About Aubie Cook Purser

Steve and Aubie live in Concord, NC - and love to explore the Blue Ridge Mountains - The Cedar Post shows Steve's love of wood and passion for building a custom product - The Cedar posts were actually cut off of a family farm !! We hope you hope you enjoy it as much as we have.

Aubie Cook Purser purchased this house in 2010

Why Aubie Cook Purser chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

We love Blowing Rock and the surrounding towns .. the location is what we love and the 100% custom home is our labor of love .. This property is great for entertaining --- the rocking chairs and the outdoor fireplace are a favorite spot! The location is close to restaurants and shopping. There is a private old logging road to access the blue ridge parkway - as well as hiking trails and the Thunder Hill Overlook. Parkway crossing has a common area with pond, stream and picnic table - great for children to enjoy.

What makes this house unique

Many custom features - The Carriage house- studio - can be used for additional sleeping or entertaining. A two car garage w/ breezeway- and lots of parking at the top of the drive. Great views - wonderful outdoor entertaining area w/ grill/dining/fireplace.

Beautiful home in great location

  • 5 of 5

This home is in a beatiful setting in a very quiet neighborhood. Gorgeous views from the front patio and windows in the comfortable sitting room on the second floor. Well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds. Very clean. Use of garage is very nice. Location is perfect. Near blowing rock and Boone and BRP hikes. We will be back.

If you are looking for an exquisite property, well maintained, in the Blowing Rock vicinity, this is the place.

I would especially recommend this for 3 or 4 couples. The overall appearance, the fine wood detail and craftsmanship should appeal to adults. And the patio is fantastic - with wood fireplace and real mountain ambiance. The living room is a little small, but intimate for good conversation, and with the gas fireplace, very, very attractive.

I would highly recommend this home.

Awesome Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Cedar Post this past weekend. A little too windy to enjoy the outdoor fireplace this stay but really enjoyed it in past visits.

Great time snuggled by indoor fireplace and spending time with great friends.

Pictures cannot begin to express the detailed craftsmanship given to this house. Just beautiful.

Hoping to return soon. Thanks for sharing this beautiful home with others.

Also the appetizers were amazing. Thanks C:)

Girl's Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on our girl's trip last week. The weather was perfect for shopping in Blowing Rock, sitting by the outdoor fire with a glass of wine, and catching up with good friends. The house was perfect for our needs. We had lots of room for everyone to stay and spent an enjoyable evening by the indoor fire playing games. I would go back to this house anytime.

Great house for Family Trip

  • 4 of 5

This is our second visit to the home and as with last visit, our family (two children under 5, two adults and grand parents) had a wonderful time. The home presents just as pictured and is well cared for and extremely convenient to Blowing Rock, Boone, Tweetsie and the Blue Ridge Parkway. The kitchen is high end and provides a great area for cooking family meals when combined with the outdoor kitchen and the beds are all comfortable. The carriage house is also a nice addition for extended family to have their own space.
