This exquisite 10+ acre, unparalleled views, property rests atop the eastern continental divide as you enter the village of Blowing Rock. Donated to the Appalachian State University Foundation, proceeds from the sale of this property will serve to benefit the students and programs of Appalachian State University's Mariam Cannon Hayes School of Music. The 10.3-acre residential property has breathtaking long range views and level building sites. A large estate home was built for J.W. Cannon in 1915. Named "Kallalanta", or Heavenly View, by Mr. Cannon, it was the Cannon Family Summer Estate until Mrs. Hayes' passing. The home features sweeping long range views, beautiful woodwork and stone fireplaces. Adjacent to the home is a carriage house with an upstairs apartment. A second house, the Knox house, was built in 1914 and overlooks the gorge and Grandfather Mountain. Although these structures offer substantial renovation potential, they do need repair and are offered as-is. After a century of ownership by one family, the opportunity is now at hand to transform this truly unique property as an estate or development. Visit http://kallalanta.com for additional information.
