Located in one of the most prestigious neighborhoods in Highlands, this gracious custom-built home sits on 2.33 acres with a circular driveway, lovely landscaping, and majestic hardwood trees. Unlike many homes with mountain views this long and wide, this home affords these sights from many rooms as well as the covered and open porches and the stone patios.The stacked stone entry sets the tone as you move through the home's generous inviting floor plan. This is a home perfectly designed for entertaining with a spacious kitchen, stone bar, soaring ceilings, and three stone fireplaces. However, when it is just the two of you, the main floor living has everything you need and there are plenty of spaces for relaxation. Newly added outside living area will be the place where everyone will want to gather as they enjoy the long-range mountain and downtown Highlands views. The spacious master suite with fireplace features "his and hers" baths and with large, separate closets. A private lower level is accessed through the master suite and boasts another fireplace, a private bedroom, and a sitting room with an office that leads to an outside terrace. This magnificent property also features a private guest house above a two-car garage, or guests may have their own privacy upstairs in the convenience of the main house. Oh, and don't overlook the wine cellar that holds 500+ bottles! Quality craftsmanship throughout with no detail spared. Four-car garage. Five bedrooms, five-and-a-half baths. Stone archways and six stone fireplaces. This grand estate is located in the gated community of Ravenel Ridge, just minutes from Main Street in Highlands. Owner is a licensed NC Real Estate Broker.
