Description

Picturing Westview is easy.  Just imagine a cozy cottage situated high on a bluff, nestled in a grove of mature white pines, and surrounded by colorful flowers.  Now add stunning views of the Blue Ridge mountains.  Then, a meandering trail down to the river.  Put it all together and you get the private retreat that makes the outside world seem far away.  A lush landscape of wooded hillside, pine groves, lawns, and fields is a perfect backdrop for all sorts of activities.   New gardens, small livestock, a pool, or anything else you might want to consider will all be set at to breath-taking advantage against the backdrop of the Blue Ridge.   Come see for yourself what makes this property so special.

This charming house is very well-designed for weekend or retirement living.  Sited on a bluff above the Thornton River to take maximum advantage of the views, the house faces west to capture the panorama of the Blue Ridge mountains. Large picture windows frame the views from the living room and master suite.  A large screened porch provides plenty of outdoor living space, and back and side porches add even more space to enjoy the scenery.  A large basement and two car garage provide plenty of hobby and storage space.  Extensive landscaping provides a colorful anchor to this home among the pines.

Grounds

A bold stream courses through the woodland at the property entrance.  Past the wooded hillside, the property opens up to a wide lawn that merges into a neighboring hayfield. Extensive landscaping around the house and into the lawn provides a variety of color and texture throughout the growing season.  The eastern boundary is covered in mature white pines.  There is plenty of space for a barn, workshop, or other structure away from the main house.   Several ideal pool or outbuilding sites would have magnificent mountain views.   A deeded right-of-way from the property through a neighboring farm allows access to the Thornton River along a beautiful private stretch of the river just right for fishing, swimming, or canoeing.
