This cozy and spacious single story ranch home is bordered to the front by Chimney Rock State Park and the rear by the Rocky Broad River. The level lot features a large yard with easy parking access. Inside, comfortable furniture and an antique oak claw foot table enhance the large open living and dining area. The master bedroom has a king size bed and private bath; the 2nd bedroom has a queen size bed with an additional full bath close by. The efficient galley kitchen was completely remodeled in 2018 with new cabinets, granite counter tops, all new appliances and new flooring. It is fully equipped with pots, pans, plates, glasses, utensils, cutlery, small appliances & large. There is also a new mud room with a wet bar, recycling center, a 2nd refrigerator for you favorite beverages, and a new washer and dryer -- though if don't prefer to do laundry on your mountain vacay, we get it!. Instead, relax and dine near the river on the comfortable screened porch, and get even closer on the awesome riverside deck. From there you can enjoy the spectacular river breezes and mountain views on all sides! If you are lucky some of the abundant wildlife in the area will stop by. Watch for Blue Herons, ducks, wild turkeys, turtles, otters, bobcats, beavers, deer and lots of other critters that gather at the river. Head down a set of steps off the deck to get in there yourself to wade, swim, and do some amazing trout fishing! The Rocky Broad is known for its stocked trout in the upper sections near Bat Cave. The lower section, right behind the house, provides great smallmouth and even largemouth bass fishing in the mouth of the river where it empties into Lake Lure. Trout species that can be found include rainbow, brown and brook trout.
This a great place to enjoy the mountains, river and country setting.
