Property description

Truly a Piece of history...Our amazing home was hand-crafted from 2 log cabins built in the 1860's, and originally located in the Tennessee Mountains. The cabins were carefully dismantled, transported and reassembled in their current location in the early 1980's. When we arrived on the exceptionally beautiful mountain top and saw the antique square cut logs, beautiful stone foundation and fireplaces we fell in love with this home even before seeing the interior! The area has the feel of a bygone era where time moved more slowly and we felt like we had come home.
Our beautiful mountain home was completely remodeled in 2012-2013. The house has 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths, 2 wood burning fireplaces and a wood stove. It is professionally furnished and decorated and strikes the perfect balance of old fashioned mountain styles with all the comforts and amenities of modern living. All of the heart pine used in the floors, walls, and beams was salvaged from a cotton mill in South Carolina and the chestnut and oak was reclaimed from several barns north of Weaverville. Respecting the historic value of the house we carefully restored the bathrooms and created a state of the art kitchen with an Italian gas/electric range and island that the whole family can enjoy. The porch is the best ‘room’ in the house. With its fresh mountain air, breathtaking sunset views, rockers and a swinging bed, it’s great for relaxing with a book or taking an afternoon nap. The furnishings in the house are a combination of pieces from Ralph Lauren and other designers as well as antique pieces thoughtfully and lovingly collected throughout the South. We have had a wonderful time decorating our home!
In addition to the beauty of the home itself, we also have breathtaking views of Big Bald Mountain and the 3rd hole on the Wolf Laurel Golf Course. Our full Country and Village Club memberships allow you to dine in the clubhouse and use the pool, playground area, exercise facilities, pavilion, trout ponds (yes we have rods!), hiking trails and shelter/cookout area close to The Bald Mountain. Golf is available for a fee and whether you golf or not this course is a must see. It is located on the highest elevation of any golf course in the South East and is both incredibly beautiful and incredibly challenging.
Since we have owned this home it has become a passion for us. We have fallen in love with the area and the people here. Great care has been taken to create a unique and comfortable living space. We are only able to use the home during the winter season, and we hope very much that you can enjoy it during its prime season.

Ours is one of the few privately owned properties that have access to the Appalachian Trail - 2,200 miles from Maine to Georgia of the best trail in the USA. (Yes we have maps at the house!) The views from the house are breathtaking and the fresh mountain air is invigorating. The Wolf Laurel Stables are a 5 minute drive from the house and if you choose to go into town, Asheville is only 30 minutes from the mountaintop. It is a mecca of history, arts, restaurants, shops and filled with lots of fun. Asheville is home to the Biltmore Estate, constructed by the Vanderbilt family in the late 1800's and the largest privately owned home in the U.S.. (Check it out at: www.biltmore.com) There is also the Grove Park Inn (check out the porch rockers!) and Pack Square Park.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We live in Canada where we own property in Lake of the Woods Ontario. We love the outdoors and it shows in our choice of surroundings both inside and out.

Why the Owner Chose Wolf Laurel, Mars Hill, NC, USA:
Our family has been in the furniture business for many years, which has brought us to the Asheville area numerous times for the High Point Market. During these stays we have explored the area extensively and fell in love with the mountain styles, and the breathtaking nature. When we found Wolf Laurel we were hooked and we began searching for a vacation home in the area for our family to have a mountain getaway. We were captivated by this historic antique log house, which we have now converted to our home away from home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
When we stay here, it feels like taking a trip back to a simpler time. The stress is gone. There is plenty to do in the area, but some of the best times are just laying around the house - a book by the fireplace, a glass of wine on the porch, unwinding in the claw foot tub or the steam shower, just slowing down and relaxing. It is not hard to do when surrounded by the incredible natural beauty and the fresh mountain air.
