All of the interior walls of this mountain home are board & batten, tongue and groove or large log walls, some of which are still visible from the original log cabin the house was built around. The large plank wood floors are repurposed from a 125 year old barn, the chestnut beams run throughout the rafters. The poplar bark siding is a natural choice for creating a unique rustic look. This siding blends in with the mountainous look and virtually eliminates maintenance and upkeep and is nature's perfect protection against environment forces. This "Green" building material will last 70+ years. Tree bark was first used by Native Americans in the Appalachian Mountains and offers the benefits of using indigenous materials while adding rustic appeal.
The elevation gives you cool, refreshing breezes, yet has surprisingly easy access to a private 6+ acre property. This is a special place built beyond standard building codes translating into rare beauty, and with the added bonus of lower energy bills. This home is designed to be true to it's Southern roots. It is so evident from the moment you enter the front foyer through the handmade, oversized front door crafted from antique oak and chestnut. Then there are large chestnut beams running throughout the rafters of the various ceilings of various heights. The sense of a real mountain getaway is felt immediately. The unique oversized "cottage/lodge" exterior, and interior, is enhanced by three massive rock fireplaces; one in the Living Room, one in the Kitchen/Keeping Room, and on on the Screened-In Porch. The floors throughout the house are reclaimed wood , except for 3 of the 4.5 Bathrooms and Laundry Room which are tile. The Kitchen is a cooks' dream; with counters of granite, center granite island, double sink, a Dacor six-burner cooktop, two Dacor convection wall ovens, two dishwashers including a Fisher & Paykel drawer model, a stainless pellet ice maker, a French-Door refrigerator with ice maker and a microwave. The Dining Room is open to the Kitchen and Keeping Room with access to the Screened Porch while offering panoramic views of Tuckaleechee Cove and the Smokies with it's wall of windows.

Each of the bedrooms is spacious, uniquely designed, and features an en-suite bath. Although a three bedroom septic is installed, the owners are making effective use of a 4th bedroom on the lower level that can easily be converted to a media room, game room, etc.
