“Occupying rare air in the world of real estate, and set against the breathtaking backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Blue Fish Farm is very much one of a kind. The incredible blend of craftmanship and luxury amenities all sitting on such a special piece of land in the North Carolina mountains easily make this the southeast’s premier legacy estate.”
