One of three year round creeks

We have a new listing for an ideal prepper property close to the town of Black Mountain.  If you’ve read Dr. Bill Forstchen’s seminal book “One Second After“, you’ll recognize the town of Black Mountain as the story is based on our wonderful hometown.  This recently listed property is a very easy 20 minute drive from downtown, yet well hidden from view and off the beaten path.

The Upper Rock Creek property enjoys paved county maintained road frontage that is at road grade.  That means its easy to drive onto the property without having to move a lot of earth.  At three acres, it offers plenty of space and it is surrounded by larger undeveloped land parcels.  There are no zoning restrictions on this property so you can build on it what you wish, including a private shooting range for target practice.

The property already has a 30′ x 70′ gravel surfaced building pad on it along with a driveway, thus making access very easy.  Power has been run onto the property with a meter base installed and ready for power.  A 70 gallon per minute well with pump already installed is on the property also.  For those who don’t know, 70 GPM is a fire hose of a well.  A typical single family home can easily get by on 1.5 gallons per minute.

One of the best features of this property is the amount of live water on it.  There are three small creeks on this property, including a spring fed one that even in the recent drought of 2016 was flowing and going.  The property has excellent southern exposure and about one half of the property is nearly flat while the remainder rises very gently through a rhododendron thicket on a gentle knoll, providing a very nice building site.  There is no visible rock and it appears as though the soils are ideal for septic installation.

Priced at $56,900, this is one of the best values you’ll find.  Call today to get more information about this mountain survival property or let us know how we can help you in your search for that ideal North Carolina mountain retreat property.
