About 461 Spice Bottom Trail

Welcome to Cider Stone Lodge. This extraordinary compound offers the rare assemblage of a true, private sanctuary on 51 acres of manicured grounds, threaded by cascading waters, long range views, and a marked trail system that extends onto bordering Julian Price Park lands- all perched on Grandfather Mountain. Stretching over 3800 ft in elevation & nestled in a location central to Boone, Banner Elk, & Blowing Rock, this spectacular estate is a true legacy property, easily accessible year-round & offering ultimate privacy with the comfort of access through a gated community. Travel down a level, tree-lined lane past waterfalls & rock out-croppings to arrive at the 4BR, 4.5BA estate masterpiece where a unique mix of stone, wood, metal, & glass portray a model of supreme craftsmanship & utmost attention to detail. An abundance of natural elements create an atmosphere that is harmonious with the nature that surrounds, with each window in the home meticulously designed to frame the Blue Ridge Mountain views & each space perfectly planned for comfortable mountain living. With "cozy-yet-spacious" being a theme throughout, each of 4 suites offer impressive entryways, fireplaces, & baths while a bonus room & office areas offer flexibility. Stemming from the 2nd floor is additional unfinished space, + a room over the 2 car garage, providing easy expansion potential (for BR, BA, bonus, etc). A 4-sided fireplace creates a dramatic scene upon entry & rivals the views as the focal point of the home while accordion glass doors open the living to the outdoors. Grounds features include covered outdoor living/dining area w/ wood burning fireplace, open to yards & patios, heated plunge pool etched into the mountain, fire pit & bocce ball court, circular brick drive, & marked trail heads leading to unique settings including picnic area, "twin peaks" boulders, Spice Branch Creek, & National Park Lands. Furnished w/ minor exceptions. Too many features to note- see attached Features List!
