This South Mountains Retreat is unique in that it is a private homestead situated within the South Mountains State Park here in North Carolina.  South Mountains State Park is the largest state park in North Carolina, encompassing 19,830 acres with elevations up to 3,000 feet.  This private estate is accessed by crossing over the state lands to reach it.  In fact, it has its own private gated access and upon entering you’ll see the NC Park sign saying “Entering South Mountains State Park”.  Its not often that you can drive through your own entrance across a state park to get to your property.

Once you reach the 16 acres, you’re in total privacy and have 19,830 acres at your doorstep.  There are a couple of other small private holdings nearby, but this is the only dwelling and therefore there is nothing but peace and quiet.  No one is going to ever know you’re there.

The house was built and expanded through the years into the three bedroom two and a half bath home that it is today.  There is a large, vaulted great room with wood stove and transfer switch and wiring for the installation of a whole house generator.  A gas log stove is also included fueled by propane.  There is a large covered porch and enclosed sun porch off the Master Bedroom on the main level.  Two small outbuildings provide storage of tools and equipment.  Original heart pine floors are found in the kitchen and its vaulted dining area which rises to a finished loft overlooking from above.

For someone looking for complete privacy, this property provides, however, it is just fifteen minutes to a Walmart and about 20 minutes to downtown Morganton.  Call us today for a private showing.
