Driving along the gentle driveway, passing native flowering plants and mature trees your then welcomed by this one of a kind home; then you will instinctively know you have finally found the home of your dreams. I have a feeling you will either just want to sit a few minutes on the over 790 sq feet of decks or walk around the three sides of the home on the wrap around decks as you listen to the sounds of the waterfalls from the Cascade Lake… Or you will just get so excited that you can’t wait to see the inside so lets take a minute to share the interior with you.
Upon entering the home you will be impressed at the details that this owner took in building his dream home in the mountains of Western North Carolina; just a little over 10 miles to Historic Downtown Brevard. The front door opens into this light and bright custom designed home and into the kitchen with maple cabinets, tile flooring, pantry, half bath and all open to the dining and great room. The 1690 sq feet plus of the main level offers an open floor plan with soaring ceilings of 22+ feet in height, oak hardwood floors in all areas, but tiled floors in the wet areas. The focal point of the great room is the massive wood burning rock fireplace and the soaring ceilings. Just beyond the great room you will enter the master suite that offers a private deck. You will be impressed with the all the built in’s in the library with a large bay seat window overlooking the front flower gardens.
The upper level not only offers two large bedrooms with usable dormer areas, a second full bath, but a well thought out extremely large office-setting multi purpose area that all over looks the greatroom. I should not forget to mention all the ceiling heights are almost 10 feet with the bedrooms offering cathedral ceilings. Plus the second level offers over 940 all usable square footage.
This exquisite home also offers a full unfinished basement along with a heated and cooled workshop with the exterior door opening to gently rolling side yard. The gentle topography of the land could be cleared for future equestrian areas, but is currently wooded with short range mountain views. A trail system is offered to enjoy with the distant sounds of the Cascade Lake waterfall and the Merrill Creek. Welcome home to 220 Cascade Trail Pisgah Forest, North Carolina.
