500/502 Sheer Rock Road Glenville, NC 28736
Once upon a time, there was a castle on a mountain presiding over a majestic forest of trees with amazing views of other mountains and valleys for miles on all sides. This fairy tale castle is not just in a storybook. It exists today in Cashiers, North Carolina. Enjoying sunrises and sunsets to bathe the owners with wonderment every morning and night, the kaleidoscope of colors radiate throughout the home . Most castles never go up for sale. They are owned by kings and queens who pass them down to the next generation. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own your own castle on twenty plus acres with another residence in a barn with numerous out buildings and trails through this private estate. Sited at a pinnacle on Laurel Knob where the views expand fifty miles in all directions, sits not only the castle but also a guest house barn with a nearby wine cellar dug into the hill, a cooking gazebo, multiple viewing overlooks, a camp house, a greenhouse, a chicken coop and a dog park. The castle was modeled after fire towers built by the National Park Service in the late 1800s dotted along the high points of mountain ranges to give advance warning of forest fire. Many of these towers were powerful yet simple structures constructed of stone from foundation to roof and made exceedingly well. The acclaimed Southern architect, Jeffrey Dungan, heeded the owners' wishes to build them such a tower to live in. He chose limestone and fieldstone of the exterior walls to be repeated on the hearths and fireplaces, carrying through to the interior patina of the old materials wrapping the exterior of the house. The bluestone pavers on the terraces flow into the living room and kitchen. The infinity swimming pool and spa are steps away from the primary suite and main floor living area. The guest barn has a gourmet kitchen, two bedrooms, two baths and plenty of extra space to finish to your desires. This estate is one of the most unique on the planet.
