Property Description

An oasis on the New River. A stunning three level home in a gated community with 1/4 mile of riverfront common area to enjoy. Easy access off paved state road in the Crumpler community of Ashe County, this home will be your families choice for vacation for many years to come. This immaculate home sleeps 8 or 9 adults, 10 counting the cute little kid nook.

As you enter thru the cathedral foyer, you will immediately note the quality of this home. There is a large cathedral living room with large flat screen tv, sectional sofa seating and a warm and inviting electric fireplace. This room is open to the large kitchen and sunny dining area. Dining table seats 8 and there is additional seating at the bar area as well. Kitchen gleams with granite countertops, beautiful cabinetry and high-end appliances. You will find a well-stocked kitchen with side by side stainless refrigerator, built-in microwave, dishwasher and a Jenn-Air type range with oven. Just a few steps away is a separate laundry room with front load washer and dryer on pedestals. There is also a half bath/powder room on this level.

A spacious and sunny master suite awaits with king size bed, beautiful natural lighting and hardwood floors. Step on thru into the luxurious master bath featuring glass over-size shower, jetted tub, well-lit double vanity, and a walk-in closet.

Continuing up the staircase, you will find two additional spacious bedrooms and a full bath on the second floor. One of these bedrooms has a king bed, the other a comfortable queen. Also, this home features a tiny alcove with small bed which will delight any child in the family.

The basement level features a large den/entertainment room which houses a twin bed, and sleeper sofa for additional family and guests.

There is a two -car garage, and paved driveway for your convenience.

As lovely as this home is, you will want to spend most of your time outdoors: You will enjoy the covered rocking chair porch on the front of this home, or move on back to the spacious deck with porch swing and table/chair seating for 8 or so.

Just steps below the home, you will find a large open lawn area…with historic silo… perfect for the children to play and adults as well.

Follow the easy walking trail down the riverfront common area for Whispering River—5 homes in all…. and you will be in love. A full quarter mile of river frontage featuring a beautiful grassy area, rock outcroppings, gazebo (perfect for family photos and events), horseshoe pit area, firepit area, large stone grill and lots of seating and stone tables for your picnic, and riverfront enjoyment. You can easily walk here from the home, or load up the car and drive down, just 4/10’s mile and enter the riverfront commons thru the drive-in gate.

Best of all, this home is just fifteen-twenty minutes from the historic and stroll friendly town of West Jefferson, and other attractions such as the Blue Ridge Parkway, Virginia Creeper Trail and more.
