Mayview perfection—classic mountain retreat lovingly restored and renovated retains all of the charm and quality of the original yet easily meets or exceeds the demands of today’s discerning buyer.
The home features original wood floors, hand hewn beams in great room, three Grandfather Stone fireplaces, and andirons and door hardware made by a descendant of Daniel Boone. Rooms are graciously sized and the great room, dining room, den and library areas all combine to make ample indoor entertaining spaces and open up to the large covered porch and portocochere and attached carport for even more possibilities outdoors.
The master bedroom wing, added in 2001, features the library, large utility room, office with built in cabinetry, exercise room, hobby room, storage closet as well as the master suite complete with his and her closets, and custom cabinetry throughout.
The chef’s kitchen was completed remodeled in 2005. Beautiful wood cabinets, Zodiac countertops, stainless built in appliances, pantry and breakfast area with huge windows overlooking landscaped grounds.
The lower level of the original home is typical of many older homes in that the ceiling height is less than 7 feet so its square footage of 1469SF is not included in overall square footage numbers. There is a large den/playroom that the seller’s grandchildren have most enjoyed with room for a pool table and all kinds of games and features the third stone fireplace, now with gas logs.
There is also a workshop and storage room on this level but the star feature is the good sized wine cellar crafted from the stone foundation walls and very well laid out.
The upstairs offers plenty of room for guests and family with 3 large bedrooms, each with their own bathroom. There is an office located on this floor as well, and this could be converted to additional sleeping space if desired. This level also has a second utility room for the home.
One of the most endearing qualities of this home is the sweet covered front porch which runs the length of the main house and overlooks mature trees and beautiful grounds. With over an acre of space, there’s room to continue the beautiful plantings already there and the entire parcel is walkable—a rare thing indeed in mountain property!
This property also has a 1000 square foot guest cottage in good condition for overflow guests or perhaps a caretaker.
Overall square footage for this home is 6447 SF for the house itself and 1000 SF guest home plus the additional usable space in the lower level of the main house not counted here. There are 3 separate heating and AC (gas pac) systems for the home.
