This small parcel lives as though it is thousands of acres in size.  The reason is that this parcel adjoins a 19,000+ acre USFS parcel just south of the Blue Ridge Parkway.  If you’re seeking total privacy with no private restrictions whereby you can do what you want, this could be for you.

The property is easily accessible via NC Highway 80 north of Marion which gets you to within a half mile of the property.  From there, you turn off onto a private gravel roadbed for approximately 1/2 mile passing nothing but woods and crossing the large Buck Creek.  The approach is certainly enough to keep any curiosity seekers away, yet the drive in is relatively easy and flat as it follows a small creek bed.  There is only one neighbor on this gravel drive which has the benefit of electrical service.

Once at the property, there is a spot for installation of a driveway up onto the primary building site on the property and just beyond this spot the gravel road crosses the small creek with USFS on the right side and the property on the left.  This property is blessed with an abundance of water and wildlife.  Its steep in some places and no room for cleared fields or pastures, but enough for a single family home at one spot where you’ll also find a spring box that can serve this property and also provides water to the neighbors.  Its a wooded cove with total privacy and quiet.  The price is already discounted to reflect the potential cost of installing a driveway.

The deed states there to be two acres more or less, however, the legal description is somewhat vague therefore it is recommended a survey be completed to ascertain the exact acreage.  In using the measurement tool of the county GIS site, it shows there to be approximately 1.3 acres more or less.  Regardless of a tenth of an acre here or there, the fact remains that this property adjoins 19,000+ acres of forest land which one can access freely and be assured that no one will be living on it.  In effect, for the purchase price of this small acreage, you can live as though you own thousands!  Call us today for more information and directions.
