Part I
The Home and Property

 

The right home, at the right place and in the right location!  Folks come to these mountains searching for gems, and now is your chance to stake a claim to your own strike in this beautiful and rare, virtually maintenance free, craftsman style home of native stone. 

Home for the weekends or for a lifetime!  FINE LIVING between Spruce Pine and Burnsville, in one of the absolute best communities one can locate to in this area.  Your home is just off US Hwy. 19-E in a COVETED place with buffer protection—built with an eye to simple, comfortable mountain elegance.  Rock in a chair under your covered front porch and wave to the neighbors as they drive by on your paved state maintained residential community road.

Native stone defines the exterior & beckons a nod to our land of gemstones and minerals. The rock is mica accented black tourmaline that glitters as the sunlight bursts onto the home throughout the day, and the green mica mixed with streaks of white quartz leave one in a since of awe for the ancientness of the monoliths from which the components of this home were carved. 

This four-bedroom, two-bath home with upscale flourishes presents a cozy life for your family and guests in this SAFE sought after community.  The vast views of the mountains from your front porch and as you go to and from the property remind you that you have finally made it to paradise. 

 

THE VALUE IS UNSURPASSED at $189 per square foot of finished living space; $63 per square feet unfinished living space.  Natural gas feeds your warm living room fireplace, and affords your culinary desires on the gas range while also fueling a central gas heating & air system with dual units— one for each floor ensuring year-round comfort.  

 

The comfortable and convenient kitchen features a serving window to a formal, yet open, dining room.  The living room and dining room flow together for easy interactions with family and guest entertainment.  

A breakfast room framed for morning sunrises allows you to collect your early thoughts— perfect contentment in a place built for real living.

The master suite, occupying the entirety of the upper level (private from the rest of the home), features a full bath and office area.  

 

The full basement, like the rest of the home, is constructed of stone, and remains dry.  This area could be finished out as heated and contiguous square footage.  This is where the laundry is located, but there is an area plumbed and ready for a stackable washer/dryer unit on the main level as well.  Attached to the basement is a gardening prep room/mud room that could serve a multitude of uses.  On the outside there is an electric wired 200 square foot shed/workshop. 

 

Entertainment flows to the outside with a professionally landscaped custom fire-pit/gathering area.  Perfect for FAMILY, VACATION, or RETIREMENT.  Add a hot tube to this area and have the perfect lucrative vacation rental that would stay in high demand.  

 

High-speed fiber internet is run directly to the home. 

 

NO RESTRICTIONS AND NO HOA! 

 

Four minutes to downtown shopping, dinning and entertainment.  Five minutes to the Blue Ridge Regional Hospital, Twelve minutes to Burnsville, 20 minutes to Marion, Lake James and I-40, forty minutes to Asheville, and two hours from Charlotte.

 

Five minutes to the Blue Ridge Parkway.  Twenty minutes to the Appalachian Trail. 

 

THINK family, retirement, vacation— a home of legacy & entertainment. 

 

Now is your time to become a part of the story of these mountains. 

 

Part II— The Community

Estatoe and Hoot Owl Road

 

When looking at any small town throughout the South, on always fins that there are certain communities that are the older established areas based on local industry, or the hottest selling area based on school systems, or the most affordable residential places based on income.  This community checks all the boxes.   

 

The home is located just four miles outside of Spruce Pine in a place called Estatoe.  A historic past of fierce mountain independence, farming and mining.  An iconic anchor of the community is the historic Liberty Hill Church, of which this home once served as the parsonage. 

 

Just three miles from the home is the world famous Penland School of Crafts— one of the nation’s premier and prestigious schools of art with a diverse student body from all over the world, with many famous and talented people attending at various times.  

 

Part III— The Town
Spruce Pine, NC

 Just four miles from your home is the town of Spruce Pine, which is the largest “small town” between Asheville, NC and Boone, NC with a burgeoning economy and a strong index for growth.  It is a place for artists to pour out their art and soul with an inspiration that only these ancient mountains can provide.  Spruce Pine began life as a train town, but the whole area had already established itself as a gem stone and mining center, as well as a timber resource many years before. 

Major employers for the area, outside of retail and hospitality include Bombardier Motor Corp. of America (makers of Can-Am & SeeDo), along with Buck Stove Corporation, Sibelco North America, and the Quartz Corp. USA— all having established their companies and livelihood here amongst all those so fortunate to call this place home, and providing good incomes to nearly 4,000 individuals.  In addition, within less that 10 miles, another 4,000+ people are employed at Baxter’s Healthcare and at two major state correctional facilities located just across the county line. 

Opening next summer, the YMCA will provide a brand new wellness center featuring top-of-the-line cardio equipment, weight machines, free weights, and an indoor track, as well as an aquatic center featuring pool exercise and  play for all ages of children an adults.  This facility will also have an indoor athletic center. 

Just five miles from this home is the Blue Ridge Regional Hospital & Medical Campus, in addition to top tier medical services, the campus hosts the East Carolina University School of Dentistry along with other medical facilities and offices, not only providing the region’s main healthcare, but also serving as another major employment center for the area. 

In addition to the natural beauty being located just off the Blue Ridge Parkway and a hop-skip and jump across the county from the Appalachian Trail, the town has a burgeoning and vibrant dining and entertainment scene.  

Breathtaking views of the most beautiful place on earth bring tourism and inspire coveted retirement havens; and trains, mines, timber, and industry together have made up the economic wealth of this entire region.

 Spruce Pine, NC really is in the center of it all here in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina and Eastern Tennessee.  

Here we have a distinct 4 seasons, without the extremes.   We have a fairly mild climate except on those rare winter days when the altitude gets the better of our latitude, but for the most part, you will have year round comfort assurance.

The areas surrounding Spruce Pine offer breathtaking views and pristine waters, centered in the highest peaks of the mountains of North Carolina.  We are a safe place to adventure and live.  With our low taxes, low crime rate, emphasis on freedom, and improving infrastructure we are a place to grow and have opportunity.

People move here to get away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the world.  Our realm is safe, clean, and still retains a degree of the ancient wild.  People desire our beautiful mountain views, and clear pristine waters.  Such natural capital as exists here keeps our market strong even during economic downturns.
