Property description

Perched on a small side summit of Shumont Mountain, this property features unparalled views of Hickory Nut Gorge all the way to Mt. Mitchell. Even the pictures we have included here don't reflect the spectacular setting. On over 15 acres, Windsong allows you to enjoy the quiet solitude of the mountains, conveniently located just 10 minutes from many activities at Chimney Rock and Lake Lure Marina as well as 35 minutes from Asheville's many cultural attractions.

Built in 2000 and remodeled in 2015, this spot has been a special gathering place for our family, and we know you will want to return year after year to enjoy this mountain retreat.

On the main floor, you'll enter the dining area, featuring a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and cozy seating. The fully-stocked kitchen with stainless-steel appliances opens to the dining area so you can entertain while preparing your meals. The family room, and adjacent game room, are a perfect gathering place, complete with 65" flat screen TV. Curl up by the second fireplace and enjoy modern conveniences such as Netflix, wifi and DirectTV.

With a full-wall picture window looking out over all of Hickory Nut Gorge, the ground floor master bedroom suite boasts the best views of the property. Even the master bathroom has spectacular views over the gorge.

Along the entire length of the house is a covered porch with 180 degree views of the mountains.

Upstairs, you'll find two bedrooms with a full bath including bathtub/shower combination- one bedroom with a queen bed, the other with two twin beds.

The house includes full size washer and dryer.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We grew up in nearby Rutherfordton and moved all across the United States, but still call the mountains of NC home. As kids, we spent summers at Lake Lure.

Why the Owner Chose Black Mountain, NC, USA:
Although we live in other parts of the US, we consider the mountains of NC home. When we come back, we wanted a special place to enjoy the mountains and nearby Lake Lure/Asheville and other sights to share with our kids. While enjoying the serenity of a mountain retreat, you can reach Asheville in 30 mins and Lake Lure marina in 10 mins.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
From the front porch, you have a 270 degree view of Hickory Nut Gorge to Mt Mitchell. You are within 10 mins of Lake Lure and 30 mins of Asheville.
