Description: Historic 1930's retreat built by Southern Railway executives for their personal playground in the western North Carolina mountains. Located just 40 minutes from Asheville near Old Fort and only three minutes to I-40, this property is remote yet convenient. Boasting 29 acres with frontage on both sides of the rushing Mill Creek (trout) and two large trout and bass ponds, this is a nature lover's paradise. Portions of the property climb up the mountain with great views. The grounds are immaculate. The lodge itself boasts six bedrooms and five full baths plus large living areas, screened porch and swimming pool. The lodge is like a fortress set up on a rocky promontory overseeing the grounds. Its a massive stone and steel structure featuring components from the railroad. Example the beams in the game room were built from actual railroad trestles. Its almost like walking into a museum. Everything in the lodge (furniture, light fixtures, artwork, memorabilia, books, linens, etc.) convey with the property. The entire lodge has been extensively renovated and updated with new HVAC, power, elevator, electronics, etc. In past few years, the property has been rented for overnight stays and weddings. Solid income history for the investor, so much so that it can pay for itsef.
