Tahlequah is arguably the finest estate in the Southern Blue Ridge Mountains. Situated along the Cherokee Foothills National Scenic Byway in the fascinating “Dark Corner” region of the mountains of northern Greenville County, the historical significance of the property is matched only by its natural beauty. The Cherokee meaning of Tahlequah, “beautiful haven of rest,” is a befitting name for this 225+/- acre retreat which consists of 10+/- acres of rolling pastures, a 2+/- acre spring fed pond, and over 2 miles of creeks and streams including 1+/- mile of the pristine Glassy Mountain Tributary that serves as an extraordinary natural water source. The bulk of the acreage consists of thirty year old natural hardwoods with some pines scattered throughout that stretch from the Scenic Highway to a maximum elevation of 1,650’ offering stunning views of the gorgeous rolling hills and mountains of Southern Appalachia.
The uniqueness of Tahlequah’s location is quite remarkable. Day trips into Greenville (30 minutes), Asheville (1 hour), & Charlotte (1 hour 40 minutes) are quite convenient and the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport is just over 20 miles away. The property also backs up to two excellent local amenities. The first is The Cliffs at Glassy, a mountain-top luxury community that boasts the 4th most scenic golf course in the nation and is one of seven Cliffs Communities in the region. The second is The Chestnut Ridge Heritage Preserve which is a 2,190 acre Wlidlife Management Area (WMA) that offers a 5.5 mile public hiking trail and hunting opportunities. Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of Tahlequah’s location is its close proximity to an international equestrian center located just a few miles away.
