Property description

Picture yourself sitting on the glassed/screened in porch at sunset, overlooking the Smoky Mountains, sipping a glass of complimentary wine. It does not get much better than this summer, winter, spring and fall. Our three bedroom two bath country cottage has all the modern conveniences and the charms of the country. If you are a couple looking to get away from it all or a multi generational family having a holiday get together, Bella Vista is right for you! The main floor has an open plan great room with a fully stocked large kitchen for preparing great meals for family and friends. In the summer spring and fall you will find pots filled with fresh herbs that are there for the picking...even tomatoes too! We have a lovely dining area with an antique farmers table and a large comfy living room with a gas fireplace and satellite TV,(although the view from the windows and the the glassed in porch with four rocking chairs off the living area provide great scenic beauty)...there are two bedrooms on the main floor with Queen beds, master bedroom has a bathroom with shower and tub. Lower floor has a bedroom with twin beds and a game room/satellite TV set up... gas heater, Ping Pong table and Pool table with plenty of room for the family. We have stocked the house with books, games, puzzles and DVDs for those nights you just want to stay in. There are three decks off the house, all with panoramic views; upstairs has a wood and charcoal burning grill and downstairs is a gas grill, fire pit and comfortable adirondak chairs for sitting and enjoying the view and the fresh air. There is a side lawn with fruit bearing trees if you are lucky enough to be there in season. We installed a brand new washer and dryer when we renovated in 2013 and the house is fully air conditioned in the summer (although you will want to throw the windows open for the crisp cool summer evenings) and furnace for the winter. This is a four seasons rental, we are set up comfortably for 6 people although we could sleep 8 ..all linens, toiletries, dishes, pots and pans and other essentials are provided...the cupboards are filled with spices, oils, vinegars, mustards and other mainstays to start you on your cooking experience. We have thrown great dinner parties and barbecues for friends and family.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: As a south Floridian, my husband spent his childhood summers in the Smokies, and always felt drawn to the area...I am a native New Yorker and had never been to the area until I married Richard 13 years ago...we had come up to the area 3 times before renting for three months last summer...we fell in love with the Hendersonville/Flat Rock area and decided to find a place of our own. We spend our winters in South Florida and now will be spending a lot of time in NC...it is a dream come true having this incredible house with a $5 million dollar view...and having the ability to share it with other like minded people.

Why the Owner Chose Hendersonville, NC, USA:
We spent a few weeks looking for a house, and we were beginning to think we were never going to find what we wanted...nothing seemed right. As we were about to look at another property, we had an unexpected detour in the road...and had to go out of our way...when we saw a small For Sale By Owner sign...we followed the road, saw the view and said this is it...and two weeks later we owned it...it was meant to be. We think everyone who stays here will feel the same...fresh clean mountain air, beautiful vistas from almost every room...and sunsets too magnificent to describe...the house is an open plan home with lots of light. There are hiking trails, golf, theater, shopping, dining nearby...no shortage of things for the whole family...and great dinners to be had with sunset cocktails on the closed in porch overlooking the valley and at least 7 mountain ridges

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is on a paved road, maintained by the county and the state, it is 3000 feet up and quite private, but minutes away from Hendersonville and Flat Rock and the Blue Ridge Parkway and Pisgah National Forest...and a half hour from Asheville and the surrounding parks and recreation areas.
