Our featured “Extraordinary Home ♦ Extraordinary View” this week is a stunning lakeside gem with immaculate views in every corner. Sit on the sundeck and enjoy front row entertainment as the birds soar over the mountaintops, mother ducks teach their brood of ducklings, and an occasional deer peeks through the bushes for a sip of water. 

Enjoy morning tea or coffee on the main level deck as you start your day. The views are spectacular! Watch as the sunlight sparkles on the lake and the mountains paint their reflection on the water.

Wave at the boaters as they cruise around the waterway, and the fisherman as they row home with the day’s catch.

As the sun begins to sink, relax at your lower patio and watch the picturesque lake through old world inspired archways.

On rainy days, sit in the cozy  sunroom and gaze outside your big bay windows as approaching storms light up the mountains and raindrops dance along the lake.

No matter what the day brings, you can always come back home to your own paradise in the mountains. Don’t escape the world, embrace it!

Did anyone guess this location? If you said Buffalo Creek Road you’re correct!! If you are driving towards the resort from Bald Mountain Lake this is the shot. Some of the terrain has changed and the road is now paved, but the photos are still very similar. 

 Long ago……well maybe not that long ago roads were made of dirt!! Can you guess where this picture was taken?

Here is the big reveal of last week’s photograph. Was anyone able to guess where that picture was taken? 

This photo was taken in 1924 and is the Chimney Rock Consolidated School. The caption read that it was near Havener’s Point and was located in what is now, “most likely” the middle of the lake!!

Since the school has been under water for more than 80 years, there is no way of knowing where the exact location is. Hopefully further research will lead me to someone that can tell us.

If you look at the photos side by side, you will see that the mountain on the right side of the current photo looks very similar to the mountain behind the school in the old photo. So we have determined that this is probably in the same location. If anyone has any more information or even better, more photographs please contact me at 828.625.9600 ext.217 or email andrea@lakecountrync.com.

Photographs capture moments in time and take you to places and times you may never have gone to before. Frozen so that future generations can get a glimpse of the way things used to be. We have been searching for old photos of Lake Lure and the surrounding area so that we may see some of Lake Lure’s history. We were very lucky to have found quite a few very interesting photographs, so we have put together an ongoing “Then & Now” article featuring some of these great pictures. Each week we will post a “then” photo and the following week we will post the same photo in present day.

Can you guess where this photo was taken? The answer is hidden deep inside Lake Lure!

Our featured “Extraordinary Home ♦ Extraordinary View” this week is a sophisticated masterpiece built in 1986 by Climis and Carol Lascaris. Combining elements of Old World Charm with luxurious details, “The Palace”  captivates you and the moment you walk in the door you can feel the special memories of the past whisper from room to room. This unique property features not one but two homes, each with their own distinct character. 


 

The original house (base for the guest house) was purchased by Louise Matthews (Carol’s mother) after their 1st visit in 1979  – she saw the view and had to have it.  Wrote a check on the spot. The A-frame section and the deck were        added later.                                                                                            

The Lascaris family, who are world renowned interior designers, later decided to design and build their house in the mountain (a larger home on the same site) – it took three years to build because they could not use dynamite to remove the rock.  It was dug and chipped out by hand. Imported marble has been laid throughout the entire home. Floors, countertops, showers and fireplaces shine with rich blends of intricate design. 

The home was acquired by a new owner several years ago and due to unforseen circumstances have not been able to utilize and maintain it to its full potential. This offering is a great opportunity for someone with creativity and vision to restore the homesite to its original grandeur. 

 As for the view…..well let’s just say it is one of the most spectacular of the entire Hickory Nut Gorge area. As far as the eye can see left all the way to the right, over 220º stunning views of the Rumbling Bald Mountain chain. Inspiring peaks, steep cliffs and massive boulders can be seen from nearly every room in the house. Watch as hawks and eagles circle and soar the landscape and song birds sing their morning tunes all while in the comforts of home!

Opportunities include:                                                                                           Rental Income Investment, Corporate Retreat or Private Residence                                                                                                                                                               This home is offered by Thomas M.
