LUXURY LIVING AND PANORAMIC VIEWS ABOUND IN THIS EXCEPTIONAL LOCATION!!

Boone Estate Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10, we cannot accommodate weddings or events!

This spectacular custom-built luxury home in the gated Laurel Ridge community has one of the best views in Watauga County: 50-mile-long 200' mountain views! Middleground, designed perfectly to convey the feeling of rising from the Earth, is a perfect combination of rustic mountain charm with a contemporary edge and state of the art modern convenience.

The house was custom built with major name-brand furnishings and fixtures throughout, including Hickory Chair furniture, Viking brand kitchen appliances, antique Oushak rugs, Bobo and Curry & Company lighting, Arte I'talia fixtures, and many more high-quality touches throughout.

Enter the main level through a solid Alder wood door. The first thing that greets you is the wall of windows overlooking the stunning westward-facing mountain views, spanning from Grandfather Mountain in the south, overlooking Valle Crucis westward, and north to Tennessee and Virginia. Sunsets from this vantage point are simply breathtaking. The living area is furnished with a set of OLY Studio leather furniture and a coffee table made of 17th Century reclaimed wood from France, set over an antique Oushka rug. This is arranged around a natural stone gas fireplace stretching to the ceiling, and a 42' HDTV hidden away in its own cabinet. Original art hangs throughout the main level, including the impressive piece from which the home derives its name. There is also a half bath on this level, featuring a sink custom designed by the owner cut out of natural slate stone with a copper spout and standing on a pedestal made from a locally felled tree.

The chefs in your group will love preparing delicious meals in the gourmet kitchen. Stainless steel professional-grade Viking appliances and every gadget you may need are sure to make every kitchen operation simple. Not only functional, the kitchen is also beautiful with its granite counters, onyx tiled backsplash, and slate floors. The whole group can gather around the dining table, designed by Woodlands, and there is room for three more at the counter in padded chairs. There's even room for the four-legged family members in the built in doggie dorm under the kitchen counter.

The sumptuous master suite occupies the entire southern wing of the main floor. Decorated with a Provincial French theme, it features a chandelier by Bobo, furniture by local North Carolina company Hickory Chair, including a King bed and a plush sitting area arranged around a gas log fireplace and stocked built-in library. Beyond the sitting area, French doors lead to the deck and the view. The dreamy spa-like master bath, private to the King suite, promotes tranquility and relaxation with a hint of romance from the Jacuzzi tub and the two-person glassed in shower. The two vanities in this bath are custom made of travertine and limestone, and feature vessel-style sinks made of petrified zebra wood. There is a TV mounted over the Jacuzzi, perfect for relaxing, and there is a spacious closet as well.

There is another master suite on this level at the north wing of the home. This room is lavishly decorated with a Moroccan bazaar theme, with a canopied Queen bed, rich purple walls, unique wall hangings, and a private bath with a hammered stainless steel sink and a shower.

Descend the stairs to the lower level of the home. With 9 foot ceilings throughout, this level feels nearly as spacious as the upper level. The second living area, affectionately referred to as the man cave, is perfect for family gatherings with its leather-and-deerhide furniture, wall of windows overlooking the views, gas fireplace, 61' LCD TV, kitchenette with a wet bar, and a supply of family games. French glass doors lead to the expansive lower level deck, as well.

There are two bedrooms on this level, one at each end of the house. One room has a Queen bed, and the other end of the home has a room with two full beds. Each bedroom has a full bath nearby, with a shower and unique vessel-style sink basins. Between the two bedrooms, beside the kitchenette, is a unique triangular wine cellar room with antique iron doors. Beyond the bedroom with the full beds is a small room, ideal for those seeking a space to get away and do some office work, with a daybed and a desk and doors to the lower level deck. Also on this level is a large two-car heated garage, accessed from a flight of stairs off the lower living area.

Step outside and enjoy the crisp mountain air. At an elevation of 3600 feet above sea level, and with the house built into the side of the mountain, the breeze here is always fresh and bracing. The decks are connected to each other by a full flight of stairs, and can be accessed from the ground by the garage as well. Enjoy a meal al fresco on the unique handmade furniture fashioned from the wood of the Gembol tree native to Southeast Asia. Grill up a feast on the gas grill, tied into the house supply, so you will never have to worry about running dry, and enjoy the spectacular nightly show as the sun sinks behind the distant mountains and paints the sky in vivid tones.

You may not ever want to leave this haven of peace, but if you do, you'll be pleased to learn that despite its prestigious mountaintop location, it is located just 10 minutes outside of Boone in the quiet gated community of Laurel Ridge, near the Willow Creek Golf Course. Blowing Rock and Banner Elk are both just 20 minutes away, and the home is central to all the area's ski and tubing resorts, as well as other great High Country attractions such as ziplining, rafting, hiking, and more. Fabulous shopping and five-star dining is just moments away as well.

Come experience the contemporary mountain appeal of the beautiful Middleground today!

Amenities: Air conditioning, pet friendly (to well trained dogs), gas grill, internet, WiFi, three gas fireplaces, westward 200 degree mountain view, gated community, whole house a/v system, paved parking, heated two car garage, 2 wrap around decks.

Maximum occupancy: 10

Guestbook comments from the manager
his is the most stunning home I have ever stayed in! Not one detail was overlooked! The owners have opened up their home that they obviously put tons of thought & love into. The views are gorgeous and it's close to lots of activities & great restaurants & shopping- if so desired. We stayed home mostly and enjoyed the amenities, the chef's kitchen and very tasteful and very comfortable furnishings. HIGHLY recommend this fabulous home!!!

If you want something relaxing this is the place to go. If you love to cook well just look at the kitchen! Imagine what meals you can make and enjoy with you love ones. Also, enjoy you dinner or cocktails on the deck with the amazing view of the mountains and sunset simmering down. For those earlier risers enjoy a cup of joe or tea and watch how the sky can turn with the gleaming sun. In fall the colors of the trees changing. If you like to walk by yourself, with you dog, or you love those hill will be sure to give you a good work out. Best part about this place is you don't have to leave. If you would like to get out there is so much adventure in the mountains. Along with a couple places to eat and have a good time. My personal favorite is Murphys. This owners are the most wonderful people to open their home to others knowing how much joy it brings them and to share it with you. One place you must stay at least once in your life. Enjoy!

Luxurious Mountain Home with Breathtaking Views

  • 5 of 5
This home is incredible in every way. From the moment you open the door you feel the luxury. The long range mountain views are simply breathtaking. Sunsets amazing. The homeowners thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. Mattresses are high quality along with all the bed linens and towels. The house would be great for a large family but was comfortable for just two of us. It is nice that we could bring our dog. We look forward to staying here again soon.
