Property description

This spectacular home on the 'right' side of the tracks was custom built and completed in 2009 by owner Doug Sigler. Doug's love of woodworking and the skill developed by a lifetime of devotion to his craft are clearly evident in every room: cherry kitchen, master closet and dressing area, ash and bamboo floors, tambour vanity doors. These handcrafted details shine as brightly as the mountain views.

Cantilevered porches and a stone patio overlook the nearby Toe River a short distance from the train tracks. Deer will often come by to drink from the river and it's not uncommon to find wild turkeys gathering on the lawn. Trains pass by frequently. And yes, you can feed the fish from the dock on the pond (We'll show you where we stash the fish food.)

A brief verbal tour:

As you walk into the front door of Coal Train House, you'll find yourself in the Great Room, a large open living and dining space with a wonderfully functional kitchen to the right. A wide hall to the left includes the coat closet, a half bath and stairway to the lower level.

At then end of the hall is the master suite with a queen size handcrafted bed. There's a comfortable sitting area for reading and relaxing as well as a dressing room with custom cherry closets and vanity. A full bath with jacuzzi tub, walk-in shower and vanity with two handmade sinks completes the suite.

Sliding glass doors open to the stone patio and lawn on the lower level which offers two spacious guest rooms and full bath with shower. One room features a custom-built queen size-bed and walk-in closet; the other has two twin beds and a walnut game/card table designed by Doug.

Coal Train House is close to nature but far from the beaten track. It makes a great getaway for one or two couples. Children are welcome but supervision is necessary with both a deep pond and an active RR track in the back yard.

Penland School is 10-15 minutes from the house and supermarkets are about 20 minutes away.
