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.
