I finally sold (gave away really) my Spec house, Caswell. I have 5 tough acres in Western, North Carolina, with an old rotting Single Wide Model home on it. This will be my final home I design, & build as much of it as I can, before I get too old.
It took me 2 1/2 yrs to find it. It has almost all I was looking for, but it is a rough lot & a lot of it is in very rough shape. Will take a lot of work to get it fixed up. The former owner clear cut about 1/2 of it, & left the stumps & let the briers all grow up. A HUGE mess. But areas will be my private woods.
A lot of it( & most of where I’m building) has Huge trees, & a area of Beeches, which I love. It has town water(I’m not going to deal with whole house filters & dead well pumps in my old age), but no restrictions. Great for my dogs & chickens, & what ever I want to do. Dog Training, doggy day care? A stone’s throw to a Country Club, One fairly level mile to the small town, with everything right there. New Food Store, Post Office, 2 banks, hardware store, small lumber yard, 3 Gas stations, etc. even a Thriftshop!!! 15/20 minutes to Asheville airport, Hospital, & the big stores, Lowe’s, Home Depot, Tractor Supply, etc.
The ditch at the road has failed, & the D.O.T will not do anything about it.
