Asheville really is a fun city to live in, this property is sure to be worth the asking price!
My wife and I visited North Carolina last year, and the Blue Ridge Mountains were one of the highlights. Asheville is amazing--not too hot in the summer when we went! Too bad this property will probably be snapped up by the time I win the lottery. Looks gorgeous, though. Someone could really do something incredible with this. And it comes with a sailboat, too? Sweet!
Sure makes what I'm looking at outside of my window suck. lol I know a couple friends in Asheville -- looks like I should go visit them!
North Carolina is a beautiful place, the Blue Ridge Mountains left a permanent impression on me when I drove through close to 10 years ago. Sounds like this place is a steal at 2.9 million, wish that I had that kind of money to invest.
What a gorgeous mountaintop property!
I attended a wedding in Asheville about three years ago and ever since I've been dying for the opportunity to go back. If I had the funds, I would be all over this property! Beautiful place.
Asheville is a lovely place Britt. My brothers went to school near there back when. A place called Hendersonville not far off - school called Blue Ridge Academy. We used to take a yearly visit to a place called Chimney Rock. Lovely spot.
