Situated on a large, grassy property at the end of a quiet mountain road, Hilltop Haven feels as if it is way out in the country, as you look out at the mountain views in every direction, however as you look down at the Brookshire park & soccer fields, you know how close you are to the heart of town, and that downtown Boone and App State campus are just a couple miles away! Most of the property is level and grassy; bordered by mature trees, pastures and cow fields, it is an ideal place for children and dogs to run and play. There is a wood burning fire pit on the grounds and a picnic table for guests to enjoy, plenty of parking and a one-car garage for added convenience.
The main level offers a central Great Room with soaring vaulted ceilings with exposed beams, wide plank pine walls and hardwood floors. Leather sofas and armchairs are situated around a floor-to-ceiling stacked stone gas log fireplace, huge HDTV, and windows which look out at mountain views. The Kitchen is huge, with custom shaker-style cabinets, a large double-bay under-mount stainless sink, granite counters and stainless appliances. There is a pass-through to the Dining Room which provides a granite counter/bar top with additional bar stool seating for 4 guests, and a central round dining table that seats 8 more! There is a half bathroom conveniently-located near the foyer and Great Room. The rear deck stretches the length of the house, and offers a covered area outside of the Dining Room with a gas grill and outdoor dining table & chairs. The deck is otherwise open-air with Adirondack style chairs and gliders, and a nice hot tub!
The primary King master suite is also on the main level, with glass doors which open onto the rear deck and offer direct access to the hot tub. The custom King bed was crafted locally, and is a one-of-a-kind timber bed with reclaimed barnwood headboard, and is flanked by bedside tables handmade to match! There is an HDTV atop the dresser, a walk-in closet, and a private ensuite full bathroom with double vanity, and tub/shower combo.
The upstairs has a central full bathroom with double sink vanity and tub/shower combo which serves both upstairs bedrooms. One of which has a King bed and a chair which open up to offer an additional Twin sleeper. Across the hall is another bedroom with a custom log Queen bed, as well as a Twin day bed and pull-out Twin trundle bed. Both bedrooms have an HDTV, and look out at mountain views.
Downstairs boasts a cool sitting area with a round table for playing games and cards, or assembling puzzles. Also downstairs is a beautiful shuffleboard game table, and in the adjacent attached garage is a ping pong table that guests are welcome to enjoy. There is a cozy Den and Media Room with a wall-mounted HDTV, comfy furniture including a Full sleeper sofa for additional sleeping options. This makes for a great "extra sleeping room" for children or teens! Beside the Den is the Bunk Bedroom which features custom log furniture and tongue-in-groove ceilings. The Bunk Bedroom boasts a Queen bed as well as a Twin over Twin bunk bed. Adjacent to the Bunk Bedroom is both a laundry room and a full bathroom with shower.
There is a walking trail from the rear of the property which leads to the Greenway Trail, one of Boone's finest features!
