This lakefront home is affectionately named “Heron’s Landing,” as you’re sure to catch glimpses of Blue Heron coming and going throughout the day! Completely renovated with cottage style charm, the entire home is bright and friendly with large windows and comfortable sitting areas. The main floor living room offers a wonderful view of the cove and opens out to a covered porch where you can enjoy coffee in the morning or dinner at sunset. The porch also gives you a bird's eye view of the wildlife on the lake including ducks, geese, osprey, blue heron and water turtles. Almost every room in the house overlooks the lake – this includes two of the three bedrooms, both living areas and the kitchen.
The spacious TV room downstairs is the perfect place for kids to hangout when they're not in the water and leads out to a covered patio with chairs and a cozy porch swing. The downstairs bedroom offers a great view of the lake and a bit of privacy from the other bedrooms. The laundry room (with a full-size washer and drier) is also on downstairs level.
Located on a quiet secluded cove, the home is only a few hundred feet from a main channel. With limited water traffic, the cove is the perfect place for swimming, kayaking and paddle boarding. Two kayaks and a paddleboard are always available for guest use. The oversized dock is great for lounging, fishing, playing and tieing up your boat. A swim ladder provides easy access in and out of the water. Corn hole boards and a hook-ring-toss game are also provided. For some “alone time” escape to the hammock for a nap or retreat to the porch swing with a good book – both in the shade and both overlooking the lake. In the evening after a fun day on the lake, gather around the fire pit, and enjoy the stars!
In addition to the home’s many amenities, Lake Norman Sate Park is less than two miles away. The park offers 36 miles of mountain bike and hiking trails, a public boat ramp and a shallow wading area with a sandy beach for small children. You can also rent pedal boats and canoes at the park.
“Heron's Landing” is just a short drive to area shopping and a quick boat ride to popular waterfront restaurants and attractions. You’ll also want to try a couple of quaint Troutman restaurants while you’re here too.
