Description from manager

The Matney Ridge Estate in Banner Elk! This spectacular 70+ acre gated property, topping out at over 4,000 ft. of elevation, is the ultimate in North Carolina High Country luxury, with all of the privacy and natural beauty you could ask for. 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. Call today to secure your family's ultimate mountain vacation and experience this magical property for yourself!

The Matney Ridge Estate is located only minutes away from the charming town of Banner Elk.  Featuring a wide variety of noted gourmet restaurants and excellent specialty and upscale boutiques, Banner Elk is a destination all its own. Here each season brings with it something spectacular, from our cool air and outdoor activities in the summer, to our incredible fall foliage, to great skiing during the winter. Banner Elk is also home to Lees-McRae College and its wonderful summer theater program, as well as numerous athletic events for spectators throughout the year.

In addition, the nearby towns of Blowing Rock, Valle Crucis, Grandfather Mountain and Boone, home to Appalachian State University, add to the unique flavor and sophisticated country charm of the area. In the High Country of North Carolina, you'll find a mountain playground like no other. Call today to secure this property for your next Blue Ridge Mountain vacation!
