When you walk into this contemporary house of 2200 square feet, you are immediately drawn to the oversized greatroom. The entire back of the house is glass resulting in a panoramic view of the lake and equally as important, beautiful sunsets! Not only can you enjoy the views of the lake from the greatroom, you also have the same views from the master bedroom and the dining room/kitchen. The house is a beautifully furnished two bedroom house with a queen bed in each room (roll-away available). Off the master bedroom, there is a bathroom which has a separate shower and garden tub. Likewise, the second bathroom has it own bath which consists of a 5-foot shower. A stack washer and dryer is located in this area as well. A 1/2 bath is available off of the greatroom. Like to have a fire in the winter. A wood-burning stove is in the greatroom (uses fire logs). Directly behind the fireplace is the dining room with sitting for six persons. The dining room attaches to a kitchen which has all the amenities of home: a smooth-top stove, a dishwasher, a built-in microwave, and a full-size refrigerator.
Outside amenites include: a floating dock (where you can tie up your boat during your visit), a covered gazebo, floation for enjoying the water, a deck which surrounds the house on three sides, furniture for the deck, a picnic table and a gas grill outside the dining area, an oversized two-car garage, extra covered parking attached to the garage (parking for one-car), fishing poles, bicycles (2), a concreted driveway to the house as well as the parking area, a covered carport as you enter the lot for additional parking or for parking your boat (most boats fit). Also available for your enjoyment is a 16 foot canoe.
When entering the house from the road-side, you do not have any steps into the house. From the water-side of the house, when going down to the water, you do go down down a minimum number of steps to get to the water. You can go down the side of the house to get to the water with no steps. This house has a 1600 square foot basement which is not rented or occupied.
When you visit, you will feel as though you are in a 5-star hotel, only better, in that you have all the amenities of a home that a hotel can't offer. Another amenity is the location--To get to the home, you go down a 2 1/2 mile paved road which winds through the middle of 1300 acres of preserved forest. Wildlife is abundant in that their natural habitat has been preserved and it is not unusual to see the deer grazing by the road. Trails are available for you to walk or ride your bikes and observe the wildlife or just to enjoy the quietness of nature. Desire retail? You are within ten minutes from retail which includes Target, Home Depot, restaurants, Marshals, Bi-Lo, Harris Teeter, etc. Because Interstates 77, 85, 485 are near the home, you are able to get to uptown Charlotte within 20-25 minutes and to other locations around the city or surrounding cities such as Rock Hill, Gastonia, York, etc.

I am a retired school teacher/administrator of 30 years of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools. Likewise, my husband, Randy, was a civil service employee and was also in the military for over 42 years. Currently we are both retired (in name only!). Randy has a boat repair business and my business consists of making sure all my guests enjoy their visit on Lake Wylie.
Randy and I lived in this house right after we got married and a number of years thereafter. We then built another house on five acres up the lake and moved there (truth be known-my husband wanted land on which to drive his tractor!). After having several full-time renters in the house, I decided to put the house up for vacation rental since I had enjoy renting 'Griff's Place' (#142984) through VRBO, I had a gentleman who rented the house who eventually stayed 2 1/2 years when his job placed him in Charlotte. He had come on a temporary basis and decided he liked the home. Recently he got re-located and the house was open again. I decided once again to rent the house via VRBO. Why? All the years I have been renting through 'vacation rental,' I have met such wonderful people from all over the world.
It also brings me pleasure to know my home helped to make good memories for their family.
Will Randy and I ever move back to this home? I do hope to do so in the future. No matter where I have lived, this home remains 'my favorite place of all.' I hope you will think so at the end of your stay.
Welcome to our home.
