Stairway To Heaven is a charming, custom-furnished and decorated upscale mountain chic cottage in the Yonahlossee gated mountain resort community near downtown Blowing Rock and Boone. Stairway is nestled amongst mature hardwoods on a large rolling lot with a creek running through it, federally-protected National Forest surrounds the Yonahlossee community offering walking and hiking trails, and Shulls Mill Road offers a technical and demanding cycling road to cycling enthusiasts. The renowned Blue Ridge Parkway is also less than 2 miles away, and both Tweetsie Railroad and App Ski Mtn are also just a few miles away!
The main level of Stairway To Heaven offers an updated Kitchen with stainless appliances, and an adjacent open Dining Room with a nice counter-height dining table which seats 8 guests. There is outdoor dining and a gas grill just outside the sliding glass door in the Dining Room. The Great Room boasts soaring vaulted ceilings and hardwood floors, has comfy custom furniture, a huge HDTV, and a stone wood-burning fireplace. There is a half bath/powder room which was custom painted by a close friend of the owner, who is also a known area artist. Also on the main level is a Queen Suite with ensuite full bathroom, and an HDTV. There is a covered front stoop porch above the parking area, and an open-air deck on which is the gas grill and outdoor dining and bistro tables. An exterior stairway goes down to the lower deck and hot tub.
Upstairs provides a private Master Suite with a King Sleep Number dual-control mattress, HD Smart TV, alcove with a custom hand-carved desk and comfy chair, walk-in closet, and a two-room ensuite full bathroom with double vanity and jetted tub and shower! Large wooden indoor shutters in the Master Bedroom can swing open to allow guests to look down into the Great Room below, and out at the wooded, seasonal mountain views through the three levels of windows across!
Downstairs at the foot of the steps is the laundry room with washer and dryer. Across the hall is the Game Room with large 43" HD Smart TV, game table which is a pool table that converts to an air hockey table, and comfy seating. There is a central hallway full bathroom, and the generous Bunk Room has two Twin over Twin bunk beds, an HD Smart TV, and a small table ideal for children to play games and do crafts.
