About the Property

2500 Sqft, 3BR, 2BA. Lake Views With Lake Access

Welcome to your three bedroom, two bath, home away from home! Nestled on a mountain overlooking Watauga Lake and the beautiful Blueridge Mountains it offers truly breathtaking views from the 900+ square foot deck. Less than a mile away is a private lake access and boat launch area that provides easy access to the pristine waters of Watauga Lake. You won't be disappointed with the immaculate attention to detail inside the home either. With wide plank hardwood floors throughout, granite counters, leather furniture, gas stove, two gas fireplaces, cathedral ceilings, and more.

The three bedrooms include a large master with king bed, it's own gas fireplace, and sliding glass door to the deck. The expansive master bath includes a Jaccuzzi tub, separate tile shower, double vanities, and a walk-in closet. The second bedroom offers a queen bed while the third provides two handmade rustic log double bunk beds. The shared bathroom is tiled with double vanities and a tub/shower combo.

To round out the experience the house includes a 42' HDTV with Wii game system, DVD player, Satellite TV, and Roku Internet TV. An outdoor gas grill, kayak, various blow-up water toys, and life jackets are also included. Scroll down for all the details on what this home has to offer!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Our family of six lives in Charlotte, North Carolina. When we vacation to one of the amazing places this earth has to offer we have a tradition of asking the locals where they go to vacation. If you already live in paradise, where in the world would you vacation to? Well folks in Hawaii said Fiji, and folks in Boone, NC said Watauga Lake. So when we were looking for a vacation home of our own to serve as a place of respite and rejuvenation, we started that search in Watauga Lake. We couldn't be happier with the amazing home we are now blessed to be able to call our own!
