Live In The Blue Ridge Mountains Of North Carolina
Asking Price: $549,000 USD
Live in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. This is a custom made, timber frame, one-owner home in Mars Hill just 17 minutes from Asheville, North Carolina. Asheville is home to the largest home in America, the Biltmore House. It is also home to many artisans and crafts people with studios in the River Arts District. Over 100 artists living in the Mars Hill area participate twice a year in Arts Safaris offering the opportunity to purchase unique hand made objects of all sorts.
The house sits on five wooded acres and has an additional five acres that is also offered for purchase. It is an open concept home with kitchen, dining, formal and informal spaces all within the same area. Large Anderson windows open the home to a 40-mile view of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Large window overhangs provide passive heating in the Winter and cooling in the Summer. Area heating and cooling is also provided for the upstairs bedrooms and the downstairs master bedroom with dual heat pumps.
The kitchen is enhanced with granite countertops and a craft-made backsplash with Honduran tossed glass, tile and porcelain. The kitchen is also supported by a spacious pantry with a dumbwaiter that brings groceries up from the two-car heated garage. There is also a detached (third car) garage built in 2014 that has been used as a workshop.
The second floor houses two bedroom areas: one enclosed with spacious closets and one open also with a large closet. The two bedrooms share a full bathroom. Between the two bedrooms is a common area that has been used as an office space. The common area overlooks the large front windows that provide lots of light and a 40-mile view.
A fold-back ladder, also located in the second floor common area, leads up to a small third floor loft that can be used as a bedroom for grandchildren or as an attic space for storage.
The partially unfinished heated basement has a large space that can be used for crafts or for starting seeds to be transplanted to a garden area. The basement could be finished as a game room. The finished laundry room also contains a (third) full bath. A heated two-car attached garage is spacious enough to store bicycles, an ATV, and other equipment as needed. The dumbwaiter leads to the kitchen pantry above.
The property private driveway is accessed by a state maintained road (Oscar Young Road). Oscar Young Road is a dead end road that leads up to the end of the hollow. An additional 5 plus acres on the road has over 50 hazelnut bushes and a few blueberry bushes and is available for separate purchase.
