Description

You're sure to love everything about this beautiful mountaintop home with panoramic mountain views visible from nearly every room in the house.

The open concept great room on the main level has a wall of windows overlooking the view, with comfortable leather furniture arranged around a stone woodburning fireplace and a large Smart HDTV. One corner holds a dining table with two benches on either side, and the opposite corner has a full kitchen with granite counters and stainless steel appliances. Off the great room is a half bath with a laundry closet.

The master suite on the main floor has a King bed, HDTV, and a private full bathroom with double granite vanities and a spacious walk-in shower. The main level deck has a picnic table, gas grill, as well as Adirondack chairs to enjoy the breathtaking views.

Downstairs is a second living area with a pool table, seating area around another large TV to enjoy your favorite shows while playing a game, a full bath with combination tub & shower, and two more bedrooms each with a King bed and a TV. The lower deck has a four-person hot tub with fountain waterfalls and LED lights as well as more seating to take in the views.

Perfectly located atop Appalachian Ski Mountain, close to both Boone and Blowing Rock and every High Country attraction, Aussie's Den is sure to become your new home away from home!

In early Summer 2015, we visited the North Carolina High Country and fell in love with the view this lot offered. Our sweet elderly dog Aussie was with us, and sadly this was to be her last trip to the mountains. Aussie crossed the Rainbow Bridge later that fall. We've named our home after Aussie and we hope that everyone who vacations here will experience Aussie's sense of excitement, wonder, adventure, and especially love.

The house is very well taken care of and we had everything we needed! We were traveling for work and mixed it with some skiing which was a perfect location! I will say it does need to be noted in description in case of snow and ice, driveway is not accessible even with four wheel drive! We had to park at bottom and walk up to house several days! Other than that this house is amazing!"

"Great, comfortable stay! There were 6 of us (3 couples). Each bed was a King size and very comfortable. The kitchen/living room are an open floor plan style with windows & and a porch that leads to big Mountain Views. Downtown Blowing Rock is a 10 minute drive with lots of shops and food options. For awareness only: We did not have bad weather while we were there, but definitely ensure you take a AWD or 4WD vehicle if the weather is calling for snow or sleet. The drive way is steep like many houses in the high country so be prepared!"

"Spectacular Views! We wanted a home that fit our family needs and it was everything and then some. The home is on the top of the mountain with breath taking views and we felt at home as soon as we entered. Kitchen has everything you could ask for. Every bedroom had a king size bed and very spacious rooms. The pool table downstairs gave us plenty of entertainment. We changed our reservation to add another night due to SNOW coming in. Rental company use very accommodating. You definitely will need four-wheel drive if there is ice or snow. The driveway is steep but there is another spot to park a car at the bottom of driveway. Definitely will be back next year!"
