Property description

We live on this property in a separate house and have a small 7 acre farm. We raise llamas, donkeys, and fruit and vegetables. We also have 2 horses, 6 laying hens, 2 dogs, 4 cats, and fish in the pond. This is a lovely rural community that is close enough to town to give you the best of both worlds.
The 'cottage' is a 1400 sq. ft. home built on a small hill with garage underneath it. Access to the home can be up the front stairs, up the inside stairway on foot or electric chair climber (250 lb. limit), or drive to the back door and enter up 2 steps.

About the owner: We love the mountains of Western North Carolina and the lifestyle of living on a small farm, yet being close to the town of Waynesville and the city of Asheville.

Why the Owner Chose Waynesville, NC, USA:
It just happened, as we wanted this property to live on, and the second house was a bonus.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We are close to many recreation areas. Motorcycle riders enjoy the location being close to some of their favorite mountain roads. Fisherman enjoy casting in our pond, and taking a short ride to fish the Pigeon River for trout fishing. Birders can enjoy looking for the many different species of birds that migrate through our area. Folks who want peace and time to relax can lay in the hammock and read or sleep. Commune with the many animals here, horses, llamas, a donkey, chickens, dogs & cats. Deer and turkey often come down from the woods. Hoot owls can be heard every night. Hikers can walk the property, or head out to the Appalachian Trail near by. Almost anything you might want to do, you can find here, or very close by.
