Absolutely an exceptional bugout property for the budget conscience. This three acre parcel is located in rural southeastern Buncombe County (Asheville county seat) approximately 24 minutes south of the Norman Rockwell town of Black Mountain (setting for the novel “One Second After” by our local favorite son, Dr. Bill Forstchen. The property sits on a paved county maintained road and best of all, the road is a dead end and the frontage is all at road grade, meaning no need for a steep driveway. In fact, a culvert is already in place and leads to a large gravel parking area.. Drive right on!
The topography of this parcel is ideal for building, with approximately half being flat, gentle land with excellent southern exposure. Perfect for gardening or livestock. There are three year round creeks that provide plenty of water for livestock or irrigation. There is already a 70 gallon per minute well on the property and power has been extended onto the property. A 20′ x 60′ gravel surfaced pad is already in place and perfect for the parking of an RV. There are easily $15,000 to $20,000 of site improvements already done on this property, which makes its asking price a bargain. No zoning restrictions or covenants on this property.
The other half of the property rises gently to a knoll covered in thick Rhododenron and Mountain Laurel. With a home on this knoll, it would never been seen from the road below. This is simply an exceptional bugout property for the security conscience.

Over the years, he has personally developed five successful subdivisions including one of 900 acres in western North Carolina. In recent years, while working in the jungles of Guyana, South America on a 34,000 acre project, John saw the United States from a different vantage point and as a result, he became concerned about its leadership, the direction of its economy and the instability of the dollar. Being good friends with others involved in a large NGO specializing in disaster relief, John became knowledgeable in the matter of disaster readiness and preparedness. Some would call him a “prepper” or even a “survivalist”, yet he's actually a realist and pragmatist, skilled at what he does.
