Luxury/Estate Homes

Luxury homes and estate properties are located throughout the High Country

We are experts in finding some of the most surprising and totally off the beaten path locations as well as in more established club settings or residential neighborhoods.  There are wonderful family compounds with great lodges and guest cottages on acreage tracts, finely crafted club residences,  grand log homes with amazing views, equestrian oriented properties and neighborhood showplaces. 

Many mountain luxury homes feature an abundance of various types of wood, stone fireplaces and stone detail work, natural colors and bark or other rustic accents.  There are beautiful old restored farmhouses on acreage tracts that occasionally come on the market.  There are properties that, while presently used as residential, would lend themselves to corporate retreat use or conversion to bed and breakfast or mountain lodge.

Here are the luxury/estate properties currently on the market in the High Country:

This exquisite mountain property rests atop the eastern continental divide as you enter the village of Blowing Rock. Donated to the Appalachian State University Foundation by the late Mariam Cannon Hayes, proceeds from the sale of this property will serve to benefit the students and programs of Appalachian State University's Mariam Cannon Hayes School of Music. The 10.3-acre residential property has breathtaking long range views and level building sites. A large estate home was built for J.W. Cannon in 1915. Named "Kallantra", or Heavenly View, by Mr. Cannon, it was the Cannon Family Summer Estate until Mrs. Hayes' passing. The home features a full-length sleeping porch across the back with sweeping long range views, beautiful woodwork and stone fireplaces. Adjacent to the home is a carriage house with an upstairs apartment. A second house, known as the Knox house, was built in 1914 and overlooks the gorge and Grandfather Mountain. Although these structures offer substantial renovation potential, they do need repair and are offered as-is. After a century of ownership by one family, the opportunity is now at hand to transform this truly unique property as an estate or development.
