Step out onto the front deck for the most stupendous knock-your-socks off, breathtaking view in the High Country of NC's western mountains. You'll want to stay & stay & never leave. At 4400' plus elevation enjoy cool summer days with cool breezes, free from insects. Watch the sun rise over multiple layers of ridges to the east. Gaze at multiple ridges -- far too many to count -- extendong far distant into TN and VA. When you do come inside, you'll experience a comfortable, pleasant home, easy to live in, always a joy. Updated stem to stern, hardwood floors grace the kitchen, living room, & dining room. Hypoallergenic carpet covers the bedroom floors. Ceramic tile lines the bath floors. You'll delight in the new sinks and vanities, and the Kohler jetted tub surrounded by tasteful forest tiles. Large windows stream in light with a vaulted ceiling to increase the spacious feel. The deck is only one place to enjoy the stunning view --relish it from the kitchen, dining room, living room, and perhaps best of all from the master bedroom. Desire peace and total quiet in the mountains? This home in a gated community is for you. Yet only 7 minutes to downtown Boone.
