Owner info

About the owner: I grew up on Balsam, and know about every nook and cranny in that area. I used to qualify as a local, but since I moved away, I can only claim 'native.' I find Western North Carolina an outdoor enthusiast's dream. I hike, bike, kayak, trail run and sail, so I return as often as I can to play and avail myself of the culinary wonders of Asheville. Most of my family still lives on the property, and I intend to move back permanently on retirement.

Why the Owner Chose Balsam:
balsamSKY was built in the early 1980s as a year-round residence for my father and his wife. The house was built entirely with timber harvested from the land and was milled by a local lumberman. One of the most unique homes on Balsam, the house is surrounded by over 100 privately owned acres. The land has been in the original family's possession for over 60 years.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
balsamSKY has a spectacular sweeping view of the Nantahala mountains. The mountain top location affords guests absolute privacy.
