Off-the-Grid Retreat in the Breathtaking NC Mountains!

Love Where You Live!

This striking 46+-acre private sanctuary is the perfect prepper's retreat. Self-sustainable and completely off the grid, it is fitting for the modern survivalist. This custom-built home of reclaimed wood has soaring ceilings and windows and was hand-crafted as a work of art. A generator with battery bank powers the entire house and the heat source is the durable Central Boiler Classic Outdoor Wood Furnace. This house was carefully constructed with aerated concrete block, which the owners report as fireproof, bulletproof, pest/rodent-proof and mold-resistant. This home offers security, privacy, tranquility and natural beauty in the resplendent Western North Carolina mountains.

At 3428 Beans Creek Road in Bakersville, North Carolina, reclaimed barn wood planed to its natural beauty has become a one-of-a-kind work of art. This property, which borders the Pisgah National Forest, is loaded with natural resources and custom features. Property highlights include winter views at a 3600-ft elevation level, creek with multiple waterfalls, abundant wildlife, acute privacy, garden area, laurel-lined creek, wild flowers and herbs.

Property resources also include a tool shed and 100-gallon propane tank. Dual fuel is wood and propane. Two springs supply 120 psi water into house. The home is powered by a new generator and back-up generator for all electrical needs. An even more valuable green feature is that as the power source for this home, the generator does not need to run constantly as it charges a battery bank, which keeps the home powered. In fact, the current owners report that the generator often runs only once per 24 hours. To maximize the green quality of this home and reduce even that amount of generator use, one could easily add more batteries or solar panels.

Inside the home are 10-foot ceilings throughout with a 17-foot ceiling in the living room. Walls are 15 inches thick. The main door is 2 1/2 inches thick and opens outward for added safety. Pocket doors throughout the home enhance the spaciousness of this quiet refuge. This house is solid with wood doors, red oak floors, basswood ceilings and a variety of pine, poplar and maple walls. Windows and door frames are pine.

The granite kitchen has custom Hickory cabinetry at 40 inches in height versus the standard 36 inches. Kitchen highlights include a large kitchen island and breakfast bar of maple, oak and granite. Nearby is a large open pantry.

Beyond the kitchen and dining room is the sunken living room with a wall of 14 windows capturing the scenic views of Western North Carolina like framed art. The wood stove in this living room is sure to keep you warm and cozy as you relax before the majestic mountain scenes.

The master bedroom is a masterpiece in itself with tulip poplar walls, a walk-in closet, Anderson windows (throughout the house) and an entrance to the screened porch. The master bath harbors unbelievable space as well as a separate sealed cedar-lined shower. The guest room is framed with resplendent pine walls and the guest bath is spalted maple.

You can enjoy the surrounding beauty and gratifying landscaping from front and side decks or from within the commodious screened porch.

All doors are wheelchair accessible as well as the hallway, which is 42 feet long.
