This beautiful mountain home is nestled high in the Blue Ridge Mountains surrounded by two gentle streams on 26 private, wooded acres. It is adjacent to Jones Gap and Caesar's Head State Parks, part of the 10,000-acre protected environment for many rare and endangered plant and animal species known as the Mountain Bridge Wilderness. Hiking and mountain biking trails abound here and in the nearby DuPont State Forest and Pisgah National Forest.

The space

The house has the warmth and charm of gentler times when families from Greenville came to the mountains to escape summer’s heat and humidity. It has since been thoroughly reconstructed with the installation of a gourmet kitchen, totally new infrastructure including new bathrooms, central heating and air conditioning. We call it “Pentimento” because the charm of the old subtly shines through the new.

Guest access

There is a master suite with a king-sized bed and adjacent full bath on the first floor. Upstairs, a second master suite has a king-sized bed, a private full bath and walk-in closet. Two more bedrooms, one with a queen-sized bed and the other with two double beds, share a third full bath.

The house comfortably sleeps three or four couples, or two couples plus several single adults or young children. The dining area table seats a maximum of eight people.

The wrap-around porch and wood burning stone fireplace in the living room are both great places for gathering family and friends.

Interaction with guests

Although we're unable to meet you in person, our good friend and neighbor, Linda, will be available to help you with the house and area information.

We three families spent a great long weekend at this lovely house. Everything is so thoughtfully and perfectly designed and maintained. Nice bedrooms with private bathrooms fit every families. Open porch with forest view is a casual place for reading and chatting. We love the kitchen the best where we have almost everything we need to prepare us wonderful holiday meals. The house is located close to so may parks, trails and waterfalls that we enjoyed sightseeing everyday. We wish that we could stay a couple more days longer but we do know that we will come back again.

My husband, Tom, and I are both retired from the Silicon Valley high tech industry. We live with Cooper, our 2-year old Sheltie, who happily rules our lives. We enjoy traveling, entertaining, and walking in the hills of Northern California. Cooper enjoys all of that plus chasing balls on the Santa Cruz beaches.

We also have a vacation rental property in South Carolina, where I was born, so we definitely understand what it means to be the perfect guest!
