North Carolina mountain homes for sale

Think about the most amazing vacation you’ve ever experienced. Your escape to that perfect getaway where you basked in the scenic paradise of your dreams. Remember when you opened the door to your relaxing lakefront hotel suite or romantic mountain resort? As soon as you stepped inside, you dashed to the window to throw back the curtains and drink in the spectacular view. Aaaah, feathery white clouds floating along sapphire skies past towering mountains that cast their cool shadows over crystal-clear streams. Absolutely gorgeous. This place was more incredible than you’d imagined it could be. And, lucky you, you got to drink in that natural beauty for an entire week as you hiked, fished, canoed, strolled, and wined-and-dined your way through the most glorious vacation of your life.

Wait a minute, you thought as you zipped up your suitcase and pulled the final curtain on the last day of your dream vacation, don’t I deserve more than a week-long room with a view? Shouldn’t I be experiencing this kind of bliss every day?

The answer is yes! You do deserve all of this and more. And the place to find your year-round bliss is in your very own NC mountain community at The Coves Mountain River Club. Our charming gated community offers a unique selection of craftsman-style mountain homes situated on expansive plots of land with dreamy views of both mountain and river terrain. It’s every bit as spectacular as your amazing vacation, but with one notable difference. This land belongs to you. And it’s yours to enjoy every day of the year. Top that off with a long list of luxurious amenities and community events, and you’ve just discovered how to make your life a year-round vacation but with all the comforts of home. 

World-renowned architect and ‘Father of International Style’ Le Corbusier believed that “The home should be the treasure chest of living.” We could not agree more. And we can only imagine how impressed Corbusier would be if he toured the current homes for sale in Lenoir NC in our mountain community.

One of the most stunning North Carolina mountain homes for sale is on Waterfall Lane at The Coves Mountain River Club. It offers 3,350-square feet of spacious mountain living just across the road from Pisgah National Forest and Wilson Creek. Talk about dreamy views! This handsomely designed home blends rustic elements with modern overtones. It sits on 2.25 sprawling acres and offers a front-row seat to the natural beauty of North Carolina’s historic hardwood forest, “the land of mile-high peaks,” lush slopes, cascading waterfalls, whitewater rivers, and miles of trails to share with nature-loving neighbors. With such gorgeous scenery just steps from your back door, you will no doubt be spending plenty of time soaking up the sun, breathing in the fresh mountain air, and enjoying year-round weather perfection. 

The setting is absolutely sublime. But this home on Waterfall Lane is just as beautiful on the inside. Its three spacious bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, stylishly functional office, gorgeous great room, and breezy back porch all offer long-range views of Grandfather Mountain, Table Rock, and Brown Mountain. This home comes packed with a treasure chest of extras, including a relaxing hot tub, temperature-controlled floored attic, tons of storage closets, and a whole-house generator. But our favorite feature has to be the exquisite stone fireplace that lights up the dining room with both warmth and charm, providing a cozy focal point for social gatherings, family events, or intimate occasions in your picture-perfect mountain home.

If your heart is set on homes for sale in Lenoir NC that are smaller in square footage but huge on style, comfort, and carefully curated details, there’s a lovely two-bedroom home for sale on Sunset Creek Lane that’s as inviting as its address suggests.

This rare beauty is furnished with fabulous recreational amenities, including a cloth-covered billiard table, air hockey table, three television sets, a surround-sound system, queen sleeper sofa, and all appliances, including a second refrigerator in the triple garage.

Just imagine owning a mountain home like this, situated on a circular drive near the end of the cul-de-sac and surrounded by unspoiled nature with quick access to walking trails, community gardens, and your favorite fishing spot. There’s plenty to do in this nature-rich community. But when you’re at home on Sunset Creek Lane, you’ll enjoy relaxing in the hand-crafted rocking chairs on the rustic wood-floored screened-in porch that runs the length of the house and offers seasonal views of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.
