Located in a new gated community, this large home sits on the edge of Lake James and the Fonta Flora Trail, minutes away from Historic downtown! Lake James has been voted the cleanest lake in North Carolina! The small community beach borders the property and has the perfect spot to swim, boat or just rest on the bench. The Fonta Flora Trail is in the backyard leading to miles of hiking or biking around the lake and through the woods. The home is located less than 10 miles from friendly Downtown Morganton where you will find a peaceful place to walk around and enjoy the shops and dining.
The home has tons of living space with 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, open concept custom kitchen, dining and living, a large back porch and a downstairs hangout with a ping pong table! There are plenty of small nooks to enjoy as well. The lower level is great to relax with the family and watch a TV while spreading out on the sectional couch, or a family Ping Pong tournament. Also on the lower level is a small office nook, a bar table under the back porch, and many resting spots along the Fonta Flora Trail. Enjoy all the area has to offer or just get lost reading a book on the back porch or on the bench at the lake.
The property is water front on the shores of Lake James and the easiest access point is the tiny county park that borders the property. As you walk through the back yard, you will find the 4 kayaks and 1 stand up paddle board next to the trail available to you during your stay! The county park has a small beach that is perfect for launching these boats or tying up your large one for the day! Or just run down with a float and hop into the lake for a swim!
The Fonta Flora Trail runs through the back of the property. Hop on for a quick hike or bring your mountain bikes and explore the 15 miles of completed trails! This local gem has views of Lake James, miles of woodsy exploration and some technical mountain bike features! You can also drive to the nearby Lake James State Park for some more technical trail riding on the Wimba Loops! The home has a stand alone bike rack in the garage so your bikes can be easily stored while you are riding.
Linville Gorge Wilderness Area is nearby and provides miles of adventure from hiking to rock climbing. For an amazing view of the lake, take the Shortoff Mountain Trail one mile uphill of hiking, and the views are spectacular. For less adventure, drive about 30 minutes to the Linville Falls Trails and you will see the beauty of the 45 foot falls with a few milder hikes to the different vantage points. We are avid hikers and happy to suggest more hikes in the area!
Looking for a little more relaxing, and less adventure? Take a step onto the back porch and sit on the back deck with your favorite book! There are multiple places to rent pontoons or charter a boat on Lake James. Live your best life as you boat through homes or pull the kids on a tube down the main channel of the lake, with mountain views all around! Or take a ride to Silver Fork Winery or Fonta Flora Brewery and taste the local brews. Downtown Morganton has many boutique shops, crafty art shops, fancy ice cream spots and a general store for perusal as your stroll to your new favorite restaurant.
Whether you are coming for biking, hiking, swimming, boating, fishing, skiing or just a relaxing weekend away, come and visit Edgewater!
You will be able to self check-in upon arrival. If you need anything, we're only a phone call or message away.
