Project Description

 

Prestigious Bowery Road in beautiful Highlands, NC

$1,195,000. MLS #100870

Homes like this rarely come on the market. Four acres +/- within two miles on Main Street, the grounds are a gardener’s dream come true; the workshop area is a handyperson’s dream come true. This unfurnished 4 BR/2.5 baths, farmhouse-style home is ready for memory-making with you and your family and has been meticulously maintained. If this home was renovated to current trends, it would be listed for well over $2,000,000. When you’re at this property, there is a sense of place, privacy, and of nature rarely found in a property this close to town. If you like to walk, although there are no sidewalks, Bowery Road is a wider-than-most-in-Highlands road, and if you really like to walk, about 8/10 mile from the driveway is the trailhead for the Coker-Rhododendron Trail which leads you to the Highlands Botanical Gardens, close to the trail to Sunset Rock, and on to town, library, churches, etc. This home has three levels (including the basement.) Although the home is large, it still lends a cozy feel. The living room has a gas-log wood stove, but at one time was a wood-burning stove. A certified chimney inspector would be able to tell you if it could be converted back to wood burning. There is electric baseboard heat throughout, but a gas furnace was installed to heat the main level. The kitchen is large and connects to the dining area. A half-bath is located near the center of the home in a private spot and near the entry to the basement. There is a bonus room on the main level which could be a nice home office area. There’s an enclosed sun-porch entry, perfect for plants, but also a great place to enjoy nature without venturing outdoors. The upper level has four bedrooms, a laundry area, and two full baths. The basement stairway has a chair-lift installed-making groceries a cinch to carry to the main level. Large workshop in the basement which also has car storage, and there’s a barn with lots of room for another car/lawn equipment. The grounds are a-m-a-z-i-n-g.
