Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: I live in the Caribbean half of the year and at the River House the other half. The Caribbean is fantastic in the winter and so are the Blue Ridge mountains in the spring,summer and fall !

Why the Owner Chose Pisgah Forest, NC, USA:
I looked at over 150 homes to buy back in 2009. I fell in love with this house and it's location. Sitting on the front porch in the morning with the morning mist,listening to the birds is just over the top wonderful ! There are weeks that I just don't leave the River House property. It is a slice of Heaven.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Wonderful private wooded entry and grass front yard with a large stone boulder fire pit, front porch with it's porch swing chairs are wonderful,back entertainment patio area can accommodate up to 50 plus people and the interior of the house is very well appointed.
