Introducing The Sanctuary at The Lodges at Eagles Nest! A Sanctuary is defined as a place of refuge and safety, often a spiritual one. With its church-style, 30 feet high cathedral ceiling great room, The Sanctuary is very appropriately named. Built at the high point of the luxury market in 2007, the home was designed to offer the perfect balance of authentic Blue Ridge Mountain architecture and rustic elegance. Resting on a nearly six-acre perch at just over 4,500 feet of elevation, The Sanctuary features an open gourmet kitchen and bar area, free-flow to the rugged oak hardwoods of the great room and floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace. Just steps away, pass through barn-style sliding doors to the 1st master suite framed by high tongue and groove wood ceiling and featuring a king-sized four post bed with opulent linens. The master bath offers a refreshing travertine tile steam shower to get the toxins out and renew the senses. On the opposite side of the main level, you’ll find another equally impressive master suite and bath, perfect for a large family or multiple families sharing a vacation. Step outside to the sprawling deck and look out onto picturesque 180 degree south-facing views of Beech, Grandfather, Sugar Mountains and then out to the Tennessee Valley. Feel the warmth of a crackling outdoor, wood-burning fireplace while seated at the covered dining area and looking out at some of the best sunrises and sunsets the NC High Country has to offer.
Step downstairs to the lower level and you’ll find two additional guest bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other twin bunks, as well as full bath, casual den and playroom, kitchenette, game tables, retro arcade system, and Wii player for the kids. Step out to the deck of the lower level to a relaxing six-person hot tub, ideal for easing the stress of everyday life away. As night time nears, walk down to the stone fire-pit for roasting marshmallows and story time!
In addition to everything this home offers, guests at The Sanctuary also enjoy a diverse array of unique amenities inside the nearly 3,000 acre private community, including: 24-hour gated security hiking / ATV Trails, BBQ Pavilion, Great Camp Amphitheater, ball fields, ropes course, climbing tower, playground, The Toy Barn, sand volleyball court, horse shoe pit, archery range, dog park, sports court, The Sportsman’s Lodge and much more.
