Big Pine Shangri-La

125 Acres in Madison County NC


This 125-acre farm in Big Pine community of Madison County is a perfect place to build. Approximately six miles of trails and roads meander up and around property, showcasing pristine mountain views through the canopy.  At the center of the property you’ll find yourself in an expansive cove of pasture and views to build your new home.

The Land | The farm is a short distance down Big Pine Road complete with trails, pastures, water and views. The land rises in elevation from 2100 to 2700 feet. After entering the property you wind up the driveway through rich forest, arriving at Shangri–La. The property opens up into pasture land and desirable home sites with mountain views.  Here you find three ponds at base of the pastures and two remaining barns from a century ago. Extensive road work and fencing has been put in place throughout. Travel east to find additional pastures and large barn. The barn is complete with tack and storage rooms. There is a dry hay loft and 4 stalls for horses.  Enjoy plenty of natural springs for watering animals and fruit producing apple trees. Continue on up road to reach top of land to reach some beautiful old growth timber. Two finger ridges branch out that would be ideal for a retreat picnic area or home site.
The Facilities | At the metal gated entrance, you cross a new bridge of steel and concrete where you find a caretaker home, shop, gardens and coop. The shop is a 2100-square-foot steel beam insulated workshop with a chimney in place for a woodstove. The outdoor wood burning heat source and generator services both home and shop.  This farm has many improvements. All it needs now are your plans for a home; or live in the 3-bedroom 2-bath caretaker home with a beautiful stone patio, rock retaining wall with large outdoor fireplace. A small interior creek runs beside the patio.  Below the shop and home, there is a garden and chicken coop.
The Location | Shangri- La is located near Marshall NC, the county seat of Madison County. A growing center for the arts, Marshall is a river town with an eclectic setting and a small town feel.  From downtown Marshall, it’s only a few miles to the town of Weaverville and 20 miles to the city of Asheville.  Enjoy proximity to the Appalachian Trail as well as rafting on the French Broad River, trout fishing, skiing and numerous outdoor adventures.
