The main home and newly built guest quarters together offer 7,330 heated square feet and sit up on a plateau looking out onto spectacular mountain views. As you drive through the private gated entry way, you'll pass under a canopy of hardwoods opening into a tranquil pasture and orchard, with a pond and brisk mountain stream running the width of the property and under a picturesque stone lined bridge. Pass by the historic mid-1800's cabin playhouse and follow the split rail fence as the driveway winds through the forest.

The main home is 6,439 heated square feet and offers 3 master suites, plus a downstairs guest bedroom and a large kids bunk room. Just walking into the foyer, you are immediately struck by the Tennessee flagstone flooring with unique wood inlay. The home was constructed of exquisite hand-hewn white pine throughout, with rugged hardwood flooring and stacked stone fireplace in the great room. The over-sized kitchen and dining area features a spacious counter and bar seating, with a gas range, double stacked wall ovens, Sub-Zero refrigerator and a butler's pantry. Step out to the covered and screened porch and find another stacked stone, wood-burning fireplace for cozying up on those cool summer nights. Downstairs the home offers a billiards and game room and casual den for relaxing and watching a game or movie night.

The property also features a detached guest quarters with 2 full upstairs suites, perfect for a large family or multiple families renting the estate together. Guests are encouraged to hike the manicured trails that cut through the forest surrounding the property. There is even a storybook tree house hidden in the woods for the kids.

"Wow! Matney Ridge is an uniquely and beautifully constructed home on a gorgeous, secluded piece of property. It is very well appointed with comfortable and inviting furnishings and the kitchen is very well supplied with ample silverware, plates, and cooking supplies for a large crowd (the multiple large skillets were greatly appreciated!). We enjoyed the very large deck with lots of seating, pool table, hot tub, and exploring the grounds. There is plenty of room for everyone to spread out and our kids have already asked if we're going back next year!"

"My goal is to adequately express how amazing this property is. My family (my parents plus 3 sisters with our families) stayed for our annual vacation. Kids range from 2-15 and all loved it. There was plenty of space at the house and property to feel like we all had our own space. We’ve rented houses for 15 years and all agreed this was our favorite. The pictures don’t do it justice. It was immaculate and fancy yet comfortable. We could tell the owners care well for the property and take pride in their home. The beds and bedding were very comfortable. The furniture was quality and not typical rental junk. The kitchen had everything we needed. The management company was available and helpful. They welcomed us when we arrived to show us around the house. And the acreage. Wow. It was my little slice of heaven. The sunrise view off the back porch was worth waking up for. The whole property was beautiful and worth exploring. For any of you instacart users, I had Publix delivered shortly after we arrived which was awesome. Location was great too"

"This was our third winter trip to Banner Elk. This secluded property was amazing. It has amazing views, a fantastic layout for multiple families, hiking, rope swings next to a creek, not to mention a completely stocked kitchen! Everything you could need for a fantastic get away from it all. I hope to be able to return to this beautiful property in the near future. Our children range from 1 to 8 and they all cried when we had to leave. You can explore the grounds for hours. Again, I cannot say enough great things about this property. Thank you for sharing it."
