Take a look at this new log cabin in the hills of western North Carolina, with beautiful mountain views, close enough to town for convenience, but far enough away for peace & quiet. Light restrictions in the beautiful community of Hearthstone Ridge protects your investment. Sitting on a gentle ridge, the back porch (screened-in) faces west-northwest, so beautiful sunsets will be an everyday part of your life. New construction log cabin priced to sell - below tax value! This genuine log cabin is 1,232 square feet of easy living. Outside you'll first see the gorgeous panoramic views. (They're better in person.) Layers of mountains are visible from this easy foothills location. Enjoy them with your morning coffee or evening cocktail. The land is moderately sloped, but gentle enough to garden, and it offers great access to the half-basement underneath the home - use the space as a garden center, a craft room, pottery studio, a tool room, whatever you like! Up on the main level, the split floor plan features a great room in the center of the cabin, with vaulted ceilings and exposed beams which keep a wonderful, open feeling in this cozy home. A maintenance-free gas fireplace adds to the ambience, and genuine hardwood floors are found throughout (except in the bathrooms and laundry room, where ceramic tile is used). The master bedroom offers a huge walk-in closet, a large bath with double vanity sinks, and from the bedroom, french doors open to the screened back porch. The second bedroom is located on the other side of the great room, along with the second bath and the laundry room. With easy one-step entry, it's living spaces are all on one level (great for those of us who are not so young anymore). Like every home in Hearthstone Ridge, this cabin is on its own individual well for water supply, so you'll be getting the clean, clear taste of fresh water, nothing added. Waste is handled by a septic system, and both are already installed - this cabin is ready for your furniture! Hearthstone Ridge is rural in flavor, where your horses or other grazing animals are welcome. Located north of the county seat, you'll cross a charming one-lane bridge over Cathey's Creek to gain access into the gated community. Rutherfordton offers grocery stores, award-winning health care, schools, banks, restaurants, drug stores, and anything else you might need. It's just a ten minute drive from the cabin, and larger cities like Asheville, are less than an hour's drive.
