Bryson City 8 Acres With 2 Dwellings

429,900  8.13 acres  John Haynes  Retreat Realty
Located one hour west of Asheville just outside the wonderful mountain town of Bryson City, this property is also near the 11,500 square acre Fontana Lake.  The property itself is just 18 minutes to town, but located off two secondary roads, the last of which is a dead end, thus this property has tremendous privacy and security from any “golden hoards” that may travel the main roads.
