They intended to stay here forever – the ideal setting and location, large, open, flowing rooms, unimpeded views and sunrises that never cease to amaze. The house was near perfect when they bought it, but being planners and doers, they planned, and they did – investing over $175,000 into carefully thought out enhancements.
The house is tastefully designed for persons of all mobilities. Inside amenities include walls of windows – floor to ceiling to take in the amazing mountain views, hardwood and tile floors, French doors, and pocket doors, and a custom entry door hand-carved by a Black Mountain artist. There’s an elevator, gas fireplace, dining area with breathtaking views and access to a large screened porch with underfloor screening to keep pesky pests out. There’s a large kitchen with newer appliances and granite countertops, a large master bedroom with dressing room and ensuite bath, tall ceilings, and a 2nd master on the lower level.
Built to last, the home’s foundation is poured concrete being more water and fire-resistant and less likely to have issues with the pressures of earth shifting and wind.
Outside the sellers added beautiful walkways including 3-tons of boulder-stone steps leading to an 8’ x 10’ pump house to shelter the whole-house water filtration and
softening systems and a 12’ x 16’ workshop with 220 power. Trex Decking was added, creating maintenance-free decks.
Wild turkey and deer visit frequently and just across the small stream bordering the property are 58 acres in a land conservancy that can never be developed. The home can be purchased with 1.58 acres or with an additional 1.69-acre lot which has a well and prior septic approval.
It’s evening now and habit draws them to the deck. Wine for her, single malt scotch for him. As the candle gives up its shape, they share the bittersweet of knowing their love for this place will soon pass on to a new steward.
