Maggie Valley house description

Welcome to The Wrens' Nest! This fabulous, new, Contemporary Craftsman home sits on Cataloochee mountain at 4300 feet, yet is easily accessible to everything!. The view is spectacular in every season, and the house itself is stunning. We have the best of everything and offer the house for rent to those vacationers who are looking for a truly luxurious home! Some features include: vaulted wood ceilings, soaring fireplace, 2 decks & a covered porch, open living-living-kitchen area, separate game/TV room, 4 bedrooms plus a bonus 'dorm' room, 4 full baths, beautiful walnut floors, hot tub, optional high speed wireless connection, and more!

The Wrens' Nest is located 1.5 miles from the Cataloochee ski area and ranch, 2 miles from Ghost Town, 5 miles from the Maggie Valley Club, 7 miles from the Skyline Drive, 10 miles from Lake Junaluska and Waynesville, and 15 miles from Cherokee. Day trips to Asheville, Nantahala rafting, Highlands, and other charming spots are easy, but you will love it here so much that you won't stray very far!

House Details: The Wrens' Nest is a new, luxurious, contemporary home with top quality construction, furnishings, appliances, bedding, and location. It is a perfect vacation home for those individuals who want the very best and are willing to care for it. The house is built on two levels, with the main living spaces on the upper level. We have a flat driveway and you enter the house on the second (main) level, so you don't have to negotiate stairs or a steep driveway with your groceries and luggage. On this level are the living-dining-kitchen area, bar, office, master suite, main deck, 'screenless' porch, powder bath with shower, laundry/mud room, grilling deck and double garage.

The living - dining area is furnished with comfortable but quality materials and is designed for relaxation and conversation. The centerpiece of the room is the wood burning fireplace with raised hearth and 20 foot high stone face. A down sofa and several comfortable chairs will draw you to the fire, the view, or a good book!

The bar with beverage refrigerator and storage for glasses and mugs will make drink prep very convenient.The dining area is fitted with a table which is set up to seat 6 and expands to accommodate 10! Additional seating for 4 is available at the huge granite island.

The open galley kitchen is a delight to work in. It has a built in refrigerator with paneled doors, 6 burner gas cook top, regular oven, convection-microwave oven, and a very quiet dishwasher. The 12 foot x 5 foot island and tall pantry cabinets provide plenty of storage for food and cooking supplies..

Just off the kitchen is a delightful coverech porch, open to the views on two sides. Unscreened, since we have no bugs at this elevation, you will love the comfy rockers and picnic table for four as you watch humming birds and feel the mountain breezes.

The master bedroom opens to the deck and the hot tub just outside. It has a king poster bed, dresser, 48' wall mounted HD TV, DVD player, and lounge chair. You will love our remote controlled window shades, which can be lowered for darkness or raised into the windows and door without any loss of view! The master bath has heated floors, wall mounted TV, double vanity, soaking tub, and separate walk in shower. A walk in closet and toilet room complete the suite.

On the front of the house is a spacious office with built in desk and seating for three. We have an optional high speed wireless card, so feel free to bring your lap top and get a little work done in beautiful surroundings.

Truly magnificent long range mountain views are seen from every room!

On the lower level you will find a large TV room with reclining sofa and chairs, game table with seating for 6, and a wet bar with under counter refrigerator, sink, and old fashioned popcorn maker. Also, we have a long covered deck with fabulous mountain views, three bedrooms, and two baths.

The 'junior master' suite features a king bed and private bath with large walk in shower and double vanities. The queen bedroom and 'bear room' share a full bath with two vanities. The 'bear room' is a kid's delight, featuring two double beds.

For those of you staying in summer, spring, or fall, you will love the unheated bonus room over the garage. Outfitted with three single beds and plenty of space for lounging, it is a perfect getaway for the teens in your group!

Some additional features of the house include: 4 televisions with Direct TV service; 2 DVD players; sound system with speakers in the living area, porch, and main deck; optional wireless network card ; completely equipped kitchen; top quality bed and bath linens, separate grilling deck with large Webber gas grill, enclosed double garage with openers, and a security system.

                          The Wrens' Nest is a new home in a new development called The Seasons of Maggie Valley. The Seasons is located off Fie Top Road, 1.9 miles up from Soco Road and 1.5 miles below the Cataloochee Ski Area. Although the house is located at 4300 feet elevation, the access up Fie Top Road is very easy; you will need a 4 wheel drive and possibly chains in snowy weather, of course.

                          You will never see views as spectacular as those from The Wrens' Nest. Long range mountain views, with no telephone wires, roads, or roof tops to spoil the beauty, are simply stunning. Regardless of the season or the weather, you will love looking out over the mountains and watching the clouds drift by.

                          The house is perfectly situated to enjoy privacy in a serene mountain setting yet have easy access to skiing, golf, restaurants, shopping, and other activities.

                          Year Purchased: 2009

                          About: We live in Jacksonville Florida and built the Wrens' Nest as a second home, not planning to rent it. However, since we can't be here ALL the time, we decided we would rather share it with discriminating renters than leave it empty for weeks at a time. We have a high end oceanfront vacation business in the Ponte Vedra / St. Augustine area and have had excellent success renting to people who love our homes and take very good care of them. We think you will love our wonderful Wrens' Nest, perched high above Maggie Valley, with outstanding long range views and all the amenities you could think of!

                          Why Maggie Valley:
                          We had been looking for the perfect NC mountain location for years. Our criteria included: at least 4000 foot elevation; long range mountain views; NOT surrounded by other houses; no telephone wires to spoil the view, easy access to the main roads; good restaurants and attractions nearby; and a flat driveway and entrance to the house. As you can imagine, these qualities are VERY hard to find in the mountains, especially when you insist on ALL of them! But, the minute we saw Lot 5 in The Seasons of Maggie Valley, we knew we had found our dream location. Then...all we had to do was build the house!

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The Wrens' Nest is NOT the typical mountain 'cabin'. It depends on what is important to you, of course, but we think you will appreciate our combination of wonderful features: *unbelievable long range mountain views while enjoying easy access to and from the house *light and bright interiors with quality and comfortable furnishings, bedding and decor; enjoy our original art, award winning quilts, and all the other touches that make this house a home; * a house filled with special amenities: walnut floors, heated bath floors in the master, stereo system throughout the house and decks, 5 televisions/DVD players; lots of games and puzzles for kids and adults; top quality appliances and cookware; separate entertainment room with game tabel and wet bar; * two huge decks, a covered 'screenless porch', and even a grilling deck *hot tub and wireless Internet...both OPTIONAL in case you don't need them *double garage with automatic openers, security system, 'tankless' water heater... and more. We challenge you to find a comparable home for anywhere near our price!
