Historic House Listings

Twenty minutes to Asheville! 28 acre family farm. Circa 1890. $543,000

April 8, 2019

This family farm is listed for the first time ever. It is a pretty intact farm. Not going to lie, the listing is a bit confusing and I’m assuming this price is for the house, the outbuildings and 28 acres. But there is an option for less acreage or more acreage. Situated just 20 minutes from downtown Asheville, North Carolina. The house itself was built in 1890. The property also has a saw mill, blacksmith shop, molasses shed, cutting shed and many other outbuildings. Walnut Island Park and French Broad River access is just three miles away. Located in Alexander, North Carolina. Three bedrooms, one bathroom, and 1,508 square feet. $543,000
