For those looking for an escape from the fast-paced life of the city, and who want to disconnect from the rat-race, this little 1920 farmhouse is the perfect solution. This house takes you back to a time when life was simple. Relax on the covered front porch overlooking the pasture and listen to the soothing sounds of the rushing stream and the joyful chorus of nature. Curl up with a book in one of the home's cozy nooks, or go for a invigorating morning walk along the gravel roads or trails through the many acres of mature forests that surround the house. Kick back in the hot tub on the cool nights and enjoy the firefly show, start a warm fire in the fire pit, or just lay out under the stars of the protected Dark Skies area to take in the magnificence of creation.

Year Purchased: 2004
About: I grew up in Wilmington, NC, went to school at NC State and Lees-McRae, obtained a Business degree and have invested in real estate for about 7 years. I left my management job with Food Lion after 15 years of employment, to start a career as a real estate agent just a year and a half ago...and love it! I got married 2 years ago to Kimberly who has a Violin Performance degree from ASU, and we just moved to town in Boone, and decided to keep this property for friends and family to use, and to rent out for others to enjoy as we have for years!
Why Deep Gap: After visiting the mountains with friends to hike numerous times, I bought this little cabin as my first home, while I lived in Charlotte so that I would have a place to escape from the city on the weekends. Of course, the more I escaped, the more difficult is was for me to return to the traffic, the heat, and the smells of the metro. After owning it for a year, a job opened up for me in the mountains, and I gladly accepted! And I've never looked back!
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse: The first time I drove down the long driveway through the mature canopy of trees, and heard the sound of the stream from my car, I knew this was my place of paradise. The solitude and the beauty of untouched nature has been my refuge for 8 years. I embraced the rich history of the house and its stone steps and patio made from the rocks from the creek, and the oak beams and frame, hand cut on site, all still standing after 90 years of use and neglect. I had the privilege of restoring the home completely and making it my own, from the roof to the floor and even further by having the whole house lifted 2 feet to help preserve it for years to come. I've enjoyed the simple charm of watching the thousands of butterflies that come every year to the butterfly trees behind the house, the wildlife sightings of deer, hawks, waterfowl, turkey, groundhogs, raccoon, and even a bear, the nightly display of the brilliant lights of the fireflies, and of course, the STARS!
