Your search for the ideal luxury home with incredible mountain views is over! Welcome to SKYTOP RETREAT, a spectacular home overlooking the Johns River Gorge and offering 50 mile layered mountain views from nearly every room!
If you want to see the best views around you'll need to go off pavement. This home is accessed by a very steep gravel road. 4WD or AWD vehicles are absolutely required year-round, and during winter months chains may also be necessary. All guests going to Skytop Retreat must drive respectfully and slowly through the neighborhood. There is a garage with room for 2 cars, and room for 2 more cars to park outside. It is a shared driveway and the neighborhood has one-lane gravel roads. Please see more details below.
As you enter the home, you'll move through the foyer into the dining room. This welcoming space features a table with seating for 10 people, so there's plenty of room for everyone to pull up a chair and break bread together. A few steps down from the dining room leads you into the great room with its soaring ceilings, stone gas log fireplace, TV, and glass double doors to the open deck. The kitchen is at the rear of the great room, and is a chef's dream with Viking brand stainless steel appliances, granite counters, huge island, custom cabinetry, warming drawer, and a variety of helpful small appliances including a food processor, blender, hand mixer, slow cooker, and a rice cooker. The pantry offers an built-in ice maker for your convenience, as well.
Skytop Retreat features several options for those who want to have some fun, kick back, and relax. The lower level has a den area with comfortable couches arranged around a big screen TV, BluRay player and an XBox360, as well as a shuffleboard table and a multi-game arcade cabinet stocked with all the classics from the golden age of games. Of course, don't miss the ever-changing awe inspiring mountain views from your seat on the deck! During the winter months you can hear the sounds of flowing water and see a small waterfall to the left of the house, and those nimble enough to navigate can enjoy seeing it up close on the cleared pathway to it. And there's simply no better way to relax than a nice long soak under the stars in the hot tub on the side deck.
There are four bedrooms as well as a private sleeping loft, giving Skytop Retreat a total of five sleeping areas. The main level offers a bedroom with a Queen bed, a fireplace, and an attached full bathroom with a shower. Upstairs you'll find the loft with a Queen bed, and down the hall is the luxurious master bedroom suite with a King bed and ensuite bathroom with champagne soaking tub and separate tiled shower. Downstairs on the lower level are two more bedroom suites. One offers a King bed and the second offers a Queen bed, and both bathrooms have a tub/shower in them. There's even a full-sized folding portable crib with mattress stored in an upstairs closet, along with a booster set, perfect for the littlest guest to use.
Skytop Retreat invites you and your loved ones to relax and renew your souls in this special slice of the mountains. No matter what you do here in the High Country, you'll love coming home to Skytop Retreat!
