The Barrett House and a variety of land  ~ The Living Well Community

Home and Land to build for Sale ~ A place to retreat and reflect!
We are selling our 6 year old custom built timber frame home. It has been a place of great joy and rejuvenation. We have welcomed Airbnb guests, farming interns, family and friends from all over the country. Mostly, however it has been our home, a place of prayer and great love. We awake daily with a sense of gratitude for the beauty that surrounds us….inside and out! Our gardens are our pride and joy. Every inch of our property has been lovingly landscaped with a variety of fruit trees, flowering perennials, shrubs and berry bushes. Our 4 outside decks and porches provide different views of the community, all beautiful in their own way.
Our home has 2 levels, each approximately 1100 square feet. The upper level boasts a stone fireplace which heats during the winter, an open floor plan with a loft overlooking the greatroom. Two sets of French doors open up to a deck overlooking the back and side gardens and forest. The master bedroom and bath have a laundry room and private deck. The lower level has 2 bedrooms, a full bathroom, a greatroom and a set of bunk beds hidden within a set of closet doors….. A treasure for grandchildren as well as extra guests. The lower level opens up to a deck that reaches into the forest. All floors are wood except for the 3 bathrooms which are travertine. The inside doors are solid wood, including closet doors which have all been created by a master carpenter. Our home was designed and built by Kent Broyhill Wiles, check out his website.  Included in the sale of our home are  5 lots and a 1.7 acre parcel all within the community. New owners can choose to build on the lots, sell them or hold on for future investment purposes. We are also willing to sell our home and lots separately. Please note that the lots at Living Well Community have increased in value in the 5 years we have lived here. Our home is within the The Living Well Community, an Eco Village in Franklinville, NC.
The Living Well Community sits along the Greenway of the Deep River. Bike riding, hiking, rock climbing, kayaking, bird watching or a 1 mile walk into town are right outside your door. Our home backs onto the Greenway.
