Sold a Beautiful Home in Blowing Rock!

One of my favorite things about selling real estate in the High Country is finding these hidden gems nestled in the rhododendrons.  This quaint, mountain bungalow holds one of the most unique views of the backside of Grandfather Mountain I’ve ever seen.  The view is a 180° panorama and the home has plenty of privacy.  It may not be the most expensive home on the market but there’s a realness to this mountain home that I love.  I’m proud to represent clients on homes of this ilk that will stay in their families for decades.

Icy Walk at Bass Lake in Blowing Rock

Walking Dinah at Bass Lake – Blowing Rock, NC

One of the nicest things about living in Boone is the ability to drive just a few minutes and find yourself at a beautiful spot like this.  Sara and I took Dinah for a walk the other night at Bass Lake in Blowing Rock.  It was more like ice skating than walking but it was still fun!  It’s so refreshing to be in the mountains in the Winter.  It was cold on the lake but it was such a pleasant evening.
