Tract on the Jackson River
Rare Riverfront Tract on
59.95 Acres in
Alleghany County, Virginia
Gathright Dam at Lake Moomaw
Extraordinary offering of prime waterfront property on the pristine Jackson
River in the Natural Well area of northern Alleghany County, Virginia. The
continual cold water releases from the nearby Gathright Dam at Lake Moomaw
have transformed the Jackson River into a classic tailwater stream with a
healthy population of wild rainbow and brown trout. The Jackson River
provides a fly fishing paradise on a nineteen mile section from Gathright
Dam to Covington.
The Sively Tract on the upper Jackson River
tailwater is the assemblage of three parcels of land that in aggregate
contain a total of 59.95 acres and create exceptional stream access. The
owners of this property have rights to fish over a quarter mile of the whole
river and the total stream access on the east side of the river is almost
one half mile. This section of the Jackson River receives the least fishing
pressure and provides some of the best opportunities to catch large fish
that can stretch a measuring tape well over 20 inches.
Most of this beautiful property is rolling open land in a pastoral setting
on an elevated bench overlooking the river with panoramic views of the
Jackson River Valley and surrounding mountains. There are preeminent
building sites on the property that can accommodate a wide variety of
improvements from rustic fishing camps to manor type homes. The property
could be utilized as an upscale hobby farm or equine estate with adequate
land for paddocks and forage production.
The Omni Homestead Resort offering championship golf courses, skeet
shooting, tennis courts, snow skiing, spas, mineral springs and fine dining
is located approximately ten miles from this property in Hot Springs.
Alleghany County is developing the Jackson River Scenic Trail (being the
former railroad bed of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway Company's Hot Springs
Branch) which passes through the Sively Tract running parallel to the
river. This new trail will enhance the phenomenal recreational potential of
the property for such activities s hiking, mountain biking, horse riding and
bird watching. The property is situated on the Alleghany Highlands Blueway
(www.alleghanyhighlandsblueway.com) creating excellent opportunities for
other water sports including kayaking and canoeing. The area provides easy
access to Lake Moomaw and US Forest Service Land in the George Washington
