Taxes on the home are just $1,955 annually with a homeowner association fee of $1,450 per year. The house has a year-round view of Hogback Mountain; located behind the tee box on #3, the backyard also looks down the sprawling, tree-lined fairway of the par 4 hole. The photos below provide a good idea of how well the home has been renovated and how nicely it is sited within the community. (Note: The owners are willing to include the home’s handsome furnishings at a negotiated price.)
The Burlingame golf course was designed by Tom Jackson and opened in 1985. Check out the club’s web site -– click here -- which includes an interesting tour of the layout. The member-owned golf club has instituted a “legacy” membership, extending full member privileges at no additional costs to the parents, children and grandchildren of members.
Burlingame Country Club is located in Sapphire, NC, just 15 minutes from Cashiers and a half hour from the entertaining -– some might say “artsy” -- town of Brevard. Suffice to say that there is plenty to do in the area throughout the year.
