This property is being offered in three configurations: 70 acres, 50 acres and 20 acres.  Located approximately 15 minutes north of Marion and five minutes from the hamlet of Little Switzerland which is situated on the Blue Ridge Parkway.  The property was originally improved years ago to be a mountain subdivision with roads put in place.  During the 2008 meltdown, the project was mothballed, but the improvements remained and held up surprisingly well.  Today, these roads make getting around the property a breeze.

The property itself features gently rolling hills and valleys rising up to over 2,400 feet in elevation.  There are numerous building sites with mountain views and gentle topography for building.  But the real gems of the property are the creeks and waterfalls.  Yes, there are multiple waterfalls on this property that flow year round, fed by three different creeks.  Imagine falling asleep to the sound of the water or playing in them with the kids.  Every prepper or homesteader needs a good water source, well, this one has it in abundance.  We’re talking about some substantial waterfalls, not trickling creeks.

There are no restrictions or covenants on the land, and the county zoning is “open use” meaning the land can be used for just about anything.  Additionally, another adjoining 50 acres can be made available as well.  So call us today for a private showing.  At this price, this is a real value play.  Given its proximity to Asheville, the Blue Ridge Parkway, creeks and road improvements, this is one you must see.
