• Grand Estate on Big Buck

    Highlands, North Carolina
  • $2,995,000 US


BIG BUCK LODGE is truly a grand estate in a forest setting. Drive along the private road past incredible rock outcropping, a rushing stream and several cascading waterfalls. Two private bridges allow water views that will amaze your guests. This private and serene property consists of 35 wooded acres nestled into the National Forest for a natural and serene retreat.

Exceptional quality and care was taken while building this one-of-a-kind-estate: heated flooring in the master bath as well as a steam shower, to the incredible mill-work and lavish wood paneling through the home. The massive living room with stunning rock fireplace is a wonderful backdrop to the pristine mountain views available from the French doors that lead to the back deck and porch area.

This home was built with the grandeur of a formal home – no expense was spared. Marble, granite, hardwood floors, 20 foot library shelving, 4 fireplaces (1 in the master suite & another in the master suite porch), elevator, double car garage. Pamper yourself in luxury. The chef’s kitchen is clad in custom wood cabinets, granite counters with a stainless steel Viking appliance package: 6 burner gas cook-top, double warming-drawers & double Sub Zero refrigerators. The butler’s pantry/catering kitchen has direct access to the 2 car garage – the perfect staging area for any party. Enjoy entertaining in the formal dining room that comfortably seats 10. Enveloped in richly stained wood paneling, the grand foyer is warmly lit by sconces and a crystal chandelier. The elegant coiffured ceiling lends to the craftsmanship throughout this incredible home. Big Buck Lodge is the perfect family compound with 5 BR’s in the main home and 3 BR’s in the guest home. The main home has a complete 2nd kitchen/ LR with fireplace & deck along with 2 BR suites on the lower level. Exquisitely furnished (with a few exceptions) this property is move-in ready. Guest home/caretaker quarters is also move in ready and very private from main home.
