Project Description

Kite House

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. 4 night minimum

Blissful stay in the mountains with spectacular views!

We loved our three-week stay at the Kite House. The spectacular views from the deck and the interesting design of the house made for a wonderful environment. Having several sleeping options for guests was also a plus, as was the huge kitchen. Our only disappointment was that the centerpiece gas fireplace wasn’t working. But we appreciated that Mr. Chambers drove up to the house and tried for an hour to fix it. My only reservation about the location is that you had to go up a one-lane road for a mile to reach the house. Not a problem for most people. But for a Florida guy like me who doesn’t usually drive on hills, it was a bit nerve-wracking. But I only had one bad experience, when a guy coming the other way must have thought I was backing up too slowly, and yelled at me Other than that, the entire stay was blissful.

The house was beautiful and the big open living room/kitchen was perfect for our family gathering. Great views and plenty of parking space for our 4 vehicles.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: 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”.
