WHY DO WE SHOW EXPIRED LISTINGS?

Are you the type of couple or individual that likes the out doors, hiking, kayaking, camping etc?  Do you like living way out in nature?  Do you want to live in a quiet, tranquil location off the beaten path?  Would you like to see "Short Off Mountain" every day from your nearby yard?  Less than 10 minutes from Lake James.  This property backs up to the Pisgah Nat'l Forest!  Do you enjoy helping other like minded people?  IF you do then we may just be a great partnership!

I am seeking a like-minded, nature loving (dog-friendly) couple to come live at my place and help me continue to improve and push forward my small family farm and vacation rentals.  I would be seeking a couple where one person has construction experience as we will need to be doing inside remodeling with framing and finish work, some electrical and plumbing (to add a sink or light fixtures etc). Small engine repair experience would be awesome as we have weed eaters, lawn mowers etc to help maintain the property, but not mandatory.  The other person could have landscaping, gardening options and cleaning of the rentals between clients. I would also ask that you pet sit my 3 rescue dogs and care for my horse and donkey on the occasional times I am gone from the farm. 

I am seeking a long-term couple/partnership here on my place but will also be glad for short-term support as well.  In trade for your assistance I can offer a full apartment in my LARGE HOME.  The apartment I would want to be yours will be our first remodel project and you can have some input on how it is done!  It is a basement apartment but will have plenty of natural light options and opens into what used to be, and can be again, a nice little stone and flower garden.  It already has plumbing/electrical, wood stove, half bath, full kitchen... This house already features an AirBNB rental apartment upstairs and the final goal is to finish out 2 more sections of the home into 2 more rental apartments.  All would be private and separate from your own apartment but within the same structure.  I will provide the utilities (heat/ac, electricity and good quality streaming internet in the home!) If you happen to have an RV or Camper I would be fine wiht you parking it here and we give you hookups while we remodel your apartment - but if you don't we have options to work out together.  I will consider pets/kids depending on the situation.

Thinking around 30 hrs of maintenance/construction per week and approx 5 hours cleaning/landscaping per week (summer hours might increase with mowing and landscape maintenance). You could work a few hours every day or knock it out 3 days a week - I am flexible...just seeking some help to move this place forward and to offer a like-minded couple an option to live in a stunningly beautiful area of WNC and hopefully become property manager with income once this place is running full capacity.  Prefer you be financially self-sufficient but if not these flexible hours would offer you the option to obtain a part-job in the area.  

I have a rental cabin on the creek and my goals are continue fixing the big house.  I want the farm to sustains itself and provide you and me a supplemental income.  I have many ideas about other options on the farm in the future (tree houses on the creek etc) but nevertheless, one can only do so much alone. 

*note* To the right couple I am open to you making this home base and building your own place on the property as a future option.

If any of this sparks your interest then please contact me and lets brainstorm!
