When word got out last winter that the 26-acre Burnett/King parcel on New Haw Creek Road was to be sold, the Haw Creek Community Association set to work trying to find a buyer who would be interested in preserving some of this exceptional property. We found a local buyer committed to preserving the pasture area in a conservation easement, however, his offer was not accepted when the property went on the market in late July.
The buyer, whose higher-priced offer was accepted, is now in due diligence, a process that can take several months. Actual transfer of ownership will likely not occur until early 2024. The new owner and his family have a long history in Asheville. He has graciously agreed to attend HCCA’s community meeting on November 14, to share his vision for the property. We're hopeful the new owner will be open to partnership opportunities such as, perhaps, a greenway along the creek.
See our events page for details on and to register for this public meeting.
