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.
There are nearly two acres of gently laying field and pasture area which have historically been used as fenced pasture. The remainder of the land is thickly forested with mature hardwoods, great for wildlife habitat. An old barn provides storage and shelter for livestock. Several mature fruit trees dot the property and there is plenty of sunshine on this south facing property so you can grow anything here. One of the best features is that there is a very large year round stream cascading through the property. It can provide irrigation for crops, water for livestock and even power generation as it has substantial head pressure.
A paved driveway leads from the paved county road and crosses the creek, climbing up a hill to the main cabin. The main cabin is a very comfortable log home designed as a two bedroom house with two baths. Part of an upper loft has been converted into a third bedroom and a large finished lower level could provide room for more guests. There is a large deck with outdoor fireplace and hot tub looking out at the view in the distance, yet the house is totally hidden from view from the road. It sits up high, thus providing a great line of sight and defensible location for anyone attempting to trespass.
A second home on the property is a well maintained three bedroom manufactured home. This house has a covered carport, a very large workshop/storage area and expansive covered rear deck overlooking the stream. With this second dwelling, two families can create their own security compound. This is truly an ideal set up for two families looking to go in together.
