Elka Park isn’t your typical private residential community. You won’t find ugly McMansions plopped down on clear cut land with a multitude of cul-de-sacs and very little space between properties. Quite the contrary at Elka Park. Located in Hunter, Elka Park is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places with 17 Victorian cottages built between 1890-96. The roads are unpaved. Some of the properties are located on nearly and acre or more. There are hiking trails and waterbodies. And, there’s this grand Victorian perched on a hillside overlooking the mountains. Inside, you’ll find all the details you’d expect from a 19th century Victorian: Bay windows, native stone fireplace, a parlor, double staircase, etc. There are 5 bedrooms on the second floor and 2 bedrooms on the third floor, but really, it’s all about that rounded balcony and the views for us. Also includes gardens and a rustic gazebo. Residents have access to the Park’s clubhouse, pool, and tennis courts during the summer months.
