Don’t miss this stunning, one-of-a-kind custom designed & built property perfectly located near Blowing Rock overlooking the Yadkin River Gorge!
Enter the main level via a cobblestone path and a solid mahogany wood door dating back to the 1700’s imported from Sicily. As soon as you walk into the home, you’ll see the huge arch shaped window overlooking the layered mountain vistas of the Gorge below. The flooring throughout the home is custom wide plank hardwood, and the ceilings throughout the main floor range from 10 to 20 feet high with interior 8’ doorways. Leather furnishings are arranged around this window to take full advantage of the breathtaking views, and in the evenings, warm up with a real wood fire in the stacked stone fireplace. Many of the furniture items were custom made in India using reclaimed wood pieces. An office space with a desk, wireless router, guitar, and couch is also available just off the living room and entry way.
Off the living area to the east is a large gourmet-class kitchen with stainless steel appliances including a double drawered dishwasher and a dual fuel five-burner gas range with an electric oven with convection baking option and dozens of square feet of countertop workspace. The honed granite counters were custom designed to have ample workspace while still allowing for decorations on a small shelf. There are three bar chairs at the island, and a round table for 6 is in a windowed nook just off the kitchen.
On the other side of the kitchen is a den with a couch, gas log fireplace, and a 60” HDTV, perfect for those wishing to be near the kitchen action while not missing a favorite show. Down the hall from the den and kitchen are two bedrooms, each with a Queen bed and an HDTV. The purple room features a beautiful handmade quilt from Guatemala, and the green room’s bed has a Tempurpedic mattress topper. Between the two is a full bath with a tiled tub/shower and a marble vanity.
On the west side of the main level is the master suite. This bedroom has a King bed, a 60” HDTV, and deck access. The private bath has a large soaking tub, a tiled shower with a quartet of body sprayers, a rainhead, and separate hosed handle, a water closet, and his and hers granite vanities. Under one of the vanities is a doggie door to a completely fenced in dog run.
Upstairs is another Queen bedroom with an HDTV, and a full bathroom with a tiled shower. There are two leather chairs at the top of the stairs, a perfect quiet place to work a crossword or enjoy a good book.
Step out onto the deck and drink in the stunning mountain views. The hills recede into the distance and on a clear day you can see up to 120 miles! Facing the south/southwest, you’ll catch amazing sunrise and sunset vistas from here. Situated at over 3700’ elevation, the breezes here are always crisp and refreshing. Enjoy a meal al fresco at the outdoor dining set, prepared on the gas grill. Children and pets can safely play on the deck, because it is completely enclosed and the railings are lined with tempered glass to allow for safety and maximum visibility. At night, enjoy the twinkling city lights of Lenoir and Hickory in the distance, and on a very clear night you can catch the light haze from Charlotte.
You may not ever wish to leave this haven of peace. When you do venture out, you’ll be pleasantly surprised that the home is located less than 10 minutes to Blowing Rock or Boone, about a mile from the Blue Ridge Parkway, and just minutes to all the High Country has to offer. Come experience the View House today!
