Property description

We invite you to bring your family and friends to Brevard for a relaxing stay at Point of View. Perched on five secluded acres, Point of View overlooks the French Broad River valley and the stunning mountains of Transylvania County yet it is only 10 minutes from picturesque downtown Brevard. This very private mountainside setting provides postcard worthy views of the French Broad River winding through the valley with the granite face of Cedar Rock rising skyward and all of this is framed by the gentle peaks of the Blue Ridge mountains.

If you are looking for variety in their vacation, Brevard is a particularly great vacation destination. Locally, the small mountain town of Brevard offers a diverse array of unique shops, art galleries and great restaurants. Beyond the town limits you will find thousands of acres of state and federal forest land to explore: Year-round enjoy exploring the road bike routes and mountain bike trails that slice through Transylvania County. Rent a canoe or kayak and float down the French Broad River to really immerse yourself in quiet and peacefulness. If you choose to drive a short distance, take in the Biltmore Estate in Asheville or a performance at Flat Rock Playhouse near Hendersonville. After a day of shopping or exploring, come home, build a fire in the outdoor fire pit, grab your favorite beverage and watch the sun slip behind the mountains overlooking the French Broad River Valley. As the saying goes, “Life is good”.

The chalet style house features a magnificent multi-story native stone fireplace in the sunny, spacious Great Room. Soft fleece blankets, books, playing cards, puzzles, wi-fi and a flat screen cable television are provided for when you just want to loaf. If cooking is your thing, you will find the kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils, pots, pans, casserole dishes, food processor and the like so cooking is a breeze. We also strive to keep a basic supply of dried herbs & spices, oils, and sweeteners so you don't have to spend a fortune on basics at the grocery store just to cook a flavorful meal. Once the cooking is done there is a large dining table in the Great Room that seats eight to ten people. In warm weather, you might want to dine on the deck with the pastoral valley view as a backdrop for your meal. As for sleeping, the three bedrooms are comfortably appointed with a queen size bed in the master bedroom on the main level and double beds in the two upstairs bedrooms. A queen size convertible sofa is also provided for additional bedding.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1968

About the owner: I am a native of Brevard, living on a nearby mountain with my wife and two sons. We all are pretty active and love living in the mountains where we can hike, bike, ski and snowboard. My wife and I have various business interests but we spend much of our time rejuvenating various pieces of real estate we have acquired throughout our marriage. I inherited Point of View after my parents passed away. It was their home for many happy years and now it is a place to share with others. It is my desire for Point of View to be a place for families and friends to gather, relax and refresh themselves with quiet moments and conversation while rediscovering the simple pleasures of life in a comfortable home with a view that is a daily gift.

Why the Owner Chose Brevard:
I can take no credit for having a second home in Brevard as I am merely the grateful son of some determined, hardworking people who loved Brevard but most especially this piece of heaven we now call Point of View.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Point of View is a great spot to stay because it is so close to the county's many waterfalls, hike and bike trails and river access points.
