3.7 acres in the Firefly Mountain community, less than 5 miles from the center of… Hot Springs, (pop. 600+-).  

This property offers a variety of desirable features including:

  •  towering trees
  •  seasonal view with potential for more with tree trimming/removal
  •  privacy (no neighbors in site)
  •  stream frontage 
  •  nature trail (leads to community waterfall)
  •  gated community (code access)

When you arrive at Firefly Mountain you’ll notice the National Forest boundary markers because this piece of paradise feels like it’s carved out of the forest. Paved roads throughout much of the community, but there are some gravel roads including where this lot is located. A community lodge boasts a modern kitchen with stainless steel appliances, a fireplace, and more!  Stroll on the nature trails, fish at the pond, hike to the waterfall. You can enjoy the scenery and serenity without traveling far from home.

The town of Hot Springs is a popular weekend, and vacation destination for anyone looking for outdoor activities: hiking/Appalachian Trail passes through town, rafting/French Broad River, fishing/French Broad River & Spring Creek. Throughout the year the town is host to various festivals, and events.  It’s home to a few locally owned eateries (no franchise restaurants), an outfitter store, market, and arts/crafts gallery. Hot Springs is close enough to end your day with a massage, and/or to relax with a soak in a hot tub along Spring Creek or the French Broad River. Convenient to Marshall and Weaverville for grocery shopping, and to Asheville for more dining, shopping, and entertainment options.

You could build your cabin or home (min. square foot requirement is 1800) for living here year round, seasonally, or have an income producing vacation rental. Restrictive covenants are in place to protect your investment by maintaining continuity of home sizes, etc.  New homes were completed in 2017… how bout yours in 2018?

This is a beautiful property with diverse features. A previous soil evaluation for a conventional septic system was not approved. However, the seller has reduced the price to offset cost of an alternative septic system. Buyer would need to perform a new soil evaluation to determine suitability.
