This may be the ultimate East Coast SHTF retreat. (How many other properties feature a natural cave complex?) This massive cave system extends almost ½ mile into the mountain and features numerous rooms in the 30’x50’ range with ceiling heights exceeding 20 feet. Used as a saltpeter mine during the civil war, this cave has a heavy stone entrance that is easily fortified and could be enlarged to allow walk-in access and movement of equipment and supplies.
Above ground, the 89 acre wooded property is an ideal retreat as well as a great mountain vacation home and a shooters paradise. With a complete tactical shooting range and a 300 yard rifle range in place. Located in the Greenbrier River Valley near Lewisburg WV, the site is 14 miles off of Interstate 64 and easily accessible from numerous major metropolitan areas including Washington DC, Baltimore, Richmond, Pittsburg, Charlotte, and Raleigh Durham.
The ½ mile long graded gravel access road is secured with a solar powered, key card controlled gate, and the property perimeter is naturally protected by the surrounding rugged terrain and high cliffs. Natural features include over 2000 feet of road frontage on Hwy 63, several year-round springs, a spring fed pond, and an extremely large fully mapped natural cave complex, plus easy access to the nearby Greenbrier River. The year-round flowing stream (with several hundred feet of fall) offers potential for micro-hydropower. A recent timber analysis indicated $80,000 in timber value. Additionally, this property can be enrolled in a timber management program to minimize property taxes. Asking $349,000 OBO.
