Approximately one third of the land is in pasture and is stunningly beautiful with outstanding views. The remainder is all in a mature hardwood forest with the forest floor being clean due to livestock keeping it down. Its a hunter’s paradise. Two streams border the property with one of them crossing the middle of it and being very substantial in size.

McDowell Farm – Black Mountain (Asheville), NC

849,000  32 acres  John Haynes  Retreat Realty
McDowell Farm is the ideal survival property: off the beaten path, yet accessible to good roads and nearby Asheville; pasture land; wood land; streams; homestead; barns; etc. Situated at the end of an unpaved county road, you must pass by an assortment of rural residences and burned out hulks of mobile homes to get to the gate. Its just the kind of approach that says “Keep out”, that will cause most curiosity seekers to steer clear if they even found the road. Once you’re on the property, it has one access, or choke point which makes it easily defensible. Shaped largely like a triangle, it is bound on two sides by substantial streams and on the third by hundreds of acres of undeveloped, topographically challenging forests. The point is, no one is just going to stumble upon this property. Furthermore, from the house on the property, one has a clear line of fire to ... [Read More]
