Waking up to the smell of cool mountain air, watching the fog lift through the mature tree tops, and hearing the rippling stream as it rolls across the smooth creek rocks. This my friend is how you reduce stress in this day and time. Nestled in one of the most pristine mountain settings you’ll find anywhere, is this off-the-grid, self-sustaining, one-of-a-kind, 900 sq/ft custom cabin. Flowing alongside the cabin is a clear mountain spring-fed stream that provides a continuous pure water source while a generator/battery power storage system provides power for everything needed. Along the east side is 1 mile of shared boundary with the Daniel Boone National Forest. This beautiful tract has had extensive habitat and wildlife management plans implemented that have been directed toward returning this environment to its serine, natural state, the way mother nature intended. Being designated as a nature/wildlife preserve for over 2 decades has allowed animal populations to thrive, coexist, and find balance in their natural habitat. A minimal human foot print mentality has been the focus since applying these ongoing habitat improvement plans. This property has been utilized for various hands-on workshops and instructional field days for nature and wildlife education classes over the last 20 years. So many projects have been completed, with some still on-going and active. This tract has tremendous mature timber value and could be selectively harvested in phases for forest regeneration or even investment purposes if so chosen. All the while greatly benefiting wildlife providing additional cover and browse. A greenhouse on the property provides early starts for the garden plants. A well-established orchard of various fruit tree species provides an array of different apples and pears and is located near the cabin as well as a healthy grove of grapes and blueberries. In addition, a second 750 sq/ft unfinished cabin is located near the south boundary and junction of two year-round streams, of which is ready to be finished to one’s tastes. This property has it all when it comes to getting back to nature and pure privacy. If listening to the sounds of whippoorwills and relaxing in a vast mountain setting on a peaceful evening sounds like what you’ve been longing for, then come experience for yourself the serenity and untouched beauty of this property. With so much to offer it won’t last long so give me a call now for your private showing!
