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, a 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 house itself 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.
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 burring stone fireplace in the living room are both great places for gathering family and friends.
In addition to hiking and biking, there are several great golf courses nearby as well as fishing horseback riding, river rafting and many other outdoor adventures. The nearby City of Brevard, home of Brevard College and world famous Brevard Music Center, offers great restaurants, arts and crafts and shopping. There are many summer children’s camps nearby including YMCA Camp Greenville and its a great wedding venue, Pretty Place (Symmes Chapel).
We’re centrally located to conveniently explore the entire Upstate South Carolina/Western North Carolina area. Hendersonville, Asheville and Greenville are all within 40 to 80 minutes away.

My husband and I are high-tech industry retirees who are fortunate enough to be able to spend part of our year in the fantastic Upstate South Carolina/Western North Carolina mountains. We rebuilt this wonderful vacation home in 2004 and are happy to share it with others who love the area as much as we do.
This property has been in our family since it was built in 1939 by my grandmother as a respite from Greenville's summer heat. Previously used only in the warm months, the house has been completely renovated with a gourmet kitchen and a totally new infrastructure including comfortable, year-round central heating and air conditioning.
We were able to perserve the warmth and charm of this mountain get away while still having all the comfort and conveniences of the 21st century!
We are ideally surrounded by state parks in both North and South Carolina which provide many hiking and mountain biking trails with great waterfalls and wilderness vistas. You can escape the feeling of suburbia while still having ready access to shopping and entertainment in nearby Brevard or, a little further away, Asheville NC and Greenville SC.
Or you just walk out the door and hike down the fascinating Jones Gap!
