                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: My husband and I own a photography business in the RTP area of North Carolina that keeps us very busy. We started our business in Apex 17 years ago when we moved an historic 3000sq,ft. 2 story home to our current location and added a 2000sq. foot studio on to it as well as built gardens on 2 acres of the property for outdoor portraiture.What we created was a beautiful place to live and work from but we soon found out we never 'left' work. Our cozy cottage in the mountains has become our place to just unwind and be immersed in nature and the quite sounds of bubbling brooks and birds chirping.We can get in our car and be in the quaint adorable town of Blowing Rock when we want a fine dining experience or just walk down to the stream and catch our dinner out of the stream. We feel like we have the very best of both worlds here and always find it so hard to pack up the car and leave here when work beckons again. Once you have spent a few nights here you will understand the magic of our place and will want to make it one of your 'happy places' as well.

                      Why the Owner Chose Boone:
                      We had been looking for property in the nc. mountains for a few years when we found this little slice of heaven. We told the realtor we wanted mountain views as well as a stream and she said it was almost impossible to find, so when we saw this property we new we had found a most unique and perfect place. We had our home built here in 2006 and have called it our 'happy place' since our 1st day of moving everything in. We have made so many lasting memories with our 2 girls and now a son-in-law as well. Our youngest will be attending college in the mountains this fall so we will hopefully have more reasons to spend time here. Our wish is for you to experience the serenity and beauty of our most beloved home and make new and lasting memories of your own.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      To get to our house you have to traverse a beautiful winding road cut through the mountains bordered by deep forests on both sides. We sit 1/12 miles off the main road and when you arrive at our home you feel that you are in a place a million miles from all the hustle and frenetic activity of our city or suburban lives. It is so quite and tranquil and yet just a short ride to any activity you would want. Fine dining, great shopping and wonderful spas are all a short drive for us ladies.We abut up to a 5000 acre NC. game-lands so you can walk a few hundred yards and be in some of the most pristine and beautiful hunting land in the whole state. Walk to bottom of our property and go fly fishing for trout or tubing down the stream.Drive a couple of miles down the road and you will find historic properties to tour,equestrian centers to ride or board horses,as well as a public park with picnic and basketball areas and playground equipment.Go a little further and you are on the blue ridge parkway,one of the prettiest scenic drives in the country. Whether you want to come and explore the wonderful Blue Ridge Mountains are just sit and read a book on the front porch you are sure to love every minute here.
