Your Personal Walden. With a nod to Henry David Thoreau, more and more of us seek a simpler, healthier lifestyle and perhaps our own private land to aid in our personal declaration of independence. The challenge is finding the ideal property to match our lifestyle aspirations and still accommodate the demands of the modern world. When connecting with nature is a desire, not a chore, it is a message to find that special place. When memories rather than things become the real worth in life, a lifestyle change beckons. It’s not necessary to retire to the wilderness but rather find that sanctuary that will aid in coping with modern society; 990 Riverwood Lane in Lincolnton, NC offers that haven. Approximately 17 acres bordering the South Fork River with wooded areas, pastures and/or room for crops or your favorite animal(s) and a 5,379sf home. The home, originally built in 1953 has been renovated and updated several times to the current manor house for this estate, offering wood floors, plantation shutters, three fireplaces and so many other special touches. A gourmet kitchen with custom cabinets opens to a splendid tile floored solarium with a fireplace and three walls of windows, as well as a formal dining room, breakfast area and living room each with a fireplace. The main level split floor plan places three guest bedrooms with two full baths in a guest suite wing; the master wing on the opposing side of the home. Connecting the two wings are the primary living spaces, and a mud room and hallway with a spacious laundry room. The private master suite is expansive with bath, large walk-in closet and built-in desk area. A finished walkout basement level features an additional bedroom, full bath, bedroom/bonus room, utility room and large open area. A Several closets and generous storage areas can also be found; it is perfect for children or in-laws. There is so much room to satisfy your every need, including two sprawling second floor bonus rooms. The spacious three-car garage opens to a large motor court parking area. An adjacent courtyard opens to a cozy covered porch and the keeping room. Like the home, the property has unlimited opportunities for use. Adjacent to the back lawn, two large pastures and a run-in shed can easily accommodate your horse(s) or other animals. A path from the home winds through woods to beautiful bottom land, ideal for pastures, hay production or other crops. Continue on the path and walk or ride along the river under a hardwood canopy. Located on the “quiet side” of Charlotte, Lincolnton offers a distinguished downtown, engaging history and has maintained its small-town charm while providing big city opportunities. Hiking and horseback riding in the nearby South Mountains, sailing and fishing on Lake Norman, North Carolina’s largest lake, and close proximity to Charlotte, North Carolina’s largest city, makes Lincolnton a rare find. Surely, there is something for everyone here. Like Thoreau’s voyage of personal spiritual discovery, come immerse yourself in this stunning and unique property.

We were not optomistic that it would be sold at all when we put it on the market, but we decided to put it for sale and see what happened, obviously we are delighted with the result.
