Property description

This original 1947 home has been meticulously restored and remodeled to provide an experience that is unmatched in this beautiful mountain setting. Combining authenticity with a wealth of modern amenities, you and your guests can enjoy southern mountain charm without straying from upgraded comforts. Original hardwood maple floors have been refinished throughout, and the plaster walls, also original, hold a historic beauty without a single crack. Original glass knobs adorn the doors as you pass from room to room, and the TV cabinet, vanities and headboards were handcrafted by a local artisan to blend perfectly with the vintage appeal of the cottage. Kitchen and bath surfaces are granite for appeal and durability. The expansive deck is a perfect setting for entertaining guests, enjoying the sweeping mountain view, or simply relaxing as the sun makes way in the evening for the stars overhead. Truly an excape for any season, the original, restored mantel frames beauty and warmth with the modern convenience of gas logs.

Finding another area with so much authentic charm and convenience for activities would be very difficult. Resting just outside the hectic pace of the city, your cottage is still only 15 miles away from the Biltmore House in Asheville. The town of Black Mountain (.9 miles west) is full of interesting options for antiquing, gift shopping, and the small-town charm of a local ice cream and chocolate parlor, the old Hardware Store, and outstanding dining throughout the area. Summers offer free musical performances each Thursday evening at Lake Tomahawk sponsored by the town of Black Mountain, where families, children, and pets alike can visit and enjoy the evening. No trip to the Blue Ridge is complete without a picnic on the Parkway and day trips to Mt. Mitchell, Lake Lure and Chimney Rock, Linville Falls and Blowing Rock, Lake James, Fontana Dam, Hendersonville, Waynesville, and many others.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: This is the house where I grew up. It was the only place I lived until I went to college. I now live in Baton Rouge, Louisiana but love to spend time here. I have traveled all over the world and seen amazing things but the Blue Ridge Mountains are some of the most beautiful. I am a certified financial planner and live with six cats.

Why the Owner Chose Black Mountain, NC, USA:
My uncle built this house in 1947 with wood that came from the family logging business. The structure of the house is wormy chestnut that is no longer available. My parents bought the house just before I was born. My mother played under the oak tree when she was little. The massive tree is over 100 years old.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The house next door (#426913) was my grandmother's house. The two houses together provide a great retreat for extended family or friends. The two houses sit on an acre of land with lots of trees, shrubs and wildlife. You will see birds, butterflies, squirrels, rabbits and possibly bears. The home is close to I-40.
