187 acre Diamond in the Rough

2015-08-23 13.27.17Come and take a look at this amazing 187 acres that’s both, surveyed and unrestricted land, in a small very like-minded farming community.

This property was at one time being developed to be a Christian Retreat and as such boasts several buildings and outbuildings in addition to a farm house originally built in 1895.
The farm house has had a large addition added onto it and, is not yet completed, but will make it around 3500 sq ft per tax records when finished according to your taste.

aerialAnother building behind it has been built on a slab foundation and made out of cinderblock has water, electric, area for a woodstove, as well as a rollaway door and several windows. It would make an ideal workshop.

There are also two barns, one newer and a larger older barn in need of repair. Also on the property is a large building that would make a great office as well as three other smaller buildings.
All structures on the property have the added benefit of new or existing metal roofs.

There is a strong flowing year round creek flowing through the middle of the property offering potential for micro-hydro power. Since you can never have too much water on a property… Mother Nature threw in several springs throughout the property as well, three of which have spring boxes.

2015-08-23 13.30.56A few other features of this property include gated front entrance off a local road whose entrance itself is across a one lane bridge. The property is mostly wooded with a wide variety of hardwood that hold timber value as well as a trail system throughout the property. Around the house you’ll find a couple of each of pecan, walnut, and apple trees.There are several areas that would make great additional home sites and yet other areas that could make great pasture land once the timber has been harvested. The unique and varied terrain of this acreage, in addition to privacy and seclusion, could also allow one to put in a series of stream fed ponds if one was so inclined. Locals also speak of a cave on the property but exact location is unknown at this time.

This is unique one of a kind property priced at the value of the land only. With a little vision and some time and effort this diamond in the rough could be turned into a very desirable Gentleman’s farm, retreat, or family compound. How sustainable and off grid is
entirely up to you.

Shortly after having founded Eastern Tennessee Preppers, I began receiving requests from members and nonmembers alike to help them find property in the area for their retreat locations. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to get my real estate license so I can help people relocate to this beautiful area we call East Tennessee. Whether you are buying or selling, I have the knowledge and insight to either find the perfect place to hang your hat or the means to find a buyer who values the property just as much as you do.
