These 55+/- acres in northern Mitchell County north of Asheville border the famous Appalachian Trail.  Nestled up high on a mountaintop, this property sits right on the line of North Carolina and Tennessee with huge views and elevations topping out at more than 4,000′ above sea level.  This means cooler temperatures in the summer.   With some modest trimming, you can have tremendous views of Roan Mountain.

The property is easily accessible year round as it is just off Highway 226 which crosses the mountain coming out of Bakersville (county seat) and over into Unicoi, Tennessee.  Drive time to downtown Asheville is approximately 45 minutes.  The drive to the property is via a USFS maintained wide and gentle gravel road.  This road follows the ridge and is very easy.  Any kind of passenger vehicle can use it.  This is rare in our mountains.  The USFS road is locked just beyond the property, thus making this is dead end road.  Additionally, the property is bound on every side by USFS land.  That means there will never be a house or encroaching neighbor to this property.  Total privacy and no restrictions.  Click here for an interactive map.

Power will need to be brought from the right-of-way of Highway 226 which is about 4,000 linear feet away.  Or you could go totally off-grid with solar power as much of the property has a southerly orientation.  There are multiple creeks/springs on the property that provide drinking water and water for irrigation.  One section of the property was at one time a homestead and you can see remnants of the old foundation from long ago.  This area makes for an ideal home site or garden area.  Additional places within the acreage offer other home sites as well.

This is truly a nature lovers or hunter’s paradise.  Ideal for a mountain getaway.  Call today for more details.
