Headed by Grandfather Mountain, which rises over Boone to an altitude of 5,964 feet, these mountains are well known to naturalists in search of clues to this region's birth. Grandfather Mountain itself is something of an anomaly, boasting a unique admixture of Northern and Southern species that do not live in such close proximity anywhere else in America. Mile-high vegetation such as Heller's Blazing Star draws shutterbugs from all over the country.

Of course, the homes are what truly get the imagination going here in the mountains. Ashe High Country Real Estate is proud to offer a wide variety of cottages, cabins, chalets and colonial homes throughout these hills, including some that boast the very latest in architectural flair. Triple-pane windows, cherry-stained wood and soaring elevations make these homes true sanctuaries high above the clouds.
