1200 SF Log home with a big view, 2BR/2BA, lives large. 1.5 story upscale cabin offers the best in a weekend retreat or full-time escape. Between Charlotte and Asheville with easy access to I85, I40 and I26 interstates it's year-round accessible and an easy drive from several airports. Enter the house via a screened-in porch to the living room where a wow floor to ceiling view greets you. The area is open to the kitchen and dining area. With similarly sized bedroom on both floors either may be used for a master. A loft with a view may be used as a third bedroom, but it's a nice bonus with a fantastic view. Uncommon outdoor spaces add ambiance and more living area. There's a wonderful covered and floored space under the main deck where a cool breeze nearly always blows, an outdoor open patio with a fire-pit is a good place to gather under the stars. The cabin has nearly 1,000 square foot of decking on two levels. Underneath the house a storage room and neatly finished crawl space afford a handy workshop that even has a sink and toilet. Low maintenance landscaping complements beautiful hardscaping creating lovely areas with that rarest of mountain home commodities - parking. The Summit is a Fall Creek Development, a gated, solvent mountain community with paved roads and underground utilities. You'll love rural Rutherford County's Golden Valley Township. It seems like you're in a remote location, but it's only 17.3 miles to Walmart. Sunrises, worthy of a celebration, will be stupendous here, but of equal value are the spectacular moon rises and you'll have a beautiful deck to sit on while you enjoy the night sky in all its glory. A long range view will be enchanting year-round and there are views from every room. Low HOA fees and a slowly growing community make The Summit a popular choice. Proximity to the South Mountain State Park, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Grandfather's Mountain, Chimney Rock, Tryon International Equestrian Center, Lake Lure and Lake James means you'll enjoy Western NC's many summer attractions. But it's close enough to Beech Mountain for a day trip, if you love to ski. While we are surrounded by outdoor attractions there are a few things we lack: Factories, heavy traffic, stop lights, sky rise buildings and train tracks. The nearest shopping malls are in Shelby, but you can be at Ikea in Charlotte in an hour and a half. Internet is available via satellite and a network extender will boost cell service.
