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.
