A sweeping view, near-total privacy, a stream crossing your driveway and leading to a pond, and a spectacularly luxurious 5000 square-foot home near historic Banner Elk is the perfect recipe for peace and relaxation! You'll find all that and more at the beautiful Stoneledge Manor.
As you enter the home, the first thing that arrests your attention is the enormous great room. Its focal point is the three-sided stone hearth with a gas log fireplace and nooks on either side for books, movies, and entertainment equipment. Mounted over this fireplace is a 65" 4K HDTV with Bose surround sound. Arranged around the fireplace are couches and easy chairs, as well as a gaming table tucked in the corner.
The other half of the great room is the expansive kitchen. It features an enormous tiled island for eating as well as preparation and service, with a vegetable sink on one side, as well as stainless steel Bosch and Jenn-Air appliances including two ovens, a four-burner gas range with grill on the side, and a double basin sink. The kitchen is well equipped with the items you'd need for a holiday meal for the whole family or for a quick snack for the kids in the group.
Off the kitchen, accessed through two arched entryways, is the formal dining room. Featuring a long table that seats 10 comfortably, this room has lovely views of the mountains across the valley. There is also a half bath near the kitchen, with an antique porcelain basin with hand-painted flowers on it.
The huge master suite occupies the east wing of the home. This room has a King bed, a sitting area around an HDTV, a desk for those who have to bring some work along, access to the deck, and a walkin closet. The private bath has a dual-head shower, a pair of marble topped vanities with their own mirrors plus a lighted swing-out makeup mirror, and a two-person Jacuzzi tub.
Upstairs are two bedroom suites. The one to the left of the stairs has a Queen bed and a bath with a tub/shower and a decorative antique stained glass window. The suite to the right of the stairs has a King bed and a sleeper sofa, triangular alcoves perfect for children to play in, and a private bath with a tub/shower.
Downstairs is the entertainment level of the home. The ceilings throughout the lowest level are all 15' high. Halfway down the stairs from the main level is a closet chock full of board games, ideal for the whole group to enjoy. All the way down is a brand new pool table, waiting for a friendly competition to strike up. There is another large TV down here, a 60" 3D set with surround sound and six pairs of 3D glasses, as well as a Wii console and a selection of games, plus three Wiimotes. A large couch with loungers on either end sits in front of the TV, waiting for the whole gang to pile up and watch a favorite flick. A reversible checkers/backgammon table is to the side of the room as well, as well as access to the double garage, and there is a door to the stone patio on the other side.
The bedroom on this level is a Queen bedroom. The best morning views in the house can be seen from this room- simply open the blinds and enjoy the morning sunrise playing over the mountains. The bathroom, accessed from the game room, has a shower and pedestal sink, as well as a dresser.
The main level of the home has a wide deck, wrapping around 3 sides of the home. Sit on the deck and enjoy the serenity of your surroundings while admiring the view. Walk down to the pond in front of the house, hike in the 5 acres behind the house, and roast marshmallows at the firepit by the stream. Dogs will love roaming around the property as well.
With the serene wooded surroundings, it's hard to believe that you're just 5 minutes from downtown Banner Elk and 10 minutes to Sugar Mountain. Shopping and dining are a short drive away, with Boone about 35 minutes away. The Town of Banner Elk offers great outdoor activities all year long, as well as cultural programs put on at Lees-McRae College. You're sure to love staying again and again at the beautiful Stoneledge Manor!
