A family from Georgia.
The owners repurchased part of a grandfather's old Kibbin property which was a place of magic in the family from 1934-71. But the old log Kibbin , site for decades of both annual Kibbin parties for legal figures from around North Carolina and of family memories . had held up the mountainside for too long, so a granite cottage took its place.
Exceptional architecture hard by a shallow ford of a pristine, cascading,symphonic mountain creek.
Nearby sights include Andrews Geyser, old NC Central Hwy hiking trail, Blue Ridge Parkway, Biltmore House, Catawba Falls, endless hiking in Pisgah Natl Forest, craft beer in Asheviile, Mt Mitchell and Old Fort Mountain Music on Friday nights.
