High Country evening, surrounded by tulips and daffodils, with the lull of wind chimes in the background. The Great Room greets one at the door, and the surrounding space is extremely open and engaging. The large stone fireplace invites one to settle down and stay awhile. Four trailer loads of timber were brought in from Tennessee Log Homes, and the wood surrounding the living space gives it that hearty cabin smell found in many High Country homes. One can truly tell this is a family place, with many charming knick-knacks ornamenting the shelves that wrap around the room. The skis, sleds, and wagon wheels hanging on the walls provide

a glimpse into the past when one is seated on the classic wicker furniture to enjoy a cozy family game night. Pam McCoy, an interior designer herself, recognizes individual taste and tries to create an interior that fits the needs of a family. The McCoys like renting the home to families and made an effort to create the feel of going home to mom and dad’s. Pam understands that taste is very personal, and her attention to detail is what makes this Great Room a truly unique showpiece with a comfortable, relaxed ambiance. The kitchen is a very useful space stocked with stainless steel appliances and anything else one may need to cook a gourmet meal. A beautiful chandelier over the island showcases the gleaming green granite countertops and cherry tinted cabinets, with large beams lining the ceiling. Much of the beautiful wood found in this home was salvaged from an old farmhouse across the road, which was framed in wormy chestnut filled with stunning natural knots.
