                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: Welcome to my listing! I am a former corporate executive who has spent more than enough years on the road traveling for a living. I always knew that I would realize my dream of living in the mountains someday. As a grandmother to 5, I wanted to be closer to my family and they all live within a few hours away. I actually built this custom home to my exact specifications and it became a relaxing retreat for my family and friends. I am now downsizing my living arrangements and want to offer this retreat for others to enjoy!

                      Why the Owner Chose Asheville:
                      After spending a year in the area and searching for the best location to 'lay down roots'; I found this property and immediately felt a sense of the history of this acreage and upon further research, I found that many of the farms in the area housed the women and children left behind during the Civil War. A lot of the residents in Hoopers Creek are descendants of families who lived through the war. One local college professor and neighbor has written a book that includes information about the acreage I purchased. This is the story of his family lineage and many of the grave stones in the nearby cemetery bear his family name. You can 'feel' the history of this property as you explore the surrounding caves knowing that they were used as hiding places during the Civil War.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      This home is located on 3 acres of wooded land within 8 privately owned acreage. With few neighbors; the feeling of peace and harmony resonate all around the inside and outside areas. Sitting on the deck(s) with a glass of wine or a cup of coffee is heavenly!
