The first time I drove up the hill and saw the lot at 14 Sugar Maple Drive I knew it would be the perfect place to build the perfect home . . . a center of peace and serenity surrounded by whispering trees, cheerful birds, and the fresh mountain air. With a gorgeous view of
Because of the mild climate, you can find a festival any time of the year. One I’ve come to love is the Taste of Greenville, just an hour away in
The history here in the mountains will take you a lifetime to investigate, from the geology to the original Indians to the settlers, the artists, the builders, the dreamers. There are several universities and colleges within an hour’s drive including the
Walk through the leaded glass front door into the entry from the covered drive and turn into an open plan living and dining area with a stunning 31-foot ceiling, large stone gas-lit fireplace and custom oak cabinet concealing a 52-inch TV. The widows reach to the ceiling, where an incredible double fan silently circulates the air. Notice the long panels that run along the ceiling, concealing indirect lighting that fills the ceiling and the room with soft light. Open either set of double sliding glass doors and step out onto a wraparound deck that will lead you to a huge screened porch, just off the kitchen, with access doors to both the kitchen and dining area. Wherever you look you will be surrounded by the mountain forest; below, the mountain’s dramatic drop lets you see above the tree line in several places.
This unique custom-built home has everything a woman wants in a house. The dream kitchen has a double stainless steel sink with a garbage disposal, a silent dishwasher, and best of all, a sweeping yet private view of nature outside. Stainless gas/electric convection oven stove with all the bells and whistles with a stylish stainless hood, a stainless French door refrigerator; all wrapped around a large butcher block island. Quarter-sawn oak cabinets abound, offering storage everywhere including lit leaded glass corner cabinets above lazy Susan trays. Granite countertops on every surface including a wet bar which opens onto the dining area. The kitchen is a pleasure to work in, each step cushioned by wonderful cork floors. Across from the kitchen is a convenient walk-in pantry which also contains the home’s central vacuum tools. The vacuum system has outlets throughout the house and garage.
Just past the pantry, note the width of the halls and doorways and stylish lever door handles on every door for greater accessibility and handicap-friendliness. By the door just past the pantry you will see a button on the wall, push it and open the door and pull the accordion door back. Surprise . . . an elevator accessing all (3) floors, large enough to carry a wheelchair and two adults.
But before you go to another level, walk down the hall, on your left there is a huge laundry room with ample storage space and a large folding bench, plus a door to the outside so muddy gardening clothes don’t have to come through the house. Across the hall is the guest powder room with a custom solid mahogany vanity with a fun sink and spigot. At the end of the hall open a door to the spacious master bedroom with a spacious walk-in closet and a unique ceiling fan. Then enter the master bath, tiled from ceiling to heated tile floor, with dual sinks set in a granite counter top, a Jacuzzi tub, and a walk in shower with a variety of different shower heads; rain, wall and handheld or all (3) at once . . . a true Roman bath.
Then take the elevator or climb the open staircase from the great room to find a large loft, softly lit by two skylights that would make it an ideal office, reading area or library with an incredible view. To the side is a small bedroom or office with a leaded glass door which opens onto a balcony over the front door. While upstairs, note all of the little doors along the outside walls that open to thoughtful additional storage space.
Back to the elevator, push 1, this brings you to the downstairs floor with a generous (3) car garage to your right, but that’s not all. One of the garage bays can accommodate a small truck. Turn left and you will find a separate huge family or recreation area, just waiting for your finishing ideas. There is also another full bath and bedroom. This area could be easily transformed into a very comfortable in-law suite, a home theater, a man-cave, or any other inspiration that strikes you. Note the large sliding glass doors which go out onto another wrap around this deck with stairs that go to the upper deck. As elsewhere, there are many closets, nooks, and crannies for storage. At the end of the large open area there is a door that leads you to a utility room door and an open staircase leading up to the main floor living room.
