It is safe to say that your approach to walking and hiking mountain land (including some that is for sale and calls to you in and around Beautiful Asheville) will evolve over the years. And, it's also safe to say that walking the mountain land will never cease to inspire and amaze you, as it does our land brokerage team. One look at a scene like this (photo from recent walk on broker-colleague’s land for sale) and you may see what I mean.
Over the years, I must have written at least three volumes about mountain land and acreage here in Asheville. I love the land! For lucky buyers the investment they made in LAND remains strong. Here are just a few of my notes from the .
Land & Sustainability Series- Asheville, NC
That series gives a big nod to the idea of sustainability—preserving farmlands and mountain landscapes and creating a way of life that goes on from generation to generation.
Think about organic apple orchards and vegetable gardens. Think about possibly even working to restore the American Chestnut Tree. Think about horse and “boomer”-friendly homes on the land, and you have the seeds to plant for sustainable excellence.
Over the years we have found that having your camera along is just the thing for those in search of land here in the beautiful valleys and mountains.
Relocating? Yes! But keep a record of the places you have scouted. From baby boomers to first-time home buyers and young families, from artists to organic growers, I especially love the idea of introducing our clients to nature-friendly (AKA eco-friendly) properties
green-built homes in eco-friendly, sustainable communities, and in particular land for horse farms, organic growing and conservation. Here in the mountains, you sure can appreciate the value of sustainable practices where old barns are renovated, the land receives a soft touch and closer in to Asheville, green renovations are "the Thing"...
But just now it occurred to me that you might like to take a closer look at farms and farms/lands you actually can visit whether you already live in the Asheville area, or are relocating here.
So, courtesy of the Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project, here is a link that will take you to over 200 farms you can visit in the Asheville area. Let me know what you think. Which are your favorites? And which inspire you?
