Weekend Retreat or Outdoor Enthusiast Dream HomeTrail Riding, ATV’s, Hunting and Lake Wateree Activities
Located just 1 mile from Lake Wateree, 15 minutes to the Equestrian Mecca of Camden and still only one hour to downtown Charlotte. This 2005 custom built Cypress home is nestled in the middle of 25 acres. The owners of this home wanted a log home, however, they didn’t want to worry about wood destroying insects and annual upkeep most log homes require, they chose to build with Cypress which is known as the “Wood Eternal”. They created a rustic, yet bright and welcoming home. Character throughout! Reclaimed 5” Heart of Pine floors came from an old Cotton Gin and Governor Mansion doors on the second floor are a nice touch of history. The open floor plan is ideal for entertaining. Friends and family can mingle around the chef or enjoy the views of the pastures, 4-5 stall barn and the distant hills from the large back deck. Welcome the breezes through the multiple sets of French doors all across the front of the house. A vaulted ceiling in the great room and wood beams in the dining and living room just adds that much more dimension and personality. The 11’ main floor and 13’ second floor ceilings create open & airy living spaces. The kitchen offers stainless steel appliances including a 5 burner gas stove and range with a Bosch exhaust hood, refrigerator with ice & water dispenser and freezer drawer and dishwasher. Cabinets are Poplar with Cherry inlays and are topped with solid Walnut counter tops. The moveable island can be positioned for many uses. Plenty of cabinets and an adjoining pantry/laundry room mean you can store your canned goods you harvest from your fruit trees and garden.
The original home plan called for the master on the main, yet the owners chose to utilize the second floor for the bedrooms which leaves you extra entertaining space on the main floor or room to add a bedroom, if desired. The cast iron wood stove is all you’ll want to use to keep the home warm and cozy in the winter months allowing you to keep power bills low. Two large bedrooms on the second floor have top of the world views. The guest bedroom has its’ own quaint bathroom with glass block and bead board accents. The second full bath on the 2nd floor was set up as the master bath. Soak away your aches & pains from the day of activities in the large garden tub or let the rain head in the tiled shower wash away the remnants of a great day outdoors.
Outdoor living at its’ finest. You will feel like you are in the mountains with the views from the large back deck and the private pastoral setting surrounded by hardwood forests, trails and creeks. Lake Wateree just a mile down the road will satisfy the fisherman or water enthusiast in the group. Ride the horses or ATV’s on the miles of adjoining trails when time allows. A new multi-level deck with built-in flower boxes and a stone fire ring along with the covered rocking chair porch is ideal for night time dining and entertaining activities. Rotate the horses on the pastures giving them access to the barn, run-in shed or shade trees. The work shop can be finished and/or converted for your purposes.
