Just 25 minutes from Asheville, NC sits a beautiful 3BR log home along scenic highway 209 on 72 acres overlooking the Great Smoky Mountains.  The property encompasses approximately the upper 2/3 of Black Bear Cove with only two other homes at the bottom of the mountain.  The main log home is at 3200 feet elevation with a road and hiking trail to the summit at 4200 feet. No one can build above or beside you since you own the entire upper cove.  The main home is a beautiful traditional  log home 2600 square feet with 3 BR and 3 full baths with underground utilities and a 13 kw back up generator..  There is an additional large office with loft on the third floor with the master suite.  Driving up to the home you enter the second floor main living area with an open floor plan encompassing the kitchen, living area and dining space.   A large wrap around porch allows you to spend mornings and evenings overlooking the Smoky Mountains and Pisgah National Park.  The main living floor also has a wood burning stove capable of heating the second and third floor.  The third floor houses the master suite along with a separate office and loft that could be used as a fourth bedroom.  The present owners added a mitsubishi individual heat pump that both warms and cools the master if desired.  Two bedrooms and a full bath occupy the first floor each with window unit air conditioners.  One of the bedrooms also has gas logs and a separate propane wall mounted heater.   A 1000 gallon buried propane tank and furnace provide heat throughout the home.In addition to the main log cabin, a classic 80 year old farm house greets you on the drive onto the property.  This is a two bedroom, two bath home with a propane furnace and wood burning stove.  Heart pine floors and bead board are present throughout.  The original stone foundation still exists with a spring underneath providing for a root cellar.   A third 900 square foot log cabin sits privately on the montain between the farm house and the main home.  Both second structures have served as popular long term rentals.   Numerous outbuildings constructed with hand hewn logs from the 1800s provide storage and a four stall barn and hay loft.   The entire 72 acres is fenced and cross fenced and has served as grazing for cattle and goats.  There are also dozens of apple trees that produce a plentiful harvest in the fall.  These are great for your own use or can be used for additional income.    There is already one additional home site with water and power ready for hook up.   Riding the road system also will reveal the potential for other home sites and can serve as an exclusive, private compound for family.   One area already has electricity and water and is ready to build on.  Deer, bear, bobcat, and turkey roam the hills of this property.  Just a few miles away is Cataloochee Valley where monster elk now exist again.  This gorgeous property offers nature and seclusion yet is only 25 minutes to West Asheville and the Art District with numerous restaurants.   Contact me for more information and direct referal to our local agent in North Carolina.  More pictures coming soon!!
