About Jim Massey

My name is Jim Massey. I am a registered Civil Engineer, General Contractor, and Real Estate Broker, born in Winston-Salem. I came to Roaring Gap in 1965 where I met and married my wife, Nancy. She is a registered nurse with a specialty in surgery at Hugh

Chatham Hospital in Elkin, and my partner in the real estate and construction business. We have designed and built many luxury homes, and intended this one to be our ultimate mount house. Nancy is an excellent amateur decorator, and it really shows in this home.

Jim Massey purchased this chateau / country house in 2009

Why Jim Massey chose Stone Mountain State Park

Our house sits on one of the elite sites in Olde Beau Resort and Golf Club in Roaring Gap, NC overlooking the signature no. 15 hole. From the semi-circular roofed view deck that spans between the two "towers" of the home are views of two complete holes, and the near and distant mountains. Inviting entry porch welcomes you into the Foyer and Dining Room with solid walnut floors and 11 foot ceilings. Next comes the Great Room with vaulted wood beaded ceiling, stone fireplace, large TV, computer desk, and wet bar with granite and reclaimed wormy oak tops, wine cooler. Continue on the walnut floor into the Kitchen while looking at the view all the way where you will discover custom built wormy chestnut cabinetry housing a Wolfe gas range with gas oven and special exhaust hood, separate Wolfe electric oven, 36 inch Subzero Refrigerator, 36 inch Subzero Freezer, Dishwasher, built in Microwave, 50 inch TV and pantry. Relax in the circular Morning room with panoramic windows. Master Suite has high tray ceiling, a "tower" sitting area for relaxing and views, real Jacuzzi for two under large windows, big glass block and tile shower with window, 2 seats, and 3 showerheads, two wormy chestnut vanities with granite tops, private space w/ bidet, and door to foyer powder room.

An amazing house tucked away with a beautiful view was the perfect getaway with friends.

  • 5 of 5

This house and property is a must see! A long weekend with friends in the middle of winter was a perfect getaway to enjoy this spectacular house and the surrounding area. With so many wineries in the area , golf courses ,and shopping, our weekend flew by and was most enjoyable.

This house has everything you need to feel comfortable and spoiled at the same time...will definitely plan to visit again!!

Labor Day Week-End 2016

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with three other couples for four days and four nights over the Labor Day week-end. Our friends and us have been taking a trip every Labor Day week-end for the past 10 years and this place was by far the best we have stayed . You will fall in love with this house, we always have trouble obtaining places that have bedrooms equal for all, not here, there is not a bad room in the place. Sitting on the deck at night next to the fire place was a highlight for all. It is on a beautiful golf course and the ladies enjoyed traveling to the near-by wineries. We will definable be staying here again. Not to mention that Jim and Nancy are two of the nicest people you will ever meet. You cannot miss with this place, top notch!

A Terrific Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the amazing opportunity to stay in Nancy and Jim's beautiful home in Olde Beau. Each and every extraordinary room was gorgeously appointed and yet so warm and cozy. We were here to visit my sister and her husband because of some serious health issues. Being able to return to this special place each day and evening brought great relief, calm, and rest to our hearts. Having coffee in the morning on their sweet and luxurious deck gave us a huge boost to start our days. We also got to see the new fawns grazing on the golf course tees down below. All very special. I love to cook and their kitchen was perfect! The olympics were on and with the two huge televisions easily seen from the kitchen, it made cooking even more fun. I could always find just the right pan, dish, and appliance to complete all that we needed to do. Their master bedroom suite was a delight, especially the huge bathroom with deep jacuzzi. I loved that! We had lots of fun as well playing ping pong, pool, and exercising in their creative rooms. Both Nancy and Jim were so helpful, friendly, and gracious in making our stay a wonderful one, even with the difficult circumstances. We would recommend them and their spectacular home in a heartbeat. If we ever get the opportunity to return, we would love to do just that!

Fantastic Trip!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family event in the area, and thought it would be a great opp for the whole family to stay over for a few days. In short, the house was spectacular, and had beyond the creature comforts. You can really tell that Jim and Nancy were proud of their home, and treated it accordingly. The house was well appointed and had all the amenities to easily cook meals for 12, and there were more than enough sleeping areas, and well as general hanging out areas. And, we ended every night by the outdoor fireplace gazing at the stars.

Stone Mountain Park is nearby, and we enjoyed a day hike to the waterfalls there. Very pretty. Afterwards, we found ourselves back in time at the Stone Mountain Country Store for ice cream, sandwiches, and an unexpected bluegrass jam session. It was a fantastic trip, and we're already trying to figure out when we can get back there.

Amazing stay in Roaring Gap

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wedding at Olde Beau. We rented this property it was stunning. It became a hub for many of the activities, and we are already working on renting it for a week next summer. Everything is state of the art, first class. The owners went out of their way to ensure that we had everything. Rent this place if you want to make an amazing memory!!!!
