Private mountain estate of over seven acres, minutes from the college town of Banner Elk. Situated at over 4,000 feet elevation, this serene location offers mountain views over the Watauga River Valley and cool temperatures all summer. The main residence has received major renovations, with new kitchen appliances and granite countertops in the kitchen and baths. High ceilings allow views from the main and upper levels and offer tremendous natural light throughout the day. Two stone wood burning fireplaces complete the mountain getaway feel of this home. Separate from the main home is a two-bedroom, two-bath apartment with full kitchen, also recently renovated. A unique aspect of this estate is the artist's studio in the detached garage. This facility offers a half bath and room for endeavors of art, or for any imaginable passion. Lastly, a fourth structure on the compound is a propane fired kiln, which can be removed from the premises, or remain and become the catalyst for your new art.
