The Ken Cove Farm is a picturesque mini-farm located in southwestern Madison County North of Waynesville and I-40.  If you’re looking for a quiet setting with plenty of natural resources with a nice house to boot, this property could be it.  Its located approximately seven miles northeast from the historic Ferguson’s General Store and Café and about two miles from the landmark Trust General Store.  Though the mailing address is for Hot Springs, the property is actually more convenient to Maggie Valley and Waynesville.  Bear in mind that Highway 209 is a true mountain highway, with plenty of twists and turns (there’s a reason bikers call it “The Rattler“), so if you tend to get motion sickness while riding in the back seat, this location may not be for you.  But believe me, its worth the drive.

There are approximately 23 acres with approximately two acres in gently laying field/pasture.  The four bedroom house sits at the end of the cove off a well maintained gravel drive and its completely hidden from view from NC Highway 209.  The house has a beautiful long range mountain view and looks out over both the fields below and a very sizable pond.  In addition to the pond, there is a roaring creek off to the side that provides plenty of surface water and could possibly provide power via a micro-hydroelectric generator.  There is a well maintained corn crib along with a substantial barn and two story “chicken condo” as the owners call it.

Inside the house, you’ll find the Master Bedroom on the main level along with a second bedroom, living room, dining area, kitchen and attached unheated workshop area, complete with a wood stockpile.  The lower level features two more bedrooms, full bath, laundry and a large den.  Both the living room and den feature German made wood stoves unlike any I’ve ever seen.  They are engineering marvels and can heat the entire house.  A large deck sweeps across the view side of the house and overlooks the pond while below, is a covered patio.  Outdoor living spaces abound.

Behind the house is a detached studio/classroom building.  This building has been used for classes, yoga, the arts, and just about anything needing a large high volume space.  Would make an ideal home office or workshop for a home based business.  This property offers a great deal at a great value: acreage, privacy, creek, pond, barns, house and studio.

The property is owned by a non-profit and as such, the sale must be approved by the NC Attorney General’s office.  This is simply a formality, but generally takes 30 to 45 days for the AG’s office to approve a sale.  Call us today to schedule your private showing.  Please note: sellers require a minimum of 24 hours notice prior to showing.
