This cute two-bedroom, one-bath home is ideally located in Highlands, North Carolina, sitting 4200 feet above sea level, with cool mountain breezes flowing year-round. This home's location, residing on a paved state-maintained road, provides easy access any time of year and enables it to be either a year-round residence or an investment property. You can access Highlands' high-end boutique stores and restaurants in under 15 minutes or big box stores in Franklin in 30 minutes - enjoy the best of both worlds! Continue what the owner started and ultimately transform this little mountain cottage into the getaway of your dreams! An open and bright living room and two spacious bedrooms with hardwood floors, all on one level with minimal stairs at both the front and side doors. The cozy, country kitchen could be renovated for a retro feel or a style of your choice. The full, unfinished basement could be finished to create additional living space or a workshop with level access to the backyard. A brand-new HVAC system was installed in the Fall of 2022. This location, situated on 0.65+/- of an acre, has plenty of room and sunshine for the avid gardener, too! And after a good rain, you can hear the wet weather waterfall on the property across the street (also for sale, see MLS #95273). Bring your imagination and check out the potential of this cottage on Buck Creek Road in Highlands, North Carolina!
