Beaverdam Valley's Lynn Cove Estate Beautifully Combines Country and Convenience in Asheville

Beaverdam Valley is one of North Asheville’s most desirable neighborhoods, and for good reason. The community offers easily accessible yet tucked-away retreats, hidden gems that sit close to town but feel worlds away. And once in a while, one of those enviable estates comes on the market: Introducing 167 Lynn Cove Road.

Lynn Cove Estate AshevilleAn expansive property on 14 acres, 167 Lynn Cove Road includes a show-stopping, modern log home; a charming historic barn; exquisite stonework throughout; a swimming pool and hot tub for entertaining family and friends; all enveloped in meticulously maintained grounds. A wraparound covered porch allows you to soak in the sumptuous surroundings – towering trees, a creek running along the road, and a wide-open, level field for gardening/play. A great room with a vaulted pine ceiling and wood-burning stone fireplace offer a welcoming space to relax. There’s no shortage of storage: two-car garage, many closets within the home, and more room under the barn. What makes this home even more attractive is that it’s 3 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway, outside city limits but still very close to town – and within the popular Asheville City Schools district.

To be so close to everything yet so tucked away is truly special. The Beaverdam Valley, especially Lynn Cove Road, offers the experience that many dream of when they move to Asheville.” 

Lynn Cove Road 167Beaverdam Valley’s rich history

The community of Beaverdam Valley begins at the corner of Merrimon Avenue and Beaverdam Road and stretches east – it’s approximately 3 miles long and 1 mile wide. The original community included the bottomlands now covered by Beaver Lake, built in 1929 by the city of Asheville. The area was named Beaverdam Creek by early English explorers because of the numerous beaver dams along the main stream from the French Broad River to the upper valley.

Beaverdam Valley’s once-undisturbed forests contained a variety of native trees such as chestnuts, massive oaks and tulip poplars. Native Americans hunted large game along the creek, including wood bison, elk, white tail deer and buffalo, along with smaller game like muskrats, rabbits and possums. The area has evolved to contain dairy farms, cornfields, log cabins and antebellum farmhouses. Today, Beaverdam Valley boasts sprawling properties, newer subdivisions, and condominium communities. Beaverdam Lake
