Theres something magical about that spot where the foothills become mountains, known to geographers as the Blue Ridge Escarpment. Imagine viewing that spot from 3,848 feet elevation atop your very own piece of paradise. This incredible 36-acre property in Watauga County includes 10 acres of open land, along with historic Blue Ridge Parkway-era rock walls and a gazebo. This property is truly the optimal site for building a one-of-a-kind mountain home.
With access from the property directly to the Blue Ridge Parkway and Hwy 421, youre never far from exploring the adventures of the Blue Ridge Mountains or taking a quick trip into town for the essentials. A mature oak forest provides acres of wooded land to explore right in your own backyard. Or, if youd rather venture out, pay a visit to the Elk Mountain overlook, immediately adjacent to the property, or take a hike on the renowned Mountains-to-Sea Trail, also in close proximity.
Most mountain vistas with breathtaking views like these require long, precarious drives into isolation, but this UniquePlace is convenient to nearly every attraction in the High Country. In 30 minutes or less, you can be in the quaint mountain towns of Blowing Rock, Boone, or West Jefferson. And in under an hour, you can be hitting the slopes, paddling down the New River, or gazing at the incredible 150-foot Linville Falls.
This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a piece of natural beauty in NCs beloved Blue Ridge Mountains and make your home amongst the clouds.
