About the Property

Blue Mountain. Thoughtfully decorated. Convenient. 4 Bed & 2 Bath. Books & Art

Main level master suite with old fashioned claw foot tub, a sleeping porch/office with a twin bed, and a living area and open floor plan kitchen. Sit, rest, read and soak in the magnificent view. On the lower level you will find a large private guest bedroom with a wall of windows opening to the mountains. A comfortable den with TV separates this guest room from a welcoming bedroom with built in twin bed loft and a second twin bed--great for children or other visitors. The second den on the lower level gives children/friends their own 'space' if you are visiting or wish for quiet on the main level. We welcome well behaved dogs, and have a outdoor fenced area and plenty of places to walk your dog on a leash. Internet, cable, books, art supplies, woods, walking, toys: something for everyone!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: Our family lives full-time in Durham, NC.. Beth is a quilter and fabric artist; Rob, a fund raiser. We have lived part-time in the Laurel HIll neighborhood for 25 years. We are readers, and have a wonderful library inside, and a 'Free Little Library' outside. Novels, cookbooks, poetry, and books about this remarkable part of the world are all around. Enjoy. We are an artistic family and enjoy painting, sewing, quilting, etc. You will find plenty of art supplies and a sewing machine that we share with interested visitors.

Why Boone, NC, USA:
We offer: convenience, privacy but not isolation, peace, wonderful views, tucked away rooms and a bigger gathering room along with pine floors in every room. Our very livable house, has a beautiful view and details that add to comfort, peace, and enjoyment of this these Blue Ridge Mountains. We are close to both Boone and Blowing Rock, and all the activities they offer. We work with visitors to be sure you have the best possible visit to our home. In the best sort of ways, time seems to slow down in Laurel Hill. The moment you drive up the mountain, we think you will feel the peace and calm.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This wonderful home is set among trees facing the mountains. It is a very private home in a safe, wooded, walking, quiet neighborhood. We are positioned at 4800 feet up the mountain. We offer the best of both worlds---plenty of privacy on the street side of house with windows everywhere on the mountain view side. Laurel Hill is a neighborhood with private streets on which only a few cars travel. Silence and pitch black nights allow for plenty of star gazing and night walks. Carefully designed home. It is a house that 'works' super well. When you walk in to the entry hall, you see a beautiful view and feel the warmth and peace of this special one of kind home. We call our home 'Caritas' -- love for all humankind and charity--generosity. This house feels like 'caritas' to our family and we hope it will feel this way to you, our visitors.
