345 MALLARD BAYE ∙ RUTLEDGE ∙ OFFERED AT $724,900

This is only the second time this home has been on the market. The former home of Gordie Reed, a member of the American Power Boat Association’s Hall of Fame and holder of three World Records in Power Boat Racing, the home was purchased as a vacation home by a doctor’s family to use exclusively as a vacation home a little over three years ago. Rarely used, and with changing family priorities, the home is available for sale again.

The home sits on 0.77 of an acre with 172 feet of lakefront property. And, yes, the covered dock stays. The backyard is large enough to add a swimming pool, just as the neighbors have done recently. A Florida style design with a covered carport, the concrete driveway wraps around the rear of the home providing plenty of parking space for boats and/or recreational vehicles. 1,690 square feet of living space on the main level with an additional 1,690 square feet of basement. The home is being sold fully furnished, with just a few personal items that the family will keep. Three bedrooms and two bathrooms are on the main level. A covered main level rear deck provides views of Cherokee Lake, with the main bedroom also having its own private deck.

The basement is partially finished and includes two additional rooms recently converted into bedrooms. One with bunk beds as part of the furniture. That’s five bedrooms for large family lake gatherings. There is a bathroom in the basement as well. Please note there was remodeling taking place as the photos were taken. The rooms will be completed in time for the new owners to take over. The basement can be accessed through the driveway, no need to climb steps, and providing its own private entryway. The remainder of the basement has been used as storage and includes a garage door for easier accessibility. The roof was replaced four years ago. The home was painted three years ago. The heat pump was serviced this month. The home has had little use and is in fine shape.

So, bottom line, this property presents opportunities for the new owners. As a vacation rental it provides plenty of space for renters with five rooms of bedroom furniture. As a vacation getaway for the owners, it has all that you need for lake living. Or, as a full-time residence, it allows you to live the lake life fulltime.
