Asheville house description

Beautiful wood cabin home with gorgeous views and great location, positioned across from our horse barn and stocked pond. This open setting provides some of the best views of the stars.
H&G farms is a young farm who is on it's way to becoming a sustainable organic farm. Many of the current systems are all ready providing multiple sustainable functions, such as solar electricity in the main farm house, ram pump and solar pump systems. Our 3,600ft green house is designed around an auaponic fish farm system that allows for growing organic food year round, and permaculture principles are being applied and implemented throughout the entire farm.
Only a 35-45 minute drive from Asheville and nearby many outdoor adventures, although it's safe to say that one could adventure within the 25 acres that the farm is on. Playing in the streams and falls, hiking through the grounds, or fishing in our stocked pond while bird watching and wildlife viewing. Kids and adults alike can get a close view of our farm animals, cows, horses, and chickens throughout the grounds. Dogs are welcomed as you will certainly be greeted by our farm dogs!
If you are looking to get away and relax in nature, and/or looking to stay near the proximity of city fun, this is the place for you.
We also offer permaculture workshops and customized sustainable education for anyone interested in work exchange living, as well as discount rates on cabins for anyone interested in getting their hands dirty and work in exchange.

Hope that you book your stay and that we will see you soon!

              Leicester is a beautiful mountain area with lush forests, pastures and streams everywhere. It is located near the beautiful city of Asheville, and it is a great place to enjoy the nature and wildlife while not leaving the city life too far behind. NC has the widest ecological biodiversity in the united states and most likely in all North America. The property is tucked deep up in the mountains and is a secure and beautiful place to visit.

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About: My wife, Valerie, and I purchased the Leicester retreat in April 2012. We believe in sustainable living and taking care of our environment.

              Why Asheville:
              We searched the entire East Coast of the US for the perfect location to build out our retreat. We chose the Asheville area for its mild climate while still having four seasons. We also loved the mountains, pastures, and streams we found here. We wanted a place where our family, friends and livestock would all be happy.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              This property offers breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains. During foliage, it is an amazing place to see. We've turned it into a sustainable living property with wood furnaces, a greenhouse, solar panels, water storage and many other eco friendly improvements. You'll love learning about nature and how to live peacefully with nature.
