Property Description

This spacious home is called "Herons Haven Lakeside Chalet". It has been a family home and successful vacation rental for the last 6 years and is located in Tobacco Branch Village "in the Great Smoky Mountains" - near Fontana Lake in western North Carolina. This property sleeps 10 and is being sold turn key/fully furnished and outfitted. The chalet offers two roomy living rooms with stone fireplaces, a dining area, and a large kitchen with granite countertops, an eating bar, and pantry. The owners suite with king bed offers an attached bathroom with walk in shower. The 2nd bedroom has a queen bed and two twins and a full bath across the hall. There is a queen sleeper sofa and full bathroom on the first floor and two more twin beds in the upstairs living area. You will love the lake views from the various rooms and especially from the screened porch, upper balcony, and deck with hot tub. The lake which is across the street from the house offers fishing and swimming and has a small dock for swimmers to enjoy. There is also a peaceful stream with waterfall feature that runs beside the house and under the deck. The property comes with a lot on the lake which you can have a gazebo or picnic table on for added enjoyment. This property is off a paved road with easy access and two large driveways, so affords tons of parking. Completely renovated in 2013 with a new metal roof, new drywall and recessed lighting throughout, new dual zone HVAC, new flooring, and completely renovated kitchen. The home resides in the quiet and peaceful community of Tobacco Branch Village. The "Village" is comprised of summer residents, a few full timers, and some vacation rentals. The neighborhood amenities include a stocked fishing pond, large picnic pavilion, and expansive grass field for recreation. The location is prime, just 5 minutes to Lake Fontana and Tsali Hiking, and 15 minutes to Bryson City and Nantahayla Outdoor Center. This property is owned by a licensed FL/GA realtor. What I love most about this home: The Lakeviews and wildlife on the lake (canadian geese and ducks) The peaceful sounds of the waterfall and stream next to the house. The floorplan of the house with the two living rooms. The two stone fireplaces. The Ease of Access.

Reason for Selling
We own 5 homes in this neighborhood and all are doing well. We are buying a home on Saint Simons Island GA. That is an hour from our house and we would like to use that and also venture into a new area. We will use proceeds from sale of this house we are selling to help fund house we are buying. This home we are selling is our largest property in that area and will help us afford the price point we will be in for the area we are buying in.
