The elegant solid wood dining table with four chairs and a bench plus four extra stools as well as three stools at the kitchen bar provide plenty of dining space. Access to the attached garage is through the kitchen, and the 2-bay garage has one bay for guest parking and one set up with a ping-pong table.
The living room, decorated with modern contemporary touches, has a 20-foot high stone gas log fireplace, windows soaring to the cathedral ceiling, magnificent long- and short-range views, and a 65" smart Tv.

Also on this level is a spacious laundry room, with a washer & dryer and ample counter & cabinet space.

The spacious master suite is on this level, with a King-sized bed, a loveseat, and a large built in wardrobe. The private bathroom has a roomy garden tub and stone tiled shower as well as double granite vanities, heated floor, and heated towel rack.
The main level deck has stunning long-range views. From the lower deck, go downstairs even further to a smaller deck, perfect for stargazing, or a great starting point to explore the surrounding woods with easy to strenuous hiking trails surrounding the property. Sit and contemplate the beauty of the area from the large natural boulders set into the hill. Rhododendron, lilies of all colors, white pine trees, and more all combine for elegantly beautiful natural landscaping that provides total privacy.
With all that this lovely home has to offer, you may not want to leave this haven. But when you do, you will be pleasantly surprised to find that it is only 10 minutes to downtown Blowing Rock, 15 minutes to Appalachian Ski Mountain and Tweetsie Railroad, 20 minutes to Boone, and a short drive to any other High Country attractions. You're sure to love staying at Rockcliff Retreat!
