Looking for privacy on land, but with some improvements?   Look no further.  This property is more than 33+/- acres of vacant land.  Many years ago, the owners built a driveway into the property up to a house site tucked away from the road and commenced building a second home.  As sometimes happens, life got in the way and their plans changed such that they stopped the project, but not until after they’d made significant improvements to the property.

After building the 1,200′ driveway, including installing a large culvert to cross Jarret Creek which runs along and through the property, they extended electrical service to the house site and pulled in an RV, then built a shed over it.  They stayed there while working on the concrete block basement foundation for their future home.  The foundation was built and stands in good shape today, ready for its next owner.  They also installed a septic system and located a spring behind the house, and tapped into it for water.  That was decades ago, therefore, the condition of these systems is unknown, but they have never been used.  One benefit is that with these systems in place, we know the ability to build at this spot exists, which is more than can be said of many vacant land tracts.  The driveway at one time had a gravel surface on it, and the owner states they were able to drive their vehicles up to their RV with ease.  The road has seen become overgrown, the grade is gentle and it wouldn’t take much effort by a grading contractor to put it back into drivable condition.

The drive to the property is a very easy one from the town of Marshall just ten minutes away.  Marshall has all you’d need for day to day living, and within 2,200′ of this property is the Big Laurel Creek.  Big Laruel is a major trout fishing stream and during the season, you can’t travel far without seeing anglers casting their lines.  Its a lovely drive and having Big Laurel so close provides a great recreational resource.  Additionally, Jarret Cove Road is a paved state maintained road, meaning you don’t have to share an easement with a neighbor, and the road is a dead end meaning no through traffic.

With no restrictions, paved access on a dead end road, a large stream, existing driveway, septic system, spring and power, this property has a lot to offer at a bargain price.  Call today for more information.
