Description

Contemporary & eco-friendly, this newly-constructed pet-friendly home on Mill Creek is located on the outskirts of downtown- a 2-minute walk from the Old Fort Ride House and Hillman Brewery. The house offers a deck, fire pit, chef's kitchen, and gas grill to enjoy along with the beautiful views and calming sounds of Mill Creek. Old Fort Adventures is also a cyclist's paradise. In addition to the professional-quality bike tool kit, the home offers quick access to the "must ride" Kitsuma Trail and 5 miles of newly completed G5 Gateway Trails. Additionally, you'll want to be sure not to miss Old Fort Ride House, a visitor center where you can plan your adventures, fill up on espresso and tasty snacks, get your bike repaired or tuned up at the Old Fort Bike Shop, and socialize with other cycling and outdoor enthusiasts! Maps, pre-planned routes, and general information are available in the house book. ​​​​​​​Known as the Gateway to the Blue Ridge, Old Fort sits at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains and is surrounded by lush forests and a diverse wildlife community. Old Fort's Native American and railroad history can be felt throughout town-including a hand-carved, 14-foot rose granite arrowhead on top of a 15-foot river rock with a concrete base featured in the middle of town. You can also find local-favorite Hillman Beer in the middle of downtown, with its savory burgers, gorgeous river views, and cold brews. Within the mountains of Old Fort, you'll find Pisgah National Forest with over 67,000 acres that include hemlock forests, cove forests, bogs, and fens. Andrew's Geyser is a quick 7-minute drive up Mill Creek and boasts a 60-foot gravity-fed geyser that runs seasonally. Catawba Falls (currently closed) is a stunning 100-foot cascading waterfall, and Point Lookout Trail is a popular 4-mile paved trail that ascends almost 1,000 feet through the Swannanoa Gap with views overlooking the protected lands of the Foothills Conservancy. Take a short 15-minute drive to reach the neighboring towns of Black Mountain and Marion. Known as the Front Porch of Western North Carolina, Black Mountain, boasts 3 local breweries (Lookout Brewing, Pisgah Brewing, and Black Mountain Brewing) along with novelty shops, art galleries, parks, and incredible restaurants like Foothills Butcher Bar, Louise's Kitchen, and Black Mountain Bistro. Visit the other small town of Marion and spend your afternoon exploring the new 310 District, an indoor shopping space that's home to Marion Wing Factory, Toonez Chop House, Marion Hot Wheelz indoor skating rink, Chances of Sprinkles Bakery, and several retail shops. Old Fort Adventures is also just 25 minutes away from Asheville where you'll find the iconic Biltmore Estate & Gardens. Take a 35-minute drive south to reach the village of Chimney Rock and Lake Lure, where you can enjoy family-friendly fun that includes a swimming beach, water park, twilight dinner cruises, boat tours, and boat rentals (paddle and pontoon). Please note: This home is pet friendly with an additional fee. There are two security cameras on the property (one in the carport area and one at the deck entry). The home is near the railroad track, and it is not uncommon to hear and see a train coming "around the bend" into town-an exciting prospect for train & railroad enthusiasts!
