Location

Car: Necessary

Our property is located along the Dan River in Mt. Airy, NC. It is an outdoor enthusiast's dream. One can fish for trout right on the property, go kayaking, canoeing, tubing, mountain biking, or hiking right out the back door of the house. Our property is over 50 miles upstream from the Duke Energy Coal Ash Spill, so no worries about the water quality or animal life.

We offer beginning fly-fishing, kayaking, and mountain biking lessons for an additional fee.

We are 20 minutes from Hanging Rock State Park in Danbury. The park offers numerous hiking trails that lead to waterfalls, mountains, and a lake.

Moore's Springs Mountain Bike trails are located here as well. These trails are for more experienced mountain bikers, intermediate to advanced.

We are 20 minutes from Pilot Mountain State Park. One can drive right to the top, walk about 30 yards for a spectacular view.

We are also 20 minutes from Mt. Airy, Andy Griffith's home town and the town the "Andy Griffith Show" was based on. Located there are nice restaurants, shops, and the Andy Griffith Museum.

Kayaking/Canoeing shuttles are available at Dan River Company, just 20 minutes from the property. They have kayak/canoe rentals and shuttle services. Take a scenic 3 hour trip down the beautiful Dan River. For an additional fee we will offer our services as guides on the river ($30 per hour). Jessup's Mill, only 6 minutes from the property also offers shuttle services on the river.

In the event you 'd like a nice drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway, our property is just an hour's drive away. The scenic drive to the parkway is almost as nice as the parkway itself.

There are several wineries/vineyards only 30 to 60 minutes away. Chateau Morrisette on the Parkway, North State Winery in Downtown Mt. Airy, and Autumn Creek in Sandy Ridge. All within an hour's drive or less.

Feel like picking some cherries? Levering Orchard, located in Ararat VA. is only 17 minutes from the property. The picking starts June 4th. Check out their website: leveringorchard.com

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Mark and Kathy Moore are both retired public school teachers from Greensboro, NC. They purchased this home in 2011 as a remote get-away. Mark is a Greensboro native and Kathy hails from Elkin, NC. Both love the foothills and mountains of NC which led them to purchase this home and property. Both are avid outdoor enthusiasts. They have 4 grown children, 7 grandchildren, and 2 dogs.

Why the Owner Chose Asbury, NC, USA:
This home and property sits on 75 acres of beautiful farm land adjacent to the Dan River in Mt. Airy, NC. You're free to roam the whole 75 acres of fields, woodlands, river, and river bank trails. This property gives outdoor enthusiasts many unique opportunities. Mark enjoys fly-fishing for trout, kayaking, mountain biking, and target shooting, all of which are just a few steps out the back door. Kathy is a nature lover and enjoys hiking along the mile long river frontage. She also enjoys kayaking and she and her husband, Mark, simply launch their kayaks from their property and take a 2 and 1/2 hour paddle down to Jessup's Mill where they take out. Jessup's MIll is only an 8 minute drive from the property. Or, they drive down to the Dan River Company at Hanging Rock (20 minutes) and use their shuttle services. Being only 20 minutes from Mt. Airy, it is a short drive to nice restaurants and shops. As an avid mountain biker, Mark especially enjoys the close proximity of Moore's Springs Mountain Biking Trails. These trails are for intermediate to advanced riders only.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Besides the activities of fishing, kayaking, swimming, hiking, biking, and tubing at the property, the one thing Mark and Kathy love the most about the house and property is the remoteness. After a day of biking, fishing, or kayaking, their favorite past-time is spending an evening by the fire pit on the bank of the river with a glass of wine while listening to the rapids. Another benefit of the property is the opportunity it gives their 7 grandchildren to experience the outdoors. While the house does offer internet service with WiFi, Mark and Kathy discourage their grandchildren from using electronics unless it's raining.
