This outstanding 10 acres of privacy near Waynesville NC offers security and homesteading opportunities, all with amazing long range mountain views. Located near the famous Max Patch, this property is approximately 20 minutes north of Waynesville (home to our friends at Carolina Readiness Supply) and sits at over 4,000′ above sea level. The owner created this mountaintop hide out as a large lot, limited parcel subdivision with the intention of prepping and homesteading. While there are covenants on the property, they were written to allow the things that prepping demands such as the ability to raise livestock, have a greenhouse, build a pond, hunt and shoot, installation of solar panel arrays, etc. Therefore, this property is in a community of “like minded” folks who understand prepping and homesteading.
The drive to the property from the public road is very easy via an exceptionally well maintained private shared road. One climbs over a thousand feet in elevation, thus separating you from the valley below for maximum privacy. On the ten acres is a small pond fed by a spring. This is an unusual feature at such a high elevation. The bulk of the 10 acres is wooded with portions that lay very gently, making it conducive to building. There is a well maintained, easy grade deeded roadbed directly to the property and underground electricity and telephone service is at the property. That in itself is a huge advantage over many such rural properties. There is even a small outbuilding one can use for storage.
This property is ideal for a small or large cabin in the woods with a view. Unlike so many rural tracts, this one has excellent, deeded access and utilities. One could set up an RV or “fifth-wheel” on the property connected to a septic system (was previously permitted for a septic system) and power. Though the covenants don’t allow year round permanent occupancy of such, you can certainly set it up for a season, depart and then return shortly thereafter, thus maximizing your use and enjoyment. The minimum heated square footage for a permanent dwelling is 1,200 square feet.
Additionally, the owner will consider financing the bulk of the purchase price with a sufficient down payment. That makes obtaining and owning this amazing ten acres that much easier. If one desires more, the adjacent parcel is also available which features a three bedroom house, garage, greenhouse on 14+ acres. More photos to follow.
