We searched for 3 years to find the perfect loacation . The property was owned at one time by Mose Cone--the inventor of Blue Jeans --and one of the richest people in the US at the beginning of the 20th century. We bought the land from decendants of owners/executives of Coca Cola. We built the house ouselves for our part time use--designed by us including many custom architectual design features.
