Description

The name Morning Star celebrates the healing light of the morning sun which rises directly above the mountains of beautiful Banner Elk, North Carolina on the view side of the home. You will feel the timeless elegance of the home as you walk through the classic stone arches and into the foyer. Every aspect of the design and decor speaks to your comfort and convenience, from the spacious, well-outfitted chef's kitchen, to the private library with work or study space, to the spacious master suite with private sitting area and french doors opening onto the patio. In fact, the hardest decision of the day may be deciding whether to explore the home's gracious interior filled with warmth, art and beauty, or allow yourself to be transported by the large picture windows to the gorgeous mountain view beyond the patio and lawn. Morning Star is the embodiment of mountain living at it's very finest and reminiscent of summer homes in a peaceful, less complicated era.

To the right of the main foyer, the Library provides ceiling to floor books for reading, a small desk and chair, and doors to the front drive, and can be closed off for complete privacy.

The light-filled, cream and gold living room provides two cozy seating areas, one around the gas log fireplace and the other facing large picture windows with a stunning view of the mountains and the night sky.  Beautiful artwork, and antiques make this the perfect space to entertain guests when the nights turn chilly.

Next to the living area, the King Master Suite on the main level, known as the Blue Room, is fit for royalty. The sitting area with beautiful floor length draperies and a setee allows you private space to read or easy access directly onto the patio to visit with family and friends. A substantial flat screen TV in the master allows you to catch up on the morning or evening news or watch a late night movie in the privacy of your suite. The bedroom includes an en suite bath with a seated vanity area, mirror, soaking tub and tiled shower for her and a separate countertop, sink and tiled shower for him.   A fully organized, well lighted walk in closet has a dresser plus designated space for shoes, hanging clothes, folded clothes, luggage and more, plenty of space whether you are staying a week or several months

Preparing snacks or meals for the family or for entertaining will be a breeze in the open and spacious kitchen/dining area which provides a view of the mountains.  Sub-Zero stainless appliances, an oversized refrigerator, a copper Farmhouse sink, a built in oven and microwave make entertaining easy.  And a large island with two bar stools and a round table to seat six makes dining space for up to eight at one time.  The little ones will love the large "hidden" pantry with a childrens nook and you will appreciate  plenty of shelving for all your kitchen supplies.

Off of the kitchen you will find a large study with office space, and an overl-sized laundry with hanging racks, countertops and shelves, as well as a door to the outside.

Also on the main level, you will find an oversized two car garage with workbench and storage, where you can take off ski boots and hang up hiking gear coats and other items after adventuring in the great outdoors.

Upstairs you will find a sitting room on the landing with a small table, chair and correspondence desk.  There are three guest bedrooms upstairs, perfect for a small family.  

A Queen bedroom with Four Poster Bed, wallpaper, wing back chair, table and correspondence desk may bring back memories of bedrooms in the early 1900s.  The Four Poster Bedroom has a 26" TV, and dresser with mirror.  The Queen bedroom has an ensuite bath with combination tub/shower.

A King bedroom decorated in tan, cream and brown, includes a comfortable arm chair, dresser,  mirror, windows, bedside tables, end of bed seating, high ceilings and a 36" flat screen TV.  

Also upstairs, a Twin Bedroom with two four poster twin beds, a small desk, a wide rocking chair, a window, and rugs is the perfect child's bedroom.

Outside the child's room and upstairs King bedroom is a shared hallway bath with a shower, tiled floor, rug, sink and window, with a separate toilet area.

On the charming stone patio outside, there is an outdoor kitchen area with built in grill, an outdoor dining table to seat six, an outdoor wood burning fireplace with four chairs and a love seat and a six man hot tub all in the shadow of the mountains. On starry nights when the mountain air is crisp and cool, it will be extremely difficult to leave this unforgettable space.  Nothing could be more relaxing than making memories at beautiful Morning Star.
