Overview

About the property

2-Story 4-bedroom, 3-bath stone farmhouse in beautiful valley landscape

BREVARD, NC - This property is a 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom stone farmhouse sitting on 84 breath-taking acres. It is set in a beautiful valley, providing beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. The property is gated, offering plenty of privacy. It is located only ten minutes from one of North Carolina's favorite small towns, Brevard. The house itself features 4 bedrooms. The master bedroom features a king bed and is attached suite style to an amazing master bathroom. Another bedroom features a queen bed, while the two remaining each offer two twin beds. There are two other bathrooms outside of the master, making three total. The kitchen area and dining room are open and flowing, and provide easy access to a patio via a sliding glass door. The den downstairs features a stone gas fireplace, a couch and loveseat, and a high definition television. High definition television and wireless internet access are available, as are all standard kitchen utilities (fridge, oven, microwave, etc.)

The Sykes family assumed stewardship of this property in 2011, after it had been continuously owned and farmed by the Shuford family for over 160 years. We have paid homage to the Shuford family by carefully restoring the Shuford’s “stone house” which was originally constructed in 1940. It should be noted that this house was actually constructed prior to wide-spread usage of plywood, sheetrock, or many other “modern” construction materials. In fact, it was constructed approximately a dozen years prior to electric power reaching this portion of the Little River valley. Completely renovated in 2012, the house now has 4 generous bedrooms and three bathrooms, all completely restored to reflect the original craftsmanship and attention to detail that went into the original house. Perhaps the centerpiece is the master bathroom’s clawfoot bathtub sitting on stone flooring, in front of a second story window overlooking the distant Pisgah National Forest ridgeline. Behind the house is a grand barn of approximately the same vintage. The Sykes family is currently remodeling the barn to function both for the Shuford Farm’s herd of Registered Red Angus cattle, but also as a unique venue for celebrating the numerous outdoor adventure activities to be pursued in and around Transylvania County. Hence, the “Pisgah Gravity Research Center” – dedicated to low gravity days and high gravity excitement! In addition to the Assault on the Carolinas, we also support at a significant level the 6-time National Champion Brevard College Cycling Team, Brevard High School Junior Cycling Program, Boy Scouts of America, Trout Unlimited, Free Rein Equestrian Program, Carolina Climbers Coalition and the Southeast Climbers Coalition.

The Sykes family makes the Shuford Farm “Stone House”, the “Pisgah Gravity Research Center”, and the two vacation cabins comprising Bear Ridge Cabins, located on Mine Mountain available for vacation rentals.

Lovely renovated farmhouse with a view

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful farmhouse nestled in the valley on rolling acres with such beautiful views of the foothills. The deck out back was a great place to sip wine and enjoy time with good friends. The home was renovated well having ample space for a large family. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Beautiful old farmhouse placed in scenic valley

  • 5 of 5

We happened upon this vacation rental by accident and are so happy that we did. We had everything we needed and more as far as basic necessities go. The house is superbly stocked with kitchen utensils, decorations, and other commodities. We did not go out to eat once because we enjoyed sitting on the porch with the gorgeous views of the mountains all around. The property is incredibly peaceful and beautiful, as is the house. The owner stopped by one day when we were outside and introduced himself. He was incredibly kind and spend a bit of time with us explaining the history of the property.

There were four couples, one with kids, who stayed in this rental. We had plenty of space for all of us. We sincerely hope this vacation property is still available next year so we can stay here again!

Wonderful Christmas vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented the house the week before Christmas 2016. The grounds are beautiful and the views were absolutely amazing. So close to brevard, Asheville, and Hendersonville we always had something to do. Had a great time hiking to the falls as well. So nice and peaceful we decided to make it a tradition to take a trip before Christmas every year and I could see us returning!!!

The view was awesome!

  • 5 of 5

The house was extremely nice.High end furnishings and very comfortable beds. The house was surrounded with spectacular views of mountains as far as you could see. The pastures beside the house had cows but we were not bothered by noise or any unpleasant smells. My husband, myself, and our dog stayed for six nights and really enjoyed the house and views.

Amazing Homestead in the WNC Mountains

  • 5 of 5

We had our first company retreat for Avoda (avoda.io) there for 10 people. 7 people stayed at the house very comfortably. It was the perfect place for us. We got to eat and work together for a couple days, which is great since normally we all work remotely across the Eastern US. We love being surrounded by the mountains. It was really relaxing, clean, and fun. The property is incredible. My wife and I would love to have a property like this someday.
