About Us & Wyldhaven Farm on 40 or 60 acres

Joie and I bought our farm/home a number of years ago and named it Wyldhaven. We had been living nearby and really fell in love with the land when we first saw it. It's quite magical with lots of old growth trees, grand rock outcrops and cliffs, streams, views, paths, and more.Market Garden at Asheville Organic Mini-Farm

When we bought the mini-farm, we had a pretty large herbal business with several people working for us and we envisioned creating a community based around building some cabins for our friends/employees and working as a group. But, circumstances changed so we plan to move to our dream location of Highlands NC in order to pursue other options in our lives. The property including house, barn, pasture, gardens, etc. on almost 40 acres. Price: $749,500.

A complete renovation of the home was done in 1999 and included new roof, paint, all new heating and a/c, as well as the addition of a back-up solar voltaic system and a generator - plus a large classroom / workshop with heat & a/c. Organic garden and extensive landscaping was begun then and later expanded on and there is an old chestnut barn (1918ish) with a pasture for your horses. An adjacent/contiguous 20+ acre parcel is available for $150,000.

Most of the property is heavily wooded and hilly/mountainy with lots of old hardwoods. About 3-4 acres is now open and about another 5-10 acres could be easily cleared and made tillable if someone wanted to do more extensive farming. There are several long ridges on the property that could have long range mountain views if some timber was cut. There are at least a dozen easily accessible house sites via our own private road.

Thanks,

Ivan & Joie
