This 43+/- acre farm NW of Asheville is an amazing property with everything one needs for comfortable sustainable living.  Located at the end of a private road shared by just four other neighbors, this property offers tremendous privacy, yet easy access to everything one might need on a day to day basis.   It is situated in the S. Turkey Creek area of northwestern Buncombe County approximately 25 minutes to west Asheville.   The drive is a beautiful one through rolling farms and hillsides, then turning off onto a state maintained gravel road before turning onto the private roadbed.

Once at the property you’ll find approximately 43 acres of a combination of gently laying farm land and woodlands climbing up the hillside behind.  This listing is equal parts and land improvements; first the land.  Around the classic farm house, there are approximately four acres of gently laying fields and farm land.  This area is improved with the cottage farm house, workshop, two barns, and garden areas.   There is plenty of room for livestock, row crops, hay or even additional home sites if desired.  For many, many years the property has been organically farmed.  There are two creeks on this property, one of which is spring fed from the property itself and feeds a small pond.  There is an easily dirveable farm road through the property that can take you to the upper elevations of the woodlands where you’ll find excellent views.  However, from the rear pasture area, you already have beautiful mountain views.

The cottage farm house was built circa 1910 and has been extensively renovated in recent years including new roof, paint, flooring, cabinetry, appliances, plumbing, electrical service, decking, etc.  For several years, the sellers lived just above on an adjoining property and rented this cottage successfully as a VRBO.  Inside you’ll find two bedrooms, full bath, kitchen, and living room on the main level.  They converted the attic into additional living space and fitted it out as a bedroom suite complete with whirlpool tub.  This upper level is accessible through interior stairs, but also has its own private access via an outside staircase complete with a sundeck, thus making it ideal for guests.  A spacious deck on the rear of the house faces the farm and a thick bamboo forest along on of the creeks which has a beautiful fire pit off to one side.

There’s a well built workshop behind the house that is perfect for projects, then you’ll see the large garden area beyond.  Two barns provide storage and plenty of opportunity.  One is a livestock and hay barn with remnants of an old silo giving it the classic farm look.  This barn has plenty of life remaining in it.  A second larger barn is designed more for equipment storage and can house numerous vehicles and farm equipment.

This is truly a beautiful setting, yet also a very practical property.  With an abundance of water, fields, pastures and woodlands, this property has the ability to be a totally sustainable property in a very secure setting.  If you like to hunt, there are plenty of woods and wildlife habitat.  It would make an ideal full time homestead or a secondary home location.  Or you might build another home elsewhere on the property and do as the sellers have done, and rent the cottage for income.  So call today to schedule your private tour of this amazing property.
