Rare opportunity to develop your private custom built equestrian estate

Bryson City, Swain County, North Carolina

Rare opportunity to develop your own private custom equestrian estate. This unusually well laying property already has several acres of developed pasture with the potential to double the current pasturage. The timber cleared for expanded pasture can be used to build your custom home and barn that reflects the refinement of your unique tastes. There is already an excavated building site with a well and a 3-bed septic installed. Beyond this building site there are five or six other possible sites for home and/or a barn complex for stalls, training/riding arena, and contained turn-out. All building sites come with exquisite views and most have partial to complete clearing. A spring-fed-year-round creek borders the meadow pastures for a continuous supply of fresh water for the horses. Riding trails can be developed around and through this parcel for private casual riding without ever leaving your own property. This picturesque 30-acre prize, is situated between two ridge tops, providing quiet solitude and restful privacy in a personal valley. I spent two hours walking the property on my first visit and during that time, I didn’t hear a plane go over, hear any traffic noises, or hear a sound from neighbors. Serenity abounds. Fontana Lake and the world renowned Tsali Recreation Area are no more than a five-minute drive. Tsali offers 40 miles of dedicated equestrian trails, some of the finest that Appalachia has to offer. Adjacent to the Tsali Recreational area is access to hundreds of miles of Nantahala National Forest off-roads and trails for an endless array of riding opportunities. The area offers an endless array of recreational options to entertain the non-equestrian in the family. The Nantahala Outdoor Recreation Center, just minutes away, provides white water rafting, kayaking, and canoeing. Nantahala lake offers boating and fishing. National Forest and Smoky Mountain National Park trails provide for endless miles of hiking, mountain biking, backpacking, and camping. The Blue Ridge Parkway is a short drive away and offers the most scenic views in the Eastern USA. During the day in Cherokee, you can visit museums and the authentic historic Oconaluftee Indian Village. For night-life there is the seasonal amphitheater featuring the production of, “Unto These Hills”, a dramatic theater extravaganza documenting the history of the Cherokee people. To further the nighttime revelry, Cherokee is home to Harrah’s Casino that offers gaming, five-star dining, and top-of-the-chart concerts. There are not many acreages of this size available in the area and next to none that offer quality equestrian friendly terrain with this much unmatched solitude and privacy. For those looking to establish a family compound situated on an equestrian oasis in scenic Appalachia, this is the perfect place. Come home to your Smoky Mountain equestrian paradise.

165 Acre Horse+Cattle Ranch,3 homes, 14 Stall Barn, Rodeo Arena &Mountain Views

Lowgap, Surry County, North Carolina

Panoramic views of the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains make this incredibly beautiful and scenic horse & cattle ranch a genuinely unique property that any horse lover, cowboy or cowgirl would be blessed to call both home and place of business too. The natural terrain of the property runs fairly level to somewhat rolling hills, suitable for horses, cattle and even growing crops in some areas of the land. Mostly cleared land(approximately 80%), makes this land perfect for pastureland throughout, and deer hunting( in the rear of the property where more wooded), not to mention trout fishing on the mile long stream which runs through the property. 3 ponds accompany large cleared landscape of pastureland. This property has a 2 horse race track, RODEO/RIDING ARENA fully equipped with outdoor bleachers and concession stand, which has entertained large crowds of folks coming from miles around for these events. In addition to the Rodeo/riding arena, this location comes with a huge 14 stall horse barn, which sits close by the rodeo/riding arena and concession stand. The concession stand also has a covered porch handy for some tables & chairs for sit down eating & leisure, which overlooks the large trout stream which runs through the property. Aside from the arena and 14 horse stall barn, an additional huge "party" barn with finished interior and concrete floor is perfect for large parties, weddings, church gatherings and events. It comes fully equipped with food service bar and step-up stage for either wedding ceremonies or live music bands for parties or entertaining/events, ideal for wedding bookings & event renting for additional income. 3 homes accompany the ranch, with the main house being a 1998 custom built 3 bedroom/ 2 bath, 2 car attached garage, 2,368 square foot log cabin which sits atop of a slight hill that has spectacular panoramic scenic views of the surrounding North Carolina & Virginia Blue Ridge Mountains. We can't help but call these "million dollar views", mainly for the gorgeous splendor of overlooking God's bounty and beautiful creation, which is unmatched by so many ranch & farm facilities & homes, but also for being able to overlook the event center barn, and rodeo/riding arena areas too. The log cabin was built in 1998 and features a very large 2 story master bedroom on the main level, and the other 2 bedrooms in the half story upstairs level with somewhat of a bit of a loft type appeal on the hallway & stairs section that overlook the 2 story living room down below. The living room, dining room, and master bedroom are 2 stories tall with cathedral type wooded & open beamed ceilings and huge picture windows allowing in lots of natural lighting and views of evening stars. The kitchen is very large and opens to the back entry and eating area, as well as the dining room. There is plenty of decking and covered porches to enjoy the surrounding scenic views. The home has a front deck which overlooks the mountain range, and a huge covered and screened in porch at the rear of the home which overlooks nearby fenced horse pastureland and is only steps away from the fully decked above ground pool. There is also another very large covered porch which is at the side of the home with both front and rear views and has a large portable spa for relaxation. On the practical side, the custom log cabin is not only naturally built with good insulation to conserve on energy costs, but also comes with a "water-stove" furnace, which uses wood and steam to heat the home and hot water. The water-stove is only steps away from the house in a large outbuilding, ideal for stocking & storing wood as well as extra storage. The other 2 homes on the property are perfect for large or extended families, guests, ranch help, or great for rentals too. Both of these 2 homes had new roofs installed in 2016! One house is a 1930- 3 bedroom/ 1 bath farmhouse with a front covered porch, and the other home is a 3 bedroom/ 2 bath log sided double-wide with front covered porch that was built in 1992.There are 3 wells on the property, one of which is a shared well between the main log cabin home and the double-wide log sided home.
