Pastureland is always at a premium in these mountains.  The very nature of a mountainous region lends to the scarcity of open fields and pasture.  A search of the Multiple Listing Service for raw land tracts reveals that very few properties offer much if any pasture or gently laying fields.  Whenever we find one with an abundance of such, we jump on it.  As a result, such land carries a premium.  But when the right one comes along, it is sooooo worth it.

This property on the aptly named Cow Branch is just one such property.  The state maintained paved road leads right to this property and you can drive right off the pavement onto the property.  Speaking of driving, Cow Branch Road ends just a short way from the main drive onto the property which means no through traffic.  This is basically “end of the road” privacy, something cherished by many and not available to all.  There are 62 acres, nearly 100% of which are gently laying and rolling pastures.  The entire acreage is fenced and some boundaries lined with forests.  Imagine the opening scene from “The Sound of Music” and you get the idea.  Click here for a video of the property and you’ll understand.

Rolling field runs into rolling field and into another rolling field.  Its simply stunning.  Enhancing the fields themselves are the views.  Because the property is so open, you get views of the mountains in every direction.  These peaks include the iconic Roan Mountain and Roan Bald.  Perch a house on one of these hilltops well off the road and you’ll start to sing “The Hills are Alive”.  There are springs on the property and a small creek branch along one side that are used for watering of livestock along with two drilled wells on the property.

Several farm buildings are situated in a lower area out of sight and provide needed storage of equipment and could be used for animal husbandry.  Some of these buildings are very large and though showing their age, they represent a foundation on which to build afresh.  There is no house on the property, but the possibilities are endless.  Like to hunt?   You can imagine the wild turkey and deer that roam these fields in the early hours.  Want to go solar?  We can’t think of a more well positioned property for maximum solar gain than this one.  Want to plant row crops or an orchard?  Absolutely perfect.  With no zoning or private restrictions, the possibilities are endless.  So call us today for a private showing of this remarkable property.
