If you’re looking for a multi-family compound with great privacy, you need to see this one. Situated in northwestern Buncombe County this property is at the end of the road. It is easily accessible year round due to the efforts of the property owner on improvements to the road leading to the property. Asheville is just 30 minutes away, yet this is so out of sight, no one will ever surprise you. (ask us for details as to why)
The 34 acres are comprised of several acres of gently rolling pasture, some with fencing and the remainder wooded mountainside, ideal for wildlife habitat. On the 34 acres, you’ll find seven cabins. Yes, seven cabins. Five of the seven have been updated and are 100% occupiable and fully furnished. The other two are building shells that are dried in with metal roofs, windows and siding. They offer a mix of one bedrooms with one bath and two bedrooms with two baths. Every cabin features a second story loft that is used for additional bedding. Each one has a wide three sided covered porch including portions of which are screened. There are even hot tubs on the porches. They are all nicely spaced on the property so as to allow for good privacy at each location. Click here for a full video of the property.
Inside you’ll find a traditional style log home interior with exposed wood throughout and vaulted ceilings in the great room. Click here for a 3D Tour of a One Bedroom Cabin. Wood burning fireplaces are in every cabin along with fully equipped kitchens. There are living spaces and dining spaces, all fully furnished. These cabins would make ideal vacation rentals (which was their original use) or housing for multiple family and friends during a time of need. You could have your own private community. Getting around from cabin to cabin, is an interior network of gravel topped drives that was very recently upgraded making it easy to get around. Click here for a 3D Tour of a Two Bedroom Cabin.
Another building is used for equipment storage, maintenance and houses two 1,550 gallon water storage tank which is fed by the high volume well that serves all the cabins. This building is insulated and has a large roll up garage door with concrete slab. Every rural owner needs such a building. The cabins are served by four septic systems with drain fields in a pasture below.
There are several acres of pasture that could accommodate livestock, orchards or gardens. Situated within one of the fields is an original barn structure that has been updated to a degree and enclosed with a full wide wrap around covered deck. This building would make a great common area element for family gatherings enjoying the bucolic setting and mountain views. A much larger pasture features approximately 4.5 acres of gently laying open pasture with two substantial creeks flowing through. There is a spring within this pasture that flows down to a small pond that could easily be improved if desired. The views from this pasture are excellent of the nearby mountain faces and ridges in the far distance. There is an historic log cabin with old stone fireplace in this pasture as well.
Drive time to Asheville is just 30 minutes, yet this property feels like its in its own world. There is a public paved road to within 3/4 mile of the property, then a privately maintained gravel road gets you to the property. This road passes through a former eco-tourist farm called Randall Glenn Resort. At one time, these cabins were part of this “resort” and guests who stayed in the cabins could experience farm life with goats, chickens, cows and horses along with panning for gemstones in the creek and sluice. The owner of this farm no longer operates for the public, but an owner of these seven cabins could find great benefit in being adjacent to such a land use. There are numerous possibilities both for recreational experiences, but also for sustainable living options if one desired. A full legal right-of-way passes through this farm on its way to the seven cabins.
