Imagine yourself in a home fit for royalty nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains. If you've got $5,870,000 to spare, this dream could very well come true at 259 Midland Drive in Asheville, North Carolina, a resplendent Georgian Estate now listed with Premier Sotheby's International Realty. The over-the-top mountain home spares no detail with a stunning pool and ice cream bar, an impressive foyer, handsome library, game room, home theater, beautiful gardens, and so much more.

"This architectural gem has a timeless design and an unmatched level of craftsmanship. Meticulously maintained, its array of custom features and resort-style amenities will appeal to the discerning buyer who is looking for the best of both worlds: a private retreat near Asheville's abundant cultural offerings," said listing agent Marilyn Wright, Premier Sotheby's International Realty, of the property.
