Description from manager

Luxurious and exquisite home in Black Mountain's charming Village of Cheshire. "Idle Awhile" at this 3 bedroom, 3 bath home featuring luxury, custom interiors and cathedral ceilings. The owners, an interior designer and a landscape architect, have carefully and thoughtfully designed this home to make you feel at home.

Stay in and enjoy the chef's kitchen with top of the line appliances, cookware, wine cooler and coffee bar. Relax by one of two gas fireplaces or out on the patio by the outdoor fire pit.
