The ultimate Smoky Mountain lakefront estate. Gracefully set upon one of the most dramatic home sites on spectacular Lake Santeetlah, this masterpiece of design is unmatched in its setting, quality, detail and accommodations.

On the shores of Lake Santeetlah, ranked as the #1 lake by Insider.com, #1 swimming lake in North Carolina by Tripping.com and top lake in the South by Southern Living, the home has endless views of the towering cirque of the Snowbird Mountains, Joanna Bald and Nantahala National Forest with peaks cresting near 6,000 feet. The home’s soaring spaces showcase the very best in sophisticated mountain living.

The three-story custom home’s creation was a remarkable collaboration between its owners and some talented professionals in the world of architecture, interior design and construction. Featuring the very finest materials such as exotic granites and native rock, the construction process was uncompromising in its commitment to quality throughout. The finest skilled craftsmen worked to seamlessly meld these materials with the most elegant fixtures, finishes and furnishings available. Floor to ceiling windows throughout give way to large outdoor spaces ideally suited to entertaining or quiet reflection, while gently blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor living.

Sumptuous Master and guest suites are warm and intimate spaces and include en-suite baths, walk-in closets and private balconies. A host of amenities include a massive rock fireplace, fitness room, pool room, loft space, recreation rooms and wet bar/butler pantries on two floors. The home can accommodate generations of guests, currently comfortably sleeping up to sixteen. With a kitchen fit for a top chef featuring exceptional design combined with a suite of top-of-the-line appliances even the most discriminating culinary aficionado will be duly satisfied. The private dock was designed to accommodate three boats and has two jet ski ports.

Magnificent Lake Santeetlah is 2,881-acre paradise, with an elevation of 1,940.9 feet, and offers open water in the midst of green mountain slopes. It is ideal for fishing and boating enthusiasts of all kinds. Most of the shoreline is surrounded by the Nantahala National Forest, therefore over 75 percent of the land will never be developed. Fishermen enjoy the variety of large and smallmouth bass, walleye, pike and several species of trout. The lake has plenty of coves, creek channels and pockets for the fish to call home, and the anglers to seek out.

Located just ten minutes from Robbinsville, an hour and half from Knoxville and Asheville, and just three hours from Atlanta, the property offers the perfect balance between privacy and proximity. The sum of these remarkable efforts has created a striking and sophisticated sanctuary nestled gracefully in the mountains……

The property can be Turn Key, with an option to purchase the home fully furnished as well as two boats (pontoon and ski), two new jet-skis and a four wheeled drive Chevrolet Tahoe. A detailed inventory with pricing can be provided upon request.
