This could be the “home for the holidays” home for you!  Imagine celebrating the upcoming holidays with with the glow of a wood burning fireplace where you dine with family, friends.

It might be the home, it might be the creek, it might be both that awe you!  Custom designed and built by general contractor owner this white pine log home has plenty of features to impress. Not least of which is the bold, Roaring Fork Creek behind the home… just step off the porch and it’s several steps away, open windows and hear it without leaving the inside of this home.

Red oak hardwood flooring, knotty pine tongue and groove ceiling (walls in bonus room) provide the rustic, yet not an “old” feeling, desired in a mountain home. This is a mountain home, not just a home in the mountains!  Wood burning fireplace in the kitchen enhances your experience whether preparing meals or dining in the eat-in area.  Gas cooktop on center island which also has a prep sink, and work area. Two wall ovens are electric; one is a convection oven.  Track lighting, recessed lights, and skylight for natural light. It’s not a window over the kitchen sink but has the same desired effect being a pass through opening to view the woods…not a wall! A “Mr. Ed” (Dutch) door leads you to the kitchen from the laundry/mud room.

Living room is cozy with the wood stove, french door open to porch, recessed lighting.  A bonus room overlooks the creek and has various potential uses:  den, office, rec room. You’ll appreciate the abundance of windows and skylight allowing natural light, and view of creek surrounded with lots of rhododendron trees in bloom.

Master bedroom also has a skylight, recessed lighting, and beautiful on-suite bathroom.  Master bathroom offers another place to relax- the jetted tub!  Separate shower with seat, handheld showerhead, glass block tiles separate it from the tub.  Heated tile floor! Rustic vanity and cabinetry… I think this is a room to admire!

A unique feature of this home is the Murphy beds in the third bedroom.  A well planned idea to offer space saving when they’re not in use.

Laundry/mud room has ample storage space, washer, dryer, chest style freezer.

Front porch has a section that is screened, the rest is open. It overlooks the low maintenance front yard where you may enjoy a seasonal mountain view.  Harvest blueberries and raspberries, while you’re at it!

Good access from a paved state maintained road, and concrete driveway. Additional storage available in storage shed or maybe use as a workshop.

Unrestricted land, no H.O.A. or dues associated with them!
