Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We have decided to share our mountain home and this beautiful setting along the stream, (outdoor fire pit and large deck with cooking availability) for those families who want to enjoy a wonderful mountain experience in a private setting, yet close to Blowing Rock and Boone. We also enjoy traveling and renting around the country and recognize the necessary elements for a comfortable and care free vacation. Our enjoyment to this area led us to purchase an additional 180 acres three miles off Main Street in Blowing Rock where we have completed the construction of a new home on the John's River. This home is also available for rent and can be located by property number 744556.

Why the Owner Chose Lenoir, NC, USA (City):
This property is extremely unique, with a beautiful setting along the stream. If you enjoy the outdoors for walks, wildlife, outdoor night fires, outdoor cooking, hot tub, etc. this is the home for you. Also, we purchased this home for the setting and the additional apartment above the garage, which offers our kids and their friends freedom and privacy, while allowing the adults to gather in the main house. There is a loft, full bedroom, full bath and kitchen above the three car garage.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
To make this an enjoyable vacation, we provide all the necessary amenities. Outdoor fire pit along the river (fire wood included), books in library are available for your enjoyment to read, WiFi, Xbox above garage, large screen TV's in main house and above garage. The only area that will not be available is the garage.
