The focal point is the dramatic two-story windows overlooking Grandfather Mountain. They pop out the minute you enter. Couch is angled enough to take in that view as well as the fireplace. Soaring stone chimney stops at the cathedral ceiling.The living room coffee table is packed with an old brass instrument collection.Great conversation piece. Did you play in the band?
Spacious u-shaped kitchen and dining room also face the mountains. The small kitchen cart comes in handy when taking items out of the French door refrigerator. You can see the large, screen TV and fireplace from the sink, plus keep an eye on your guests. Door to the left of the fireplace leads to the private deck from the living room. No need to say “Hi” to your neighbors as you will barely see them.
Hightop dining table between the kitchen and living room is the perfect spot for not just meals but makes a good workspace. Seats six with three upholstered chairs and three revolving stools.
The master bedroom is on this floor, too. It opens onto the outside deck. The en-suite bath has two sinks with a wall-to-wall mirror and huge walk-in-closet.This leads to a separate space with a soak tub, toilet, and shower. Lots of sun in late afternoon.

The thin eight-foot-long entry table features many unique items.Some guests say it is like going into an antique shop. Lots to look at.
Being the corner unit on the top two floors makes this property especially desirable.No footsteps from the floor above. Deck is perfect for morning coffee, checking e-mails on the bistro table and listening to birds. Small glider on the deck is a relaxing spot for a nap.
