We have the pleasure to bring this amazing 105 acre farm with vineyard and magnificent home to market. Located approximately 45 minutes from Asheville with direct views to the South Mountains, this working cattle farm and vineyard is simply amazing not only for its beauty but its practicality and productivity.
Everything about this farm has been designed for ease of management and maximum production. Of the 105 acres, approximately 80 are in thirteen fenced pastures that are the optimal size for rotational strip grazing, meaning less need for hay (the largest expense in a cattle operation). The two Pearson livestock care facilities ensure ease of handling the cattle for veterinarian work. Each pasture has no-freeze watering stations, linked together with water lines that can be isolated for maintenance.
In 2019, the vineyard produced double the amount of grapes per acre when compared to the North Carolina average. Not only that, these grapes had a sugar content of 20% to 24% which is the ideal for top quality wine. The 400 vines are in rows spaced ten feet apart versus the customary eight for ease of harvesting, and they have a programmable drip irrigation system to minimize loss of water.
The house is simply luxurious and appointed with very high finishes. Included are more than 1,100 square feet of lower level basement area that would make an ideal safe room, or hidden storage area. Because this property has such productive land as well as more than 5,000 feet of broad creek frontage in a rural area, it lends itself to a retreat property unlike many for the upper end prepper or hobby farmer. Its also just 40 minutes to the Tryon International Equestrian Center and this land would be ideal for horses.
