The Town

Your home and mountain top property lie just outside the capitol city of Mitchell County— the quaint village of Bakersville with a population of around 400 souls.  The town is located in western North Carolina, approximately 60 miles northeast of Asheville, NC and 25 miles southeast of Johnson City, TN, located in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains. 

The small town has partially become an artist’s enclave, fusing effortlessly into the ancient mountain culture. The town features local shopping, dining, banking, a court house, and a public library.  The town hosts the annual NC Rhododendron Festival, and is the gateway city to the famous Roan Mountain where one can hike the AT (Appalachian Trial) and enjoy the largest naturally-occurring rhododendron garden in the world. 

 

The Area

Meadlock Mountain, part of the Unaka Mountain Range is #62 out of 102 most prominent mountain peaks of Mitchell County.  Mitchell County has an average year-round temperature of 52 degrees and it receives an average of 46.7 inches of rain annually.  Elevation ranges from 1,700 at its lowest valleys to 6,313 feet above sea level with an average elevation of 3,000 feet.

Mitchell County is the 4th smallest county in the state (land mass) and it covers 221.42 square miles.
  

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 largest town in the county is Spruce Pine, and it is your next closest town to this property, just 20 minutes away, and it is the largest “small town” between Asheville, NC and Boone, NC with a burgeoning economy and a strong index for growth.  It is a place for artists to pour out their art and soul with an inspiration that only these ancient mountains can provide.  Spruce Pine began life as a train town, but the whole area had already established itself as a gem stone and mining center, as well as a timber resource many years before. 

Here you will find the Blue Ridge Regional Hospital, along with Walmart Super Center, Ingles Grocery, multiple doctors and lawyers offices, along with a vibrant downtown featuring many good eats and unique shopping experiences.  

Bombardier Motor Corp. of America (makers of Can-Am & SeeDo), along with Buck Stove Corporation, Sibelco North America, and The Quartz Corp. USA have established their companies and livelihood here amongst all those so fortunate to call this place home. They are the significant employers in the area.   

In addition to the natural beauty being located just off the Blue Ridge Parkway and a hop-skip and jump across the county from the Appalachian Trail, the town has a burgeoning and vibrant dining and entertainment scene.  

Breathtaking views of the most beautiful place on earth bring tourism and inspire coveted retirement havens; and trains, mines, timber, and industry together have made up the economic wealth of this entire region.

 Spruce Pine, NC really is in the center of it all here in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina and Eastern Tennessee.  

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 and live.  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.  Such natural capital as exists here keeps our market strong even during economic downturns.
