OUR MOUNTAIN HOUSE: AMAZING LONG RANGE VIEWS. TROUT STREAMS, BIKING AND HIKING.

Brevard House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 1 Sleeping Loft, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Our Mountain House is our primary residence but we will be happy to pack up and move out for the duration of your stay.

From the porch you can see for 20 miles to the West and North – amazing mountain views, morning mist rising from the river valleys below, the sunrise painting light and shadow on 9 ridges to the West, amazing sunsets – and continuous breeze.

This house is our home but we would like to turn it over to you to enjoy. We have rented it from time to time since 2009 while we camped from Central Mexico to the Canadian Rockies and the Maritimes and back, and we are doing it again on a year round basis until further notice.

We designed and built the house as a bright, airy and open place to enjoy the magical site. It is facing SW on the NW end of a finger ridge at elevation 3200’ overlooking the valley of the headwaters of the East Fork French Broad River in a quiet secluded 12.5 acre setting with paved roads right to the end of our easy driveway.

The neighborhood is surrounded by scores of thousands of acres of protected lands - lands in strong private hands or public lands such as Caesar’s Head State Park, Jones Gap State Park, duPont State Forest, Pisgah National Forest, and Gorges State Park – each only a short drive, - as is the Blue Ridge Parkway. The view from our porch is Headwaters State Forest. Our neighborhood also includes miles of hiking and mountain biking trails and fly fishing on the East Fork French Broad.

The house features:

o More than 3000 sq ft of living area on three levels.

o More than 1500 sq ft of porch and patio on two levels.

o A cooking and view deck outside the kitchen door; with gas grill and chiminea.

o A fenced in side yard.

o Many large windows and tall glass doors for maximum light and air.

o The air conditioner is usually not needed.

o There is a well tended flower and kitchen garden with herbs and seasonal vegetables with a gardener provided. Cleaning service is provided once a week.

o Pets will be considered.

The main floor kitchen, great room (open to upper level roof line ceiling), and master bedroom all open to a wrap around 12 foot deep 750 sq. ft. porch for dining, comfortable seating and fair weather sleeping – ideal for families and entertaining. The large master suite includes a tile shower, double sinks, and walk in closet. The kitchen is fitted with black honed granite counter tops, farm-house (fire clay apron) sink, stainless steel appliances, gas cook top, electric convection oven, electric drawer oven, and walk-in pantry. The entry hall incorporates a coat closet and ½ bath powder room. The dining table seats 8 with additional seating at kitchen snack bar and on the porch.

The lower level includes family room with TV and game table, and a bedroom with twin beds each open to 750 sq. ft. flagstone terrace; and a full bath. The laundry room includes washer, dryer and utility sink.

The top level consists of one queen bedroom, one twin bedroom, and a full bath each opening to a large loft library/sitting area with clerestory windows and the great room below, and including a day bed.

Keywords: Our Mountain House is very near duPont State Forest (film location for 'The Hunger Games' and 'Last of the Mohicans') near Brevard, Smoky Mountains, North Carolina, USA (Big Hill Rd is 3.5 Mi from US 276 on E Fork Rd).

About Tom Traywick

Tanne and I were born and raised in the SC low country. Escaping the summer heat by traveling to the mountains of WNC was something we always enjoyed. We moved to this area when Tanne retired after 28 years as a teacher. I am still working as a funding compliance analyst for public school districts.

Tom Traywick purchased this house in 2006

What makes this house unique

We have been coming to this area almost our entire lives (summer camp, family vacations, visits to relatives) and have always thought this country was magical. Since we have located here full time we have been amazed by the atmosphere of friendship among the locals and outlanders.
