Description from manager

Nestled on 9+ private acres on Little Pisgah Mountain, retro charm & contemporary style converge at this original Modern Mid-Century “Deck House” that embraces many of the design’s trademark features, including an open floor plan, mahogany trim, hand routed waffle door, gigantic windows, and sliding doors with screens. From the vibrant color palette & abstract expressionist art that is unique to each space within the house to the eccentric light fixtures and high quality craftsmanship, you’ll instantly feel inspired by the innovative & impeccable styling of this inviting mountain oasis.

In the morning, settle in the adirondacks on the upper wraparound deck to watch the vivid sunrise while you sip your coffee and listen to the songs of native birds. On rainy days, listen for the tranquil rushing of nearby mountain streams, and on those occasional windy days, listen for the wind whistling through the rhododendrons. After coffee, wander through the woody mountain terrain on the property’s walking trails that wind around the house and up the mountain before returning to enjoy breakfast at the kitchen bar. Thoughtfully supplied and stocked, take advantage of the waffle maker & Vitamix in the sleek gourmet kitchen to make a stack of waffles and a batch of fresh fruit smoothies for you & your group. Boasting a Dog Cubby with bowls, mat, treats, and toys, your pup can also enjoy their own special supplies in the kitchen while you do. After breakfast, carve out time to work on projects at the desk in the main living room or keep up with your workout routine in the small home gym behind the large cabinet doors in the lower level hallway.

Retro Metro Deck House is located just 20 min. from the quaint towns of Lake Lure & Chimney Rock & 15 min. from Asheville in the quiet community of Fairview dotted with picturesque farmland that’s open to the public. Hickory Nut Gap Farm is best known for its meat supply to the finest farm-to-table restaurants in the AVL area & as a stop along the WNC Cheese Trail, but there are also seasonal events and festivals to enjoy. Another destination along the trail is Looking Glass Creamery. Stop by to sample their homemade cheese & “Carmoolita” caramel paired with a glass of wine. For more farm fun, visit the sustainable Flying Cloud Farm, where you can treat yourself to a vibrant U-pick bouquet of native flowers & a bushel of fresh berries. Once you’ve had your fill of country living, travel into the city to enjoy the shopping, attractions, and art scene that characterize the mountains of WNC.

For area hiking, check out Bearwallow Mountain trail, an easy 1 mile hike that reaches a grassy meadow at its summit and features a nearly 360° view that includes Mt. Mitchell and Mt. Pisgah. You’ll love strolling through the wildflowers & picnicking alongside the grazing cattle who call this mountaintop home. After your hike, reward yourself with a cold beer from Whistlehop Brewing Co. that includes a family & pet-friendly playground with a number of activities (such as mini golf) to enjoy. After that, head over to Turgua Brewing, a unique farmhouse brewery situated beside Cane Creek, to listen to live music and sip on their craft ciders, meads, or ales.

In the evening, return home to read one of the books in the home’s library before going inside to make dinner using the gas grill to be enjoyed at the live edge dining table with panoramic woodland views. After dinner, grab chilled mixers from the beverage fridge & use the tools on the bar cart to create a tasty cocktail to enjoy around one of the wood-burning fireplaces or around the glowing blue fire pit on the deck. Linger outside to stargaze before returning inside to stream your favorite show on one of the smart TVs or pop in one of the many DVDs. Stay up late to play some board games, card games, videogames on the WiiU console, or enjoy a low-key night of solving puzzles and sipping wine.
