I am a artist/college professor who grew up in beauteous Western North Carolina.
balsamSKY was built by my father, and he and his wife lived there full time for over 10 years before his death. The property is loved by my immediate family, my cousins and friends who enjoyed many family events and shindigs on top of Piney Mountain. We continue to use the house for family gatherings and special occasions.
While the 360 degree view from our porch at 4300' is jaw-dropping, the house itself is an amazing work of craftsmanship. The house was built from lumber milled off the property. Fine art and local crafts fill the interior.
BalsamSKY is located on top of Piney Mountain in the village of Balsam, just 1 mile from the Blue Ridge Parkway. The property is conveniently located 7 miles from Waynesville and 10 miles from Sylva. The house features sweeping long range views of the Smokies from the wrap around deck, and there are many options for hiking or mountain biking right from the property.
