Why We Love It

1. Like New & Move-in-Ready.

This home was built in 2012 and still shows like new! The systems, the fixtures, the finishes ... they're all less than 5 years old and that means you can move right in and won't have to upgrade a thing!

2. An Entertainer's Kitchen.

If you ♥️ to entertain large groups of friends and family around the kitchen while you cook so you can always be part of the conversation then this home is sure to impress with its open concept Kitchen, Breakfast Nook & Keeping Room layout. There are few homes in the Rutherfordton market that offer this type of layout so check out the floorplan and pictures to see why this home's Keeping Room makes it unique & why we're calling this 'The Keeping Craftsman.' 

3. It's Large with a Great Layout.

This home is well over 3,000 sqft of above grade living area, has 3 bedrooms with an option to use an additional room upstairs as a 4th bedroom if desired plus a bonus room over the garage, media/rec room on upper level and has a formal dining room, keeping room off kitchen and breakfast nook in addition to the great room in the center of the main level.  With the bedrooms split between both sides of the main level and the upper level, plus multiple flexible use rooms on upper level this home has something for everyone.

4. Great Neighborhood. 

Located in West Gate Subdivision, one of Rutherfordton's most sought-after neighborhoods, this home is only 5 minutes to Downtown Rutherfordton, outside of city limits but still offers Natural Gas, Public Water & a great loop for walking/running!

What You Need To Know

Built in 2012, this home has all of the features you'd expect in a new home and still shows like new! It's located in a great neighborhood, West Gate Subdivision, near RS Central High School, Scoggins Seafood Restaurant & Mimi's Dario, and only 5 minutes back to downtown Rutherfordton. One really nice feature of this neighborhood that you typically only find in town is the Natural Gas service from PSNC which makes it affordable to have the tankless water heater, stove/range, main level furnace & gas log fireplace all running on gas!  

Main Level: 

You enter the home from the awesome stone covered front porch through the gorgeous craftsman wood door and are immediately taken back by the grand scale of the great room with its vaulted ceiling, gas fireplace flanked on each side by custom built-ins with a built-in above so you can hide the TV when you don't want to see it.  The open great room extends to the formal dining room off the left of the front entry. The dining room's coffered ceiling is a showpiece and will be a perfect place to host a formal dinner party or Thanksgiving feast!

To the right of the front foyer is a half bath for guests and a short hall leading to the master suite.  A tray ceiling, several large windows, and hardwood floors make this a great spot to retreat to at the end of the day or to start off the perfect morning! The en' suite bath offers a separate tile shower and jetted tub, dual vanities, large linen closet and an enormous divided walk-in master closet the size of most secondary bedrooms.

Off the great room is an Awesome kitchen, with an abundance of cabinets and counter space, stainless appliances with gas stove/range and a built-in desk area. A breakfast bar separates the kitchen from the breakfast nook and connects you to the keeping room with vaulted ceilings perfect to use as an additional family room or den, making it the perfect place to extend the entertaining space around the kitchen which we all know is the heart of an entertainer's home! You can also access the composite back deck from the breakfast nook which is convenient when grilling your favorite steak!

Off the kitchen, you'll find a nice pantry, the additional 2 bedrooms on the main level, which share a jack-and-jill bathroom, as well as the full-size laundry room, exit to the double attached garage and stairway to the 2nd level. This back hallway is a perfect layout to come in from the garage and drop off dirty clothes and shoes in the laundry room before heading into the main living areas.  The main level is heated by a natural gas furnace and cooled with electric air. 

Upper Level: 

As you reach the top of the stairs you enter the media/recreation room which is a great place to hang out and watch a movie, play a video or board game or sit and read a book in peace and quiet away from the rest of the house. 

There's also an office space that could easily double as a 4th bedroom suite (although the septic permit was originally done as a 3 bedroom layout) because it has a closet, egress window and access to a full 3rd bathroom on this level. 

There's a large bonus room that could have numerous uses as an exercise room, craft or sewing room, home office if you needed a 4 bedroom layout and didn't use the other room on this level as an office. Rounding out the upper level is attic access with some floored storage area and easy access to the mechanicals of the upper level.  The upper level is heated and cooled with an electric heat pump.


This home has Craftsman detailing on the exterior facade with stone, Hardie-Plank fiber cement siding, as well as brick along the foundation. The front porch is covered in stone and makes quite the statement as you round the front concrete walkway and approach the front door. The landscaping is mature and well manicured and the front yard gently slopes back towards the road. On the left side is a concrete driveway leading to a double attached garage. Off the rear is a composite deck overlooking a nice backyard that would be the perfect place for a swimming pool just off the deck (the septic system is located in the front of the home so that won't be in the way of the pool!)

Overall, this home offers a lot of living space in like new condition and is move-in-ready. If you're an entertainer and want to be in a great neighborhood close to Rutherfordton but not in city limits then we think you'll love it!
