These 102 acres eight miles north of Marshall present a great opportunity for anyone looking to have a working farm, horses, cattle, homestead or family compound.  Situated just 8 miles north of US 25/70 on a paved state maintained road, this is a very easily accessible property, yet well off the beaten path.  There are several hundred feet of frontage on Walnut Creek Road and best of all, its all at road grade, meaning you can just drive right off onto the property; no steep driveway or grading required.

Walnut Creek actually runs through the property.  That is, “through” the property and not just alongside it as is the case with so many creeks and streams.  This means you can own both sides of the creek.  And its a very nice creek as well, being about four to five feet across and runs year round.  Additionally, there’s a spring fed pond within the lower half of the property. Its about 1/3 acre in surface area and is clean.  Would make for an excellent source for irrigation, livestock or fire protection.  The area around it consists of approximately seven acres of rich bottom land ideal for row crops or livestock, and if you wanted to expand the pond, it could readily be done by excavating more area.  Click here for an interactive map.

On the opposite side of Walnut Creek is another seven acre field gently rising up to the wood line.  This has been historically used for horse pasture but could be utilized for most anything.  Beyond the upper pasture, the property becomes heavily wooded with a mixture of topography.  There is a network of old logging roads that wind their way through the upper reaches leading to several gentle finger ridges and knolls that would make for excellent homesites.  In fact, the possibility exists to create multiple home sites on this property given its public road frontage and easy topography.

Additionally, the property has electrical service on the property provided by French Broad Electric Membership Cooperative.  Even better FBEMC has been extending high speed fiber optic internet service throughout its service area in recent years and is actively installing such along Walnut Creek Road.  This will make remote work and learning a breeze on this property.  Given the price point, topographic features and ease of access, this one won’t last long.  So call us today to schedule a showing.
