Construction on the third cottage at Sutton Knob, a 3-bedroom, 3.5-bath home, has just been completed and the home is now available for rent through Deer Ridge Property Management. The house offers outstanding long-range mountain views and ample sunlight due to its location high on the ridge near the entrance to Sutton Knob. At a groundbreaking ceremony for a third Sutton Knob vacation rental home held Monday, October 19, Dan Schuessler, the property developer, gathered with the builder of the third cottage, Ryan Jacques of Going Green Builders, as well as members of the United Way of Transylvania County, to commemorate the special occasion.
The home features a total of 1,926 square feet on two levels with the main level having 1,280 square feet and the upper level an additional 646 square feet. According to the home’s designers, Moss Creek, the layout was modeled after America’s early heritage and is called the Mt. Pisgah. The name is fitting as views of Mt. Pisgah can clearly be seen from the Summit at Sutton Knob throughout the year. The naming of the mountain dates back to 1776 when General Griffith Rutherford led an expedition in the mountains of North Carolina. Accompanying this expedition as a chaplain was Rev. James Hall. The men of the expedition saw the mountain from the French Broad River valley and saw a rich land around it… a land of milk and honey, a promised land. They drew parallel with the land that Moses saw from Pisgah and applied the Biblical appellation to the mountain.
“The Mt Pisgah by MossCreek karkens back to America’s rich heritage of living and building off the land,” the designers state. “With the use of natural materials of wood, stone, and glass, the Mt Pisgah appears to be ‘born of the Earth,’ creating the perfect small rustic home.”
