This 40 acres and cabin in the foothills of western North Carolina is ideal for those looking to be totally out of sight, yet not too far from civilization and to bugout in style.  Located in northern Rutherford County, just 18 minutes south of Marion and 14 minutes north of Forest City, this property is inside the 500 acre Cane Creek Mountain gated development.  You can be at a Walmart or Lowe’s within 15 to 16 minutes, yet you’ll feel a million miles away.  The world renowned Tryon International Equestrian Center is just 26 miles away.  The South Mountains State Park is just a couple of miles north with its miles of trails, camping and waterfalls.  This property is also in what is known as the “Isothermal Belt”, which is an area having a very stable year round range of temperatures: never too hot and never too cold.

The community itself is gated and features underground power to every property.  Although the community encompasses 500 acres, there are less than 28 properties within it, therefore, each property is generous in size, ensuring one’s privacy.  At present, there are a handful of homes, a few of which are occupied full time.  The gravel roads are in excellent condition and the development is well cared for.  Click here for an interactive map of the property and community.

The house is situated on its own 40+/- acres of private woodlands.  The house is not visible from the street and is tucked away in a cove at the confluence of two year round streams.  One of the streams has been impounded into a small pond, thus providing a huge water supply in case of an emergency.  The land rises up around the house on three sides and there are old logging roadbeds that make for excellent walking trails.  There are even a couple of caves on the property.  For readers of Franklin Horton’s survival book series, you’ll appreciate the importance of a cave.  For a complete 3D Walk Through Tour of the house, click here.

The house is a stunning three bedroom, three bath log home with wide front porch and an expansive deck off to one side overlooking one of the creeks.  This side deck has a 10′ x 12′ awning covering a portion of it to get out of the sun.  Inside you’ll find a beautifully appointed interior (all furnishings to remain) in a mountain motif.  A wood burning stone fireplace graces the vaulted Great Room and the expansive kitchen flows into the space.  A tiled sunroom/dining room on the rear soaks in the sunlight.

The main floor features one bedroom with a full bath, while upstairs are two large bedrooms with full baths and a loft.  Every shower in the house is done in tile with frameless glass enclosures.  The plumbing fixtures throughout are first class including hand painted basins and even a wooden basin.  Everything down to the light switch plates has been done to blend with the décor.  A whole house generator sits outside ready to provide power if ever needed.  If desired, this property could make for a tremendous vacation rental.
