This 40 acre farm outside Marion is situated on Rock Creek, making for an ideal family getaway, mini-farm, hunting retreat or bugout property.  Situated approximately seven miles south of I-40 and Marion in McDowell County, this property is very private yet conveniently located.  There is a paved state maintained road to within 1/3 mile of the property, and then a shared gravel surfaced private drive to the property from there.  This property is in the “foothills” and as such, the topography and terrain are very gentle, making it a breeze to get to when needed.  The area is known for its milder temperatures and extended growing seasons.

Once you leave the private drive, you enter the property along a flat driveway that crosses Rock Creek.  Rock Creek is a major stream in this area and provides abundant water for irrigation and livestock.  There are approximately 5+ acres of flat field and pasture as well as nearly 2,500 linear feet of frontage on Rock Creek.  For approximately half this frontage, the property is situated on both sides of the creek.  The remainder of the land is wooded with newer growth timber and rises gently to a knoll up above the house about midway into the property.  Great hunting land.  We were nearly blindsided by a startled deer rushing through the woods during our first visit to the property.

There’s not another house in view.  It is a very private and quiet setting that is ideal for family recreation, growing small crops or raising livestock as well a prepping.  No restrictions mean you can do pretty much what you want: hunt, ATV’s, horses, livestock, orchard, subdivide for other homes, etc.  There is an abundance of solar gain on this property and plenty of room to expand the fields.  Click here for an interactive aerial map.

The house is a modest, older frame house in good, habitable condition.  Nothing fancy, but very comfortable with a paneled living room featuring a wood stove, two generously sized bedrooms, a full bath, dining room and small kitchen.  Off to the side is a screened porch and on the front is a covered porch overlooking the lawn and creek beyond. This would make for a great hunting cabin or starter home for someone.  Call us today for a private showing.
