The exceptional and unique physical characteristics found on this tract of land with 175.096 acres, more or less, create wonderful opportunities for this property to be utilized as a classic hobby farm or premier recreational tract. Stunning mountain views, a good mix of open land and upland hardwood with mixed stands of pine, gentle topography in comparison to other large acreage tracts in the area and the quiet privacy of this pristine setting help to form the foundation of this special property. Other noteworthy features include a cave on this property and long common boundaries with US Forest Service Land which greatly enhance the recreational potential for a wide variety of outdoor activities. The area is well known for excellent big game hunting with an abundant population of white tail deer, wild turkey and black bear.
Approximately 30 acres of this property is in open land located off State Route 687 (Jackson River Turnpike). The topography of the open land is agreeable and this portion of the property can be easily maintained with farm equipment. The open land creates equestrian possibilities on this property. A good interior road provides access through some of the woodland and would be an excellent horseback riding trail.
Improvements on this property include a two story frame house, detached frame garage, workshop, pole barn and frame utility building. The dwelling was built in 1975 and could be used as a year round residence, second home or upscale hunting camp. The expansive home site includes fruit trees and flowering shrubs. The property has a long asphalt paved driveway to the home site and some board fencing around the small fields.
This property is situated just 7.5 miles from the renowned amenities of The Omni Homestead Resort in Hot Springs. Lake Moomaw is located nearby as will be the upper trailhead of the newly developed Jackson River Scenic Trail. The incredible recreational potential of this tract provides outstanding opportunities for hunting, hiking, horseback riding, caving, searching for wildflowers or just relaxing and enjoying the spectacular mountain scenery.
