Enter a rarified world where natural and man-made beauty achieves the perfect balance. A hand-crafted, nearly 4,000 sq. ft. home down a private road sits majestically on 3.8 lushly forested acres overlooking pastoral and pristine Pretty Pond.

The unique post-and-beam style lodge features a wide-open floor plan on both levels. The home is centered on a graceful Great Room and kitchen, each lending an air of refinement and comfort that flows effortlessly throughout the rest of the home.

The kitchen up to the standards of even the most exacting chef features a gas cook-top stove with pot-filler, handmade rustic cherry cabinets and exhaust hood, a Kohler apron-front farm sink, a convection microwave, a large pantry, and a huge, one-of-a-kind cherry island with ample drawers and built-in shelving to hold all of your favorite cookbooks, that conceals the dishwasher.

A Great Room that truly lives up to its name has 22-foot ceilings with 6 x6 distressed beams secured by wrought-iron accented trusses. Gleaming site-finished wide-plank pine floors reflect the mammoth fieldstone wood-burning fireplace with gas starter. Custom recessed lighting, ceiling fans & a massive moose-antler chandelier help illuminate the elegant ambiance. A soaring wall of windows overlooks the front yard that sweeps down to shimmering Pretty Pond, inviting the splendor of the home s unparalleled natural setting in.

A singular sliding barn door on wrought-iron tracks separates the master-on-main suite from the Great Room. Keep it open and feel a part of the Great Room, or slide it closed to create your own cocoon of comfort. Sixteen foot beamed ceilings give the bedroom a feeling of openness, while the slate-front gas-log fireplace warms the body and the soul on a cool fall or winter evening. The spacious walk-in closet with custom California Closet-style organizers--offers room to suit any clothes-horse. The master bath has a handmade slate and cherry dual-sink vanity and an enormous slate shower with built-in shelving and seating.

A sweet delight of a powder room with a hand-thrown vessel sink, hand made walnut vanity, real antler sconces, and even a hand-crafted commode seat! rounds out the interior of the main level.

Throw open the French doors in the Great Room and step out onto the sprawling deck. Take a glass of iced tea and a good book, pick out your favorite rocking chair, and spend a lazy summer afternoon on the shaded deck of the master bedroom while enjoying the cool mountain breezes and the deer and native wildlife. A deck off the kitchen is outfitted with gas, electricity, and a sink with hot and cold running water, making it the perfect barbeque area!

A five-foot wide staircase leads to the lower level. Library doors at the bottom of the staircase open to the luxurious den. Spacious and comfortable, the den has a stone hearth gas-log fireplace (bringing the number of fireplaces in the house to three!) and wet-bar with mini-fridge and wine cooler. A sliding glass door opens onto a second-level of large covered decks overlooking Pretty Pond.

Two large bedrooms with oversized closets have views of the pond through the plantation-shuttered windows. A king-size bath on the lower level has an extra-large tub and shower enclosure. A laundry room with washer/dryer and laundry sink; utility room with water-softener and filtration system; and a work room complete with a built-in work table and shelving ensure that the home is as practical as it is beautiful.

Not to be outdone, the exterior of the house, wrapped in cedar and Tennessee field stone, is as elegant and functional as the interior. A spacious pole barn is outfitted with electricity and generator, has one side enclosed making it perfect for outside projects and storage.

Lovely, low-maintenance landscaping complete with a Zen-like koi pond with water fall-- blends seamlessly into the natural surroundings.

The property s crown jewel, Pretty Pond, is spring-fed by pure mountain waters and is large enough for kayaking or fishing from the homes own private dock. The pond is privately owned and maintained by a select few whose individual property ownership extends into the pond itself.

This is truly a transcendent property, unrivaled in craftsmanship, comfort and natural beauty.
