161 Acres

Pristine Acreage in Asheville, North Carolina


This iconic farm with stunning long range mountain views features 161 acres on Emmas Grove Road, only 10 minutes from downtown Asheville. The rare large acreage tract includes open pasture land, mature hayfields, a 1930s-era brick farmhouse, rolling terrain with small creek, and large area of wooded forest. Perfect for a private estate, horse farm, equestrian community or custom homesites.  The property offers direct access from Emmas Grove Road.

The Land | Unsurpassed in location and views, this magnificent 161-acre tract provides frontage on Emmas Grove Road as well as entrances off of TC Lane and Green Mountain Lane.  With south facing and southeast facing views, the land features open, gently rolling terrain and a small stream.  The tract stretches from Emmas Grove Road all the way to the top of the ridge.  The rich woodlands contain a variety of mature native trees including white oak, yellow poplar, dogwood, eastern hemlock, red cedar, scarlet oak, red maple, and black birch.  The 1930s farmhouse, sold as is, offers “good bones” for potential restoration. The distinctive brick from this house was derived from the historic courthouse building which existed in downtown Asheville prior to the current 1928 Buncombe County courthouse.  Utilities are available.
The Possibilities | With ideal location, three points of access, and easy terrain, this property lends itself to a variety of uses.  For decades, this pristine land has been used for farming and hayfields.  The property is currently in a Forestry Management Plan which could be continued by the new owner.  The tract would be ideal for a private estate, a distinguished horse farm, or division into estate tracts.
The Location | Located in the desirable Fairview and Cane Creek area near South Asheville, this farm is just minutes away from schools, shopping, dining, cultural activities and the hospital district of Asheville.
