I recently had the pleasure of attending a Broker Open House at a home in North Iredell County that impressed me so much that I asked permission from the Listing Agent (Nancy Phillips of Coldwell Banker United) to share this wonderful property in my blog. As an Accredited Buyer’s Agent, I always enjoy locating properties that are perfect for my buyer clients. I always start my search on our local Multiple Listing Service and browse through homes that somehow, look wonderful on the computer but often are disappointing when you actually preview the homes. I will be the first to say that photos can be so deceiving and hide many faults. That is not the case with the home at 607 Pisgah Ridge Circle in Statesville NC. This home was just the opposite! The photos did not do this home justice. It would be almost impossible to convey on paper how beautiful this home is and how much it has to offer for $545,900. I will do my best to set the scene for you……
I take a drive north on Highway 115 on a warm sunny spring day to put an Open House sign out on one of my newest listings at 247 Scotts Creek Road. A flyer on our office bulletin board showed a broker open house being held that day at a home just a little farther north than my listing, so I decide to check it out. I always like to know what homes are on the market and preview as many as I can for buyers. I drive out to Pisgah Ridge Circle and head up a long paved drive lined with day lilies and other perennial plants and drive up to this adorable restored 1931 farmhouse. This home is immaculate and looks like someone pulled pages straight from a decorating magazine and copied them into this home. EVERTHING has been updated to rival any new construction home but THIS one has tons of character! The views off the huge wrap around porches are breathtaking and the landscaping is immaculate. But this is just the beginning………
After touring the home, Nancy takes me on a tour of the rest of the property. Just outside the home we wander up to the first of many Bonus buildings that come with this home. A small shed with for storage or lawn equipment with an extended roof to park your tractor under. Continue up the gravel path just a little way and you find another small building that is perfect for a gardening shed or green house. But wait… there’s still more. Walk up just a little more and you walk into a huge barn with 5 horse stalls, hay storage for 1000 square bales, 60 ft. riding ring and a 36’ x 40’ covered equipment area surrounded by a 4 acre fenced pasture area for horses.
I know, you’re thinking, WOW, nice place right? Well, there is still more. Walk a little farther up the hill and you see a very large block building (by the way, all of these buildings are in perfect condition and painted a nice grey color to match the house). This 3200 s.f. building contains one of the largest workshops I have ever seen at a residence. This is a woodworkers or mechanics dream shop or maybe a huge art studio or recreation room. This building is only limited by your imagination! Ok, by now my head is spinning and I’m thinking, what a bargain, why has this place not sold yet? Then Nancy takes me to see even more….
How about a second residence! Yep, an old chicken coup that has been remodeled into a guest house or in-law suite. This one bedroom charmer is decorated as beautifully as the house and shows no sign of ever being a chicken coup. The final kicker….All this loveliness is overlooking a fully stocked 1 acre pond on 28 acres!
So I say once again…. This is one deal of a package for $545,900. Take some time and compare it to other homes in Statesville priced from $500,000 to $600,000. Your own mini estate with all the work already done for you! Just move in your furniture and some livestock, grab a fishing pole and take the day off. This luncheon was well worth the trip and I would like nothing better than to sell this property to a buyer that would appreciate it as much as I did. Call me today for additional information or for a personal tour. This is one of Statesville NC’s shining stars and hidden jewels – all in one!
Thank you Nancy for letting me share!
