Get ready to be more than impressed as you enter this gated estate with the eagle atop the roof for which the property is named. Get ready to ooh and ahh as you pull into the timber framed porte cochere and pass the water feature with koi at the doorway. And finally, hold tight to your fantasies as you actually enter Eagle's Landing at Big Bear Estate, a 7,200 square foot designer, art-filled home which sits 4,200 feet above Hazelwood Village and Waynesville. Boasting 5 bedrooms (including two master suites,) two kitchens, upstairs and downstairs living rooms, five and one/half baths, wine cellar with newly added man cave, this is truly an upscale dream home.

The Great Room, which looks out to the spectacular mountain view, features a bar, is artfully, designer furnished/decorated, and boasts a gas fireplace with walk-out to the covered verandah furnished with comfortable seating, propane fire pit and a top-of-the-line barbecue.

The Second Master Suite is a lovely timber-framed gem above the garage complete with full bath, sitting area, verandah, queen sized bed, gas fireplace, Keurig coffee maker, and large screen television.
The property has a meandering walkway up to the hot tub, outdoor wet bar and tennis court with a basketball net.

A Mercedes SUV which seats 7 and driver is available upon request/fee. Airport pickup/dropoff is available upon request/fee.
This home is appropriate for families, multiple couples travelling together, businesses looking for a great retreat, and newlyweds-to-be looking for a perfect small wedding venue or a place to house their guests. The fact that the estate with its dynamite views and property is located just 4 miles from Waynesville and 30 miles from downtown Asheville makes it a wonderful choice of home away from home for those who want the views, the outdoors and easy accessibility. Since there are separate entrances to the upstairs and downstairs, full kitchens and laundries both up and downstairs, and a door that can be closed and locked between up and downstairs the 'Big House' is perfect for families/couples who want to pool their resources and vacate to a place that provides privacy for separate parties who want to get together only at certain times or not at all.
This easily accessible home is 5 minutes from downtown Waynesville, 35-40 minutes from Asheville, 25-30 minutes from Cataloochee Ski Are, 30 minutes from Cherokee/Harrah's Casino. It is equipped with a whole house generator for those rare times when the power is out in the area.
