Property description

*** CRAB CREEK HOUSE IS FOR SALE BY OWNER - THE OWNERS ARE MAKING A FINAL RETIREMENT TRANSITION. IF INTERESTED, PLEASE CONTACT US BY EMAIL OR AT 828-698-6691. ********

Now.... it can be your very own spot in the mountains of Western North Carolina. We are making a final retirement relocation.. Whether you would plan to use it as your personal vacation or summer home, retirement home, or full time home, Crab Creek House is wonderful and could be the perfect spot for you!

Nestled against a gentle ridge, Crab Creek House is situated in a beautiful, sylvan habitat and mid-way between Hendersonville and Brevard, NC. This welcoming, one-level, cedar-sided home overlooks Crab Creek, a native NC trout stream. It offers privacy and charm for your North Carolina mountain getaway.

You'll find a modern, well-equipped kitchen featuring a 'country' flair. It is equipped with everything you'll need during your stay. The dining area has a large bay window where you can watch for wildlife while eating your meals. The living room is inviting and tastefully decorated. The leather sofa is great for naps and comfortable chairs along with a few antiques add to its eclectic style. The natural stacked stone fireplace reaches up over 14' and in the Fall and Winter months, the gas logs add to the home's ambiance and create additional warmth and coziness. Two master bedroom suites, each with a private bath plus a third bedroom and adjacent bath, provide wonderfully comfortable sleeping options for guests. All 3 beds are queen sized. The home's split-plan layout provides complete comfort and guest privacy.

Crab Creek House is situated on 4 acres of woodlands. Crab Creek runs around or through the entire property, joining Mill Creek at the driveway bridge. If you're lucky, in season, you'll spot a brookie or rainbow trout. You might even surprise a blue heron. Sit on the front porch to enjoy the cool evenings of the mountains with your favorite beverage. Or, kick back, dig out that book you packed and planned to read while on vacation, curl up on the couch or pick a chair on the front porch, and start turning the pages. There is plenty to do and see....or keep that promise you made to yourself, and simply do nothing.....that's the great thing about vacationing at Crab Creek House.

This is the very special spot you've been looking for! Make Crab Creek House your 'base-camp' while you explore all the area has to offer. The location is perfect and provides convenience to local and regional attractions and community events. This is the perfect spot for your vacation or seasonal getaway. This house for all seasons will not disappoint you.

Location

Car: Necessary

CRAB CREEK HOUSE, located almost exactly half way between Hendersonville and Brevard, NC, is a non-smoking property. Located on a primary state road, access is excellent but just far enough from town to offer a private, country setting. CRAB CREEK HOUSE is not located in a subdivision and sits privately on a knoll in the woods about a tenth of a mile from the road. The location of CRAB CREEK HOUSE provides perfect and convenient access to the region, as well as its many community activities and events.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Larry and Donna Knott moved to the mountains of Western North Carolina from Hernando, MS (just south of Memphis, TN). When Larry sold his business, Donna, a native to NC, said 'let's go to NC!' Larry, a Memphian and retired stained-glass artisan, previously owned and operated a commercial stained glass studio in the Mid-South region (MS/TN/AR) . After relocating to Hendersonville, Larry opened and operated his second studio. He enjoyed being a 'gentleman glass artisan' until October of 2012, when he finally decided he was 'done'. He has since become interested in wood projects and has the opportunity to investigate whatever peaks his interest. He and Donna love for folks to drop in and visit. Donna loves gardening and decorating. You'll find her involved in hands-on projects of all types. Crab Creek House reflects her personal decorating touch and flair. We have truly enjoyed the opportunity of discovering new friends in the guests that have enjoyed Crab Creek House. Now.... it can be your very own spot in the mountains of Western North Carolina. We are making a final retirement relocation and have decided to sell our beloved Crab Creek House. Whether you would plan to use it as your personal vacation or summer home, retirement home, or full time home, Crab Creek House is wonderful and could be the perfect spot for you! Give us a call!
