Overview

About the property

Exquisite 5 Bedroom 5 1/2 Bath English Country Estate On 117 Beautiful Acres

Welcome to your very own piece of paradise in Asheville, North Carolina where you will enjoy your time away from the cares of this world. Located on a 135-acre gated estate, wintersun sets itself apart from other mountain homes.

As soon as you drive through the gates, you will pass a rushing trout stream, drive through a lush green valley, cross over the bridge by the trickle down ponds, pass the horses playing in a mountain meadow and drive up and away to the fern and flower-bedecked verandah, which offers a comfortable seat and a breathtaking view.

The environment is a contrast in expansiveness and intimacy. From the verandah, mountain ranges recede into smoky blue shadows, while on the arbor side the stone garden climbs 50 feet flanking a 24-foot waterfall surrounded by an enclosed lawn.

Inside the elegant country home are spacious rooms furnished with oriental rugs, antiques, huge stone fireplaces, books galore, with deep chairs and sofas for leisurely pursuits. All of Wintersun's bedrooms are beautifully appointed with fine furnishings, designer fabrics, lush linens, down comforters, private baths, cozy seating, and fireplaces, with fabulous views of the blue ridge mountains.

Our stay in the Asheville area.

  • 5 of 5

We lived in Asheville in the late 80's, what a transformation the city has been through. The downtown area is alive with live music and brew pubs.

Our stay at Wintersun was also magical. A fabulous property with wonderful amenities. Fully stocked for bathrooms and kitchen which made our stay fantastic. Judy was the perfect host and left us to enjoy the fabulous property. Many properties boast about the number of sleeping guests but I can tell you this property delivers. The grounds are spectacular and we will return in the warmer months to take full advantage.

My only comment would be the kitchen appliances are dated and could use an upgrade and televisions in the bedrooms would also be a plus.

Another perfect visit!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family just had our second annual “family weekend” at Wintersun. Our first weekend was so special that we were expecting the second visit to pale in comparison - we were wrong. It was wonderful! The house comfortably accommodated the whole family (including 4 babies), and had the perfect amount of larger gathering spaces, while still feeling warm and inviting. It feels like a very grand family home. We’re already planning our trip for next year.

Stunning, gorgeous, elegant, serene and comfortable manor house

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent four days at Wintersun last week as an early Christmas present to ourselves. We all six couldn't get over the beauty, elegance and superb layout and amenities of this wonderful property. The home easily accommodates up to 10 people comfortably, there are ample living and dining spaces for everyone to enjoy, wonderful gas-lit fireplaces in every room, the bedrooms are a luxurious retreat, the views are spectacular and the owners (Judy and Susan) have thought of everything. They were attentive when we needed them but gave us all the privacy we were desiring. The grounds of this incredible property were a winter wonderland while we were there (we got approximately 10" of snow over the weekend!) and we spent many hours on the porch watching the snowfall and enjoying the mountain vistas. We frankly had to drag ourselves away from Wintersun to head into Asheville to tour the sites and each time we returned, it felt like home. But far more impressive! I would recommend this amazing property for anyone desiring a combination of Southern charm and a blend comfort, beauty and serenity. If we're fortunate enough to return to Asheville, we'd not stay anywhere else.
