85 Naiad Terrace Highlands, NC 28741
First time on the market in almost 50 years! SO many wonderful memories have been made here, and now it's time for the next generation. Two-level, lakefront home with a covered porch to view the lake in any kind of weather. The living area on the main level is all open, great for gatherings. 3BR/2 baths on the main level, and 2BR/1 bath on the upper level. Smaller family room on 2nd level as well as 'the dormitory,' a large room with a bathroom and used to be lined with twin beds and used by the family for decades for visiting grandchildren, now it is used for storage, but it would also make an excellent library or home office. Wood floors and pine paneling complete the lakehouse effect. There is a stone wood-burning fireplace in the main level living area and windows all around to let the outdoors inside. A small path down the hill to Lake Sequoyah, where you will see an old boathouse and a small beach area, large enough to tie up a canoe or kayak. This home is on a one-lane, one-road subdivision and is in the town limits of Highlands, NC recently named #5 in a Top Ten list of best places for small-town shopping in 2022! Just 1.5 miles to Main Street, you will have not only shopping but some of the best dining experiences in ANY town. This home is ready to be enjoyed THIS year, but most people will be eager to roll up their sleeves to make some repairs and updates. About that beautiful lake: Lake Sequoyah was formed in 1927, which may be about the same time Naiad Terrace was formed. We have a copy of the J.E. Root survey made in 1927 for S.T. Marett in 1927. Lake Sequoyah does not allow gas-powered motors, but there are plenty of canoes and kayaks which seem to glide across the waters. The drinking water for Highlands is supplied by Lake Sequoyah and Big Creek. You can fish, but the water may be too cold to swim. This home has been in the Chambers rental program since 1995,but some of our renters have been renting this home for over 30 years. Don't miss out!
