This Spruce Pine getaway provides outstanding privacy yet convenience.  How often do you get to tell friends, “Just follow the Blue Ridge Parkway to my driveway”?  With this property, you can do just that.

This 59 acre gem of a property is located off the Blue Ridge Parkway at mile marker 324.8, placing it less than 15 minutes to Spruce Pine yet it is bordered by US Forest Service Lands and Foothills Conservancy Lands.  That means when you look out around you, you’re looking at land that will be forever protected.  There are countless acres of forest land to explore from your doorstep.  One of the beauties of the property is that it is so gentle in topography, yet high enough to take in outstanding views.  There are two fields of approximately six and seven acres each with tremendous views that will have you singing “The hills are alive……”  Its just that beautiful.  Of course you can hike for miles and miles through the surrounding forests.  If you need to run to the grocery store, there is a Walmart just four miles away, no kidding.  Spruce Pine has a fine hospital and it is just six miles away, therefore, you fee as though you’re in the middle of nowhere, yet you have all the day to day services you need right at your finger tips.

The house itself features three bedrooms and three baths in the main house with a spacious screened porch.  At this elevation, the weather is so mild that there isn’t any central air conditioning, its all natural.  To help warm the house, there is a wood stove insert on the main level and a wood stove on the lower level.  A detached two car garage features two large (unheated) bedrooms above it as well as room enough to add a small kitchen and bath if desired.  This area is great for youngsters wanting to “camp out” in their own space next door.  A large, well kept barn provides ample storage space for vehicles and equipment.

Access to the property is through the well known Bear Den RV Resort.  The sellers of this property are the prior owners of the RV resort and have retained unencumbered access from the Blue Ridge Parkway, through the resort to their own private gravel drive.  The upshot to this is that the RV resort maintains the bulk of the access to the property, then once on the 59 acres, you have your own wide gravel road that serves this property and two adjoining family homes.  But don’t worry, you when you’re on your deck or porch, you won’t hear or see anything of the RV resort.  But in case you don’t care to drive through the resort, there is access via a separate entrance that bypasses the resort, it just requires the installation of a driveway.
