Nestled in a picturesque, quiet mountain cove off Beaverdam Road in North Asheville sits this charming Appalachian farmhouse built in 1875 by the Stradley family. Historic character abounds in the gingerbread trim along the front porch, hand-hewn ceilings, fieldstone chimney fireplaces and multi-porches and creates a sense of connection to the land. Careful updates throughout the home maintain the rustic charm while providing modern conveniences. Collect apples from the orchard in the front yard, watch the family of black bear cubs scurry up the ancient oaks and take in the serene surroundings from the porches, patio and council ring. With the 5 ample bedrooms (including a master suite on the main level) and located only 15 minutes from Downtown Asheville and 3.5 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway, family and friends will love to gather in the pastoral setting that is also near Asheville’s amenities.
