Looking for a high quality home on high quality acreage in an easily accessible location?   Look no further.  This ten acre homestead is located just a few miles south of Lake James and southeast of Marion.  Its ten acres are mostly wooded, sitting high up on a knoll with wonderful views to be had in all directions.  Follow the gently sloping paved driveway from the state road to the top where you’ll find this outstanding home.

The house is of newer construction with a transitional/open concept design.  The main level features high ceilings with a vaulted great room and covered, screened porch on the rear.  A gourmet kitchen with walk in pantry and breakfast area is off to one side with two guest bedrooms and shared full bath.  On the other side of the house is the spacious primary suite with walk in closet and luxurious bath.  An oversized side entry two car garage is on the side of the house.  There is ample parking elsewhere for multiple vehicles if needed.  Click here for an immersive 3D interior tour of the house.

Down below is a huge open partially finished space encompassing nearly the entire footprint of the house.  There is a full three piece bath on this level and a very large room with walls and ceiling finished in sheetrock with recessed lighting and already heated and cooled.  This large area could be partitioned into other rooms or left as one giant great room.  The floor surface is the only thing unfinished as it is a concrete slab and ready for your finishing touch.  Step outside the back door onto a covered patio and a large open deck looking out in to the woods.

A large mechanical room is off to one side and could be used for additional dry storage of items.  With all this lower level space, one could create all manner of living or hidden storage places.

The land on this property is ideal for hunting as evidenced by the deer that are there nearly every time we’ve visit.  The land is mostly wooded and there is a well developed woodland road that leads in to other wooded areas that could be improved with additional dwellings if desired.  Access is very easy (no shared driveways or easements), yet the house is very private, sitting far off the road and at a higher elevation.  With just a select thinning of some of the trees, views toward Hawksbill and Table Rock Mountains can be achieved.  This is an absolutely delightful property.
