From Heaven To Valhalla In The Far Blue Mountains

Listing Tools

Part 1— The Land
000 Arrowhead Ridge

 

Views that rival the Switzerland Inn and anything else along the Blue Ridge Parkway, except in a better location!  NO, SERIOUSLY!  From the highest peaks here in the Blue Ridge Mountains you have a 180° of PERFECT LAYERED VIEWS starting at the beginning of the Blacks (The Mt. Mitchell Range) on the South to the majestic Bluffs of the Roan and the Roan High Bald on the North, and all the way out to the Valhalla Dome and into the Unaka Mountian Range and into Tennessee.  

 

Mere mortal photography cannot do it justice.  You must see this place to believe! 

 

Positioned just below 4,000 feet in elevation, directly between Spruce Pine and Burnsville, and 1.9 miles off  US Hwy. 19-E, this VERY RARE perfectly located property with an ULTRA VIEW will not last long!  11.68 Acres with a four-bedroom septic in place, along with electricity to the property and one of the best community roads in the area built directly to this TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN estate quality land. 

 

A naturally formed level ridge-top building site, which has been underbrushed and is ready for your imagination to got to work on how you will choose to develop out this dream property. 

 

This mountain top experiences a distinct four seasons, without the extremes.  You will 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.

 

Privacy without remoteness and convenience without the crowd. Covenants that are light on rules and restrictions, but strong on the deed protections and very accommodating (attached below). 

 

This place really is the perfect package with an extremely well-built road and excellently well maintained (a major expense deleted from the equation), electric to the property (another major expense checked off), and a three—bedroom septic already in place, awaiting your first build out of a potential 5 homes that could be accomidated (yes, another expense covered).  The only expense left for you is drilling a well and your construction. 

 

As you take in the photography accompanying this listing, you can appreciate the View-Shed (the mountains you are looking out at as the view), that is mostly U.S. National Forrest Lands, or properties that have been placed into the care of a conservancy— so one need not worry about the clutter of houses plastered on the side of nearly every mountain as you find in and around Asheville, or Boone and Blowing Rock. 

 

Further, your View-Scape (what you are looking out for from), affords you plenty of land for you to maintain that view with the cutting of trees or topping them.

 

Thus your unrivaled View-Shed is your primary asset, and the security of that asset is in your View-Scape.  There are multiple places to position an estate quality home, or multiple homes, and take advantage of this magnificent view.   

 

Layer upon layer, each a different coloration, of what the Native Americans in this area called “The Land of the Unending Mountains.”  You can stare at this view over and over and never see the same view twice!

 

This underbrushed high-mountain meadow is laid out for you awaiting your imagination for creating a livable masterpiece built to your taste and specifications— the possibilities are limitless!  It is time to STAKE YOUR LEGACY on the top of this ancient mountain.  The land also affords itself as the perfect habitat for all the wildlife native to this area. 

5 minutes to Spruce Pine, 5 minutes to The Penland School of Crafts, 5 minutes to the Blue Ridge Regional Hospital, 7 minutes to The Blue Ridge Parkway,  15 minutes to Burnsville, 45 minutes to Asheville, 2 hours from Charlotte. 

 

Part II— The Community
Estatoe

 

When looking at any small town throughout the South, on always fins that there are certain communities that are the older established areas based on local industry, or the hottest selling area based on school systems, or the most affordable residential places based on income.  This community checks all the boxes.   

The land is located just four miles outside of Spruce Pine in a place called Estatoe.  A historic past of fierce mountain independence, farming and mining.  

Just three miles from the home is the world famous Penland School of Crafts— one of the nation’s premier and prestigious schools of art with a diverse student body from all over the world, with many famous and talented people attending at various times.  

 

Part III— The Town
Spruce Pine, NC

Just four miles from your home is the town of Spruce Pine, which 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. 

Major employers for the area, outside of retail and hospitality include Bombardier Motor Corp. of America (makers of Can-Am & SeeDo), along with Buck Stove Corporation, Sibelco North America, and the Quartz Corp. USA— all having established their companies and livelihood here amongst all those so fortunate to call this place home, and providing good incomes to nearly 4,000 individuals.  In addition, within less that 10 miles, another 4,000+ people are employed at Baxter’s Healthcare and at two major state correctional facilities located just across the county line. 

Opening next summer, the YMCA will provide a brand new wellness center featuring top-of-the-line cardio equipment, weight machines, free weights, and an indoor track, as well as an aquatic center featuring pool exercise and  play for all ages of children an adults.  This facility will also have an indoor athletic center. 

Just five miles from this home is the Blue Ridge Regional Hospital & Medical Campus, in addition to top tier medical services, the campus hosts the East Carolina University School of Dentistry along with other medical facilities and offices, not only providing the region’s main healthcare, but also serving as another major employment center for 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.
