Guest Rating:

Vacation rental house. Sleeps 8, 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms. No pets allowed.

731 Cowee Ridge Road Highlands, NC 28741 United States

At the Kite House, one can live in a piece of artwork designed by famed modernist architect, Jim Fox. This unique home was designed to optimize spectacular views of Whiteside Mountain and Devil’s Courthouse from every room. Sitting at 4,500 ft., the views are constantly changing as you watch the skyline and mountain ridges.

As soon as you enter the living area, you are greeted with a massive stacked stone fireplace set against a wall of windows allowing the mountain views to come inside the home. The Chef’s kitchen, dining area, and two living areas flow easily for your family’s use or for entertaining. One of the two living areas enjoys the remote controlled gas long fireplace, and beautiful sitting area with italian leather. while the other one has a large projection TV and there’s an office area in between so you can work and play at the same time. The main level also has the Mst. BR with King bed, flat screen, private bath with ‘his and hers’ area, guest half bath, and guest BR (King) with private bath. The lower level has two bedrooms (Queen, 2 twins) each with a private bath. The lower level family room area has a kitchenette as well as access to the lower deck with putting green, and hammock area.

A photographer’s paradise. Watch the light in the sky shift and change across mountain and cloud shadows from a 180 panorama on the cantilevered back deck. The house is a 4 minute drive from the Shadow of the Bear Overlook on Highway 64.

Amenities include: 2 story stacked stone fireplace with gas log, Irish steam room, chef’s kitchen, fully social/entertaining equipped for groups up to 25, Bride suite, up-to-date tech interface, and much more. The views throughout the house are hypnotizing and awe-inspiring.

    What an amazing property! The views from the Kite House are breath taking. The house is welcoming with everything you need to accommodate a family reunion. No restaurant has a better view, so we had our dinners "at home".
