Wonderful large lake home for family and company gatherings! Unique and quaint in so many ways! The house sits on 18 wooded acres on Lake Hickory and Drowning Creek (really? Who named that creek?) for a quiet, rural setting. The house sits on a hill with a short, but steep, walk to the lake (or take the little road down for an easier walk). The lake is hard to see from the house in the summer because of all the trees.
The house features 2 Master Bedrooms (1K/1BA, 1Q/1BA) for maximum privacy that are attached to the home with a covered walkway. The main house has 2 bedrooms (1Q&2T/BA and 1Q&1T/BA), a bunk room (2 built-in bunk beds), and a 3rd floor tower (2T BUT accessible only by a ladder). We also have 3 outdoor showers.
The fun never ends with a enormous separate garage that features basketball, foosball, pool, ping pong, darts and other games. There is a bocce court and horseshoes close to the main house. There is also an outdoor fire pit in front of the house and another one by the lake.
A railroad track runs at the bottom of the hill next to the lake. The train runs a few times a week (during the day) and we love to wave to the engineer for a horn whistle. The track really gives the property a cool vibe!
This is a one of a kind great place to relax and enjoy family and friends!!! A true retreat!!!

Our home is located near Hickory, NC. We are about an hour away from the mountains of NC - both Asheville and Blowing Rock for great hikes, shopping, and other attractions. We are a little over an hour from the Charlotte Airport. A car is necessary as this is a rural setting.
There are mountain bike trails 10 minutes from the home. There is a marina to rent pontoon boats or bring your own and keep at the dock.
Hickory has several wonderful restaurants. They also have a nice science center and art museum.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: Our families are best of friends...FRamily. We have enjoyed sharing this home and creating great memories. Hope you will too!
Why the Owner Chose Hickory, NC, USA:
We wanted a place to gather that was stress free and gave us a great platform to just be together. There is a ton to do....or just chill in a hammock. All good.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The home is unique in many ways. The third floor tower with twin beds in only accessible by a ladder built with metal pipes (it is a great view when you get up there). The bunk beds are also built into the wall. There is a big glass garage door that opens to the screen porch to make the entire downstairs feel like the porch. The outdoor showers are terrific...if it isn't freezing outside! The property sits on a hill next to the lake. There is a train track that runs below (but it only runs a few times a week and during the day so it will not wake you at night. We look forward to the train coming through on the rare occasion and wave to 'Mickey' the conductor!). With both the lake and creek next to the property, many water options are available.
