Statements by individuals involved in the sales

Listing Agent for both properties, Jack Camprini, stated: "Tranquility Knoll represents the finest example of an arts and crafts style home in eastern United States. The fact that Bob Timberlake exercised complete creative control over all elements of the home is evident in every detail. Falling Waters Mountain Lodge is spectacular for its construction by Finland's finest lodge home designer, and that's not to mention the home's ideal waterfront location, stunning mountain views and pastoral setting in the 4,000-acre Falling Waters Mountain Lodge private community."

Owner of both properties, Ramesh Venugopal, stated: "Every time you drive into Big Canoe, the breathtaking natural beauty of this 7,200 acre pristine forested preserve whispers to you and reminds you that you have entered a National Forest-like setting. Time here is not measured in minutes or hours, but by the passing of the seasons. The next soothing thought is that of your family in the casually elegant 'Tranquility Knoll,' which was designed by Bob Timberlake. Set in the serene seclusion of the Cox Mountain neighborhood, Tranquility Knoll is an expression of Bob's love for the American Arts & Crafts movement and his discerning eye for detail. From the furniture to the soap dishes, the home's elements are all seamlessly integrated to create a unique lifestyle in the cool north Georgia mountains. Every room draws its cues and decor from the palette of Bob's world-renowned paintings, making the home a true work of art."

Founder and President of Concierge Auctions, Laura Brady, stated: "Tranquility Knoll and Falling Waters Mountain Lodge were both designed by masters of their respective styles – Arts & Crafts and Alpine Log.
