If your dream is to live on "Cloud Nine", this lovely home provides the ability to live a resort mountain lifestyle. Located in Highlands NC and only 350 yards to the front door of the renowned Skyline Lodge and Oak Steakhouse, recently named Travel & Leisure magazine's second most "Favorite Resort in the Southeast 2023!" Residing just shy of 4000 feet altitude and outside of Highlands' town limits, an owner can choose to live on the main floor with its 2 bedrooms and living space, while hosting guests on the lower level which contains 1 bedroom, 1 bath, and a bonus room with wet-bar and refrigerator. Off the back of the main level, a large multilevel partially covered deck provides extensive outdoor living space with fire table and a long-range view of Billy Cabin Ridge. The lower-level patio gives garden views and lots of privacy. New shiplap ceilings, bathroom updates, LED lighting, and fresh interior paint make the home ready for immediate enjoyment. An oversized carport designed to accommodate a large vehicle (drive-in dimensions 8'10"H x 12'W x 23'L) means you can park something as large as a Sprinter Van and keep dry. An encapsulated crawl space is a nice feature too. Quality, convenience, price, functionality, and climate all make this home a must-see!
