The Galvladi Mountain Residence is just a short 45 minutes west of Asheville. “Galvladi” comes from the Cherokee Nation’s word for “Heaven”, perfectly describing the mature hardwood forest that includes hiking trails, waterfalls, creeks, native flora/fauna, wildflowers, rock outcroppings, and incredible long-range, layered mountain views with a Forest Stewardship Management Plan. This 10,125sf custom home, situated at 4,000’ in elevation, is a composite design that incorporates the structural features of post-and-beam construction with the traditional elegance of a log home; a warm and inviting log home feel along with greater flexibility to customize the interior finishes. Nicely distributed throughout 3-levels are 6 bedrooms, 7/2 bathrooms. The main level master wing includes bedroom, well-appointed bath area, shower, tub, a private water closet, and dual vanities. Also featured is a library, office, solarium, great room, dining and living space, gourmet kitchen, 2 lower guest bedrooms with bathrooms and wet bars, exercise room, 2 massage/treatment rooms, storage facilities, and mechanical space. The residence is served by a spacious 3-car garage that includes a private, unfinished apartment above. The entire residence is also served by a lightning protection system.
