175.75 acres in the Smoky Mountains of Western North Carolina

Topton, Macon County , North Carolina



Property description

Multiple options for this pristine unrestricted 175.75 acres located in the bucolic forests of Western North Carolina’s Smoky Mountains. This property is being marketed as four discrete acreages. 82.75 acres, 14 acres, 54.7 acres, and 24.3 acres. Each parcel can be purchased separately or as-a-whole. These perfectly situated properties have the potential to be developed as equestrian facilities, cattle/sheep ranch, tree and forest far, or any agricultural pursuit imaginable.

As an unrestricted property located in a thriving recreational area it has tremendous potential for sub-dividing and development into a highly desirable residential community.

This region of the Smoky Mountains is known for its endless opportunities for outdoor recreation. Whether it is horseback riding, hiking, camping, backpacking, hunting, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, river rafting, ropes courses, or mountain biking this is the place to indulge your passions for the great outdoors.

Nantahala Lake is less than 2 miles and the Marina only 4 miles. The nationally acclaimed Nantahala Outdoor Recreation Center (NOC) is a pleasant and scenic 16-mile drive.

The world renowned Appalachian Trail runs only a short distance from these properties. It crosses HWY 19/74 close to the NOC and can be accessed at several points off Wayah Road via old logging roads that are drivable to their respective gaps (Telco, Burningtown, and Wayah Bald).

The 54.7 acres parcel was designed as an equestrian community. The road has been graded and lots divided out. 10 acres of this parcel have been cleared for pasture and the remainder is ready for residential development. The parcel has lots of potential for development as it was originally planned.

The 82.75 acres parcel had a dwelling at one time so there is septic and power. The water source was a fresh water spring that continues to flow. On this parcel is a gorgeous grove of Balsam Pines that was planted as a Christmas Tree farm many years ago and never harvested.
