This is an exceptionally well built and finished log home situated on ten usable acres.  Located near Lake Lure, south of the town of Black Mountain and Asheville, it is also easily accessible to Hendersonville.   Its right at the point where Buncombe County, Henderson County and Rutherford County join up.  The ten acres are on a plateau at just over 3,300′ above sea level.  Click here for a full length video.

There are no restrictions on this acreage so you can hunt, shoot, ride ATV’s, build multiple dwellings and out buildings, and keep livestock if you wish.  The land is perfectly suited for all these uses.  Access to the property is over a two mile gravel privately maintained road which is in excellent condition.  There are approximately 20 neighbors along the road, all of them with homes on five to 15 acre parcels, therefore, its very low density.  This is the best of both worlds in that you have no restrictions, yet you have neighbors nearby in case of an emergency, and that’s a good thing should a tree go down across the road.  All the homes in the area are of comparable quality and the majority of properties are occupied year round.

The ten acres themselves have several hundred feet of wooded frontage on the shared road and the house is tucked way back in the property accessed over a flat, gravel driveway.  Down below the house, the land is terraced and eventually flattens out to a cleared field where you could keep livestock, garden or just play and have fun.  Flow from one of two creeks that traverse the property has been diverted into an excavated pond that measures approximately 130′ by 90′ and is stocked.  One of the creeks is rather large and both flow year round.   There’s an ATV trail that loops down from the house, by the pond and back up to the driveway, providing easy access to the field.  The remainder of the land is wooded and is very gently laying.  Click here for an interactive aerial map of the property.

The house was built in 2008 of solid log construction.  Where many log homes have dark interiors, this one is bright and airy with the great room and Master Bath having their walls finished with a whitewashed pickled finish.  The house features an open concept living style with a huge vaulted great room seamlessly connecting to the dining area and into the kitchen.  Enjoy the wood burning fireplace on a chilly evening, or step outside onto the 8′ deep covered deck that spans the entire length of the house looking out to the pond below.  The kitchen features high end appliances including a dual fuel range/oven along with travertine tops and Kohler plumbing fixtures.  The floors are wood throughout and all the light fixtures and door hardware is of high quality.  Click here for an immersive 3D model of the house.

On the main level you’ll find two comfortable bedrooms tucked away down the wide hallway with the master bedroom offering a walk in closet and large spacious bath with counter mounted sinks.  The guest bath features the same.  The laundry is off the hall and therefore you have all one level living in this house.  The lower level features an unfinished walkout basement with high ceilings ready to be finished out however you’d like.  There’s a wood burning stove downstairs and the entire area has a new (2019) HVAC sized sufficiently to provide heating and cooling for this space if you decide to finish it out.  A whole house generator is being installed to provide emergency power if ever needed.

In summary, this is a lovely, high end home situated to ten of the most enjoyable acres you’ll find:  gently laying land, wooded and fields, pond and two creeks, views all around.  No restrictions and privacy make this the ideal hideaway or family retreat.
