-Full CPO listing(appraisal,home warranty and inspection). Beautiful home with great views and a perfect area for gardening. Great decks and located in a charming neighborhood just minutes to Asheville.
Most of all, we love to eat fireside in our cozy hearth room or in the summer, enjoy our garden fresh vegetables dining on the back deck gazing out over fields and mountains. However, we are looking forward to trying the new Turkey Creek Cafe just around the corner.
We have the local country stores to grab something quickly and the convenience of a discount grocery outlet and a grand up-to-date Ingles along Leicester Highway as we make our way home. Our favorite is the close-by farmer's stand where we pick up fresh foods and produce we don't have in our own garden. And Saturday mornings are fun at the Leicester Farmers Market just a few miles down Leicester Highway.
The Leicester Supply right down the hill is about the best place to get fast friendly service for most other needs and all the local news, as well.
Our local Leceister Post Office just down the highway gets the prize for gracious fast service, always with a smile, kind inquiry as to your health and a bit of quit wit---a pleasure to stop in.
We ascended the 1/4 mile hill to discover a charming, stout brick and cedar ranch house graced by many trees beginning to flash their brilliant fall colors. Responding to the exuberant invitation of the lady of the house to "come on in," we were enveloped in the warmth of the raised hearth, glowing hardwood floors, and the bright windows beckoning us outside. The vista which greeted us as we opened the door to the back porch took our breath away: stunning mountains and meadows and hills and trees! This spectacular beauty has never ceased to amaze in every season, whether the early morning mist shrouding the mountains in summer or the scarlet sky of sunset descending over them in winter. Each window in each room reveals a tantalizing portion of the beauty surrounding our home.
Our whole time in our Western NC area has been an adventure in discovering waterfalls and creeks and streams and forests; hikes to conquer Mt. Mitchell and Mt. Pisgah, camping and rafting, discovering old mill wheels and many odd bits of history and little out-of-the-way towns, mountain music and festivals, and on and on without exhausting the possibilities.
When first moving into this area, we were told that WNC has more varieties of flowering trees and bushes and vines than all of Europe. Growing as many as possible on our little homestead has become a grand avocation.
Ours is a quiet country neighborhood full of beautiful farms and beautiful folks who know how to be good neighbors: a congenial chat passing by on a walk, an offer of eggs or blueberry picking or firewood gathering or a look at the stars through a telescope if you have a mind to, always willing to lend a helping hand.
