This luxurious, 3-story hilltop home is surrounded by 46 lush, nature-filled acres populated by abundant wildlife. From its soaring 18-foot window front and its 1,000-square-foot deck, you will enjoy unobstructed mountain views as well as views of your one-half mile of North Toe River frontage. Walk or drive the one-quarter mile down from your modern home to your own large, private beach area that was designed for sheer relaxation and recreational pleasure. It’s like having your own private resort where you can fish, swim, picnic, hike and hunt. The mature riverside trees provide plenty of cool shade on the warmest of summer days.

At the riverfront beach, your family and guests will enjoy many hours of pleasure throughout the changing seasons. This is a unique property in the Western North Carolina area, where you can relax and enjoy the clean North Carolina trout waters and incomparable fresh air in what is essentially your own personal sanctuary, your private fishing spot, and your escape from the demands of the world.

This haven of a homestead is accessed by a well-maintained private lane. White Oak Creek, one of two year-round creeks on the property, welcomes you as you drive down the lane to your beautifully-appointed home. Not only does this three-story home have four bedrooms and two-and a half baths on the second and third floors, it has a separate, fully-appointed guest apartment with private access on the bottom floor. It’s perfectly suited to provide privacy for guests, or as a separate apartment for a teenager or parents. The elevator, accessible from all three floors, makes life easier in all the ways you can imagine–from transporting groceries up to the main kitchen to comfortably accommodating a wheelchair. The large deck is perfect for taking in the glorious views morning and evening and for sunbathing throughout the day. Although there are several neighbors on the lane, you have a totally private setting.
Extensive hiking trails can be explored on the 46 acres surrounding the home, and enjoy the 750 acres of State wildlife parkland above the property which ensures your homestead will remain undeveloped and pristine for generations to come. The property is also offered as a 23 acre parcel with the house and 23 acres as vacant land, both with frontage on the North Toe River. While the sheltering mountains and long-range views may make you feel you are far from civilization, it is only a twelve-minute drive into the town of Spruce Pine. Asheville is approximately one hour to the south, and Beech Mountain and Sugar Mountain ski resorts and the town of Blowing Rock are 45 minutes to the north.
If you have your own plane and wish to arrive by air, Morrison Field with its 3,001 foot paved airstrip is just seven miles away. Plenty of rainfall and gently-lying land make self-sustaining planting and gardening a comforting reality. The 1,000-gallon fueled generator will keep the house running and plenty of deep well water pumping for two–to-three weeks should there be a power outage.
Privacy, safety, luxury, nature and peacefulness make this not just an exceptional home, but an exceptional lifestyle.
