34+/- acres of pristine forest, creek and ridgeline, located less than a mile from the Tennessee line and the Appalachian Trail!  Some 800+/- acres of US Forest Service land surround this parcel on 3 sides (with another contiguous 500+/- acres on the TN side of the state line), providing you with unparalleled privacy and a gigantic natural playground to explore and make your own.  The cleared building site at the top of the parcel provides mountain views that must be seen to be believed: check it out at https://youtu.be/_I91n1EExEQ?si=sM0OSeZU7EnipLSi  (Northy Cove). The graded road to the top makes access a breeze. Add some solar panels to your mountain dream home design, and make it an off-grid haven! The springfed 4-season creek provides plenty of water, and a deep spring-fed pond is waiting for you to stock it with trout.  Consider building near the pond in a mossy grotto where you can listen to the soothing music of the creek! The mature trees provide a rich habitat for deer, turkey and bear, as well as excellent foraging for native plants and mushrooms. You could even cultivate your own valuable ginseng here! Although the location feels like it is worlds away, it is only 15 minutes to Unicoi TN and 30 minutes to the restaurants, shopping, music and arts in Johnson City TN.  The right of way to this parcel crosses Federal land; sellers have a permit from the USFS, and buyers will need to renew the permit in their own names.
