Unique Conservation Development Project Launched in the North Carolina Mountains Near Asheville

| From

ASHEVILLE, NC - May 19 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- In the midst of rapid real estate development growth in Western North Carolina, one person has come up with a novel approach for keeping this magnificent mountain land wild and natural. John Myers of Hickory Nut Forest, LLC, who has spent the past 18 years protecting over 20,000 acres for parks and trails, has designed a unique conservation development project in Hickory Nut Gorge, just 17 miles from Asheville.

Over the past two years, John and a small group have acquired over 200 acres of pristine land on Little Bearwallow Mountain. Rather than seeking to maximally develop this land, their goal is exactly the opposite, to work to keep this rich habitat natural as an undisturbed forest.

On an adjacent parcel, he and another group have created Hickory Nut Forest. This small, conservation community includes only 17 custom designed homesites on 26 acres, with protective covenants to preserve the forest character. These homesites are surrounded by lands protected by a conservation easement with trails along the stream and through the forest.

Overall in the entire Little Bearwallow Mountain project, an amazing 90% of the land is planned to remain forested! In addition, just across the road is another 560-acre nature preserve with miles of hiking trails, and a few miles down the gorge is the new 1500-acre Hickory Nut Gorge State Park. John envisions hiking trails eventually running the length of the gorge linking all these areas together.

The fortunate few owners of these one to two acre home sites in Hickory Nut Forest will be able to live in the midst of these large magnificent forests, rocky cliffs, trails and rushing mountain streams.

Special discounts are now available for lot reservations made prior to this summer's Grand Opening Event.
