This new listing of 50 acres offers easy access, yet remoteness and privacy.  Located approximately 20 minutes north of Marion, NC and less than ten minutes from the vacation spot of Little Switzerland, this property offers easy access to all your daily needs, in a beautiful environment.  The famous Blue Ridge Parkway is directly above the property and can be accessed in a short ten minute drive up Highway 226A.

The property was part of a larger 159 acre tract that was originally slated to be made into a second home subdivision.  For various reasons, that dream didn’t materialize, however, major infrastructure was built and today this property has a direct entrance on rural Highway 226A with thousands of feet of interior roads.  These roads are well built and are 45′ rights-of-way finished with a gravel surface and storm drainage features.  They are in remarkably good condition, allowing most any passenger vehicle to traverse the property.  Its highly unusual to find a rural land tract of this nature having such ease of access.  There are other parcels beyond this property that share the entrance the the primary road through it, and some of those are available for sale as well.  All totaled, out of the parent 159 acre tract, there are eight total parcels, and a road maintenance agreement is being put into place to ensure proper maintenance of the primary road (High Falls Drive).

One unique feature of this parcel is a very flat open field with great views.  It was originally planned as a grass surfaced airstrip for light aircraft.  Today its a large open area idea for building, livestock, recreation, etc.  There are no restrictions on the property so you can build what you want, grow what you want, hunt, ride ATV’s, etc.  Some of the best features are the creeks and waterfalls.  There are at least two large waterfalls on this property that enhance the enjoyment of the property.  Furthermore, with Sycamore Branch running through the property, and with its flow and fall, there is ample water pressure to operate a micro-hydroelectric turbine if desired.

So if you’re looking for a mid-sized property, with no restrictions, excellent access, interior road improvements, this could be it.  It could be your self sustaining bugout property!  Call today for a private showing.
