52 acres of prime Alexander area real estate. Open Use zoning. No deed restrictions. Retreat center? Vineyard? Sportsman’s paradise? Self-sufficient family compound? 40+ acres of mature, thriving forest surround the main compound with roughly eight acres cleared. There is wonderful well water, plus spring-fed and rain-driven creeks, as well as nearly 2,000 feet along Newfound Creek. Cleared trails and old logging roads allow access to almost the entire gently sloping parcel. At the heart of the former home of Doc Humphrey’s Blue Ridge Beagles sits a well-loved, sprawling light- and view-filled ‘70s rancher that offers 4 BRs (incl. primary suite on main), 2.5 baths, open living spaces, enormous deck, attached garage, tons of basement space, and a wood-burning fireplace on each level. Great southern exposure around the house for solar and gardening, and biodiversity abounds with herons, hawks, and deer passing through. Private country estate only 10 minutes to grocery and 20 to downtown.

Originally called Turkey Creek, the Leicester community was founded in 1829 with the establishment of a local post office. Frontiersman Leicester Chapman, an early Postmaster of that office, renamed the area for his own namesake, the Earl of Leicester. Today, the bucolic community is filled with local farms, artisans, and nature lovers who enjoy the quiet mountain views.
