Hendersonville cottage description

On top of Davis Mountain, 'Heaven's Door Step' is located in a secluded acres in a rural area above the Laurel Park just west of Hendersonville off Hwy. 64 on the way to Brevard and the Pisgah National Forest.
Our home features a large rustic tiled, screened deck with working natural stone fireplace (with a generous supply of cut wood) surrounded by our newly planted orchard and 'Frazier Family Fir Tree Farm'. The twenty mile view extends toward Asheville and beyond. We have recently added a hot tub where you can sit and see the mountains while in the spa. The area is relaxing with almost as many wakers, joggers, dog walkers, and just plain 'walk for the view' strollers than cars.
The rising sun will greet you each morning and put you to bed each evening.
Well, that's just about it. Obviously, we enjoy 'Heaven's Door Step' and believe you will too. Call if you have any questions or concerns. We would love to chat awhile.
Dennis and Carol Frazier

                              Car: Necessary

                              On the top of Davis Mountain west of Hendersonville, NC, in the Laurel Park area off of Hwy 64. The view! The quiet solitude and a colony of abino squirrels, ands surrounding woods in every direction! The mountain breeze! ...did I mention the view and the abino squirrels?

                              Our natural stone working fireplace on the rustic tile 20'x25' screened porch provides twenty mile overlooks toward the Laurel Park valley and Asheville and beyond. Hendersonville is 10 min., away at the foot of the mountain, Asheville is to the north, Brevard is 16 minutes west, and historical Flat Rock (with the NC theatre) is 12 minutes south; each area unique with all of their restaurants, antiques, wineries, farmers markets, museums, library, apple farms, theatre, historic sites. Pisgah National Forest is a short 15 minutes west.

                              Your only problem will be leaving. And you will not want to come back down the mountain once you arrive; so, get your groceries at Ingles in Laurel Park before you come up.. Your only other problem will be attempting to remove family members from one of the six wooden swings on the one and half acre property in order to eat, sleep, or travel. But you can always come back anytime you want.

                              Last year we planted our muscadine orchard, continued planting our 'Frazier Family Frasier Fir Tree Farm' and installed a stone entrance; and you are in the middle of it all. In fact, you are welcome to tag one of the Christmas trees and come back for it in two or three years or your Christmas.

                              We have continued the orginal owner's tradition of calling our home, 'Heaven's Door Step'. You feel suspended between heaven and earth. The rising sun will greet you over the east ridge each morning and put you to sleep each night as it sets over the west ridge and you can watch all 180 degrees of it.

                              You will see more walkers, joggers, and dog walkers on the Brightwater Road than cars. Some folks just stand and watch the spectacular views and changing sun sets. In the winter, Turley Falls is visible along the road.

                              Well, that is about it. It would be a plum pleasing pleasure to personally answer any questions or concerns. Just give us a call; 1-803-517-9815, any time.

                              We truly dnjoy 'Heaven's Door Step' and think you will too.

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 1990

                              About the owner: Our mountain home has been our family since 1990, when my parents purchased it. We purchased from them in 2003 and enjoyed it so much we decided to rent it out for others to enjoy.

                              Why the Owner Chose Hendersonville:
                              Our home is a vintage brick ranch built in 1958 by a developer or builder named Mr Fell and was part of the McCarson farm. The second owner was Clio Wortman, who was a popular architect in Fla. He designed one of the buildings in Main street Hendersonville. My parents bought it from him in 1990. The legend is the wife of the first owner liked the view from the hill where the house was going to built, that she described it as being at 'heaven's doorstep.' So we decided to give it that name.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                              We have built a beautiful 20x25 screened porch with a stone fireplace, with a slate patio floor. You can enjoy meals while looking at the mts and listening to the birds and the quietness. It sits upon a hill on 1.25 acres with lots of greenery and stonework. There are multiple swings for your enjoyment and a bonfire pit in the back. A new addition of a hot tub outside the sliding glass doors takes in the view of the mountains.
