Lakefront Cottage on Lake Sequoyah in Highlands, NC

                                    Turnkey- It’s cooler by the lake

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. If you have been looking for a place in Highlands, NC to have cabin rentals, this is the place. 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 turnkey ready for you to take the helm.

FACT: This is NOT a distress sale and while the new price is still negotiable, there isn’t much wiggle room, why? Because the sellers have already done all the wiggling for you.

FACT: TURNKEY- Have you priced furniture, bed and bath linens, kitchen items, etc. lately? Although lending institutions aren’t in the furniture business, it’s a fact that a lot of homes in Highlands sell at least partially furnished- this one is being sold with EVERYTHING! The bank may want you to write the offer with verbiage saying that any personal property has NO value, you and I probably agree that there is significant value in furnished homes. That value just can’t be considered part of the purchase price.

FACT: This home is in a residential zone (R-2) and has a letter of approval from the Town of Highlands for short-term rentals. The sellers have this home in a rental program, but they also spend their summer months here. Yes, you can do both. Live in this house year-round if you want or rent it when you’re not here.

FACT: This is a three-bedroom/two-bath home on two levels. The septic system was enlarged for a four-bedroom capacity.

Want to drive before you buy? It’s available to rent for a weekend or week after mid-September, but… you may not want to wait that long to see it and make an offer.
