Designed with prepping and survival in mind, this 20+ acre farm located in the far reaches of western North Carolina yet convenient to Asheville is a one-of-a-kind.  It has everything one would need AND want.  The seller lived through the 2008 meltdown and said "I need a bugout place for my family.", then proceeded to hire Scott Hunt of Practical Preppers to help him design it.  Talk about a prepper's paradise!

There are two primary dwellings on the property plus three tiny cabins that share a common kitchen/bathhouse that is totally off grid.  There are acres of fenced pasture, two year round creeks, stocked pond, woodlands, fenced orchard area, berry bushes, a 120' x 30' heated greenhouse, potting shed, equipment shed and updated and expanded barn with stalls, tack room and finished living space above.

The main house features a 5kw solar system, geothermal heat with a wood fired boiler for backup.  There's a 1,000 gallon water reservior and the house is full of all kinds of tech including a whole house generatore.  There are four bedrooms and four full baths plus a basement workshop in addition to the detached heated/cooled workshop.

The farmhouse is an updated three bedroom, two bath ranch with double garage and is offered furnished.  The one bedroom "romantic cabin" is a beautiful home full of tech with spa like bath and offered furnished.  There's even a two-story treehouse with canopy walk connected to a 200' zip line!

The property is being offered as a whole or as two parcels centered around the two primary dwellings:  Main House with 5 acres and zip line, orchard for $549,900; the Farmhouse on 12 acres with greenhouse, pasture, barns, tiny cabins for $674,900; or all of it for $1,149,900.
