About the property

Exquisite 5 Bedroom 5 1/2 Bath English Country Estate On 130 Beautiful Acres

Welcome to your very own piece of paradise only 15 minutes from Asheville, North Carolina where you will enjoy your time away from the cares of this world. Located on a 130-acre gated estate, Wintersun sets itself apart from other mountain homes.

As soon as you drive through the gates, you will pass a rushing trout stream, drive through a lush green valley, cross over the bridge by the trickle down ponds, pass the horses playing in a mountain meadow and drive up and away to the fern and flower-bedecked verandah, which offers a comfortable seat and a breathtaking view.

The environment is a contrast in expansiveness and intimacy. From the verandah mountain ranges recede into smoky blue shadows, while on the arbor side the stone garden climbs 50 feet flanking a 24-foot waterfall surrounded by an enclosed lawn.

Inside the elegant country home are spacious rooms furnished with oriental rugs, antiques, huge stone fireplaces, books galore, with deep chairs and sofas for leisurely pursuits. All of Wintersun's bedrooms are beautifully appointed with fine furnishings, designer fabrics, lush linens, down comforters, private baths, cozy seating, and fireplaces, with fabulous views of the blue ridge mountains.

For disc golf lovers, in addition to 4 miles of private hiking trails there are 2 private disc golf courses which have been rated in the top 5% of private courses on the east coast.

Need more rooms? If you need more rooms please see the Wintersun Cottage located on the estate at #907170. This is a beautifully decorated 2000sf home with 4 bedrooms and 3 baths.

Our stay in the Asheville area.

  • 5 of 5

We lived in Asheville in the late 80's, what a transformation the city has been through. The downtown area is alive with live music and brew pubs.

Our stay at Wintersun was also magical. A fabulous property with wonderful amenities. Fully stocked for bathrooms and kitchen which made our stay fantastic. Judy was the perfect host and left us to enjoy the fabulous property. Many properties boast about the number of sleeping guests but I can tell you this property delivers. The grounds are spectacular and we will return in the warmer months to take full advantage.

My only comment would be the kitchen appliances are dated and could use an upgrade and televisions in the bedrooms would also be a plus.

The Pictures Don’t Do This House Justice

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our moms’ weekend get-away. We had plenty of bathrooms to get ready, a beautiful dining area, and the most relaxing porch of all time with an incredible view. We were about 20 minutes from Asheville, which was fine for us. The house was organized, extremely, clean, and easy to find. The owner, Judy, was also very helpful and welcoming. We would go back in a heart beat!

Beautiful estate home near Asheville, NC!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many properties over the years through VRBO & I must say the Wintersun Estate is now officially our favorite property for numerous reasons! The property is breathtaking & the location is convenient to all of the area attractions including the Biltmore as well as Chimney Rock. I would highly recommend this home to anyone planning a visit to the Asheville area of North Carolina.

Another perfect visit!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family just had our second annual “family weekend” at Wintersun. Our first weekend was so special that we were expecting the second visit to pale in comparison - we were wrong. It was wonderful! The house comfortably accommodated the whole family (including 4 babies), and had the perfect amount of larger gathering spaces, while still feeling warm and inviting. It feels like a very grand family home. We’re already planning our trip for next year.
