Sively 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 National Forest.
