In a region rich with American Revolutionary War history, Kings Mountain, NC stands apart. Originally the settlement was called White Plains, but when the city was incorporated in 1874, the name was changed. It was decided that "Kings Mountain" would be a more appropriate name since the community was close to the historic battle of Kings Mountain. Coming after a series of disasters and humiliations in the Carolinas, the battle, October 7, 1780, was a pivotal moment in the history of the American Revolution War. The surprising, decisive victory was a great boost to Patriot morale. Names of the 900 Patriots at the battle, (including John Crockett father of Davy Crockett), now dot our maps and grace the pages of our history books. Many historians, including Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Herbert Hoover declared the battle of Kings Mountain as the turning point of the war. Hoover wrote, "This is a place of inspiring memories. Here less than a thousand men, inspired by the urge of freedom, defeated a superior force entrenched in this strategic position. This small band of Patriots turned back a dangerous invasion well designed to separate and dismember the united Colonies. It was a little army and a little battle, but it was of mighty portent. History has done scant justice to its significance, which rightly should place it beside Lexington, Bunker Hill, Trenton and Yorktown.” This same love for freedom and home has been passed along the generations, and when the C.S. Plonk family settled here that love for and stewardship of the land continued. Stand in the tree shrouded front yard of 2016 County Line Road, Kings Mountain, NC and you can view Kings Mountain in the distance. More importantly, view more than 109 acres of prime agricultural property that you can call home; a place you can make your history. Situated on a rise, under a tree canopy this well built and superbly maintained home complements the surrounding property. With copious fenced pastures, a large functional metal barn, board fence round pen and pasture run-in sheds, you can easily accommodate the animal(s) of your choice. The barn can be adjusted to 10 (10’x10’) or 3 (20’x24’) & 2 (12’x12’) stalls. Additionally, there is a large hay loft, shavings stall, tack room/workshop and adjoining trailer/equipment storage space. Add a fly mist system, exhaust fan and flood lights to the practicality of the building. The two run-in sheds (10’x24’ & 10’x30’) offer shelter for your animals; nature also provides shelter since nearly half the property is wooded and a section fenced. Two seasonal creeks also dissect the property. When you turn onto the long paved drive you are approaching an oasis perched on a hill, surrounded by trees. The drive takes you to the side-loading garage, or to the parking spaces in front of the home, or on around the home to the basement garage and the barn area, all peacefully situated in a grove of trees. No matter where you enter this home the quality of its construction and subsequent maintenance is immediately obvious. From the full front porch step into a parquet wood entry with sightlines to the family room as well as a living room/office and adjoining dining room. Warm and cozy come to mind when describing the family room. Exposed wood beams, chair railing and plush carpet set the tone, but a brick wall with an oversized fireplace surrounded by a reclaimed 100+ year wood mantel is the focal point. Move to the kitchen with 12” Mexican tiled floor, center island/bar, oak cabinets, pantry, breakfast area and computer desk. That same brick wall from the family room now houses a built-in oven and wine rack and serves as a backdrop for the stove and exhaust hood. From the kitchen you can move out to the tiled sunroom, with floor to ceiling windows, or through a butler’s door to the dining room. The main floor is completed with the master suite. This carpeted suite offers his & her walk-in closets, a tiled bath with 2 vanities, tub/shower and linen closet. Two guest rooms with a full bath are located downstairs. The central brick wall separates the two bedrooms, one with a fireplace, both with walk-in closets. A full bath has a tub/shower and linen closet. Opposite the guest rooms are a walk-out basement with mechanical room and large open area with a garage door. Well planned and built and meticulously maintained, in a private, serene setting, within sight of history, certainly an opportunity to make your own history.
