it all".

On the other hand, enjoy the best of both worlds with the city of Franklin only 9 miles away from
Hawthorne Place.   
Franklin is the county seat of Macon County at an elevation of 2,110 feet, with an airport, hospital and health care
facilities,  and a population of 4,000 people.    This is a small mountain town you'll never want to leave that offers
charming boutiques & bistros, unique festivals, performing arts, entertainment and unparalleled outdoor fun-filled
activities in the true spirit of the world-famous Southern mountain hospitality.

elevation than Franklin to view the breathtaking and awe inspiring mountain top vistas surrounding you.
