About 168 Rainey Street

Say hello to this 1930's cottage in the heart of Downtown Blowing Rock. Its charm and character has been enhanced with a beautiful renovation that brought the walls down to the studs. The exterior has been preserved in a way that brings you back to the glory of old Blowing Rock, but once you step inside, you're met with the freshness of modern construction. The wide, light colored plank flooring throughout is a beautiful contrast to the original stone fireplace that stands at attention in the living room. The dining room is used as a functional lounge and additional sleeping area but can be reimagined to fit any lifestyle. The kitchen is bright and boasts ample storage with modern appliances, granite countertops, and substantial wood cabinetry that will please the best of cooks. A full size, stackable washer and dryer are tucked into a double-door closet maximizing the space for more storage and organization. Two cozy bedrooms and two sleek bathrooms complete the tour of the home. The primary bedroom has french doors that lead to a small, private deck and low maintenance back yard. There are no exclusions to each fully furnished room, right down to the name brand kitchen cookware and appliances. There is a large gravel parking area for multiple cars. Minimal, yet lovely landscaped flower beds that line the front of the house only adds to the curb appeal. Lets not forget to talk about the property's best feature...the LOCATION! Situated behind the new & coming soon Embers Hotel and Restaurant, you're one short block from Main Street. You can also access the sidewalk that was completed this year from downtown Blowing Rock to Bass Lake, connecting the business district of Blowing Rock with the Blue Ridge Parkway. The Moses Cone Memorial Park, Appalachian Ski Mountain, Tweetsie Railroad, Middle Fork Greenway, and so much more are only minuets away from Rainey St. There are not many opportunities like this in Blowing Rock proper so don't miss out on this rare gem!
