Belle Glade – A Stunning High Elevation NC Home
Look north, south, east or west, a window is there for your gazing. At approximately 4850 feet elevation, the air is cool and crisp. Each day unfolds a new view, eastern sunrises, western sunsets, and soft clouds drifting between the mountain peaks below.
Spring through Fall the masterpiece is revealed as the gardens explode in brilliant colors. The owner, renowned landscape architect for Busch Gardens for many years has created a botanical paradise with 1500 feet of stone walls, benches and pathways to enjoy 15 varieties of hydrangeas, 29 varieties of maple trees, 30,000 daylilies, yellow bells, hydrangeas, and every other conceivable perennial.
Contemporary in design, the breathtaking views of the Great Smoky Mountains all the way to Tennessee are the focal point of virtually every room. Porches and decks off many rooms extend the open feeling.
Some of the amenities include a large updated kitchen with granite countertops and beautiful wood cabinetry. The kitchen is open to the living room with large wood-burning Buck Stove with air circulating blower seated on a stone hearth with stacked-stone backdrop. There’s a main-level master bedroom with enormous ensuite bath with jetted tub and a separate shower of Corinthian marble, beautiful all-wood cabinets, and luxury lava vessel sinks. As in most of the rooms, the views from the master bedroom and bath are jaw-dropping.
There are many entrances to the house. A pretty courtyard provides one access to the ground level which includes a large game room with regulation sized billiards table that was formerly used by the legendary Minnesota Fats. A second living room with another large, wood-burning Buck Stove and two spacious guest bedrooms walk out to the lower deck.
You’ll find this stunning, gated, high elevation NC home on 3.32 beautiful acres just 35 minutes from Asheville, NC.
