Water-view home along the river with central AC, gas fireplace & screened porch

Overlooking the Tuckasegee River, this lodge-inspired home built in 2021 pairs nature's tranquil sights and sounds with modern comforts. After a day spent hiking and biking nearby trails or fishing along the river, settle into your screened porch that boasts comfortable seating facing the river. Tucked inside the community, you'll also find a riverside pavilion available for guest use. Grab a seat at one of the tables for an afternoon picnic and watch the stars come out in the evenings around the shared wood-burning firepit.

A stone gas fireplace sits center stage in the home's living area. Kick back with a vacation read or tune into favorite shows on the TV. Outfitted with stainless steel appliances, the well-equipped kitchen features everything you need to prepare meals. When it's time to eat, gather at the four-person dining table.

Beautifully designed and decorated, perfect for a weekend as a couple. Cleaned spotlessly, fantastic location.

There is so much to say about this home. We stayed extra after moving our Daughter into WCU(.5 mile from the school but feels like you aren’t even close). The home is new and fresh and was extremely clean! Nice space for a family of 4. The screened porch was nice to escape from bugs and to enjoy the sounds of the River flowing. It is a neighborhood and has full time residents so it was so peaceful and quiet the whole time. The home had enough of everything but not too much of anything(clutter, decor). The shower was great(no bathtub). I 100% recommend this home but there a few things I would like to point out, no W/D and mirrors were limited to the bedroom , I could only see above my shoulders. Not a big deal but still annoying. I hope to return one day soon!
