Located on the edge of the Blue Ridge Escarpment, these 245 acres are high elevation with tremendous views to the south.  Access is on paved Highway 226A which is a winding tourist oriented road that offers spectacular views and vistas.   The famous Blue Ridge Parkway is literally steps away on foot and vehicular access to the Parkway is just one mile.  The mountain town of Spruce Pine is only ten minutes away.  Therefore, this property has excellent access year round, yet a very pristine setting.

The property descends away from the road down into a thick forest.  Once you are in about 200 yards into the property, a well established logging road develops that leads to the interior.  Unseen from the road frontage is the gentle topography you’ll encounter as you get further into the property.  There are numerous gently laying plateaus and finger ridges on which you can build and enjoy tremendous unspoiled views.

Within the property, the headwaters of Sycamore Branch are located.  The creek grows in size as it flows down through the property providing the possibility of micro-hydroelectric generation.  Or if you want to go solar, that is readily possible due to the south facing orientation of the property.   There are no restrictions on the property so you are free to build what you’d like and enjoy it as you’d like.  The property is known to have been used by the “Over the Mountain Men” on their way to defeat the British at the Battle of Kings Mountain during our War of Independence.

With 245 acres, you’ll have total privacy as only few can experience.  There are no houses in view or encroaching upon you.  This is total woodlands full of wildlife and opportunity.  Yet you’re close to civilization yet without the traffic.  A very short drive, and you’re at the iconic Switzerland Inn, known for its hospitable accommodations, dining and recreation.  Or hop on the Blue Ridge Parkway and enjoy some of its 300+ miles of non-commercialized scenery.  Like having a national park in your backyard.
