This historic Black Mountain farm on Broad River is located just 15 minutes south of the quintessential town of Black Mountain.  For those who have read the NY Times Bestseller “One Second After“, you’ll immediately recognize the town as the setting for the novel that started the modern prepper movement.  But the property isn’t limited to prepping, but rather an absolutely ideal setting for an event venue, a spiritual retreat center or self-sustaining homestead as well.  Its simply a stunning property.  Click here for a full motion video of the property.

From the moment you round the corner, the property lays out before you on the other side of the Broad River, a crystal clear trout stream on which the property has approximately 1,000′ of frontage.  There are acres of open field on the far side with the five bedroom house sitting at the base of the wooded mountainside.  A total of 26 acres provide room to explore or expand if desired.  The property is entirely on the opposite side of the river and accessed via a private steel and concrete bridge with concrete headwalls for stability.  Upon crossing the river, you are looking at the historic house built in the early 1900’s and extensively renovated in the past ten years.  Nothing has been left undone.  Click here for an immersive 3D interior tour of the house.

For several years, the property operated as a successful Bed & Breakfast, but today is a family retreat nestled in the mountains.  With a huge fire pit with encircled by six porch swings down by the river, a garden, small vineyard, orchard and two barns, the grounds around the house are something out of a lifestyle magazine.  The lodge overlooks the fields, gardens and river.

There are five bedrooms plus five and one half baths.  Every bedroom has a private bath and has been uniquely decorated and renovated with many of the original components. (some furnishings are negotiable while others do not convey)  The master suite is on the main level along with the dining room, gourmet kitchen, office and such.  The second floor offers four en suite bedrooms, a gathering room and enclosed sleeping porch on the front overlooking the river and approach to the house.  A huge deck is to the rear of the house and has steps leading up to another grassy sitting area above the house.

The property has been extensively renovated with new siding, windows, interior finishes, zoned HVAC in every suite, new fireplace stonework, electrical, plumbing, etc. in recent years.  Energy efficient passive solar features on upper level.  It simply must be seen to be appreciated.

If you are seeking a location for a wedding or event venue, this is a must see. If you’re looking for a family retreat in the mountains that harkens back to a simple life, this is a must see.  If you’re looking for a self-sustainable homestead or farm where you could live off the land or live off the grid, this is a must see.  If you’re looking for a beautiful, light filled setting in which to host groups or meetings, this is a must see.  Call today for your private tour.
