Looking for a mountain getaway? Check out this eight-bedroom, eleven-and-a-half-bath house in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Set on 43 acres not far from the Appalachian Trail, the property consists of two buildings—a main residence and a log guest house with three bedroom and three bathrooms.

The sprawling main home’s focus is an expansive great room with 220-year-old timber frames and barn-style ceilings. Windows in all directions take advantage of panoramic views, and the home’s location at 5,000 feet in elevation lets you spy ridge lines and peaks 50 miles away. This is farmhouse style gone mountain chic.

As befits a luxury property, the list of amenities is long; the separate guesthouse features a wraparound porch and a garage space boasts a workshop, barn, and office. But we’d probably spend most of our time in the main home thanks to a game room, fitness center, home theater, and library. Even the laundry room impresses with multiple washers and dryers and plenty of storage.
