Sotheby's International Realty
Head for the hills in this sprawling, 6,490-square-foot, red cedar log home, set high in the mountains of North Carolina. Cathedral ceilings, knotted wood details, a two-story, wood-burning rock fireplace and an authentic Elk antler chandelier add the rustic charm one might expect to find in Banner Elk. A two-story, heated slate foyer, gourmet stainless steel kitchen with custom cabinetry, hammered copper soaking tubs and an 8-person sauna room bring the luxury to this seven-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bath mini-estate. Ready to expand—the property boasts views of four states, after all—a detached garage may easily convert into a guesthouse.
