Come home to this charmingly updated 1939 2 BD/1 BA bungalow located on 1.58 acres and less than a minute from Interstate 40. Enjoy a private backyard, detached workshop/garage, and numerous updates including remodeled kitchen and bathroom, upgraded electrical, added insulation, updated furnace, new windows, and a new roof in 2014.

This home provides a quiet retreat and comfortable living in an intimate, welcoming space with lots of natural light. Return at the end of a long day and sit on the back deck to enjoy a glass of wine or a cold beer while looking out over a spacious yard and lush greenery. Wander over to the workshop to finish up your current project or start a garden in the sunny spot just behind. On the weekends, grab a bite in downtown Valdese or take the 10 minute drive into Morganton or Hickory for more restaurant and microbrew options. Take a hike at nearby Bakers Mountain or South Mountain State Park. 

I purchased this home in 1997 and have loved it ever since. From the oak floor joists that were cut at the sawmill that stood across the street decades ago to the four corners of the property that the house rests on, this home has taken good care of us. I would happily stay here until the end of my days, but life and work demand that I move further west. 

Don't miss out on this house! It won't last long!

Details to note:
-The fireplace is currently not functional. A previous owner cut out some of the firebrick liner to make room for a wood stove insert that did not work well. Restoring the firebrick or installing gas logs will bring the fireplace back to life.
-The house has both a cellar and a basement with separate entrances. The original cellar is under 1/4 of the house and holds the water shutoff and furnace and affords some storage. A previous owner had a full-depth basement put in under the remaining 3/4 of the house, set back from the original foundation by a couple of feet, which affords a vast amount of storage.
-The workshop roof is structurally sound but currently leaks a bit. It would benefit from additional flashing and a new layer of sealer. I typically put a layer of sealer on the roof each year, but have been off my normal maintenance due to work obligations.
-The workshop originally had a toilet stall which I removed, but it could easily be rebuilt. The toilet itself is sitting in the basement of the house.
-The workshop originally had a large garage door which I filled in with a stud wall and smaller doors. The structural support for the garage door remains, so a future owner could easily restore the workshop to a garage format.
-The stove, toaster oven, and dishwasher remain with house.
-The new berber carpeting has been steam cleaned at least once a year since it was installed.
-City water/sewer & trash/recycling curbside pick up.
