Oct. 5. A magnificent mountaintop estate known as Lazy Bear Lodge is on the market for $29.75 million—the most expensive estate property in the Carolinas. The home of the late Chuck Weber, a real estate developer who died last year, it sits on 5.86 acres atop a ridge in Linville Ridge Country Club at an elevation of 5,000 feet.

The estate is offered fully furnished, with an extensive Western art collection spanning three centuries.

Premier Sotheby’s International Realty’s office in Asheville has the listing.
