The Great American Hideaway isn’t exactly a dying breed — you can find authentic cedar board-and-batten cabins peppered around the lower Appalachians without tossing a stone too far — it’s just that they don’t hit the market very often. (And when they *do,* they can tend to be… a little too acclimated to the elements, so to speak.) Which is why it’s especially exciting to see 60 Sweetcreek Drive in the listings. This two-bedroom, two-bath was constructed in ‘95 and impeccably maintained ever since, so the only surprises are of the delightful variety: in addition to the bedrooms is a positively huge second-floor loft that offers stunning panoramic views of giant ferns and flowering hardwoods (which are also visible from the massive, freshly stained wraparound deck); Sugar Creek runs *through* the property, and even so, the entire 1.74 acres of land is entirely fenced in and ready for wandering dogs; heck, the land is located hardly 2 miles away from Blue Ridge itself — great for nights out and stocking up on supplies. Also noteworthy, is a laundry list of turnkey amenities that you would have eventually added anyway: The satellite TV. The hot tub. The Heatilator wood-burning fireplace. Loads of parking, in addition to the two-car carport. Even a wonderful interior color palette to tastefully offset the deep-set knotty pine. More recently, a private water well was installed on the property for sustainability, and a suite of new high-end kitchen appliances for the cook in the family. Not that modernization has infringed, mind you. Wide-plank walls and ceilings, barn doors, the vaulted roof in the main space, remodeled master bath… it all meshes together into something elegantly cozy. At this point, you’ve seen the pictures, and if you’re in love with the back-to-nature vibe, the close-in-but-far-away convenience, and are already imagining the sound of rainfall on the tin roof, there’s not much more that’s necessary to say. You can probably already imagine the earthy scent on the other side of the front door. Typically, properties like 60 Sweetcreek are held onto for the long run: passed down through the generations; you’ll find them for rent through property management agencies or aplenty on Airbnb; often, folks use them as home-aways, a welcome reprieve from the hustle of the metro, until they move in full time. So, for sale, and with the amenities found here? Elusive. And at this price point, 60 Sweetcreek will go pretty fast. Priced to bring immediate attention at $449,900; serious inquiries only.
