Rare opportunity: Assumable Mortgage at 2.875% + STR revenue estimated at $40-$50k! Sitting on 1.9 gently sloping acres, surrounded by mountain views and the sounds of Laurel Creek cascading nearby, this property is a slice of Appalachian heaven. Offering 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, an open-plan kitchen/living area, formal dining room and separate den all on one level, there is ample space for the whole family to spread out. The granite countertops, engineered hardwood floors, central AC, and wood burning stove in the Great Room add to this home’s charm. Recent improvements include fresh paint throughout the interior (2024), new dishwasher (2023), and new dryer (2022). Outside you'll find even more to love! The spacious yard offers plenty of room to play, abundant potential for gardens or animals, or you could expand the existing apple & pear trees to create your own mini orchard. The 18’ x 36’ in-ground swimming pool will delight lap swimmers and recreation lovers alike. With a sunny, south-facing aspect, new pump in 2024 & heated via Carolina Woodstove, this recently serviced gem is ready for new owners’ enjoyment. Alternatively, cover it with a deck to create more outdoor living space! A tiny family cemetery (0.026ac) sits out of sight at the top of the property, where a storage shed for tools and pool toys obscures it from the home’s view. Long and short-term rentals allowed. No POA or restrictions & located on a state-maintained road. Just moments from local swimming holes and Watauga River put-ins, and about 20-25 min from both Boone and Banner Elk, this property boasts the perfect blend peaceful country living with easy access to all the High Country has to offer. Seller is motivated, so come check it out today!
