About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 9 adults

One of a kind mountain home with 270 degree long range views. Brand new construction. This is an amazing custom home with tons of natural wood furniture. But it's the views that are surreal and better than words can describe. Enjoy the amazing views and cool summer nights. Watch the sunrise on the east deck, watch the weather patterns over Grandfather mountain to the West or watch the sunset over Mount Mitchell (the highest peak east of the Mississippi) on the West Deck. Rock fireplace on the covered deck and two more rock fireplaces inside house. Great views from every room in the house. Located on private 8 acres only 5 minutes from downtown Banner Elk. If you want to enjoy cool mountain summer breezes then this is the place to get away from it all. House sits at 4700 feet elevation. Typically 5 degrees cooler than downtown Banner Elk. The house is 4400 sq feet of natural wood and rock. When you drive under the massive log structure porte cachere the rock entrance and arched mahogany front door is breathtaking and then you walk in the front door to have your breath taken away again by the views. Large kitchen with granite tops, large island with raised natural wood bar creates a cooking and fellowship delight. Long range views in two directions while sitting at dining room table.

Fantastic two mile walk on gravel road up through the woods behind house. Perfect for a morning walk before Breakfast and coffee on the large deck. Only 5 minutes out of Banner Elk this puts you close to all the amenities of the high country. 30 minutes to Boone, 30 minutes to Blowing Rock and 30 minutes to Grandfather Mountain. Easy parking for multiple cars and a 2 car attached garage. Contact me dwbrooksii7 and the email address is a g mail account.

About David Brooks, Value Partners, LLC

I grew up in NC and have hiked all over the Appalachian mountains. I worked in banking for the largest portion of my professional life and I am now a writer, banking consultant, dog trainer, college teacher, and hiker. I graduated from Appalachian State University both undergrad and graduate school and have always loved the mountains.

Why David Brooks, Value Partners, LLC chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

I hiked on this property 30 years ago and was amazed by the view. The view is truly unique and my dream of having a home here has come true. I hope you will enjoy this truly remarkable property as much as I do. The property to the West is in a land trust and will never be developed. Sitting on this deck with a glass of wine or a cup of coffee will create an inner peace and make memories of a life time.

What makes this castle unique

Very Private yet only 5 minutes from downtown Banner Elk.

Views that words can't describe. You have to experience this magical place to appreciate it.

Bathrooms for everyone. Beds for everyone. Three rock fireplaces. My favorite spot is on the deck looking east, with a cup of coffee, as the sun rises over the mountains and burns the fog off of the valleys. Pictures just can't capture this.

Lovely home with world class views

  • 5 of 5

Great weather. Awesome outdoor fireplace area. Fantastic views in every direction. Most people are hiking two hours to have the view you enjoy from three directions. Beds comfortable. Great movie room for the kids. Makes you want to live there

My husband and I, along with four other friends, just recently vacationed here and had an incredible time! I've sold NC mountain property for over ten years, and the views are some of the BEST I've ever seen! The house was very clean and super convenient to town! 5 stars all the way!!!

Rented twice - summer and winter - amazing both times

  • 4 of 5

We first rented this house in July 2014 and it was amazing. We returned in January 2017 with the same crew, plus a couple new people. Once again it was a phenomenal place to stay. Any place that feels like home is a great rental, and this place certainly does that. The fireplace under the covered deck is a great place to take in the views, weather permitting. The entertainment room downstairs is really something. The picture and sound and seating were all perfect. It felt like we were in a movie theater. The owner is friendly, responsive, and great to work with. He let me know of a seldom used shortcut through the woods to Beech Mountain and it was a huge time saver. We went to both Sugar Mountain and Beech Mountain for tubing and skiing. The latter was definitely better, and closer! The only thing that keeps this from being a 5 Star experience was that there wasn't any Wi-Fi (but we knew that before renting). I'm sure we'll be returning again in the future.

Owner's Response: I'm really happy you enjoyed your stay. The only reason we don't have wifi available is because our router has had difficulty releasing IP addresses of various users and it has caused problems in the past. Wifi is there and will be returning soon. Look forward to having you again!!

The best 270 degree view of N.C mountains.

  • 5 of 5

This home is almost new and is very well appointed for rental property. We stayed during the hottest part of the summer and the temp. was usually 3-4 degrees cooler than in Banner Elk which has close to a 4000 ft. elevation--upper 50s- low 60s at night. Yes, 47000 feet make a significant difference. There are very distinct areas to enjoy in and on the areas around the structure. The deck spacing and fireplace on the deck is an exceptional gathering place.

We had 7 adults and 2 young children and there really was no need for us to go back down during the 5 days we were very near to the clouds.
