A stunning 26-acre estate in the Blue Ridge Mountains has entered the market for $9.25 million — the highest-priced home in Fairview.
Located at 5 Wild Wind Trail, this unique residence boasts sweeping long-range mountaintop vistas and sunset scenes. After an extensive renovation, the mountain residence was awarded Best Whole House Remodel, Best Outdoor Living Space and Best Room Remodel for the kitchen by the North Carolina Home Builders Association in 2019. The listing is marketed exclusively by Marilyn Wright of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty’s Asheville office.
Originally built in 2009, the four-bedroom, five-and-two-half-bath primary residence underwent a two-year remodel and expansion by Kevin Reed of BlueStone Construction, architect Wayland Shamburger and interior redesign by Ronal Fenstermacher.
An array of distinguished elements and bespoke finishes inspired by destinations across the globe are present throughout the reimagined property. A porcelain tile fireplace surround in the great room soars to 25 feet while European white-oak flooring is complemented by waxed steel beams for a contemporary and industrial feel. Bright, open living spaces deliver a modern sanctuary that connects to the views beyond.
The award-winning kitchen is crafted with natural stone chevron tile, a brass range, gold fixtures, a turquoise stove and an island that was quarried in Brazil. An expansive main-level master wing captures the beauty of the surrounding landscape through frameless windows. The home’s lower level is reminiscent of a sophisticated urban hotel highlighted by a Parisian-style bar with custom light fixtures from New York. Middle Eastern and Asian influences are also showcased throughout the bar and lounge while silver-studded French blue doors open into a state-of-the-art theater room. Additional appointments include an elevator, billiards room and spa/steam room.
The outdoor living area features phantom screens, infinity-edge pool, spa and fire pit that overlook the mountain range. A separate guesthouse is ideal for entertaining featuring three bedrooms and two full baths. The property also includes attached and detached garages.
“This carefully curated estate is truly one of the most remarkable residences in the western North Carolina region,” said Marilyn Wright. “Its breathtaking views, one-of-a-kind features and abundant acreage will appeal to the discerning buyer seeking exceptional private mountain living just outside of downtown Asheville.”
