Looking for Class A trout stream frontage? Look no further! This one is both remarkable and affordable. Located just three miles north of the town of Bakersville on a publicly maintained paved road, these 2.63 acres enjoy over 300′ of frontage on Little Rock Creek. Yes, this is smaller than our normal listing, however, the attributes of this property make it an absolute “must have” for the fisherman.
The property has over 400′ of paved road frontage on Pumpkin Patch Road which is a short dead end road that is clean as a whistle (i.e. no junky homes or cars on blocks). Its an easy drive into town and a beautiful drive at that. The remote location ensures privacy and security from the large metro areas. From the pavement, the topography gently drops away down to the wide forested part of the property, thus allowing for an easy driveway placement that is just right.
Once inside the property, you’ll find a mature forest of pine trees. Its like walking into a wooden cathedral with the forest floor completely free of underbrush and briars. Its almost magical and serene. The topography is very gentle and placement of a dwelling will be easy due to the excellent topography. There are no private restrictions or home owners association with which to contend, so feel free to design your own home just how you like it. A small road/drive already exists within the forested portion. Also, the bulk of the property is well above the flood plain, thus you can place a dwelling most anywhere. There is even a bubbling spring coming out of the hillside on this property which provide potable drinking water without the need for drilling a well.
But the crown jewel of this acreage is the river front. The property has over 300 linear feet along Little Rock Creek which is a Class A Trout Stream. Calling it a “creek” doesn’t do it justice. This is a river! Its approximately 40′ wide at normal water levels. Along this stretch you’ll find cascading falls, deep pools, shoals, and eddies behind the large boulders. Its simply stunning. Another great thing is that all of the river frontage is easily accessible. So often when looking at river front properties, you find the river banks are impossibly steep and inaccessible. Not here! You can simply stroll down to the waters edge and get in, anywhere along the frontage. This is truly a special property. Click here for a short video of the property.
To give you another idea as to how good the fishing happens to be, this stretch of Little Rock Creek has hosted the Annual Casting For Hope Fly Fishing Competition. Casting For Hope is an Asheville, NC based non-profit supporting ovarian cancer research and education. The competition draws top anglers from around the country, and is a festive atmosphere.
