Today in fantasy home browsing, allow us to acquaint you with the Ellsleigh estate in Asheville, North Carolina. Located in the Biltmore Forest, nearby the famed Biltmore Estate, this stately five-bedroom, six bathroom home was erected in 1927, by celebrated architect, Harrie T. Lindeberg, with landscape architecture by Chauncey Beadle (he was esteemed for his gardens at Biltmore Estate).

The beautiful mansion was made for the founders of the Coca-Cola Bottling Company of Asheville. Until now, the property has remained in the family. Its first listing in its nearly 100-year history is with Marilyn Wright of Premier Sotheby's International Realty for a cool $8.75 million. "This architecturally significant estate has a timeless design and an unmatched level of craftsmanship. Meticulously modernized for today's discerning buyer, it is both a cherished home and a piece of living history—complemented by 4.5-acres of land in desirable Biltmore Forest," says Wright of the listing.Ready to start daydreaming of your slice of mountain home paradise?
