Lakefront Cottage on Lake Sequoyah in Highlands, NC
Lake Sequoyah Retreat
What you’ve always wanted- a cottage on the lake! This two-level, turn-key home is in town and not only has a fantastic view of Lake Sequoyah, but the sellers made sure the access to the lake and private dock is as easy as possible. The main level has a fully stocked, renovated kitchen, one full bath, two bedrooms, and a large living/dining room with a stone fireplace that is wood-burning. There are several entrances to the spacious, covered porch with a porch swing, plenty of other seating, dining, and a gas grill. The grill is attached to the house propane tank, which means no more lugging those portable tanks around. The lower level has a large family room, one full bath, and two large bedrooms. The utility room is also there with the gas furnace and washer and dryer. The outdoor area is ready for you to enjoy the best of mountain life. An arbor leads you down the easy stairway to the lake where you will find a private dock and boat slip- perfect for your kayak or canoe. If you’re not into boating, enjoy the lake view from the covered deck, take a seat on the lake steps, or sit on the dock to get some sun. This property has three bedrooms, but the septic tank is for four bedrooms, so you may choose to add a bedroom. This home has a rental history, but not much because the sellers choose to live here half of the year, and you will also find that once you’re here, you won’t want to leave either. This home has no air-conditioning but has not been needed by anyone who has stayed there. Yes, it’s getting warmer every year, but Highlands, NC is still one of the cooler places in the south, where you’re meant to enjoy the outdoors as you live under the canopy of trees. So, have a mint julep, a glass of wine in the afternoon, or a cup of coffee in the morning on the porch while you’re wrapped in a good book and a comfortable light blanket. This home has been meticulously maintained and is turn-key ready for you to take the helm.
