This 30 acre bugout land is an ideal place to build your dream home prepper compound.  Located approximately 20 minutes west of Bryson City near Fontana Lake, its situated in the far western mountains of North Carolina.  Its approximately an hour and a half drive to Asheville from this property.  Much of land in the immediate area is part of the Nantahala National Forest and Great Smokies National Park.  The result is that this a very rural setting.

Although it is rural, access is very easy via paved county maintained roads.  Drive time to Robbinsville which has all the retail daily services one might need is just 23 minutes.  As for recreational opportunities, they abound on the nearly 16 square miles of Fontana Lake which is a very short drive from this property, and whitewater rafting and sports are available at the nationally known Nantahala Outdoor Center just twenty minutes away.  Therefore, while this property is rural, its still accessible with loads of fun nearby.

The property itself sits just off a paved county road and is situated behind a tall mountain berm between the property and the road.  That is, this property is totally out of sight from the public road, yet only a few hundred feet away.  As you drive up into the property via one of two access drives, the property suddenly opens up before you into a picturesque pastoral scene.  There are approximately ten acres of gently rolling pasture ringed by thick forests on all sides, giving the property a real sense of privacy.  The view from across the pasture to the mountains in the distance is beautiful.

A very large stream traverses the property from east to west and is available for irrigation, water and possibly power generation.  It appears as though the flow of the water and the change in elevation will provide enough head pressure for one to install a micro-hydro electric generator in the stream.  Furthermore, the pasture is oriented on an east/west axis, meaning that it gets plenty of solar gain throughout the entire day.  A solar panel array would be well suited on this property.  If you don’t want to install an off-grid system, then a residential power line located in the road right-of-way can be tapped for service.

On the other side of the creek, the property is wooded and climbs up in elevation.  There are numerous old logging roads that can be traversed with a 4×4 and used for hunting, hiking or ATV riding.  The forest is thick with vegetation and provides excellent wildlife habitat as well as a fuel resource with the various hardwoods.  There are several potential building sites within the wooded section if one wants total privacy.

In summary, this property really does have it all for a prepper property or bugout property: (1) remote yet accessible location; (2) total privacy; (3) pasture; (4) large stream; (5) alternate power sources such as solar and hydro; (6) woodlands; (7) trails; (8) gentle topography for building; (9) views.  Call us today to schedule a private showing.
