We found our piece of heaven at 4,000 feet elevation on 4 acres lying on the side of Cold Mountain, North Carolina. The breathtaking views of six, seven, and sometimes eight layers of the Great Smoky Mountains – all the way into Tennessee – are a sight to behold.
We have four seasons. Quiet and beauty beyond our wildest dreams. The sunsets are spectacular. We overlook the valley of the historic Pigeon River and we look down the mountain at the farms below. Watching the weather change is our pastime. Often the clouds temporarily settle below our house and the mountain peaks poking up through the clouds look like islands in a white sea. At night we see the lights of the community of Bethel in the valley surrounded by the gorgeous simplicity of the Nantahala National Forest.
Our temperatures are about ten degrees cooler than in the valley and twenty degrees cooler than Asheville (just thirty minutes away). The sounds of the howling wind are incredible…
There are more than fifteen original logging trails, which are now padded with grass. There are many springs on the steep mountain road ascending to our house.

A frequent traveler to Asheville for mountain getaways, we always reviewed home listings carefully for the most perfect one to truly experience all that the beauty of north Carolina offered. When we came upon our home, we were so taken aback that we couldn't even walk in. It was the best of all the homes we had ever stayed in, the things we wanted are in this house and exactly perfect.

Our home made of all natural wood supported by mortise and tenon bracing, held in place by wooden pegs. The view is the primary decor. There are posts handmade the old way, with no metal brackets.
The view is the centerpiece. The house includes a 30’ ceiling and post-and-beam great room, sky lights, wooden floors, stucco walls, walk-in closets, a stone fireplace, a steam shower, an Italian glass block shower, and a hot tub that sits at the edge of the mountain overlooking the valley. The cowboy motif continues into the downstairs guest suite and tv room, which feature collectible posters from cowboy movies and rodeos. The breakfast bar was made by an artist with a tree as the support. The bathroom tub and shower have a drop dead views. Large french doors open onto our fabulous, partially-covered timber-framed deck, overlooking the pigeon river valley. Windows are floor-to-ceiling across the entire front of the house.

From outside we hear coyotes and see black bear, grouse, white tail deer, and wild turkeys. There are a huge variety of trees: spruce, pines, chestnut, blooms of rhododendron and mountain laurel.
The area is full of folklore and history. The movie Cold Mountain was about a Civil War soldier named Inman; one of his grandchildren was the original road builder.
Our reaction to the peace, serenity and beauty of home when we first saw it gave us its name ….Truly Breathless.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About the owner: We're a blended family with lot's of kids and dogs that share a passion for the outdoors and the Blue Ridge Mountains!

              Why the Owner Chose Asheville:
              Our family has stayed at many mountain houses in the Asheville area and we all agreed on some specific criteria: 1- The view must be breath taking. 2- We needed to have luxury in a rustic environment. 3- We wanted to walk out of our home and go hiking. 4- We wanted a place with a 'special feeling'. You just don't know that until you experience it. 5- We wanted to be close to Asheville (We are 33 mins from door to downtown and have also discovered the gem of a town called Waynesville only 20 mins away). 6- We wanted a place with enough room for family and friends to gather and re-connect! We found it all at 'Truly Breathless'!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The previous owner built a 'one-of-a-kind' home on a beautiful mountain slope. The location is the perfect blend of mountain solitude and closeness to small town convenience.
