This property has been in my family for 150 years. The farmhouse has modern updates including Direct TV and wifi to go along with traditional touches like a wood burning fireplace and antiques. The water is the best water you will ever taste coming right out of the 250 acre mountain that is part of this property. There is a pond and lots of options for a country stroll.
The beautiful 1/4 mile driveway for the property is one of the few that is directly off the Blue Ridge Parkway(For those of you familiar with the area the driveway is directly across the Parkway from Miller's Campground). This section of the Parkway is peaceful and gorgeous in every season, filled with wild flowers and birds in spring, summer, with stunning color in the fall, and spare, contemplative beauty in winter.
This property is 25 minutes from West Jefferson which is known for its art galleries and crafts, pubs and restaurants. Mt. Jefferson state park is there. It is 25 minutes from Wilkesboro and Merlefest. A little further up the Parkway are Boone and Blowing Rock, skiing, restaurants, shopping, and views, views, views. The New River is 20 minutes away with outfitters for canoeing and tubing. There is no better climate on the east coast during the summer than in these mountains.
This section of the Parkway is very popular with bicyclists. The Mountains To Sea Trail passes through here as well.
The Vacation Rental is the main house downstairs. Upstairs is an apartment occupied by a family member.
