A Hidden Jewel Near Asheville, NC... and it's For Sale!   $675,000

Whether you are looking for an equestrian estate, a Western North Carolina mountain home, a great famly home, a summer retreat or just some place to hang your coat - this could be the home you are looking for! What started out as one man's dream in 1982, has been a work in progress for over 30 years:

The Stable

The Stable was built in 1996, using timber from the property and a portable sawmill. The siding is 1x10 cut lumber. Like the Gazebo, the eight roof components were put in place to support each other, requiring no inside supports.  The hayloft is designed to hold up to 3000 bales of hay. The current requirement is for about 150 bales per horse for the winter.

The tack room is in the hayloft, adjacent to the balcony. The stable and pasture is designed to support six horses, with additional pasture property across the road, currently being used for cattle.

Outside of the Main House

The tile deck, the cedar entry exterior and the steps to the lower level were added in 2004. The covered walkway was added in 1994 and leads to the Gazebo.

The Spa can seat up to eight with privacy from the road being provided by the Dogwood tree. The spa is suspended over the edge of the rock platform to provide the feeling of being "suspended into space".

Guest House / Work Shop

The original structure was built as a tabacco barn in 1955.  The second floor was added in 1994, providing approximately 4000 ft of usable space. 

The bottom floor has a complete woodworking shop, an electrical/mechanical work area and storage.

The second floor was originally designed to be an office for an electronics company, with 1 1/2 baths, kitchen and managers office. Today, the office is a guest bedroom.

The view from the deck is fantastic!

Main Floor

The four foot front door was designed and built by Dam Enterprises in Marshall NC and installed in 2003. The entry room is highlighted by a center table below a beautiful chandelier, acquired at the Glass Factory in Venice in 1998. The bucket list includes a trip back to Venice for a larger chandelier and return this one to its original location over the stairs leading to upstairs.

Upper Level

Directly above the master bedroom is the upper level recreation area and spare bedroom.  Also equipped with office furniture, this room is a great "getaway" for working, thinking or just enjoying the same views as the master bedroom below.

Lower Level

The lower level can be accessed from the Great Room above or from the outside door at the "cave" below the deck. A sporty plaid carpet puts you in the mood for whatever game might be on the big screen TV that can be watched from any of four recliners, the couch, game table or the full bar. Thru the adjoining bath, you enter the large guest bedroom, then thru the utility room, you enter the next guest bedroom, which also has a door to the "cave" outside.
