Description

Views, views and more views!!!

If views are what you are seeking, seek no further!  This house has an interesting history, is environmentally friendly, and has amazing views throughout the entire house! With 3 bedrooms, there is plenty of room for a family gathering, or friends looking for the perfect mountain get away!!

SkyFall is a two level home that features the living area, dining and kitchen, and master on the second level.  The house was designed with large viewing windows throughout to view the jaw-dropping views of Misty Mountain, Asheville and Grandfather Mountain and even Charlotte on a clear day!!! You will love the open area concept for entertaining and being around your family and friends, but never having to sacrifice the view! 

Skyfall, with a unique "duo-decagon on top of an octagon" design, sits at the top of Fair Mountain and is situated so that the Eastern Continental Divide runs right through the living room. The home was built in 1984 "off the grid." The house was self-sufficient.  Solar panels on the south side provided hot water, heat and electricity.  The solar panels are no longer present, but SkyFall continues to minimize environmental impact.  This home is warmed by "hydro-heat," has 12 inch thick walls, and cools itself by venting hot air through the central skylight, drawing in cool air mountain air from below.

Skyfall is furnished and decorated nicely and oh, so comfortable!  The living area has plush furniture, a gas log fireplace and a bar.  The kitchen boasts granite countertops, new appliances, and all of the essentials you will need.  Off the living area is the master bedroom with a king bed and private bathroom with a shower.  

The downstairs has 2 additional bedrooms with a jack-n-jill bathroom as well as a laundry room.   One guest room has a queen bed and the other guest room features a queen bed and a set of twin bunk beds!  Both bedrooms have flat screen smart tvs where you can log into your favorite streaming apps.   Spectrum Cable TV is available in the family room only.  TV sound plays through the Sonos home theater system and when no one is watching TV you can stream music through the system.

Outside is really where this property comes alive!  SkyFall's covered porch, walkway and Grandfather Deck addition were completed in May 2021.  The project lasted nearly nine months, secondary to the pandemic, and an unusally cold and snowy winter.   The deck features new patio furniture and the covered deck has gas logs, as well as an outdoor ceiling fan near the main door.  

A cozy fire pit and Adirondack chairs are available on the lawn overlooking the breathtaking mountain view!  This is nature as its finest!!

A quiet area for meditation or tea in the morning is located about a 3 minute walk below the awesome rock outcropping down from the Grandfather Deck on the west side of the house.  There is a not-so-well marked pathway that begins at the back side of the house so you'll have to wander a bit to find this treasure.

A rough trail is marked off the driveway that runs from the house to Coffee Gap and Laurel Creek.  It is a beautiful hike and setting for a picnic.  It is a strenuous hike both down (20 mintues) and back up (30 mintues).

The owners own the 15 acres that surround Sky Fall so you will have complete privacy.  With views and privacy like this we know you won't want to leave when you get here!!


3 Nights or More Minimum Stays - All Seasons.  - Long gravel driveway - owners have added new gravel and have done road improvements in 2021 - AWD/4WD  required in winter months but the views are worth it - There is no ac; however, a powered ventilating skylight provides passive cooling of the home.

After seeing the amazing views from Skyfall online, we just knew this is where we wanted to stay! And it did not disappoint! Got into town Friday, having nice Reubens and craft beers at The Speckled Trout, eating al fresco on a beautiful day! The driveway to Skyfall was long and fairly steep, but we made it up the hill with no problem during the spring clear weather in our (non-4 wheel drive) Highlander. Once there, you cant help but start singing Im on the top of the world, looking down on creation.! And its like that from every room in the house! The beds were comfortable, and we loved the huge open kitchen, living and bar areas! The kitchen was appointed with everything we needed to prepare great meals, even good knives and cutting boards! Great little fireplace to add to the coziness, while lounging on the very comfortable furniture and looking out at the mountains through the huge windows. We did make a short jaunt into town Saturday, just long enough to grab a pizza at Mellow Mushroom, and buy a great new summer flag during our stroll down Main Street. We didnt stay away from Skyfall for long during our stay, though. The sunrises and sunsets were spectacular, and we captured some great pictures. Caught up on some reading outside on the decks, while listening to the peace wonder of nature. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us! Cant wait to return!
