Short drive to Ashville.Located in northwestern South Carolina only 8 miles from the North Carolina border, this home was custom built in 2005. Supported by exposed white pine timbers and tongue and groove vaulted ceilings there's a rustic feel but with modern state of the art features. Inspected and certified as both an "Energy Star" and "Earth Craft" home, features inlude double pane, gas-filled windows, R-40 ceiling and R-28 wall insulation, and a 17 SEER Trane heating and A/C with a 7 1/2 year parts and labor warranty remaining. The exposed post and beam construction is highlighted by sheetrock interior walls that give greater flexibility in decorating. Heart pine, random width flooring covers the 14' x 32' great room, hall and large Master BR. Yellow pine flooring is in the 18' x 14' open loft overlooking the great room, the large open kitchen (with custom heart pine cabinets and Corian counter tops), and the upstairs bedroom and bath. The Master bath has cedar flooring to compliment the iron tub and separate shower. The lower level bedroom, bath, 12' x 14' rec room, and laundry are floored with Armstrong laminate. Approximately 700 square feet of unfinished basement has storage bins and shelves for crafts, etc. The exterior of the home is designed to enjoy the hardwoods, mountain laurel, and owner landscaping. Siding is Hardi-Plank for wear and safety. On the side of the house is a 12' x 44' open deck with cedar railing. At the rear of the main level is a 10' x 42' covered porch with cypress post and beam construction. This is the place to enjoy the sunsets over the 80 acre lake and the mountains of North Carolina. In addition there is a 10' x 52' covered porch on the lower level and a small entry porch in front . City water, county maintained street, neighbors that are close but barely visible make this a great place for a get-away from the city and even better as a primary residence. The community around the lake has an association to maintain the lake, boat-launch and picnic area and to set limited rules to assure a wholesome environment for all.
