About the Property

4 Bedroom, 3.5 Bathrooms, Great Room and Play Room

"I'd take $200,000 for the house and turn down $1,000,000 for the deck" Dad used to say as we sipped bourbon in the cool of the evening watching the canoes across the lake.

After camping in their travel trailer for many years both over the road and at Land Harbor my parents bought a lakefront lot and built a house. When the house was finished there was a party and Mother named the house "Duncampen" as she was so pleased with her home and never wanted to see another travel trailer. If you are "done camping" you might enjoy a trip to "Duncampen" as well.

This house has so much to offer that you really need to see the pictures and the Land Harbor video to appreciate it. After the deck most folks talk about the dining room on the lake, a beautiful glassed room adjacent to the deck and the great room.

The great room houses the kitchen and the lovely solid cherry breakfast bar, a generous gathering area, and a sitting area facing the beautiful floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and 55" Smart LED TV.

The Kitchen is equipped with all stainless steel appliances including a very quiet dishwasher and disposal and granite counter tops. A separate ice maker is located to be convenient to the Dinning Room, the Great Room and the deck for added convenience.

The Master bedroom has a walk in closet, and a master bath with a two sink vanity, a large soaking tub with adjustable air/water jets, and a separate toilet room.

The guest bedroom has a double bed with a semi-private bath. The bathroom is accessible from the Great Room and the Guest Room.

The staircase between the Upper and Lower level of the house has a middle landing with casement windows at the top and at the middle for amazing ventilation. The walls and ceiling of the staircase were hand made of tongue and grove wood, built board-by-board by my father and then finished with a medium gloss clear varnish.

The lower level has two bedrooms, one with a 1/2 bath-utility room and the other a full bath. The Play Room is a large TV (55" smart TV) and a huge couch.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Charlie and Marsha Milford. We are retired, Marsha as a nurse and me as a business manager. We own the house with my sister and my brother-in-law. It was built by my father in his retirement years. We live on Lake Blalock in Northern Spartanburg, SC.

Why the Owner Chose Land Harbor, Linville, NC, USA:
It has been a big part of our lives. Our children slept in the loft above the kitchen and remember to this day their grandfather waking them with the smell of country ham cooking on the stove below. We have just completed fully updating the house with 2015 styles and know that Mother would love it. She named the home 'Duncampen' as she really was done camping! It is a lovely place to rest and a great spot to jump from. Either way, there is more to do in these wonderful hills than you will ever get done. Having guests share in the beauty of this place is a great joy of ours. It helps to defray the costs, but more than that the best is squeezing one more day of pleasure from this house for a growing list of friends of Duncampen. We have tried for nearly 50 years... first as campers and then at Duncampen.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Lots of space, great view and all the benefits of Linville Land Harbor for a very reasonable fee. The house has 4 bedrooms with beds for 8 adults, a large sofa in the play room, a medium sofa in the great room and a children's loft above the kitchen. As many as 12 people can sleep happily.
