This approximately 7.8 acre secluded, heavily wooded, private property is nestled in the spellbinding Smoky Mountains. Remove yourself from the city! You’re minutes from Lake Hiawassee, US forest land. A half hour drive to downtown Murphy for shopping, dining, Erlanger Medical Center, Harrahs Casino. You will cross the Nantahala Gorge and kayakers training on class 1 rapids. Hunting and fishing abound, golf. Lowes, Tractor Supply is in Murphy & popular Ingles grocery with their fresh produce, organics, salad bar. The property has underground utilities such as electric to the lot border. There are two natural springs and two streams running through the wooded lot. There is a hilltop location with approved septic plan good for 5 years for a home to be built with views of the surrounding mountains. The north hillside is nicely treed and obscured for a low profile structure that would not be readily visible if that was desired. Nearby Murphy has a local college, quality restaurants and employment. Property has asphalt road. Land is along the quarter mile or so stretch of the drive in. The area is sparsely populated. The fall season reveals striking colors as the leaves change. There is plentiful wildlife in the area and views of surrounding hills and valley to the southeast. The hill side has been rough cleared. There are no subdivision restrictions, just a small fee for the road maintenance. It is a very quiet, safe and cozy property. Peaches grow here and a number were planted a few years ago. It’s like having a little piece of New Zealand hobbit-land.
Pan for gold or hunt semi-precious stones for fun! This location was thoroughly researched for its resources and privacy, has a great growing season. You won’t experience those concerns like earthquake swarms that the West is experiencing; no fracking contaminated water and rough winters like Wyoming; great weather, no extreme heat in the summers. Dark sky viewing with backyard telescopes. A pond would be easy with clay that is available subsurface; the location was planned to the southeast by one of the springs. Deer are common, wildlife abound like wild turkeys seen running across the road. Cherokee County is one of the least populated in the Carolinas! Off grid potential.
Asking $128.9k with owner financing, discount for cash. Great property for homesteading or simply access the quality contractors available (unlike many of the remote locations to which people have been flocking). We can assist your set-up just ask! Community water available. The altitude has all the seasons with few snowfalls that are light and the climate includes moderate summers. The hilltop is nestled among other mountains in a beautiful holler. The soil is very fertile and the trees include tall poplars (an indication of available underground water, ask locals), maple, sour wood trees (source of award winning honey), flowering dogwood trees and wild blueberries, raspberries, grapes. Ginseng will grow well-priced higher than gold. Email [email protected] .com or call, text.
