Fall asleep to the sound of water falling and wake to the sun rising through the entire valley which is the view from the master bed.
The whole valley, plus more, is also the view from the wide open den, from the huge deck and guest bedroom. Through every window looking out is beauty and coming back in is the gentle sound of the waterfalls below.
The beautiful custom log home is situated on nearly seven acres and is bordered by a strong creek, creek side walking trails and protected common area.
The home has been perfectly designed to make use of the extraordinary views and to also provide for comfortable and relaxed living. The master bedroom suite has windows which look out across the nascent Catawba River Valley all the way to the flatlands. The master bedroom is large, about 24’ x 19’; the master bath has a jet tub, separate sit-down shower and walk-in closet.
I am sitting at the dining room table while writing this. Relaxed, open and comfortable - how could a person not feel relaxed, open and comfortable sitting here looking through the large windows across maybe a dozen ridgelines all the way past where the mountains end. Behind me is the open kitchen - stainless new appliances and tons of cabinets and counter area.
Between me and the valley is the main living area. The fireplace is wood burning. The furniture, which will convey with the home, has been tastefully chosen to match the room, the view and the fireplace in design and color.
The main floor is a spacious area which is perfect for a couple with the master bedroom, kitchen and main living space. The floors above and below add ideal space for kids, guests and entertaining. There are two bedrooms above and another large bedroom downstairs; the downstairs area also has a huge (23’x23’) game room. A two car attached garage is on the main level.
The well landscaped yard also has a big grassy lawn.
The home alone, situated as it is, would be a fantastic place but what makes this such a truly special offering is the neighborhood. Catawba Falls Preserve is a nature lovers paradise. In just one afternoon amorous turkeys blocked the road, a doe snorted her warning and as dark fell a whippoorwill sang his summer song just below the deck. There are miles of trails and the roads, little used, are perfect for walking. I do not know how it could be better for dogs or their masters.
Is $699,000 really a great deal for the home on nearly seven acres? If custom log construction currently costs about $175/s.f., then the home alone should cost about $780,000 just to build. Add to this grading and paving the drive, grading the home site and front yard, installing a well and septic system and landscaping. How much, in ‘normal’ times, would a seven acre home site cost which is bordered on two sides by crashing water with the other side presenting world class views? All of this is in an upscale neighborhood with underground power, paved roads, and the protection of a gate. To top everything, the fine furniture, chosen to fit and match perfectly, completes the package. All you will need to bring are milk, eggs, bread and a toothbrush. A great book might be fun, too.
Please call now - we believe the home is priced to sell quickly and I want to make sure you do not miss out if this opportunity has any chance at all of working for you.
