The serenity of a mountain retreat will envelope the buyer of this rustic three-bedroom in Lake Claire — until the bash and clang of necessary construction commences. Or maybe not-so-cutting-edge kitchen cabinetry and patterned hardwoods add to the bivouac charm. In any case, the $440,000 ask includes a whirlpool tub, parlor, three screened porches and new energy-friendly windows throughout. The lot's big and tucked away but still within walking distance of the neighborhood's prized parks, restaurants and shops. Should appeal to any metrosexual mountain man.
