Looking for a ranch in western North Carolina?  Here you go!  Located in the foothills between the South Mountains and the Black Mountain Range, this 330 acre family farm makes for an ideal self-sustainable compound.  Located ten to fifteen minutes from the wonderful town of Morganton, the property is approximately 50 minutes east of Asheville.  This area is known as the Isothermal Belt, a natural phenomenon wherein temperatures remain mild all year and the growing season is longer than most.  Its also known as the "Golden Triangle".

The 330 acres have been used for decades as a cattle farm and features approximately 88 acres of cross fenced pasture.  The remainder is a mixture of hard and softwood timber parcels.  There are over 5,200 feet of Silver Creek traversing through the heart of the property along with other springs and creeks.  The topography is a mixture of gently rolling hills, knolls and flat as a pancake bottom land.  All of it is easily accessible in an SUV.

There is an existing five bedroom, four bath house with double garage overlooking the farm and the supporting farm buildings below.  These buildings include a large Morton building with high clearance and a 30' clear span with sliding doors.  Imagine an airplane hanger.  There is a well kept pole barn along with three sided equipment sheds.  Rounding it all out is the original homestead from the early 20th century.

The property offers multiple building sites, all of which are well hidden from neighboring views.  This is a very private, yet easily accessible property that could support multiple families in a grid down situation.  There are no private restrictions, and the county zoning is Open Use meaning, you're pretty much free to build and use the property as you wish.
