Property description

Our house is the only home in our beautiful 18 acre estate nestled beneath a high ridge on the banks of the New River, which creates a wonderful sense of privacy along with the sounds and scenery of nature-- the rush of the river water below and the sigh of the wind through the trees above.

This is a birder’s paradise, with hiking trails in either direction on the river banks, or for the more adventurous, up to the top of the ridge. Other hiking trails are nearby, as well as floating or kayaking outfitters to assist you. You can also fish from your own private bridge where the trout like to hide, or hire a local guide for fly fishing. During ski season, the slopes at Beech Mountain or Sugar are only 45 minutes away; Hawksnest and Appalachian even closer. The historic town of Todd is in your backyard, Boone is only 7 miles away (10 minutes), West Jeffersion is 10 miles away (15 mins), and Blowing Rock is 15 Miles (20 minutes). Interesting shopping, including outlet malls, quaint artistic areas and local color, Appalachian State University, are all within a short drive. But you may not want to leave your porch!

Nothing has been spared for your comfortable accommodations. This house has been completely remodeled within the last year: new carpet, hardwood floors, all bathrooms, and entire kitchen. On the main entry level there is a spacious living room with stone fireplace and 42” flatscreen TV and DVD player, a dining room seating 6 - 8, and a wonderful kitchen with gas cook top, double ovens, wet bar, and island with seating for two. There is a large gas grill on the main deck, with decks and porches on every level overlooking the river.

Your four bedrooms and four baths are configured as follows: On the main entry level one queen bedroom and sunroom, one full bath with walk-in shower, separate Jacuzzi tub, and double sinks—perfect for anyone who does not do stairs. Upstairs there are two large queen bedrooms and two full baths. Downstairs there is a large den with a sleep sofa (very comfortable) and a full bath.

This lower level is where the kids of all ages can hang out. There is a 42” flatscreen TV with DVD and ability to hook up your own games, Wii, etc., a game table for board games, cards, etc., a computer desk with Hughes Net (wireless or plug in) for your lap top or computer games. On this level there is also a kitchenette with refrigerator and microwave, laundry facilities, and two-car garage.
