Waynesville house description

Magnificent Mountain Home Work of Art - A wonderful place to gather friends and family for that special event...A perfect home away from home to relax and soak up the beautiful mountain views right along the Pigeon river. Ti date over ten couples have picked our home for their wedding celebration.!...Like other luxury mountain top homes, as you approach this home you will appreciate the home’s picturesque presentation and obvious beauty. The view is clear and almost forever as you gaze across the expansive vista. However, the similarity to other homes ends as you cross the entry threshold and suffer the complete loss of breath one typically experiences on a first visit to this magnificent work of art. You immediately notice and can never forget the hand carved stair railings and beams, finished and polished by hand but in their natural state. Across a voluminous huge room filled with furniture, windows and light, you notice the hand selected stone fireplace filling the end of the room. A work of art in itself.

Off to the left is a Gourmet’s delight of a kitchen, spacious and filled with granite and stainless and everything necessary to prepare a gourmet meal for two or thirty. As you begin to wander and look, you soon discover that this is the collective work of artisans and old school craftsmen who painstakingly excelled, an owner with a profound appreciation of nature and art combined with an unlimited budget all who collectively felt challenged with the task of building much more than a luxury home, but more a magnificent work of art, the likes of which most people have never had an opportunity to behold. And you among the fortunate are now standing here. As you continue to explore its 6 bedrooms and 5 baths, you remain amazed at the attention to detail framed in the most usual ways, such as a whole tree trunk, hand hollowed and polished to accommodate plumbing for its use as a sink base in lieu of the typical cabinet...One of many unique, small details that you will soon discover as you explore. Tile work abounds everywhere also displaying and embellishing the beauty and uniqueness of this fine work of art. You will discover a wine cellar with a tasting room and a home gym to work out if you have the energy. A steam room, heated bathroom floors, the list goes on and on. A study with a magnificent sound system will draw you in and capture you for hours. The home could virtually be in contention for a Noble Peace Prize for the amount of tranquility it bestows on its visitors if it were not for the continued arousal of curiosity of true art lovers. If you happen to be an architect, designer, builder, curator, art collector, nature lover, you do yourself a disservice by not experiencing this work of art.

And by day, if you wander outside onto the natural stone terrace, you’ll see a commanding view that looks far beyond any horizon or down to a lovely rushing river filled with the sound of water splashing on the rocks. Perhaps tubing or trout fishing kindle your youthful spirit. At night sitting in rocking chairs by a huge outdoor stone fireplace with a glass of wine will kindle your imagination or looking up to the same star filled sky that Van Gogh was so inspired by but a night sky more clear and bright than you’ve ever experienced.

Whatever you do, don’t miss this opportunity to spend a week or two living within a true work of art. Who knows when the Owner may say no more, and it’s gone from all of us forever. In the meantime if you are fortunate enough to stay here, I assure you that you will leave amazed and truly blessed by a memorable experience in this mountain top work of art.
