NEW!!  

No Pet/Animals, No Exceptions

Welcome to Chateau Laurel, a palatial retreat on three lush acres of private land. If you are looking for that wow factor, here it lives!! This luxurious log home offers nearly 5,000 square feet of living space, including three bedrooms and five baths.  Surrounded by splendid mountain views, this is the ideal spot to unpack your bags and immerse in nature and nurture!

First impression: Stately best describes all that you’ll behold upon approach. The long, gently winding driveway, flanked by mature landscaping, carries you to an expansive and luxurious-looking parking area covered in brick pavers…Wow! Where’s the Rolls? An impressive wide-oak door opens into the slate-tiled foyer with a handy coat closet. A large living room boasts floor-to-ceiling windows with electronic blinds, a gorgeous stone fireplace, plenty of seating, and very tasteful furnishings.

From here, a door leads to a massive deck with an eating area that overlooks acres of gardens bearing a variety of nut and fruit trees. Enjoy strolling among the apple trees, herbs, and at least 15 blueberry bushes, providing an additional layer of lush focus to the mountains beyond. There also are grapes, black raspberries, blackberries, mint, rosemary, and zinnias. You’re welcome to snip and sample from the bounty. Add to this the pond, and the grounds are ideal for seated or walking meditation and rejuvenation. The outdoor space here is tremendously restorative, AND there’s a potting shed for gardening enthusiasts who might want to procure and plant some local finds while exploring the area’s farms and nurseries.

Back inside, elegance and comfort share equal billing. Plenty of room exists for “too many cooks” in THIS fabulous kitchen! It features two walk-in pantries, a vegetable sink on the island, endless counter space, new stainless appliances, and even a desk to plop your laptop and have someone read the recipes to you while you prepare them! A cozy adjacent breakfast nook provides additional seating for eating and for others to gather while meal prep is underway! Breathtaking views will join you at mealtime in the turret-style dining room, and the large stone (floor to ceiling) fireplace will warm you, body and soul.

More than just a place to hang your hat, Chateau Laurel will truly inspire you to revel in home and hearth while being away from your own space. You’re guaranteed to return with ideas to enhance your own surroundings.

Girls’ weekend, anyone? Turn on the Magnolia Network, gather some goodies from the garden, and enjoy preparing a wonderful meal together while enjoying a glass of wine, great conversation, and laughter. This is glamping in its finest hour!

The primary bedroom with two walk-in closets on the main level boasts an enormous ensuite bath with a large, tiled shower, soaking tub, double vanities, and a separate water closet. Relax in the lovely clawfoot tub while gazing out the window at the view or up at the light bouncing from the crystal chandelier. And that’s only one of the five luxe and spa-inspired bathrooms. With guest quarters on the upper level, fellow travelers are treated to privacy and quiet time between gathering for meals and outings.

The lower level of this grand manse is absolutely next level! It features a living room/library with another stately stone fireplace and desk, as well as a theater room with seating for six (We do ask that no food or drink be brought into this pristine room), as well as this highlight:  ATTENTION: remote workers, homeschooling families, online students, stock market monitors, retreat or business meeting attendees, business owners, and others who need or desire lovely, fabulous, marvelous office space! This huge turreted room with windows all around features an enormous desk to spread out and comfortably accomplish your tasks. You’ll feel like a very content and relaxed CEO in this lovely space. And speaking of space, there’s plenty of it here, so gathering to brainstorm or attend class with siblings or fellow travelers will be a breeze.  

On the uppermost level are two bedrooms, one king and one queen, and a full hall bathroom. The loft overlooks the expansive living room.

The lower level has a full bathroom and a large sleeping room with two queen beds, and this multi-level home with so much excellent living space is ideal for your mountain getaway.

What good is beauty without brains? This “Smart” home boasts an Elan system that controls the shades, thermostat, interior, and exterior lighting, TV channels, and intercom. It also delivers the day’s weather forecast. And speaking of weather, the views remain spectacular if it turns less than optimal, and the home’s generator will keep you in power! Pictures tell the rest of this story but rest assured this remarkable rambling retreat will provide a most memorable mountain vacation experience, one that you and yours will relive for years to come!

Off the beaten path, on the road less traveled, Chateau Laurel is conveniently only 9 miles, 20 minutes, from Lake Lure Beach and Water Park and only one mile farther to Chimney Rock Village and State Park.
