Looking for Land in All the Right Places- Is like the song....About this, land specialists like me will have to admit that finding the “right” acreage on which to create your AT LAST home may not be easy. Take, for example the case of one of my favorite land-buying clients here in the mountains of looking for land in Asheville NCAsheville, NC who had some difficulty in telling me what he  desired.

Yes…he envisioned a small farm and a green-built home and a state-of-the-art barn to match…but with enough level land for his gardens. (Guess what? That is a double challenge here in the mountains around Asheville.)   We were both scratching our heads when it occurred to me to share one of my favorite passages from John Crowley’s book, Little Big.

I was thinking how the process of looking for land and actually finding the “right” place actually works and feels as expressed in these few exquisite lines from that master story-teller. Here they are:

“…on brave luminous mornings
walking expectant and watchful,
waiting to be ledandfeeling
(at once, at the same moment)
the turning [you] must take that would lead
to a place  that  took your hand and said,

“We’re here….”



“YES!” my client said. “YES!!!...And I thought…possibly, just knowing that I understood, and was fully along for this journey with him was all that is needed ...in the long run.... P.S. I love Looking for Land in All the Right Places

Well done.  I'll take the view and forget about the garden area.

Have an outstanding week with your camera in hand.

Hi janeAnne, Shouldn't the garden be the enhancement of the land ( sloped or unlevel). I think gardens should flow with the highs and lows and while more difficult to create, well worth the effort. Perhaps you already found the right land in all the right places. :-)

With a deep, indrawn breathe, I agree. You know when you are there. Very nicely put, janeAnne.
