What you’ll find at the end of a level road is this home with many impressive features. Where to begin describing it… when you step inside you’ll admire the post & beam style construction along with a passive solar design. The hardwood floors are oak on the main floor, and hickory on the second floor. The spacious great room has a wood burning stove, built-in bookcases, natural light through windows and sliding glass doors. An eat-in kitchen offers cherry cabinetry with glass front cupboards above the tile countertop, and a pantry. If you must do dishes… you’ll enjoy the view from the window above the sink (it’s a little detail that’s important to some people)! There’s enough space in the great room for a dining area, too!
There are two bedrooms on the main level, one of which is currently used as a home office and includes a separate entrance from the deck. The full bathroom on the main level has may bring back memories of another time with the claw foot bathtub. It’s a spacious bathroom with a separate shower, several windows to open when you’re taking a soothing and relaxing bath in that tub! The laundry/mud room is also spacious, has a coat closet, and the washer and dryer convey with the home.
Upstairs is a generously sized room, with a nook that is a great place to put a rocking chair and enjoy the outside view. The half bath has been plumbed and is ready for a tub, shower, or both!
When you return outside you might consider placing a couple of rocking chairs on the front porch! You’ll notice that the home has a southern exposure which is a desireable feature when living in the mountains. There is a garden area, and several outbuildings which have been used in a variety of ways, including:
- workshop (wired for electric)
- wood shed
- chicken house
- garden/storage shed
- metal building with roll-up door suitable for garage (one small car), wired for electic
- little house amongst the trees… “like” a tree house
The water source is from one of multiple springs eminating from the wooded acreage, which also has seasonal streams. The woodstove heats the great room area, and a mini-split system provides heating and cooling for the first floor. The propane tank provides the fuel source for the gas stove/oven in the kitchen; hot water heater and dryer are electric. The home has been prepared for solar energy for hot water heating, and is prepared for radiant floor heating in the tiled areas (bathroom and laundry).
Most of the 18.5 acres is wooded and affords you lots of privacy, exploring, and hunting options, too. This is unrestricted property, no H.O.A., or dues associated with them!
You’ll appreciate the level gravel road and driveway access leading to the home just a short distance from a state maintained paved road. There’s even a convenient general store nearby to save you a trip into town, or you may enjoy having a simple lunch there with other local residents.
The home has wireless internet connected through the local phone company Frontier, and satellite t.v. is available.
This home has several potential uses such as: mini-farm, permanent, seasonal, or vacation residence, or an income producing vacation rental. The proximity to the quaint mountain town of Hot Springs is desirable for vacation rental use as this area is popular for outdoor recreation such as rafting, hiking, fishing, and simply an escape to a slower pace for vacations or weekends. The nearby Meadow Fork stream is stocked with trout for anyone that wants to have quick access to fishing. Max Patch Bald with it’s tremendous views, and access to the Appalachian Trail is less than 10 miles.
