Property description

This beautiful, Craftsman style home has the most beautiful view of any home in the Blowing Rock area. The cottage truly has a Million dollar view with amazing, panoramic, views which include Grandfather mountain, Hawksbill, Table Rock and the Blowing Rock.

It is very near to the Village of Blowing Rock and nearby restaurants are only minutes away.

Relax in front of the real log burning fireplace on leather sofas on the main floor. Entertaining is easy with open dining and kitchen spaces. It is a professional kitchen with granite counter tops and a large island. The kitchen has all the amenities that you need. The dining Room sits 6 with 3 additional seats at the island.The long range views can be seen from the Living room, Dining room and Kitchen.

The house is perfect for two couples, with 2 separate yet open areas on each floor. There is a Master Bedroom downstairs with a large closet and Bath. In addition to the Kitchen and Dining area, there are two sitting areas and a wet bar. There is a real wood burning fireplace in the main living room. There is a large workroom/laundry area on the main floor and a viewing deck.

The upstairs includes one bedroom and bath. There is a luxurious sleep sofa in the upstairs den that can double as third bedroom.

The amazing view can be seen from the upstairs balcony. You will want to spend a lot of time there. You will want to entertain in the upstairs area as there is a wet bar, beverage cooler and sitting areas with a TV so that you can watch the game or play cards etc.

This house has been a labor of love. The furniture and bedding are comfortable and luxurious. We have used only the best in terms of materials with beautiful real stone, oak trim and hardwood floors throughout. The baths are spa like in feel with hand scraped recycled wood sink vanities and tile floors.

There is a back yard where you can enjoy the view as well as from the deck. Not many places can boast of an incredible view and still have a back yard with roses and lilies and rhododendron.

You can't beat the convenience of being located so close to Main street and having the privacy of your own place with this incredible view. This is absolutely the best place to enjoy the High Country and all that it offers.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: My husband and I currently live just outside of Blowing Rock. We love the mountains and love to hike, ride motorcycles and just enjoy the view. We want to introduce other people to this wonderful place. I am an interior designer by trade and have worked in the building industry and the furniture industry for years. It comes natural to me to create beautiful spaces for people to live.

Why the Owner Chose Blowing Rock, NC, USA:
Blowing Rock and the mountains of North Carolina have a special place in my heart. It is an intensely spiritual place and being of Native American heritage, I find that I am at peace here. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. I have lived in North Carolina all my life but I didn't move here until 2001. It took me that long to get to Gods country!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
I love coming into this home with its amazing views! The world just slows down when I am relaxing on the decks or in front of the fireplace. It is a quiet place even though it is close to town. We have added extra insulation in all the walls so that you don't hear the hustle and bustle of the outside world. We named this place Elkstone because the original home that was here had special Elkstone rock fireplaces in it. Elkstone is a native rock to this area and you can still see remnants of this stone in the old outside fire pit and in the old stone wall in front of the house. We used this as inspiration when we selected lamps, art work etc. We found an old antique antler chandelier from a castle in Germany that is gracing the entryway. We also found a special lighting sconce from the Mayview Manor which was an old grand hotel that used to be in Blowing Rock. We have tried to stay true to the traditions and history of Blowing Rock.
