This tiny house 15 miles outside of Burnsville, NC, offers a buyer a serene country getaway in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains

“People that want privacy, someone who likes the simple life,” would feel right at home in this 400-square-foot, one-bedroom cabin, says listing agent Connie Ray. The house is listed for $ 119,000.

Lovers of the outdoors will also be enamored with the surroundings, with more than 100 miles of hiking trails plus opportunities for fly fishing. Ray notes that the house adjoins a nature preserve and sits on a little less than an acre of land at the end of a road.

“The Blue Ridge Mountains, the highest peaks in the East, are right there where this is located,” says Ray. The area around Burnsville is often called the gateway to Mount Mitchell, the highest peak in the Eastern United States.

Burnsville is also known for its Mount Mitchell Crafts Fair in August, which attracts more than 200 exhibitors annually. Its Parkway Playhouse has been staging shows for 61 seasons, and there’s also the historic Nu Wray Country Inn, which opened in 1833, a year before the town itself was founded, and was a stopping place for such notables as Thomas Wolfe, Elvis Presley, and Christopher Reeve.

“Burnsville is a real sweet, little country town,” says Ray, whose family has lived in the area for several generations.

And this tiny home comes with a bonus! There’s a second structure on the property that the owner had planned to build out as a larger cabin. Ray says permits have already been pulled and blueprints created, so a new owner could finish it as a residence and keep the tiny house as a guest cottage. The second structure has space for a two-car garage and a loft.

Or someone could choose the simple life in the tiny house. The first floor features a kitchen with a granite-topped island, double sinks, wooden cabinets, a dishwasher, a range, a microwave, and a full-size refrigerator.

Also on the first floor are a wood-burning stove and a full bath with a footed tub. There’s also a gas wall heater, so the cabin could be used as a year-round residence, Ray says. A loft bedroom completes the living space.

“For a little cabin, it’s cute as can be,” says Ray. “It would be a great vacation home for the summer for someone who wants to get away from the city.”
