This home belongs to a local family who originally bought the property in 1999. There was an old Lake Burton style fishing cabin on the lot, which the owner's lovingly called 'The Shack'. Expanded and upgraded for a growning family with a new home in 2005, it still retains that name - you'll notice the sign as you drive up.
Lorie Thompson purchased this house in 2005
This home offers the best of all worlds; a private setting on a dirt road that beckons you for a mornign walk, only steps to an afternoon of Lake Burton swimming and skiing and evenings spent around the firepit. All while enjoying luxurious surroundings!
