This 152 acre bugout property is located right on the NC/TN state lines approximately 45 minutes north of Weaverville and 30 minutes from Johnson City, TN.  Both of these major metropolitan areas provide all the day to day services one might need, and they are both easily accessible from the property.  (Note: this property can be purchased in two sections: one comprising the house, pond and approximately 20 acres and the second being the remaining acreage.  Call us for details.)

What makes this property special is that it encompasses and entire cove and valley.  This means that when you stand within the property at its base and look up around you, everything in view is part of the property.  The property is of a wedge shape with approximately 18 acres of fields and pasture in the bottom, then rising up to three ridges that provide total privacy.  US Highway 226 is less than one mile away, thus making the property easy to reach.  However, its well hidden from view.  You must turn off the paved highway onto a gravel road for a short bit, then another private gravel drive in order to get to the property.  It actually looks as if you’re driving through someone’s front yard, however, the access is deeded and recorded thus ensuring unencumbered access, yet maximum privacy.  Portions of the ridge top abut US Forest Service lands and the Appalachian Trail is only 1/4 mile (as the crow flies) distant from the ridge.  This means the property not only has its 152 acres, but is adjoined by hundreds of acres of additional national forest lands.  Click here for an interactive 3D map.

There are creeks and springs on the property including one substantial year round creek that feeds a crystal clear pond.  The pond is stocked with bass and bream.  The fields have been used for crops as well as grazing and more recently as hunting lands.  In fact, there are at least five hunting stands on the property now.  The owners report (and has plenty of photos to support the claim) that there are countless does and bucks that roam the fields munching on the heirloom apples.  There are bear, bobcats, and turkey galore.  Its a hunters paradise.

Complimenting the land is a three bedroom one bath house that makes or an ideal hunting lodge.  Its modest in style and design ,but comfortable and has a wood stove that will heat the entire house.  A wide wrap around front porch allows you to literally sit on the front porch with your 30/30 and hunt.  Behind the house is separate spring house with partially finished guest quarters.  Water to the house is provided by a gushing stream which is fed into a 1,000 gallon stainless steel holding tank normally used in the dairy business.  There is a separate wood shed/barn and steel shipping container that will convey.

Overall, this property makes for an ideal bugout or survival property.  It has privacy, security, water, agriculture lands, wildlife, timber and a comfortable dwelling to boot! Additionally, the adjoining 98 acre parcel, also with pasture could be made available for purchase.   So call us today for a private showing of this exceptional property.
