There is nothing else like this left in Mitchell or Yancey Counties! Foxfire Elite Marketing is pleased to offer up this wonderful palatial estate of magnificent beauty which is a smaller rival to the properties of Biltmore, except in a much better and safer place in the mountains. Made up of +/- 36.32 acres with a beautiful fishing pond and small island- the perfect place for reflection and family gatherings. Just a little over ⅓ mile of the coveted Crabtree trout waters ribbons this property for your fly fishing fun, or take the canoe or kayak from your own property and in a very short distance enter the Toe River and from there you can travel all the way to the Gulf of Mexico if you so desire.
Your estate is made up of beautiful meadows and wildlife grazing areas, improved over the past 20 years by the owners with clearing, trails/roads for hiking and ATV/UTV fun, or farm animals, and utilization of the massive producing spring for some of the finest drinking water in the country. The current owners have enjoyed sporting clays/skeet shooting over the years on this property. Your property adjoins other like multi-million dollar estates in both Mitchell and Yancey Counties, with absolutely no restrictions! It is here that you are surrounded by nature's living room- now is the time to see and smell the blooms of the dogwood, rhododendron and mountain laurel. You and your family will enjoy searching for gem stones and possibly gold in the waters of the Crabtree that cross your property.
The home is an open floor plan design and each of the windows frame the beauty of the natural capital that surrounds every aspect on this land. it is here that you can embrace indoor/outdoor living with an appropriately sized screened in porch just off the formal dining room. The kitchen takes convenience to a new level with new stainless appliances and cherry cabinets. The home also features rounded corner walls, 2BD/2BA on the main level with an additional bonus room used as a large bedroom and another office on the lower level. Oak hardwood, tile and carpet are the flooring throughout the home.
This home and land improvement have been purposefully designed for entertainment and family gatherings, but one can imagine company meetings, business retreats, and wedding venues being appropriate events here as well.
Your property currently has a Wildlife Habitation Conservation Agreement in place which is light in restrictions and provides a tax savings, but it can be easily removed with some revenue reimbursement.
Your investment will also gain you a canoe & tractor in the deal.
What about the area? Here we have a distinct 4 seasons, without the extremes. We have a fairly mild climate except on those rare winter days when the altitude gets the better of our latitude, but for the most part, you will have year round comfort assurance.
The areas surrounding Spruce Pine offer breathtaking views and pristine waters, centered in the highest peaks of the mountains of North Carolina, we are a safe place to adventure. With our low taxes, low crime rate, emphasis on freedom, and improving infrastructure we are a place to grow and have opportunity.
People move here to get away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the world. Our realm is safe, clean, and still retains a degree of the ancient wild. People desire our beautiful mountain views, and clear pristine waters. Here in this estate you have both forms of the "natural capital," which is uniquely prevalent in WNC, but not normally to the extent that this property offers. Such natural capital as exists here keeps our market strong even during economic downturns.

The estate is only 5 miles to downtown Spruce Pine shopping and dining, or 8 miles to the beautiful town square and modern dining and shopping conveniences of downtown Burnsville.
