Log Home 7.46 AC, 2500 SF, MOM, Carport, 3BR/3.5BA. Open floor plan with full-finished walkout BSMT and wood burning FP, year round view. This unassuming cabin is fully loaded. Inside, a fully equipped kitchen has granite counter tops and oversized island. Beautiful wood flooring reflects the warm honeyed tones cherished by log home owners. Lovely cultured stone surrounds the wood burning FP, a cathedral ceiling frames the view shed for stupendous sunrises. Each interior door is solid wood, with beautiful upscale hardware. Everything has been carefully considered, here. This home could have 3 masters, with one large bedroom on each floor. MOM has a walk in shower, and double closets. The full finished, walk-out, basement has both a bedroom, a bathroom and a family room that's over the top and it's already been stubbed out for a wet-bar. Outdoors, the concrete drive is pressure rated for 5 rather than the standard 3PSI and utility pipes were set underneath before the concrete was poured. You'll find that drainage and wiring for electric has been well thought out. The carport, a rarity in this neighborhood, has storage above and lights, it is already wired for electricity. To the side of the house a concrete slab was poured for a storage room that was never finished. The plan was to have a hot tub too, and the water and wiring is there, as is the foundation. The house has recently been pressure washed in anticipation of the stain the buyer gets to select. Whether you want a light clear finish on your logs or a dark finish or something in-between the choice is yours. This home is perfect for year-round living, or a low maintenance retreat, in a scenic gated mountain community with paved roads and low HOA fees. Golden Valley Estates is a gated community with 132 home-sites and paved roads. Here you'll find a mountain setting with homes scattered sparingly in the forest. The 1100 acre foothills community is about ½ ways between Shelby and Marion, NC with easy access to I 40, I 26 and I 85.
