$9.3 Million Estate Is Highest-Priced Residential Sale Ever Recorded in Canopy MLS

An extraordinary farmhouse estate sited on 160 acres has sold for $9.3 million; it is the most expensive residential sale recorded in the Asheville region and the most expensive sale ever recorded in the Canopy MLS. Located at 3903 Island Ford Road, this ultra-private paradise features a modern main residence, two guest cottages and a pool house. The property was marketed exclusively by Marilyn Wright of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty’s Asheville office and co-listed with John Witherspoon of Witherspoon Platt Associates.
The seller purchased the property in 2016, fully renovating the main residence. Exceptional appointments include soaring cathedral ceilings, stone wood-burning fireplaces, an incredible chef’s kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances, a personal gym, a two-level home theater and multiple decks with breathtaking vistas. New additions to the property include a pool and one-bedroom pool house as well as the acquisition of 10 adjacent acres.
Two separate guest cottages on the property provide privacy for friends and family: The two-story home features three bedrooms and three baths; a cozy two-bedroom cabin resembling a Swiss chalet offers a hot tub and scenic river views. The surrounding acreage allows for an abundance of outdoor recreation with a fishing pond, basketball court and tennis courts.
“This truly unique opportunity commanded a record-breaking price. One of the most tranquil properties in the region, this sprawling estate boasts a meticulously maintained main residence and guest homes with the finest luxury appointments. The stunning natural surroundings showcase country living at its finest.”
