  • Property Details

    Grace and charm abound on this historic 34.7 acre farm in one of Ashe County's most magnificent valleys.

    This original Thomas Sutherland farmhouse dates back to 1885 according to Ashe County records but historic documentation dates back to 1807.

    The home was originally antepellum timber and chink log cabin but was expanded to this formal home just post the Civil War era.

    The 1,140 sf guest house is complete with kitchen, living room, 2 bedrooms and 1.5 baths, including a separate laundry area.

    The home sits on a beautiful knoll with stately mature hardwoods and expansive lawns.

    The entrance to the home is a grand formal foyer with shiplap walls and original seeded glass inserts.

    The front parlor, or sitting room, has an original fireplace (now covered), shiplap walls and original hardwood floors. Spacious and great for entertaining.

    The kitchen, located in the original timber and chink log cabin, sat as the heart of the home with large wood burning fireplace, now with cast iron insert for heating. Notice the large exposed beams.

    This spacious staircase and entry hall define the character and charm of this stately historic home.

    The upstairs hallway shows the wide expanse and inviting doorway to second story covered balcony and front of the home bedrooms.

    The upper level has 3 spacious bedrooms and showcase the original hardwood floors and fireplaces.

    This upper level bedroom shows the original wood burning fireplace and hardwood floors. Each of the bedrooms have spacious closets.

    The rear of the home sits beyond the fenced pastures beckoning to simpler times and the beautiful surround.

    The property is proudly a part of the Farmland Preservation District. This barn is large enough for tractor storage, hay storage, or can easily be converted to a garage and workshop.

    The original hand hewn timber barn and tack house still solidly sit on the property. These original buildings are a history lesson in and of themselves. Craftsmanship that has remained for well over 130 years. Both antique buildings flank the entrance to the pristine pastures beyond.

    This barn showcases hand smote iron pivot timber doors which lead to the spacious interior featuring three original hand carved log feeding troughs.

    True to the period, these timber barns were built by carving and laying giant timbers by sheer man power and the strength of their animals. A testament to the innovative nature of the period.

    The pasture lands of this 34.7 acre property are fenced and include additional out buildings and sheds.

    The gentle nature of the pastures is perfect for grazing livestock with additional pastures for harvesting hay for winter feeding.

    The acreage is ideal for cattle, horses and/or buffalo. There are 5 drinkers strategically positioned throughout the acreage and an additional 4 spring feeders.

    These 36 head of cattle graze serenely by the large, fully stocked pond on the property.

    The property extends with valley views. There are multiple apple, hickory and even a white walnut tree (very rare) on the property.

    The fenced pasture backs up the valley and mountaintop to almost 5 acres of hardwood timber lands, several of which would make incredible home sites

    The views from the top of the sloping pastures are amazing! Here the property overlooks Peak Mountain, Ashe County's highest peak, all of the farm and surrounding valley. This kind of land is hard to find. Unique and pristine, this farm offers so much potential as the rural retreat of a lifetime.

    Absolutely beautiful, this gorgeous 34.7 ac. property, with historic farmhouse, guest house, antique barns, tack room, spring house, outbuildings and pristi
