The Blue Ridge Mountains are having a moment right now and this incredible mountain retreat overlooking an 18-hole links golf course at The Cliffs at Mountain Park is just 45 minutes from trendy Asheville, NC, and 25 minutes from Greenville, SC, recently named one of “The South’s Most Tasteful Small Towns” by Forbes. “Be prepared to be met with a stunning design and warm welcoming feel,” says Lauren Buckland, broker-in-charge at Cliffs Realty. Walking into the home, visitors encounter world-class architecture and authentic South African décor.
The master suite on the main level has expansive mountain views through floor-to-ceiling windows and off the adjacent deck. A large walk-in dressing room and bathroom make for a full suite. The main living space is open with a two-sided fireplace centrally located. (All four fireplaces in the house can be gas or wood burning.) The kitchen has ample counter space and two large granite islands. But dining isn’t relegated to the kitchen: you can also choose to eat in the breakfast room, dining room, or screened-in terrace with built-in grill—perfect for cooler evenings.
“The outdoor areas are very special,” says Buckland of the 2.5-acre property. An oversized patio and infinity edge pool with underwater speakers are the focal point, with plenty of room for socially distanced entertaining. With a membership from The Cliffs, members have access to all seven golf-centered communities in the Blue Ridge Mountains with nationally acclaimed golf courses, plus, fishing, tennis, hiking, horseback riding, cycling and watersports. Members also enjoy a robust culinary program led by talented chefs and knowledgeable sommeliers.
