The Wrens’ Nest is a comfortable and luxurious home situated at 4300 feet in Maggie Valley, North Carolina. The house was completed in 2009 and is in perfect condition with everything completely updated.
The Wrens’ Nest is built on two levels. The main living area is on the ground level. Here are a spacious living-dining-kitchen area, office, covered porch, spacious deck with open and covered spaces, separate grilling deck, master bedroom with en-suite bath, another full bath, laundry/mudroom and a double garage.
On the lower level are a spacious game room, three additional bedrooms, two additional baths, and a long covered porch.
Above the garage is a huge bonus room with three single beds and plenty of play space.
All major rooms enjoy panoramic mountain views, uninterrupted by roads, wires, or other homes. The house is built on 3 acres and is extremely private. However, it is easily accessible with wide paved roads leading directly to the house. Everyone appreciates the fact that we have a flat driveway and level entrance into the house.
Main Level Living Areas
The house is definitely open concept. The living-dining-kitchen area is one spacious area with unbelievable long range mountain views from every spot. Vaulted wood ceilings, beautiful walnut floors, comfortable and quality furnishings, and plenty of amenities make for total relaxation.
The kitchen is an open galley style with a 12 foot long x 4 foot deep granite island. Top quality appliances, storage galore, all the cooking utensils you would find at home, and fabulous views promise you will enjoy preparing your favorite meals.
The dining area is surrounded by glass walls, bringing the outside in. The beautiful custom table expands to seat 10; stools at the island offer additional seating for 4.
The living room has a wood burning fireplace, beverage center with undercounter refrigerator, sound system with speakers throughout the house, and comfortable seating for seven or more.
The master suite is a world into itself. Outfitted with a king size poster bed, the room opens onto the covered portion of the deck. The bedroom has a sitting area, large HDTV, DVD player, vaulted wood ceilings, and plenty of storage. The ensuite bathroom contains a deep soaking tub, separate walk in shower, long vanity with double sinks, lots of light, wall hung TV, and heated floors
On the front of the house is a comfortable and spacious office with seating space for three. High speed wireless Internet is offered as an option in case you need to do a little work during your vacation.
The laundry/mud room contains a large capacity LG steam washer and dryer, built in ironing board, steamer, clothes folding table, and storage for boots and coats. Nearby is a powder bath with a single vanity, toilet, and shower.
A stairwell behind the fireplace leads to the lower level of The Wrens’ Nest. In the middle of the lower level space is a game room with a reclining leather couch and two reclining leather chairs facing the entertainment center. We have a 55” flat screen high definition TV, DVD player, Play Station II, and numerous books, magazines, movies, children’s videos, board games, and puzzles.
The game room has a full wet bar with sink, undercounter refrigerator, and even a pop corn machine. We also have a large game table with seating for 6. The room opens onto a covered porch that runs the length of the house and provides fantastic mountain views.
Three bedrooms and two baths complete the lower level. One bedroom has a king bed and private bath with a walk in shower, double vanity, and sliding doors opening onto the deck. Another bedroom has a queen bed and a wall of windows overlooking the mountains. The third bedroom is our “bear room” with two double beds. The queen room and bear room share a spacious bath with double vanity and tub/shower combination.
Decks and Porches
Outdoor living is wonderful at The Wrens’ Nest in spring, summer, and fall. On the main level, we have three decks: a small grilling deck with a large gas grill and a metal awning; a covered porch with comfy rockers and dining table for four; and the spacious rear deck with teak rockers, high bar table with swivel chairs, and a hot tub for two or three. In the summer and fall, we load up the humming bird feeders and set them on the deck railing. The charming little birds seem to have grown used to us and hover right in front of us while we enjoy their humming noises.
On the lower level is another deck, covered by the upper deck, and a spacious and relaxing spot to read or snooze in the shade. A stairway leads from this space down to our sloping rear three acres.
