Lakefront Bungalow & Boathouse

Great Potential & Priced to Sell on Lake Summit


Take a closer look at this charming bungalow with incredible views on Lake Summit.  The property offers a prime lakefront location with large recreational area, two-slip boathouse and wonderful swim area.  The cottage is in need of some TLC, but it boasts lots of potential and is priced to sell quickly.

The Residence | With its outstanding location on the lake, this cottage has plenty of potential.  Located on the most desirable section of the lake, the cottage features an open floor plan with living room/kitchen/sunroom and large master suite on the main floor; guest rooms, second bath, and laundry on the ground floor. Parquet type flooring is throughout the house.   The previous owner installed an exterior elevator.
Living Room | This inviting room, located on the main floor, opens to the kitchen and sunroom. The walls and cathedral ceiling are wood.  A wood-burning fireplace is on the sidewall and the front opens to the large sunroom. A deck runs along the entire front of the house and provides the perfect spot to enjoy your rocking chairs and view lake activities.
Kitchen & Dining | Updated in an earlier renovation, the kitchen features a cook island and breakfast bar and lots of storage cabinets. Range and dishwasher are included. One side of the sunroom is designated for dining and opens to the kitchen.  Enjoy the great views of the lake while dining.
Master Bedroom | The master bedroom is located adjacent to the behind the living room.  The master suite features an oversized bedroom with walk-in closet, and tub/shower with vanity area.
Guest Rooms | On the ground floor, two bedrooms with lots of built-ins and a Murphy bed in one of the rooms provide a relaxing getaway for guests.  A bath with shower and vanity is located just to the back, next to the laundry room.
The Boathouse | The two-slip boathouse offers a wonderful waterfront location with rock walls, large recreational area, great swim area, and incredible views.
Lake Summit | Spanning about 300 acres with approximately 10 miles of shoreline, Lake summit is a very special place.  There are just over 250 cottages with boathouses around the lake; most used as summer getaways.  On the western end of the lake and along the headwaters of the Green River, Camp Greystone for girls, Camp Green Cove for girls and Camp Mondamin for boys have a long history as great summer camps.  Duke Power generates power from their hydroelectric plant at the eastern end of the lake.   The Green River is the main tributary for the lake, and with just one look into the water, you will know why it is called the "Green" River. Residents enjoy power boating, sailing, skiing, wakeboarding, kayaking, swimming, pontoon cruises and just sitting on the porch taking in the view.
The Location | Lake Summit has long been one of the most desired locations in the mountains.  Just 10 minutes from Flat Rock and 15 minutes to Hendersonville, Lake Summit is centrally located between Greenville, Spartanburg, and Asheville; each just about 35 minutes away.  The Asheville airport is an easy 20-minute drive.  The Charlotte airport is a 90-minute drive.
