The Log Home was originally finished in 1994 and has changed and grown over the years. The original building is a Hearthstone Log Home. Hearthstone is known for their attention to detail and focus on honoring the Timbercraft that originated with the first log homes. The company began in 1971 as a restorer of old log homes in the southern Appalachian mountains. The detail that was used
in these restorations carried forward to their new homes-with the quiet strength of character of those original log and heavy timber homes. All the logs are hewn, and dove-tailed with expansive heavy timber beams - like everything on this property, built to last.
A significant addition was completed in 2000 when Pat deconstructed his great grandparents log home that was located in Big Ugly Creek, West Virginia and originally built back in 1860. With the beams of that home he created the formal dining room to bring his history here to Rowan County. At the same time, an oversized two car garage with storage space was added to improve the livability of the main house.
The inside of this home is only a portion of what makes it wonderful. There is a massive 8 foot deep wrap around porch inviting you to sit and watch the weather (and the rainbows) over the pond. The view from the house is spectacular as it rolls out in front of you. but even as it is, the master is graciously sized.
There are two private bedrooms and a loft upstairs with a full bath. Plenty of room for everyone in the family. The kitchen has been updated with a massive granite island and expansive granite counter space. It features all stainless steel appliances, double ovens and a flat surface cooktop to round out the equipment. There is more than enough room to store everything you need for big family dining.

The salt water pool, hardscaping, water feature and Koi pond were completed in 2010. This outdoor living area serves as a wonderful party area throughout the year and features an outdoor grill,
covered porch, open porch, expansive patio and beautiful landscaping that creates a private oasis.
As with everything Pat and Becky do, the home has been meticulously maintained over the years. The lower level HVAC was replaced in 2006 with a new compressor that was installed in April 2020. The upper of the Log Home AC was replaced in 2014. Both the Log Home and the Guest House Roof were replaced in 2012 due to hail damage.
Pat and Becky’s work never stops. Just this month they have completed an entire rear porch renovation, and like everything it has been done right. Foam insulation was applied before the tongue and groove ceiling on the rear porch as well as ceiling fans so that even at the height of summer there would be respite from the heat. A 350 gallon buried propane tank serves the gas logs in the main home, the gas grill in the outdoor area and a tankless hot water heater.
