Montreat retreat, one of the most pristine mountain properties on the Asheville area real estate market, abuts a preserved wilderness property bordered by streams and waterfalls. This impeccable log home, built in 1994, sits on a private 3 acre lot. In 1999, the home site became the first Montreat home designated a National Wildlife Federation Backyard Wildlife Habitat site. The rock walls featured throughout the property as well as the native plant landscaping around the home truly makes this a private mountain paradise.
Presently used as a five bedroom home, the home has a lower level that can be used as a self-contained apartment. The first level features a master suite and an open floor plan with large gathering rooms and a deck.
With the intercom/alarm systems and top of the line appliances, this uniquely built, half-log-construction home offers mountain simplicity with modern amenities on a gently sloping site.
In addition to the visible external eco-friendly elements, this home also has a geothermal heating/cooling system that utilizes the property's well water. In addition, the log-structure-enclosed generator provides power to selected appliances including the gas fireplace heater, ensuring that residents remain safe and secure in the event of a power loss.
