"Seller Says "
Some of the things I love about Old Fort are its warm and friendly neighbors, beautiful views of countryside and mountains, and easy access to both city and country in a snap. My Organic Farming neighbors sell fresh eggs, meats, vegetables and flowers within a mile from my house! I love to watch the horses roam and play in the fields surrounding my house.

We love to eat, relax, and listen to music on the outdoor stage at the Straightaway Cafe just 5 minutes up the road. Custer's Last Stand in Old Fort has the best cheese steaks in the world!  Galaxy Grocery and farm fresh organic produce and meats are super convenient to my home.

When we bought the property we were drawn to the sound of the creek, the long-distance views, the open air feel, and peaceful sounds of the country. The stars are tremendous at night because there is no street light to distort visibility. We also preferred the convenience of a smaller home to take care of while still enjoying an expansive grassy yard to play in. The first spring after we moved in we discovered hundreds of surprise flower bulbs blooming including a variety of Iris, Lillies, Daffodils, Red Roses, Gladiolas and more. The blueberry bushes yield more blueberries than one family can eat so we picked them and sold them at the Black Mountain Farmers Market in the summers.

The Old Fort area is wonderful for escaping the urban grind. Warm days and cool nights are guaranteed. In Old Fort it is easy to feel removed from the busy work-a-day life and relax into the natural peace of the valley. The commute to work and the doctor's office is very easy. Tons of song birds and hummingbirds live on the property. We see horses, deer, cows, fox, and wild turkeys on a weekly basis. Have not seen a bear yet though!

We love to kick back with friends on the patio grilling out and playing with our families in the fields and creeks on the weekends. We enjoy sharing harvests from our gardens with neighbors too. Lots of beans and maters round here! Lake Lure and Lake James are within minutes of our house so we Pontoon and camp as often as we can.    We enjoy go cart riding, remote control helicopter flying, fishing, hiking, welding and tinkering in the workshop, gardening on the property. I like to paint and play the guitar on the porch in the evenings. A beautiful waterfall is just a short hike into the cove behind the house. Neighbors host bonfires and pig roasts for Fall Frost and Summer. Our neighborhood is great for horseback riding and napping in a hammock by the creek.

Our Duke Power utility costs are extremely affordable in every season ranging from $50-180 in peak times. They even send us coupons for free light bulbs throughout the year.  We enjoy delicious well water for free! And the wood stove is amazingly efficient and keeps us toasty warm.
