These mountains have a warm, tender quality, and a gentle gradient of green to blue, inviting many people to this area to soak up the serene natural beauty and unique WNC culture. Just outside of Asheville, on the ridge of Bearwallow Mountain at 3,800ft, sits a beautiful home that will place you right in the awe of 270° long range Blue Ridge Mountain views. Currently on the market with an asking price of $3.5M, this custom stone home feels a bit like you’ve been transported to a European countryside, right here in North Carolina. With a mix of classical and eclectic styles, this property sets itself delightfully apart from more traditional luxury mountain homes.
Built in 2015, this 4 story, 6,418sf home features 4BD, 4 1/2 BA, on 2.5 acres atop the community of Grand Highlands. Gas lanterns and a beautiful arched doorway invites you into a grand entryway with Turkish marble floors, an elegant iron railed staircase, and a gallery with an impressive barrel vault ceiling made of reclaimed oak, lit with delicate antique chandeliers. A walk through the gallery treats you to tall windows inviting the north view of the mountains as you make your way to a formal living room with an expansive 600SF of space and large custom marble fireplace, perfect for gathering with loved ones.
The kitchen has been artfully considered, using custom cabinetry, antique furniture, and a gas fireplace to provide a classical design aesthetic while including high end appliances and finishes throughout. A dutch door opens up to a terrace off the kitchen and the butler’s pantry with beautiful cabinetry and such details as antique french country tile lead the way into the formal dining room. Two french doors bring light and fresh air in as you move from the dining room to a lovely outdoor terrace, surrounded by a wood burning fireplace and pebbledash walls. A perfect outdoor setting to enjoy the surrounding beauty, delight in conversation, and relax by the warmth of the fire.
Making your way up one of two staircases (or elevator if you prefer) brings you to the second floor, which includes two primary bedrooms, a study or media room, and an office, each with incredible north or south facing views. Continuing up to the top floor, you will discover a large open garret with beautiful dormer windows and a flood of natural light. This flexible space provides opportunity as an artist studio, or a fourth bedroom and also includes a full bath and a 300+sf finished storage space. A stunning, custom arched door greets you at the ground floor, just off of the spacious two-car garage, allowing private entry for guests with a cozy guest bedroom, full bath, and elevator access to the third floor. There is truly no detail left untended in every square inch of this lovely home. Guests have remarked: “You must see this home to grasp the beauty. The photos simply do not do it justice”.
Only 25 minutes outside of town, and two popular hiking trails in your backyard (Bearwallow Mountain Trail and Trombatour Trail), this elevated luxury home is a perfect private escape while being close to the community, culture, and unique lifestyle Asheville and Hendersonville have to offer.
