Private building site by stream

I recently walked a 208 parcel for a client in Ashe County, NC about 25 minutes northwest of the quaint town of West Jefferson.  West Jefferson is a thriving mountain resort town where nearly every storefront in downtown is leased up.  There’s even a Lowe’s Home Improvement warehouse in town.  The property will make an ideal survival property or family compound for the right party, yet having access to a small town like West Jefferson will make life comfortable while the lights stay on.

Situated at the end of an unpaved county road in a very rural area, this property offers acres and acres of pastureland and open farm fields as well a many more acres of woodlands.  The views, if you want them, are excellent and some of the pasture is situated on beautiful knolls.  The ridges and much of the acreage is in well managed forestland covered with hardwoods and rhododendrons.  The entire 208 acres are fenced and because there is a heard of dairy cows on the property, the forest floor is kept free of underbrush.  It makes for a great hunting location.

Along one side is a fairly large year round stream, and passing through the body of the property is a very large stream that passes by what I would consider the prime home site.  There is more than enough drop in elevation along the stream to provide head pressure for a micro-hydro generator.  That’s a good thing because the house site is about 3,000′ from the nearest power at the end of the county road.  But if you wanted to be off the grid, then this stream could provide what you need.  Additionally, the area gets plenty of southern exposure so that solar power is certainly an option.

Asking $430,000 and the seller is motivated.  Call us today at 828-773-8090 for more information or click here to go to the information page.
