SKIS, PEDALS 'N PAWS - SKI IN SKI OUT
This cozy 4 bedroom/3 bath home has just had some major updates done- new outdoor siding, new stone work on outdoor stairs, new flooring in living room and kitchen, new refrigerator and washer/dryer, updated shared bathroom, and new bench in living room. It is located within walking distance of the ski slopes through the path (226 feet) or down the backyard into the new Terrain Park, hiking trails (.3 miles), dog park (across from Fred's), various restaurants, and Fred's General Mercantile (.5 miles). Once you arrive, you can relax and put the car keys away! Two parking spaces are conveniently located right outside the house.
The upper level of the home consists of one bedroom with bunk beds and a full bathroom. The loft has a flip game table that allows you to play pool or air hockey! The lower level has two bedrooms with a queen size bed each that share Jack and Jill bathroom. The master bedroom in on the other side of the lower level and has its own bathroom. The living room has a gas fireplace with a couch and love seat as well as a comfy rocking chair. A stack-able washer and dryer can be found in the utility closet right off the kitchen, which has been recently updated and is fully stocked. The mudroom is right off the kitchen with a door that leads to the fenced-in doggy area (there's even a doggy door) . No more freezing morning walks to take the dogs out - you can just supervise them from the warmth of the mudroom or kitchen windows.
As you exit from the living room area, there is large deck area with a 5person hot-tub and gas BBQ for everyone to enjoy. A bird feeder attracts some of the most beautiful birds in the area.
For activities other than SKIING and/or MOUNTAIN BIKING, exit the neighborhood on Skiway Road and take a short walk on the wide shoulder of Highway 184 to Overlook Trail, a .4 moderate HIKE that ends in Perry Park. There you can picnic while taking in the beauty of the waterfall and pond. If you cross Tamarack Road across from Perry Park, you can begin Upper Pond Creek Trail called Beech Mountain's favorite trail, a one mile easy hike ending in Lake Coffey. This can easily turn into a full day of family fun!
A half-mile walk to Fred's for a quick lunch of their famous Chili will have you ready to cross Highway 184 for a visit to the recently built DOG PARK! Two large running areas are available for small and large dogs as well as sitting areas for owners to relax and take in the view.
Ready for an afternoon of ZIP LINING, TUBING, or RAFTING? A short 17 mile drive to Hawksnest or 25 miles to Boone, will have you on an adventure ride of a lifetime. How about HORSEBACK RIDING? Banner Elk Stables are 8.5 miles away from your doorstep and are open year-round. On the way back from riding, a quick stop at the TROUT FARMS on NC-105, will ensure a great ending to a fun-filled day.
