COTTAGE CHARM just 4 miles from downtown Highlands, NC! Welcome to Hickory Knut Cottage – your 1950’s getaway cabin in the quiet Turtle Pond area of Highlands. Vintage charm abounds – from the hardwood floors throughout, to the board & batten siding, to the farm sink in the kitchen. Make family memories in the cozy living room with beam-style ceiling. There’s a bath on this level with a retro tile shower for guests. Take a few steps down to the bedroom suite where you’ll find a large, cheerful room with brick “fireplace” decor for ambiance. An adjoining en-suite bath boasts vintage cast-iron sink & tub. The cabin is located on 2 small lots adjoining both USFS lands and a charming stream. There is room on the lots to expand parking for your visiting guests. The garage is ideal for storage and holds the washer/dryer spot. This adorable “cottagecore” home has so much potential and is priced to sell quickly as-is. (Buyer to inspect… most likely CASH ONLY due to the extensive expected repairs.) Ideal investment for a handyperson… bring this beauty back to life and enjoy the Highlands lifestyle!
