Fernbrook is “Shangri-La” in the western North Carolina mountains.  It is truly a unique bug out property location with style.  The property consists of 60 very private acres located six miles off I-40 in the Black Mountain, NC area.  There are several creeks that feed into one very substantial stream and there is more than enough elevation change to provide micro-hydroelectric power generation.

The homestead is truly a one-of-a-kind.  It was built by an engineer and his wife (literally by the two of them by hand) over many years and is as solid as the granite under the mountain.  The house is nearly 1,000′ off the paved road via a private drive through thick rhododendron and situated alongside a large flowing stream.  The main house offers four bedrooms and three baths along with a three season covered outdoor room that spans across the stream.  There are footpaths and trails all through the forest surrounding the house.  A very large detached garage features a single bay parking area along with a two room workshop complete with kitchenette and bathroom.  There are outdoor sitting areas and footbridges throughout the property allowing access to all points of the property.  The roof is made of heavy gauge metal and the entire house is built about as solid as one will ever find.  It would be equally suitable for a ranch out in Wyoming.  Click here for a video tour.

The property itself is tremendously private.  Beyond the house, the valley floor is very gentle and could be cleared for some agricultural land.   A large waterfall is located up in one cove.  Access to the nearest commercial center is very easy, yet this property is far enough out of town and then far enough off the paved road to ensure its privacy and security if things turn bad in the cities.
