Own a piece of history in “Beaumont,” one of the most legendary estates in Flat Rock.
The Beaumont (“the beautiful mountain”) was initially built in 1839 and was extensively renovated in 1910 by Richard Sharp Smith, the supervising architect for the Biltmore Estate. Notably features include local quarried, cut granite walls, wrap-around porches with wooden columns, and views over the gated grounds and mountains beyond. But the spirit of the home brings so much more to the property.
This incredible luxury home sits on the site of an original cabin thought to have been a stagecoach stop prior to the creation of the nearby lake and dam. In the side yard of the property, there is still a rock well thought to have been a watering hole for the stagecoach passengers. Many of the interior features of the home were salvaged from that cabin, including the farm sink in the laundry room and the hand-carved mahogany doors throughout.
Spacious parlors in the home feature curved architecture, original carved mantels, and decorative molded ceilings. The master, designed to look like an addition to the original home with outdoor siding used on interior walls, has its own fireplace and loft space for an office or relaxing getaway. The master opens to its own private, lakeview covered terrace.
Two large bedrooms upstairs share a Jack-and-Jill bathroom, as well as views of the lake and surrounding woods from towering windows. You are likely to spot some of the variety of wildlife that abounds on this unspoiled acreage.
There is a cedar-lined wine/beer cellar in the basement recreation room, along with two rooms that could be used as extra sleeping spaces, offices, or workout rooms. The lower level has beautifully finished concrete floors, perfect for friends and family to flow in from the lake and outdoor spaces. Formal gardens, a swimming pool, tennis court, and separate guest quarters round out the many luxury amenities of this unique, historic home.
