Introducing a formidable fortress of a home resembling the mythical Dutton Ranch of Yellowstone. Located in arguably the most exclusive and popular golf and lake club in all of North Carolina, this sophisticated mountain home embraces breathtaking mountain views, a rolling pasture, a pond, a fern covered glen, walking trails, a playground, an entertainment field and majestic sunrises and sunsets. The ultimate mountain dream is to live within the secure gates of Mountaintop Golf and Lake Club yet have acres of your own private estate. Offering the rare combination of country club gated security and homestead privacy, this iconic mountain estate is perched on over eight acres of mature landscaping with a three-acre meadow with a helicopter landing site.
The visionary owners hired two firms to collaborate, Moss Creek Designs and Meyer, Greeson, Paullin and Benson, to create a distinctly unique mountain home reminiscent of the Western Lodges in famous national parks such as Yellowstone and Yosemite. The result is a welcoming lodge that thoughtfully blurs the line between the indoor and outdoor living areas. Invisible from the street, your first impression as you ride up the curving drive is of poplar bark shingle siding obtained from one hundred-year-old poplar trees which are extinct today. The native granite stonework outside and inside the home was accomplished by the talented Leyland Hughey. The magnificent craftmanship is displayed not only with the best materials available such as reclaimed lumber from New England, Canada and Pennsylvania, copper accents from an artisan in Oregon and etched glass from an artisan in Wilmington, North Carolina, but also in the attention to detail in every finish of this undeniably legendary home.
Entering the etched glass front door, the great room’s expansive windows allow maximum enjoyment of the Whiteside Mountain view. The open concept floor plan flows from the gourmet kitchen and dining area to the vaulted ceiling great room with the stunning panorama. A six hundred bottle conditioned wine cellar is just off the kitchen for easy access to your collection.
Tucked away from the communal spaces is the home’s spacious primary suite complete with a luxurious spa bathroom with fabulous stonework, a soaking tub, and a fireplace. This bedroom has another large stone fireplace to warm you on cool evenings and a covered porch to retreat for your own unruffled sense of calm.
Taking the stairs to the upper floor, you want to immediately plop down in the family room to watch a movie or a football game. Two additional primary suites flank the family room with ensuite bathrooms and balconies to step out and pay homage to the oldest mountain in North America. A separate apartment above the garage provides independent living with its own kitchenette.
The unparalleled grounds provide active types lots of options for outdoor entertainment. The hiking trail loops the property by descending to the pond below, a footbridge provides entrance to the path leading to the meadow, returning to the fern covered glen and trail back to the playground, zip line and open area for bocci ball, corn hull or many other outdoor games. This area is large enough to build a guest house or party barn.
This home was highlighted in The Wall Street Journal and other publications as well as being featured in garden tours. The unparalleled amenities of Mountaintop Golf and Lake Club including the famed Tom Fazio golf course, the dramatic clubhouse, fitness center, pool, tennis, recreation gym, perpetual kids’ camp, the Lake Club on Lake Glenville with endless water toys and boats can be yours with the eligible membership upon approval.
