Modern Farmhouse in Private Location

This modern farmhouse is not a property you want to miss out on. With a bright blue door and stellar sunset views, this 4 bed, 3 bath house has been recently renovated and is located in Leicester, North Carolina. The home was upgraded with new stainless steel appliances, new flooring, new roof, HVAC system, water filtration system, exterior and interior doors, new window treatments, and custom woodwork.

But wait! If you've also been looking for a home with shiplap accents - this is it. Shiplap accents have been added throughout the home, from the home to the master bathroom, you'll love the variety of seamless shiplap accents. 

  

This property is meant to be enjoyed. You can hangout in the rec room, watch the sunrise or sunset from the front deck, or warm up by the stone outdoor fire pit. However you choose to relax in this home, it'll be yours for a lifetime!

    Walking in a Winter Wonderland | Why winter is an ideal time to begin your Asheville land search

    The term "winter wonderland" may conjure up imagery of snow angels, ice skating on frozen ponds and snowball fights.  While our mountain paradise in Western North Carolina certainly sees low digit temperatures and a few seasonal snow flurries with accumulation from time to time, average high temperatures in Asheville actually tend to hover between the high 40s and low 50s. Asheville winters are a great combination for those who like to enjoy the best of mild winter hiking or walking during the daytime and then cozying up around the fireplace as the evening chill sets in. 

    In addition to the completely bearable temperatures, the winter months also have some great benefits when it comes to those who are looking to purchase land in the Asheville area. 

     

    GreyBeard Realtor Ali Whitman shares:

    Many folks may slow their home or land search for a variety of reasons in the colder months, but walking lots with your real estate agent in winter is actually more ideal. With the leaves gone and suppressed undergrowth and briar thickets, winter allows for better visualization of the contours of the lot, walkability, and long-range view potential. 


    In addition to being able to better visualize the contours of the lot, here are a few other benefits to starting your land search in the winter months:

    • Evaluate sound and "background noise" that may not be present when leaves return to the trees
    • Examine how sunlight impacts the land (and your future home) without dense foliage present to block views, and consider things like window placement for sunset views
    • Remote mountain homes often have septic and well systems when city water and sewer do not reach the property. Walking the land in the winter months can assist with establishing plans and placement for these systems.

    At GreyBeard Realty we have mountain lot listings in numerous developments throughout Western North Carolina that we would love to explore with you. To name a few, check out our listings in Catawba Falls Preserve, Gateway Mountain, and Creston. For those who are looking to build on a vacant lot, we encourage you to make an appointment with a GreyBeard agent so you can make the most of the winter months during your land search.
