These six unrestricted acres just south of Marion, NC in the foothills of western North Carolina offer a lot of features at a small budget.  If you’ve been looking for a small, private getaway that is unrestricted from any private covenants or home owners association, this could be it.

Not only is this six acres, but it is already improved with everything you need to start building and living.  The prior owner had a manufactured home on it near the road and therefore, the property already has a driveway cut, cleared building site, septic system installed, a well installed and electrical service to the property.  That is, the “heavy lifting” has been done.  These items are often things that catch new property owners by surprise, but by having them already installed, there are no surprises to be had.  This represents not just a cost savings (the cost of replacing these improvements have continued to rise), but equally important is the ease they represent.  No waiting on permits or installation.  Just call the power company to connect service and that’s about it. (of course check all local ordinances first)

The property has several hundred feet of frontage on a paved state maintained side road in a very rural area of northern Rutherford County just below the McDowell County line.  To the south, you have the lovely small town of Rutherfordton and to the north the town of Marion in about 15 minutes.  The paved frontage means that you do not have to contend with any shared driveways or easements across other land to get onto this one.

The remainder of the acreage features several acres of gently laying wooded areas ideal for additional building.  It is easy to step off the pavement and walk the gentle slope to the interior of the property where you’re ensconced in thick forests.  Its a very private setting and within this area are numerous areas having topography that is ideal for building.  Running through the property is a large, year round creek that provides ample surface water for a variety of purposes.  There is no identified flood plain area.  Hop across the creek and you’ll find more usable acreage on the other side.

The property is in an unzoned area of the county, so manufactured homes, RV’s, tiny homes, etc., are allowed.  There are no private restrictions, so if you want to have livestock that is fine as is hunting.  Perhaps you could set up your own private shooting range with the natural backstop of the topo.

This one offers a lot for the dollar, so call today to schedule a site visit.
