Experience the pinnacle of mountain luxury living in this gorgeous and conveniently located ridgetop estate featuring over 5,000 square feet of luxurious living space and long range mountain views from every side and nearly every room!
Drive up the paved drive and easily enter the main level with only a few steps. This level of the home features a huge great room with soaring cathedral ceilings and plenty of windows through which you are sure to enjoy the abundant mountain views. There are also several French doors that open onto the large wrap-around covered deck. Comfortable leather furniture is arranged around a 60...” HDTV with soundbar and a massive stone woodburning fireplace (limited firewood provided). Vibrant Persian rugs are positioned in the living and dining rooms and throughout the home. There is also a writing desk and a half bathroom off the living room.
Next to the living room is a spacious fully equipped kitchen. A Sub-Zero refrigerator & freezer sit side by side across from the wired island equipped with a sink and disposal well-lit by a wrought iron chandelier overhead. A 6-burner professional grade Viking gas stove with warming oven is in a ventilated cove decorated with Spanish hand-painted tiles. Dozens of custom cabinets line the walls and granite countertops are plentiful.
With access from both the kitchen and living room, the dining room from which one also enjoys beautiful mountain views is furnished with a large dining table that seats 10 comfortably plus a small glass table that seats two. There is also room for two in padded chairs at the kitchen counter.
Tucked away behind the kitchen is a spacious laundry area, a full bath, and a bedroom equipped with a queen bed and HDTV.
Upstairs is a cozy library with built in bookshelves containing plenty of good books to enjoy, a gas-log fireplace, a desk for anyone who may need to work while away from the office, a TV, and a small deck upon which to sit and enjoy the year round mountain views.
Down the hall from the library is the enormous master bedroom suite featuring a King bed, a large walk-in closet, a wingback easy chair, a dresser and armoire, a private deck facing west from which to take in the beautiful sunsets and mountain views, and an HDTV. The ensuite private bath has a double granite vanity, a water closet with a toilet and a bidet, and a huge tiled shower with two side by side showerheads.
The lower level of the home features a warm and spacious recreation room with 9’ ceilings, a pool table, brushed leather furnishings (including a sleeper sofa with a high-quality inflatable mattress) arranged around a woodburning fireplace with Spanish tiles set into the masonry, two French doors to the patio and yard beyond, and a 50” HDTV.
This level also contains two spacious bedroom suites - one on either side of the recreation room. Each has a King bed, TV, bay window overlooking the yard, and an ensuite bathroom. The south suite’s bathroom is also accessible from the recreation room.
Outside offers nearly as many wonderful entertainment activity choices as inside. The 8-person leatherbound hot tub is on the lower level patio off of the entertainment room and is completely private. There is a firepit overlooking the mountains a few steps off of the patio in the flat backyard. The main level has a wraparound deck with views from every side, and the padded outdoor living furniture is the perfect place to enjoy a snack while admiring the ancient, majestic beauty of the mountains. Breathtaking sunrises can be seen from the back deck, and awe-inspiring sunsets are in full view from the front deck.
You may not want to leave this peaceful haven, but if you do, you'll be pleased to learn that despite its ridgetop location, it's conveniently located just 8-10 minutes outside of Boone in the historic community of Valle Crucis near the Willow Creek Golf Course. Blowing Rock and Banner Elk are both just 15-20 minutes away. The home is also in a central location from which to journey to all the area's ski and tubing resorts as well as to other great High Country attractions such as ziplining, rafting, hiking, Tweetsie Railroad, Grandfather Mountain, the Blue Ridge Parkway, and more. Fabulous shops and restaurants are just moments away as well.
