About the property

"One Of Kind" 175 ac Priv. Estate w/4 Bedr & "Rec Rm" off Main St. Blowing Rock

This is truly a “One-of-a-Kind”, spectacular custom-built luxury home, completed in 2015, and located on a private estate, 3.4 miles from Main Street in Blowing Rock, nestled along the John’s River on 175 acres with over five miles of trails and roads. (Please see over twenty five star reviews from another owned VRBO Property Listing #496559 for this owner). This unique setting surrounds you with nature in a luxury environment. You approach this property by traveling down a state maintained gravel road for 3.4 miles to enter the key coded electronic gate at the property entrance and you are surrounded by thousands of acres of the Pisgah National Forest on three sides of this property. You will be overlooking the pasture and the rushing John’s River.

This home was custom built with design furnishings throughout, including Hickory Chair furniture, Thermador brand kitchen appliances, antique and rustic furnishings and many more high-quality touches throughout.

Enter the main level through either solid Anderson wood doors and you will be greeted by kitchen and family room with 42 foot tall stone fire place with each stone selectively hand picked on the property. There is also a similar outdoor fireplace under a covered porch of cedar with beams. The hearths are four feet by four feet offering tremendous heat, comfort and attractiveness. From the family room, you can view the river, waterfall, pasture and surrounding trees. The view is extensive (see pictures). The kitchen has a custom reclaimed barn wood designed island, which seats four, and custom reclaimed barn wood table for eight together with granite counter tops throughout. The kitchen floors are all reclaimed barn wood, surrounding by spruce stained walls. There is plenty of room for the chefs in the group with stainless steel professional Thermador appliances and every item you may require for cooking your favorite dishes and entertaining. The family/living area is furnished with Franco sectional sofa, three side chairs, 50 inch HDTV Samsung TV (Dish Network), coffee table set over a Kilim Afghan rug. This is arranged around a beautiful stone fireplace, stretching to the ceiling with various artwork and professional photography throughout the main level as well as the entire home. There is also a half bath with stainless sink on this level, locker room and laundry room with stand up Maytag washer and dryer. Cuisinart coffee maker, toaster and blender are also available.

There are two master suites upstairs, one that you enter through a private hall and occupies the southern portion of the second story barn section. Decorated with white wash spruce walls on one side and view of the river from the side window, it features a ceiling fan, furniture by local Restoration Hardware and North Carolina company Hickory Chair, including a King bed and two sitting areas together with 42 inch HDTV. There is a master bath, with separate tub and glassed in shower. There are two vanities in this bath with Delicatus granite counters. There is a walk in closet in this master.

There is another master suite on this level featuring reclaimed barn wood walls with spruce trimmed window and closet trim. There are views of the stream as well as 46 inch HDTV for your enjoyment. This room is lavishly decorated with King Maison Panel Restoration Hardwood bed, antique books and other amenities with double vanity and Delicatus granite. This Master Bath also has double vanities and glass shower.

Additionally upstairs includes the “Rec Room Man Cave” with new C.C. Bailey Duke Pool Table, Maxwell leather sofa sectional, deer hide foot rests, 54 inch HDTV, several chairs, including cast iron tractor stools, reclaimed barn wood wall, together with display Dutch Shipyard book case and a hanging seven foot alligator to provide the ultimate “man cave”. All of this overlooks the John’s River. The next room includes three “full size” custom built, bunk beds and plenty of closet space. There is also a full bath off the bunk and rec room with Vyara granite counters together with an additional full bath in the upstairs hallway. There is an additional guest bedroom with queen bed and beautiful furnishings together with guest bathroom with Sage Brush granite counter top and walk-in closet.

There are a total of five full baths available in this home with granite and stone together with glass door showers and one half bath on the first floor.

The outdoor area includes a large front deck (14x42) together with an outdoor fireplace, seating, gas grill and beautiful views of stream, trees, pasture, waterfall, etc. There is also a hammock across the stream for peaceful relaxation. There are miles of hiking trails on the property for you, your family and guests. Please keep in mind that you are surrounded by thousands of acres of the Pisgah National Forest and animals exist (please do not keep any food outside overnight).

This is a difficult place to leave once you arrive, but you are only 3.4 miles from Main Street in Blowing Rock (10 minute drive). The home is central to all the area's ski and tubing resorts, as well as other great High Country attractions such as ziplining, rafting, hiking, and more. Fabulous shopping and five-star dining is just moments away as well.

Amenities: Air conditioning, pet friendly (downstairs only to well trained dogs- not upper level), gas grill, internet, WiFi, two wood fireplaces (only outdoor fireplace during the summer), southern pasture views, northern and southern river views, gravel roads and hiking trails throughout, gated private entrance to property and large deck.

We are offering this home for families to have an enjoyable and memorable vacation in a unique private setting, yet close to town. Additionally, there is abundant wildlife throughout. We have rented an additional home over the last year on VRBO (#496559 - please see reviews) with wonderful guests, which provides us the confidence to rent this home a few weeks a year.

For a few restrictions, the lower barn section of this home will be unavailable to protect the guests from heavy equipment and machinery required to maintain the pasture, garden and trails. There is NO HUNTING and NO FISHING on this property. The National Wildlife Department has visited the property and our goal is to increase the fish population in the stream and improve wildlife habitat. We will provide a limited amount of “Trout Pellets” for you to feed the fish. The maintenance crew periodically improves and inspects the trails for fallen timber and may cut the pasture during your stay. You will not be disturbed at the home and you will probably not even know they are on the land.

Once within the property, there is a fork in the road past the house and a sign with names leading to the right. Please refrain from entering this area of the property as two families have a “right of way” through our land to enter and exit their property, which they have owned for years. There is a tremendous amount of privacy on this property for you, family and friends to enjoy.

Maximum occupancy: 12
