Welcome to Falling Waters, A State Treasure & Unprecedented Offering.
Never before offered in its entirety, Falling Waters is 6,500 +/- contiguous acres and the last remaining large acreage tract in North Western North Carolina. With a rich heritage dating back to Daniel Boone, it is a magnificent haven with a perimeter protected by natural geography, and totally unencumbered by conservation easements.
The interior of the property has been meticulously maintained with miles of trails, paths, and roads, all with grades of 8% or less that provide accessibility to most areas. Rolling hills, five major waterfalls (largest is 180 feet), 20+/- miles of cool water trout-filled streams, several lakes, and miles of top-of-the-mountain trails combine to create wonderful hiking or horseback riding through old timber growth and peaceful meadows, gleaming 360-degree views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Falling Waters is located near the Blue Ridge Parkway, with 15 to 20-minute travel times to the towns of Boone, Blowing Rock, West Jefferson, and Wilkesboro, each offering desirable shopping, dining, entertainment, and medical facilities. The nearby state parks, national forests, and ski slopes offer every imaginable outdoor activity. Local airport will accommodate private jets, and the Piedmont Triad and Charlotte Douglas International Airports are just over an hour's drive.
Falling Waters is a one- to two-hour drive to the three largest metropolitan areas of North Carolina: The Piedmont Triad (Greensboro, Winston Salem, High Point), the Charlotte Metro Area, and the Research Triangle Park (Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill). With nearly eleven million people, North Carolina is one of the fastest-growing states in the country, and this mountain area is especially desirable for those wishing to buy and build a vacation or retirement home. Because of Falling Water’s unique elevation, it enjoys mild winters with minimum snow accumulation, relatively warm springs and falls, and distinctively cool summers compared to the surrounding valleys.
The county has an encouraging and cooperative attitude toward land use and regulations, water is abundant, there are several workable options for sewage, natural gas is available and fiber optic service is available on most public roadways which adjoin the property. There is considerable timber value identified by a local forester and available for review. Improvements to Falling Waters include two very livable dwellings, three areas with shelters and agricultural-related buildings, and an off-grid cabin with support structures. Six lakes and miles of cascading trout streams add to the character of this acreage.
The possibilities for Falling Waters are limited only by the imagination, ranging from a single buyer creating the ultimate in seclusion safe-haven compound to a site for multiple homeplaces with pastures for livestock, to a self-sustaining planned development community. Journey to Falling Waters and let your exploration begin.
