Sky Valley estate description

Mountain Mansion built by custom home builder as his private retreat. This site was selected with the desire to have a private mountain lodge in close proximity to Highlands NC. This home is locate in a gated community with large lots and is approximately 8 mile from Highlands. The home offers nearly 10,000 square feet of heated and cooled space with over 3,000 square feet of porches. The exterior of this stately lodge features a mixture of stone, slate, brick, wood plank, and logs. The interior of the home features wood floors throughout, hand built custom cabinetry, stone counter tops, restaurant quality appliances, and custom mill work. The great hall flows from the kitchen, to the living room, through the bar, and into the billiards room. This area is perfect for entertaining and designed in a straight line so that the rooms flow easily from one to another. The kitchen and living room share a see-through stacked rock fireplace that towers 22’ over the living room. The bar is hand crafted seated between the billiards room and living room. It is a full service bar open to both sides for easy access. The main level also offers a full theater for entertaining guests. The theater is contained within a scene room built to resemble the downtown area that the owner frequented as a child. The theater name “VICTORY” is taken from the very theater he visited in his youth. You enter into the scene room and walk across the brick street to the theater. The other store fronts in the downtown room include a candy shop and old fashioned barber shop. The lower level of the home includes a 50’s style diner complete with period appliances. The bar and bar stools for the diner tie into the Coca-Cola style diner booth. The room has a large fireplace, vintage Coke machine, Texaco gas pump, Space Mission pinball machine, and vintage Jukebox.

The outdoor space of the home offers covered porches, screened porches, sundecks, and a stone patio fire pit. The home sits at the top of Ford mountain at nearly 4,000 feet and looks down on the Sky Valley golf course and lakes. The majestic mountain views are framed by tall timbers. The colorful mountain views in Autumn a breathtaking and inspiring.

There are 5 bedrooms each with a themed bathroom. The master bedroom features a fireplace, private deck, and palatial bathroom. The carved stone tub sits in the center of the master bath beneath a chandelier. This tub was carved from a giant boulder. The inside has been smoothed and the outside has some of the rough chisel marks from carving. The master shower comfortable accommodates 2 and has a bay window with beautiful mountain views. There are his and her toilet rooms as well as his and her custom hand built vanities.
