Property description

The non-smoking home is on a secluded, wooded ten-acre tract one mile from the entrance to the Slick Rock Mountain development and a five-minute walk from the lake.

It has a rustic exterior that blends with the natural environment, and there is a good view of nearby mountains from the living room and porch.

The two-story plan of the home, with two bedrooms and one bathroom both up and downstairs, is well suited for a large family or two small families. The home is tastefully but functionally decorated, and the premises are clean and well maintained.

Slick Rock Mountain is a 600-acre development of vacation homes near Brevard, NC, between the Smoky and Blue Ridge Mountains. The development focuses on family use, privacy, and preservation of the area in its natural state.

A small lake with picnic facilities is maintained for swimming, fishing and picnicking, and the development's gravel roads are kept in good repair. Otherwise, efforts are made to minimize development and maximize privacy in a heavily wooded, natural outdoor setting.

Slick Rock Mountain is about a 15-minute drive from Brevard, a charming resort town with a wide array of activities, including music, pubs, movies and antiquing. Asheville (with its lively arts, culinary and cultural scene, and classic Minor League baseball ballpark) and Hendersonville are about 35-45 minutes away; Greenville, SC is one hour away.

The area enjoys moderate weather all year. Summer lows are in the 50-63 degree range, with highs of about 75-85 degrees. Winters are mild in comparison with other mountain areas of North Carolina, with temperatures only occasionally dropping below ten degrees and moderate amounts of snowfall in most years. Elevation is about 3,000-3,750 feet above sea level.

The Vacation Home is less than two hours away from most of the major attractions in Western North Carolina. Driving distances to selected locations:

Brevard Music Center & Festival 15 minutes
Downtown Brevard shops, College, pubs 15 minutes
Glen Cannon Golf Course 10 minutes
