This home radiates the charm and grandeur of a bygone era…built 85 years ago for the manager of the American Enka Manufacturing Company, Biltmore Lake House has been updated to reflect the comforts of current day, while keeping the charm of yesteryear.
This legendary home sits high on a corner lot with a picket fence, beautiful mature trees, and a commanding view of Biltmore Lake. Enter into a front foyer with 10 foot ceiling, carved wood staircase, cozy living room to your right with wood burning fireplace, and large elegant dining room to your left, both with large picture windows looking out on to the lake. The large kitchen, off the dining room and toward the back of the home, has beautiful granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, and for you cook’s, a gas stove! The sitting room, just off the kitchen, allows additional space to curl up with a good book, gather with a small group to catch up, or watch TV. This home has been professionally decorated, with warm tones, and comfortable furnishings…you may not want to leave!
All of the bedrooms are on the second level, with a covered porch off the master and guest king bedrooms, allowing you to further take in the view. The new-shared bath has been completely renovated with new fixtures and glass enclosed tile shower.
You are just minutes from some of the best mountain, or leisure, biking around, white water rafting, rock climbing, hiking, canoeing, golf, Segway tour, a ride on America's favorite scenic byway, the Blue Ridge Parkway, or just kick back beside the built-in pool!
After a day of exploring and playing, come home to Biltmore Lake House, pull up a rocking chair on the front porch, or lay on the lawn, watch the sunset and the night sky fill with stars, as the fire flies come out to dance.
