Welcome to a taste of Europe! Upon entering this stately home you'll appreciate the soaring ceilings, sweeping staircase, intricately designed flooring and the AMAZING VIEWS!!!! The beautiful main level includes an impressive foyer, formal dining room, library/sitting room, family room with gas log fireplace and exquisite built-ins. The well appointed kitchen opens to a breakfast nook overlooking the expansive backyard and long range views. A primary suite fit for a king will be the perfect place to relax at the end of the day. Descending to the lower level will lead you to a sprawling suite that can be used for in-laws or long term guests as it has its own full kitchen and laundry room. Also included in this pristine property is a sauna, a pond, a creek and a car lift in the 3rd garage. The area behind the property is a Conservation area and will never be built on, so no obstructed views! Ridgeview has a community park with access to the French Broad River.
