All four seasons are a treat for the eyes here. Summer boasts wildlife, the lake is only one and a third miles down the road, wildflowers galore, lush vegetation. The change of colors in fall rival anything you might see in New England. Winter puts just enough ice around the babbling brook to make your pictures worth hanging. And Spring! Spring pops up overnight with the hummingbirds looking in the windows wondering when you're going to put out the nectar. The woods behind the house become so dense, you just have to cross the creek and explore. This home has a 7 year old metal roof, new gutters, a woodshed for the wood stove you'll want to use in wintertime, just for the ambience. Monitor heat warms the house if you don't want to use the stove.New double pane windows throughout including the sliding doors that go out to the new concrete patio which has privacy fence on road side. New refrigerator and stove in kitchen. Upstairs bathroom has new commode and shower and tub enclosure.
And coming soon, Mountain City (which is 12 miles away) will become the official US training base for the world famous TBB Iron Man Team and will be located approximately 14 miles from this home. Watauga Lake Winery is a quarter mile down the road. Doe Mountain Recreation Area is minutes away.
This place would make a wonderful summer home but is comfortable all year long. You are within minutes of 6 marinas, Watauga Lake is known for it's fishing, boating, and swimming. It has been said that it is the second cleanest lake in the country. It is breathtaking! You will be close to Mountain City, TN. (20 min.) Johnson City, TN (45 min.) and Boone, NC.(45 min.). This is country living at it's best. Home appraised 5 yrs. ago at $144,000. Too much house and property for me.
Look at properties in the area and you will see that this one is bargain priced. A lovely home and property but I am anxious to sell.
