Absolutely beautiful well maintained farm north of Asheville.  Easily accessible but off the beaten path.  Has frontage on two roads meaning you have two ways in and out.  Fourteen acres with eight of that in gently laying fenced pasture.  Approximately four acres of woodlands provides plenty of fuel for the wood fired boiler that heats the house and water.  There's a chicken house and greenhouse along with fruit trees, berry bushes and plenty of space for gardening.  A run-in shed is located in one corner of the main pasture.  The property faces east and south, thus providing abundant sunshine year round.  Install a solar panel array and you could be off-grid.  No zoning and no home owners association means you're free to pretty much do what you want on your property.

The house itself is a 3 BR 3 BA brick ranch in excellent condition.  It has been extensively updated with new kitchen, living room, dining area, huge covered porch with outdoor fireplace.  The owner is a baker and the kitchen and countertop areas are extensive.  There is a separate canning station in the basement complete with a four burner propane cooktop and large stainless steel commercial grade counter/sink.  The area has also been set up for craft brewing!

Also in the lower level is another room with tile floor and one of four wood burning fireplaces in the house.  This room is presently used as a classroom for teaching concealed carry classes.  There is plenty of additional storage and work space in the basement that could easily be made into secret spaces for security purposes.

A large 30' x 40' detached two car garage/workshop sits off to the side.  It has 200 AMP service and water along with a wood burning stove for heating the insulated space.  There are multiple water points on the property including a creek branch that has never run dry.  Spigots have been installed throughout the grounds for watering gardens and livestock.

Many of the equipment pieces (John Deere Gator, John Deere tractor with attachments) are negotiable.  This is truly an exceptional property ideal for sustainable living.
